Keith was an amazing guide, made us feel like he was apart of the family. Made sure we were safe and still having a blast at the same time. He was a very funny and down to earth guy no pun intended lol. Learned a lot from him and went to one of the waterfalls that was filmed in the hunger games! That was awesome. Had great snacks and drinks. Loved that he offered to take the pics of me and my husband without us even having to ask. Thank you Keith we appreciate you. Love Megan 😊

A perfect capsule of the Asheville region
Joanne_L
, Oct 2021
We joined Keith and another couple in his very comfortable van for a wonderful day viewing waterfalls and the beautiful scenery along the Blue Ridge Parkway and throughout the Smoky Mountain National Park and Pisgah National Forest. Keith was an engaging guide and naturalist who included a recitation of some local lore. His 43 years in the region gave him unparalleled knowledge for the tour. I would highly recommend this as a way a nice cross section of the region in a short amount of time. Thanks Keith for the great experience.
