LaZoom Tours’s bright-purple bus transports sightseers to artsy, intriguing, and ghost-filled spots during lively local treks helmed by sharp-witted guides. Art tours slither through creativity-rich centers in downtown, the River Arts District, and West Asheville, stopping at three studios filled with such sights as painters painting, sculptors sculpting, and papier-mâchéists papier-mâchéing unsuspecting painters. A local artist leads the jaunt, which also includes locally produced snacks and live music on the bus.
Bring along a beverage and learn about Asheville history on a city tour, with vibrant tour leaders performing skits and cramming eardrums with local knowledge. Meanwhile, the haunted comedy tour introduces passengers ages 17 and older to the ghosts, ghouls, and gory goings-on of the downtown. Hear stories of murder and scandal while snapping photos of eerie locales and gregarious poltergeists.
