“Booking the experience with Trey made our hike much more relaxing. He chose a beautiful hike, that was timed perfectly and reminded us we were there to enjoy an experience. We stopped along the trail to appreciate the beauty and the moment and we lingered at the top while the sun set. Had I gone on my own, I would likely have rushed through the hike missing out on so much. Trey created a calming, peaceful experience to be remembered. I will definitely plan to hike with him again when we return.” – Kim, IN

“Trey is open, kind , and patient.” – Haley, GA

“We booked a private tour because this was our daughter’s first hike (she’s 19months). We are first time parents and were a bit nervous we were going to hold the group up. Our initial interaction with Trey was very warm and welcoming. He understood our need for this experience and understood our situation with our little girl. He was always quick to respond and found a perfect hike that felt as if it was made specifically for us. When we first met, he set the tone of the hike and we were able to leave everything from the outside world off of the mountain. Even our daughter relaxed and remained calm during the entire duration. It felt as if we walked with a friend and time stood still as we hiked through the mountain. Trey was nothing short of amazing and provided us with much knowledge of the land around us and what to look for in a physical and mental state. As we ended our tour, he left us with knowledge of forgiveness that resonated with both of us. We took those words to heart and left the mountain with a clear head and pure heart. I would recommend this hike to everyone. It doesn’t matter the reasoning for the experience because Trey is an amazing person to have “hangout” with during that time.” – Nykita, DC

“I had a great time connecting with nature with Trey! He led me on a very peaceful, meditative walk, pausing at times to sit and drink in the surrounding beauty. His guidance was thoughtful and intentional. I am very appreciative of the experience connecting with both him and the beautiful nature in Asheville.” – Sarah, TX


"Trey has extensive knowledge about the Blue Ridge Mountains and hiking in the Asheville area. He is also very skilled in the art of meditation and the combination of the two is a beautiful experience. Trey is kind, considerate, trustworthy, and has a calm and grounded presence. If you're looking for a guide I highly recommend him and Zen Mountain Tours." ~ Dana, NC

"Based on my experience, I recommend this tour highly and will gladly attend again. Trey was just lovely and exuded such warmth and kindness. He offers a safe, light space for anyone in his presence. The group seemed as if I knew them well before meeting them, and there was a massive exchange of beautiful energy amongst the whole group. Although the retreat was mostly silent, there has never been so much said and felt amongst a group of “strangers”. Through this tour, I have found friendship, peace, and well being all in one place. To anyone looking for a soul family, this is your tour! " ~ Amal, NC

"I was flying in from LA to spend a memorable  mother daughter weekend. Neither my daughter or I have to Asheville but had heard great things. We wanted to explore the beautiful nature, yoga, massage and take in a little of the city. I contacted Trey from Zen Mountain Tours.  He personalized our itinerary and provided our transportation. There is some much to see and experience in Asheville.  Without Trey, it would have been exhausting and overwhelming rather than the peaceful and exhilarating vacation that it was. 

The meditation was new to us and the meditation driving was amazing!  I hope to incorporate mediation into my daily routine and hopefully my daughter will as well! Learned so much! With much gratitude." ~ Lori
