Keith is extremely knowledgeable about the entire area and we really enjoyed the information he shared. He has a great sense of humor and is very interested in making sure hike participants are comfortable and happy. This was a fantastic way to start our Asheville trip. Very highly recommend- worth every penny!!

We had a wonderful time on this hike!
Beautiful views, a knowledgeable and patient guide who geared the adventure around the needs of our (small) group. We left the hike with a better appreciation of the history of the forest and natural beauty of the area. Looking forward to going on more adventures with Keith and Tumblestone Tours👍🏻❗️

Blue Ridge Waterfalls hike and extensive review of the area was fantastic. Keith was so well adversed knowing the area well. Very informative and caring for his 4 passengers. Also had some snacks and adhered to social distancing, requiring masks and made sure at all times we were cared for. Picked us up on time and made sure we were back to our hotel location always making sure we were OK and did we have any additional questions.

Keith was knowledgeable and passionate about the beautiful natural setting he led us through. Although we are “seniors”, we were able to keep a good pace with his guidance to 3 separate waterfalls
