This tour was so much easier than trying to navigate finding waterfalls and trails on my own. It took the work out of it and we were just able to enjoy. Eli was an outstanding tour guide. Would definitely recommend this tour!

It was an invigorating walking and an educational event. Our guide Paul was very knowledgeable. He was informative and included all the group members in the conversations. He was also concerned about our needs and limitations. Bill did a good job mentoring Paul. Paul is a fine young Man and a credit to his profession.

This is a wonderful, beautiful experience. Eli, our tour guide, is awesome. She is great at identifying plants, knows the hidden gems and makes this experience rememberable. The Parkways was closed so we missed that portion of the tour, but it still was a memorable tour. Love the meeting spot also.
