My friend and I did the Waterfall Mania Tour with Brass Monkey Photography, Natasha was our amazing tour guide. She picked us up at our area hotel and drove us, along with another booked guest, to the DuPont National Forest where we began our hike which took us to our first stop at Triple Falls. We had time to take pictures and she was available to answer photography questions to us who's main focus was on photographing the magnificent falls. Our next stop was High Falls. The trail was listed as moderate and our pace was very good. She was proactive and accommodating to all hikers equally; she provided walking sticks, bottled water and answered any questions we had. She was amazingly knowledgeable about the Asheville and surrounding areas. We experienced a rain shower while viewing the High Falls and she had ponchos available for everyone. After our return hike to the parking lot, our next stop was Looking Glass Falls; Pisgah National Forest. Again, we found the experience awesome; the beauty, the relaxed atmosphere; the interactions and the bonding we had experienced among us by this time was all good. After leaving this area we headed out to find a comfortable place to conclude our tour with a picnic lunch, provided by Natasha. I would have no reservation booking another tour with Brass Monkey Photography and would highly recommend the service to anyone who is interested in waterfalls and hiking the area trails.
Our guide Natasha was awesome! As we drove and hiked she told us about the area and was a delight to talk to. She also provided recommendations for our stay in Asheville. Additionally, she supplied us with a wonderful spread for lunch that included gluten-free items for me and my sister. I highly recommend using her!
