Take the Gray Line Trolley’s Grand Tour of Asheville, NC

by Jack MoeThe Gray Line Trolley Grand Tour is the very best way to explore this Vacation Mecca.

So, you’ve seen the magazine ads, the top ten lists, and the TV commercials. You’ve heard your friends rave about it and at least one of your relatives has already moved there. It is Asheville, NC, and this amazing little city nestled up in the Appalachian Mountains has made quite a name for itself.

Asheville, NC has become one of the hottest destinations for tourists and travelers from all over the world. Beautiful mountain scenery, incredible architecture, rich history and a thriving creative community combine to make this a place to satisfy every personality.

With so much to do, from restaurants to concerts to shops to museums to galleries….it can be a bit overwhelming! Luckily, you have some local friends who are certified experts on the local landscape and history. There is no better way to get to know the infamous Asheville, then to take a Gray Line Trolley Tour.

The Gray Line Trolley Tour is the ideal way to get around Asheville, and get to know it at the same time. Take the complete, comprehensive 1 to 2 hour tour and learn everything you always wanted to know about the history and architecture of the area. Our tour guides are knowledgeable, friendly and fun. Each has their own unique take on this charming town, so no two tours are exactly the same!

The Trolley runs 7 days a week, all day long. Each ticket includes unlimited hop on/ hop off privileges, so it’s the perfect way to reach all of the most famous spots in Asheville without having to drive. Explore the beautiful Grove Park Inn and resort, then hop on and go see the Thomas Wolfe state historic site. Continue this way all day, exploring the Colburn Earth Science Museum, The famous Biltmore Estate, the historic St. Lawrence Basilica and more.

The trolley stops right downtown, so take some time to walk around our quaint village and check out the independently owned and operated boutiques and art galleries, or tour some of the incredible and inspiring studios. Enjoy a gourmet espresso drink or cocktail at one of the many sidewalk café’s along the city streets. There is a reason Asheville is constantly being likened to small European city.

The Gray Line Trolley is reasonably priced, with discounts available for AAA members, children and groups of 15 or more. The group discount trolley tour makes this the ideal way to entertain out of town guests, move wedding parties from one place to another, plan an event for family reunions or have a successful office retreat. Give some passes to visiting guests and save them the trouble of parking and navigating in a new city.
