The Tour of Astoria
The tour of Astoria is a short version of the selfie tour. It is designed for the visitors off the cruise ships, but anyone can go. We meet near the trolley where our cruise visitors can choose if they would like to walk to town, take the trolley or hop on the bus for a 2-3 hour tour for $20.00.
We only can hold 14 people 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 plan fly!
We then hop back on the bus and show you our beautiful view and 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, jail and walk the beautiful grounds of the Flavel home.
When we all get back on the bus, we will drive through town showing some of our amazing buildings and heritage.
Our next stop is Pier 39 where we walk over the bridge greeted by Sea lions. 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 them through history. We also show the 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 of a few more stops such as:
Columbia River Maritime Museum, places for more selfie pics or to stop at Josephson’s Smoke House where the owner greets the guest with a hand shake and the best clam chowder. From there you can see the other cruisers walking toward the boat, so we get back on the bus the last time where we answer all questions and post them on our web and facebook as a blog, “Curiosity of a Traveler”.
