  • “I had family come in town so we thought about a tour.
    We chose LaZoom City Comedy Tour. We all thought it was fabulous.
    Even though we live in we are from Asheville we learned a few things.
    Never a boring moment.
    Thanks for the good time.”

  • “The Historic Comedy tour was excellent.
    Cookie kept us laughing while at the same time educating us about Asheville.
    The Tour was informative and very, very, funny. Cookie was great.
    She kept us on our toes while enjoying the sites of Asheville.
    The other characters that made appearances on the bus, were equally as entertaining.
    I would highly recommend this tour!”

    Barbara N
  • “Comedy tour not to miss…
    My husband and I recently visited Asheville (mainly for hiking and beer).
    An uber driver recommended the lazoom comedy tour.
    It is definitely worth it!
    Not only do guests get a tour of Asheville but a show with it and beer encouraged on the bus!”
