Our guide’s, Chris, knowledge of birds and plants was extraordinary and entertaining. The waterfalls beauty cannot be captured in pictures along with the majesty of the mountains. Experiencing it on this tour was the highlight of of our trip and Chris made it so.

Mary Kait was wonderful. Small group of six people made the hike easier to navigate because there were many hikers passing by. The hiking stick really helped on a steep climb.

Our guide, Chris, was phenomenal! His vast knowledge of the waterfalls, Blue Ridge Parkway & the history of the Pisgah National Forest was incredible! In addition, Chris has been college educated in ecological studies, so it was a wonderful bonus to learn about various birds, wildlife, plants and butterflies. Chris was personable, had a great attitude and disposition and was happy to answer many, many questions from the tour participants. This trip was a great way to spend the day and Chris was the absolute best guide! Can’t wait to come back to Western Carolina!

Our guide, Paul, was fabulous! We loved the waterfalls and the beautiful scenery. But the best part was Paul's knowledge of the plants, geography, animals, etc. He was literally a walking encyclopedia of the natural world. I highly recommend this experience!
