Tour of Astoria
We are door to door service anywhere in Astoria city limits. Cruise line people we meet off the Port near the Trolley station. Just follow the signs. We can hold 14 people in the bus and if the party is less then 3 we will drive the RAV4. We go to the Astoria Column where we stay there for approx. 20 minutes. If you commit to climbing the 164 stairs, we give you a plane to write your name and location on. When you get to the top you can watch your plane fly! We then hop back on the bus and show you our beautiful view and 1890's Queen Anne Victorian Historic homes. Our next stop is the Flavel house and Film Museum, we stay approx. for 20 minutes, just enough time to view the Goonies Jeep, the historic jail, walk the beautiful grounds of the Flavel home and visit the gift shops. When we all get back on the bus, we will drive through town showing some of our amazing buildings and heritage. We will also point out some places such as the Goonies house, Kindergarten Cop grade school. Our next stop is Pier 39 where we walk over the bridge greeted by Sea lions on a dock out in the water. This is a ½ hour stop, just enough time for everyone to choose a fresh cool beer, or have the tastiest coffee and homemade pastries, or to buy a heart lock and sign it and add it to the locks of love collection. We also walk through the Bumble Bee Tuna Museum, guiding our guest through history. On the Pier they have a fantastic vending machine where you can buy an Astoria post card and stamp and so many more random things. When we get back on the bus, we ask the group how they feel on time. If we have time, we have the group choose a few more stops. From there we take you back on the bus for the last time where we answer all questions and post them on our web and Facebook as a blog, “Curiosity of a Traveler”.
