Available Times + Booking:
From time to time, the Blue Ridge Parkway closes a section of the Parkway due to weather, fallen trees, road construction, etc. In the event of a road closure that prevents our tour from commencing, we will notify you ASAP up to 2 days in advance if /when possible. If we cannot reschedule with you for another time during your stay, and if we have to cancel the tour as a result, you can receive a credit for a future tour or be refunded in full (less a 5% fee).
However, in an emergency closing, if the parkway closes a section of the parkway after their last early morning posting and the tour is shortened as a result, there is no refund.
