Very disappointed! The 'Holly Jolly Christmas Trolley Tour', touted as "featuring the lights & sights of the holidays", was a big letdown! It was just the regular 'day tour' but at night, when it was difficult to really see the places being pointed out in the dark. As far as the "lights & sights of the holidays"..there really weren't any! We quickly passed a very few trees/buildings with a few strings of X-mas lights but they were minimal & the trolley passed them quickly. I have never seen a city as DARK as Asheville at Christmas!! We were expecting a special tour that would take us to the best Christmas sites, the most festive decorations in the city. Apparently, the city doesn't decorate much for Christmas... It was dark; difficult to see places in that darkness as we went whizzing by; hard to hold a flashlight & a stapled bunch of pages with carols on them, while 'holding on' the bumpy, twisty ride without falling into the aisle. It was SO NOT WORTH IT! Would prefer 'piped in' Christmas carols & a tour that actually goes to bright, festive Christmas sites, decorated with lots of beautiful X-mas lights & other X-mas decor, & lit up enough to actually be able to SEE & to have the trolley stop a few minutes at each place so riders could appreciate & enjoy the decor & a REAL Christmas tour...

The best tour I've been on in any city! I'd do it again if I loved or visited Asheville again.
