WORTH THE MONEY!!!!
By SALLY Verified Reviewer from MONROE, NC on
Pros:
Cost
Best Uses:
Tweetsie Railroad WILDWATER RAFTING BILTMORE HOUSE LAZOOM TOURS
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Go Blue Ridge Card:

THIS CARD IS WORTH THE MONEY!!! THE DISTANCE BETWEEN SOME ATTRACTIONS CAN BE 100 MILES AWAY. PLANNING YOUR DAY AHEAD OF TIME IS CRUCIAL, ESPECIALLY TO MAKE THE MOST OF THE CARD. I THOUGHT I PLANNED MY DAYS, BUT WAS UNABLE TO DO HALF THE THINGS I WANTED. I FEEL THE CARD PAID FOR ITSELF AFTER 2 EVENTS!!!! WAS EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED THAT SOME ATTRACTIONS ADVERTISED WERE CLOSED, MAKE SURE TO CALL AHEAD, TO NOT MAKE THE SAME TIMELY MISTAKE THAT I MADE!!!! IF YOU ARE BARGAIN SAVVY, THIS IS SUCH A GREAT DEAL!!!

Well worth it.
By Home exchanger from Williamsburg, VA on
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Go Blue Ridge Card:

We purchased the 5 day pass. We would have saved more had we known about this before arriving in Asheville because we had to pay full price rather than the internet price plus we already had reserved a white water raft trip. Considering the Biltmore Estate cost takes up over a third of the price of the card, it is a great value. We packed a lot in each day. The only thing we did not get to do was go to one of the mining attractions but that is because of poor planning on our part and very foggy conditions on the Blue Ridge Parkway. There is a lot of traveling involved to make this a value. Bottom line is that we would not have done nearly as much on vacation if we did not have the card.

Time Will Be Spent Driving;(
By Kay's Crew from S.E. Florida on
Bottom Line:
No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Go Blue Ridge Card:

We were disappointed when we realized how much serious drive time that we were up for just to get our moneys worth from this card. If you are staying anywhere more than an hour outside of Asheville-good luck. You will be racing just to make it all worth it....the Biltmore trip is the best deal on the card.

Savings as good as my [...] card
By The Outdoor Folks Verified Reviewer from Deerfield Beach, FL on
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Go Blue Ridge Card:

We had so much fun that I wish we could buy a 7-day card at our 5-day card or lower rate. Our Whitewater rafting days on the listed NC rivers were good but would be greater if more rivers within the Great Smoky Mountain were also included in the activity book. Finally unlike other rivers, we found the 48-50 degree Nantahala water was somewhat FREEZING cold for our South Floridian blood!

Fabulous savings for Asheville!
By Luvdatropics Verified Reviewer from Washington, DC on
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Go Blue Ridge Card:

I love the mountains, so picked a week long vacation to one of the most scenic areas and chose the Go Blue Ridge card to do it all. We were able to do tons of the attractions and had a ball. You'll have to either stay at a hotel in one location and do all the attractions there or do a day trip to area A and do attractions, then a day trip to area B to do them. At most, you can only squeeze in 3 per day to enjoy them, and the Biltmore and the Great Smoky Mountain Railroad trip/tours take up a lot of the day, but are worthwhile. If you get any of the Go cards, make sure to do the most expensive attractions with them, otherwise, you're not saving much. Must do's: Biltmore Estate, Chimney Rock Park, Dillsboro River Company Rafting & Tubing, Great Smoky Mountains Railroad, Lake Lure Tours, LaZoom Comedy Tours of Asheville, Mountainside Theatre, NOC French Broad River Rafting, Oconaluftee Indian Village, Smoky Mountain Jet Boats, Wildwater Rafting There's so much you can do with the card. Make sure to get a 5 day card, and if you can't do it all on 5 individual days, get a 5 day and some other day combination. If we were spending more than two weeks there, we would have purchased two sets of 5 day cards, so that we could save on even more attractions. The Asheville area's a pretty fun place with a diverse culture, great architecture, fabulous dining options, and lots of festivals. There's never a bad time to visit. Oh, we stayed at Country Inn and Suites at Biltmore Square--great hotel with tons of ammenities and in a central location to all the attractions.

Not bad for first timers
By xraygirl Verified Reviewer from Orlando, Fl on
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Go Blue Ridge Card:

I was skeptical at first but it was useful using the card for three days. We loved all the places we went to at Blue Ridge. But the theater still charged us even though I called notifying them that I was a Blue Ridge card holder. But they are fixing it now.

BEWARE OF THE "SATISFACTION GURANTEE"
By Un-satisfied gurantee Verified Reviewer from blue ridge,tn on
Cons:
EXPIRES IN 2 WEEKS
Best Uses:
None
Bottom Line:
No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Go Blue Ridge Card:

BEWARE...the card expires 2 weeks after 1st use. Do not think you have until the original expiration card to use your days. Terrible customer service!

Smart Destinations Response: That is correct that you have two weeks from first use. We apologize if that wasn't clear.

Awesome
By Cindy Lou Verified Reviewer from Booneville, Ms... on
Pros:
This will save you money
Best Uses:
Go see the Baltimore
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Go Blue Ridge Card:

Make sure you plan your days wisely to get the most out of your card. You need a whole day to see the Baltimore Estate...If possible do the Cherokee Reservation...It is an awesome dance. The Card does not cover any extras at the house and reservation they will cost more....But you cant beat this deal at all......

Great Deal
By Johnson Verified Reviewer from Myrtle Beach, SC on
Pros:
No worries about prices, Easy to use, No cash needed at gates, Saves lots of money, Lots included
Cons:
After 530pm is to early,
Best Uses:
Emerald Village, Grandfather Mountain, Tweetsie Railroad, Ghost Town, Biltmore Estates
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Go Blue Ridge Card:

This is a worry free card. When you get to where you are going you just show the card, it's that easy. No digging through your pocket book or waiting in long lines to get in. The only flow was that after 5:30pm all places didn't except the card, so you have a time frame from 8:30-5:30 to shove everything you wanted to do into. That's not enough time, so pick your main attraction that day and do everything on the map on the way. Great DEAL!!!
