  • We had the best time walking around Asheville with Sue Ann exploring different wellness related shops! Our experience at each stop was fabulous! Everyone was friendly and full of fabulous knowledge! We will definitely be going back to visit the different places we stopped at during our tour. The highlight was doing yoga in the park! Sue Ann was a fabulous tour guide! She was full of knowledge and so warm and friendly--we could have spent all day with her! We would highly recommend this tour to anyone interested in learning more about Asheville and wellness!

  • My daughter and I loved this peaceful interlude in our visit to Asheville where we were charmed by the passion so many here have for positivity and wellness. Sarah was an awesome yogi, guide, photographer, and now I will say friend! She brought peace and serenity to us through her sweet spirit and our visits to Dobra tea, the park, the Herbiary, and the Bee Charmer. We had a beautiful morning!

  • This was a perfect day for me. I had a 1:1 tour with Kimberly. She was a fountain of knowledge and a pleasure to spend time with. After meeting and enjoying some tea at Dobra Teahouse, we met Mary, at Herbiary AVL, who taught us the differences between hydrosols and essential oils, while sharing properties and samples of both. Then we visited the Bee Charmer, where Tammy opened my eyes to the wide array of honeys, especially those made locally. They were all sooooo tasty. Finally, we ended at Cornerstone Minerals. All along the route, Kimberly pointed out the history and great architecture of the city. She kindly shared much of her personal journey and answered a slew of questions. As I prepare to move to Asheville very very soon, this tour was part of a scouting expedition and exceeded my expectations. Thank you!

  • I had such an incredible experience on this tour just a week ago. Our “tour guides” felt more like friends that I have had in my life for forever. From the moment I sat down at this beautiful tea shop to the Herbiary, to the yoga in the park, to the Asheville Bee Charmer, etc. I was in heaven. The Wellness community in Asheville is truly special and I recommend anyone take this tour when they are in town. It was truly delightful and I am really grateful for the experience

  • My husband and I visited Asheville for the first time to celebrate my birthday. He found Asheville Wellness Tours when searching for Asheville activities--a blog had it listed in a top 10 must do while in town, so he planned the whole thing for us (and I loved it)! We love visiting new cities--we eat and drink what comes recommended my friends, locals, etc. in order to catch the town's vibe, but sometimes we feel like that's all we do! As active individuals, we thought this would be a great way to do what we love, but also keep our bodies moving & learn something along the way. Kim & Asheville Wellness Tours were top notch! My husband discussed some popular options with Kim via email prior to the trip, and we opted for an add-on at the end of the tour and enjoyed a foot soak. We visited a tea shop, an herbal shop, a honey shop, and did some light yoga in the heart of downtown. Kim was full of knowledge about tons of things in the area--murals, architectural styles, events going on the particular weekend we were there, even pigs & how they are a part of Asheville's history (yep, ask her about it!). If you are looking for a truly beneficial tour of Asheville that will show you the best that the city has to offer, definitely book with Asheville Wellness Tours. Thank you so much for showing us all around Asheville, Kim--we had a blast!
