The Fine Print
We have a ticketless system, this email serves as your ticket and can be presented at boarding via paper copy or phone. Seating is first come, first served. If passengers are late to boarding, their tickets may be released and sold to another party at time of departure. If passengers are intoxicated at boarding, they will not be allowed to board and a refund will not be given.
We do not have passenger parking at LaZoom Room and therefore recommend arriving downtown 30 minutes before your scheduled tour time to find parking. Additionally, Uber or Lyft is always a great option to avoid having to find parking.
Paid Parking Options:
The paid lot surrounding LaZoom Room (we do not manage this lot), street meters, the Aloft Hotel or the garage up one block on Biltmore Ave.
What to Bring:
You’re welcome to bring snacks or beverages on the bus. Beer and wine are allowed on board, but not liquor. The LaZoom Room has a great selection of beer, wine, snacks and non-alcoholic beverages for purchase to enjoy there or take on the bus.
Passengers over 21 need ID if they intend to drink alcoholic beverages on the bus. If you’re booking a “Local” ticket, you will be expected to provide an Asheville ID or proof of Asheville residency at boarding.
Parties of 4 and fewer must cancel at least 24 hours prior to the tour to receive a full refund. Parties of 5 or more must cancel at least 4 days prior to the tour to receive a full refund. We do not offer refunds for reservations cancelled the day of the tour.
In the rare event that we have fewer than 9 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 have provided us with a good telephone number to reach you on the day of your tour
