Information about the car and inclement weather:
The Model T is most comfortable for two people, but there is room for 3 people, if a smaller person sits up front next to the driver. We recommend a hat and sunglasses, as the Model T is open air and does not have heat or air conditioning. Tours are weather dependent and at the discretion of the driver. We will do our best to reschedule any tour that has to be cancelled due to poor weather. The tour may also be cut short if there is a threat of severe weather.
Cancellation Policy: Tours cancelled with 24 hours or less notice will not be refunded.
If there are other areas of Asheville you would like to see or are interested in customizing a tour, give us a call and we'd love to put something together! We also work with local area photographers and can assist with a photography/engagement package. Mountaineer Motor Tours make a great gift as well, if you would like to purchase a gift certificate.
