FAQs

  • You can purchase tickets for our tours 3 ways: online, over the telephone, in person at our office at 14 Battery Park Avenue or at the LaZoom Room at 76 Biltmore Ave. Buying tickets in advance is the only way to guarantee seating. Reservations are strongly suggested, as most tours do sell out. Tickets can be purchased at the time of boarding if seating is available.

  • You do not! We always recommend reading over your email confirmation so you know where and when your tour departs, as well all the other important can and cannot’s of the LaZoom bus, however we use a roster at the bus so all we need is your name and you can jump right on!

  • All tours depart from the LaZoom Room at 76 Biltmore Ave., Asheville, NC 28801. Come and wet your whistle before your tour at the LaZoom Room bar or relax on one of our comfy gold velveteen couches after you return your tour!

  • LaZoom does not have designated parking. Although we don’t own the parking lot for LaZoom Room, you can pay $2 per hour to park there. The Biltmore Avenue parking garage, located in the bottom of the Aloft Hotel, is located about a quarter of a block away from LaZoom Room at 51 Biltmore Avenue and costs $1 per hour.

  • Our City Tour has a bit of PG-13 humor, so we have limited it to ages 13 and up. Our Haunted Tour is appropriate for individuals 17 years and up. Only individuals 21+ are allowed on our Band & Beer Bus Tour.

  • Cancellation policy: Parties of 5 and more must cancel at least 4 days prior to the scheduled bus tour to receive a full refund. Parties of 4 and fewer must cancel at least 24 hours prior to scheduled tour to receive a full refund.  No refunds on reservations canceled within 24 hour of tour time. Deposits paid on private rentals are non-refundable. Call (828) 225-6932.

    In the rare event that we have fewer than 10 passengers registered for a tour, we may have to cancel it. We do our best to make this decision at least 2 hours before departure time. All passengers will be notified of any cancellations via text, email, and telephone. For this reason, please make sure that you provide us with a good telephone number to reach you on the day of your tour.

  • It really depends on the month, day of the week, and time you’re wanting to ride.  If you have a larger party, booking a few weeks ahead is a great idea, if possible. However, sometimes tours roll with seats available, so last minute bookings often work too, specifically on week days.

  • Unfortunately not. The doors are not wide enough on this bus to accommodate a wheelchair. However, we will do our best to accommodate disabled passengers and can store wheelchairs if necessary.

  • Yes, but beer and wine only! Passengers will be asked to provide ID proving that they are 21 years of age. Alcoholic beverages other than beer and wine are not permitted. You can purchase these items at our departing locations, the French Broad Food Coop and Thirsty Monk Pub.

    Large coolers are not permitted on board; any coolers must be able to fit in your seat with you.

  • Yes, gratuities are greatly appreciated by our bus drivers and performers. Believe us, you’ll want to after you see their show!

  • Yes, we do offer discounts for groups of 10 or more individuals. It brings the rate from $26 to $24 per person for the City Tour and $23 to $22 per person for the Haunted Tour. The website will automatically calculate the discount when you purchase 10 or more tickets.

    IMPORTANT NOTICE TO GROUPS:  We ask that groups inform all their members to respect our rules about talking during the tours. If you have a group of more than 20, we recommend speaking with us about one of our private tour options. We are sorry to report we no longer allow Bachelor and Bachelorette parties on our City and Haunted tours, however the Band and Beer Tour is a great, fun option for them!

  • Dress for success with the weather; LaZoom is an open-air tour bus when the weather is 60 degrees or above. Windows will be closed if it is cold or rainy. Dress in whatever manner you wish on the bus, and during your entire vacation in Asheville!

  • The bus is typically open-air. That means no A/C in the summer, but there is a nice breeze once the tour starts moving. In inclement or cold weather, the bus does have windows we will close. The bus is heated during colder months, but we always recommend dressing for the weather.

  • Our City Tour stops for a 10 minute break in the middle so passengers can use the restroom or grab a drink before hopping back on the bus. The Haunted Tour is an hour long tour without a stop. We highly recommend using the restroom before you leave!

    Our Band & Beer Bus Tour will visit Highland Brewery (12 Old Charlotte Highway), and the Wedge at Foundation (5 Foundry Street) in the River Arts District, giving you two opportunities to use the restroom and stretch your legs (and grab a beer!).

  • We do!

    • Seniors 65+: $2 off City and Band & Beer Tours, $1 off Haunted Tours (See Senior ticket type option at checkout)
    • Locals, anyone with an Asheville I.D.:$2 off City and Band & Beer Tours, $1 off Haunted Tours (See Local ticket type option at checkout)

  • Our seating is on a first come, first served basis. Never fear: every seat has a nice view!

  • LaZoom can only accept service dogs as passengers. Tours are loud, spontaneous, at times unscripted and in your face. Dog’s don’t tend to love it for all of those reasons. If you will be bringing your service dog, please call the office to make your reservation so we can make a note about your helpful pooch coming aboard!
  • Nothing could possibly be more fun than a LaZoom Tour, but if you have extra time, you may want to visit some of our local friends.

  • From experience, we’ve found that our comedy tours and these groups are often not a good match.  However, these groups LOVE the Band and Beer tour! The difference between the two experiences is that during our comedy tours, the crowd has to be quiet so the audience can hear the tour guide. During the Band & Beer Tours, the crowd is encouraged to be boisterous and a part of the experience!
