Here’s what people are saying!

This tour was one of my best tours I have taken as I travel around the USA.

Ken R. - Texas

Absolutely wonderful tour! Highly recommend this. Even in the pouring rain, we had a blast! (bars all have a covered area for rain).

Angie F.- Michigan

Great opportunity to see some new bars and learn a lot (casually) about the history of Asheville! Highly recommend.

So much fun!! A group of friends and I took the tour to celebrate my birthday. We have all lived in Asheville for quite some time so we’ve seen the city, but never like this! The views of the city were breathtaking.

FAQ


Is this a "drinking tour"?

"Sip & See the City From a Bird's - Eye View" can mean a "mocktail" (0% alcohol) as well as alcohol based drinks. Drinking while riding in our company vans isn’t permitted as you are being transported from one rooftop location to the next. If you choose to indulge in one or more of the incredible handcrafted cocktails, delicious locally brewed beers, and extensive wine lists that the rooftop establishments offer, we kindly ask that you please drink responsibly.

We understand that some visitors may only be in town for a short period of time and still want to have this rooftop experience even if there happens to be some liquid sunshine that day! We will, however, follow the lead of the rooftop bar locations we visit and keep you up to date on their individual inclement (bad) weather policies and adjust our tours accordingly.
