Bus Tours


If you ever wondered about the Wilma Dykeman RiverWay development project – this is your opportunity to see and hear about the plans for the future.

Tour the French Broad and Swannanoa Rivers with RiverLink and witness their magic firsthand. This is an opportunity to see the improvements that have occurred and hear what is coming over the next several months and years to make our rivers a better place to live, learn, work, and play. You will also learn some local history and visit some streets and neighborhoods you have never seen before.

Available Seats:
There is space for 12 participants on each tour.

Reservations (with confirmation from RiverLink) are a must.



  • Free for RiverLink members.
  • Non-members is $20 per person.

We accept payments online, as well as cash, check, and credit the day of the tour.

Time and Location

  • Registered participants meet at the Asheville Area Chamber of Commerce at 36 Montford Avenue (directions)  in the third level of the parking lot down the hill from the Chamber building.
  • Plan to arrive by 11:45 as the tour starts promptly at noon. The bus will return you to the Chamber at 2:30 p.m.
