      Overall the trip was fun. The bus is nice, however, the aisle ways are so narrow it was almost impossible for a couple of the riders to comfortably get to the back seats. That was uncomfortable and I'm sure a little embarrassing. Not everyone is barbie doll size and shape. I think we could have spent more time at Spaghetti Factory, however, putting a group of seniors on the 2nd floor with no readily available elevator was not very good planning on their part. The Portland Spirit is alway fun, but the dinner was really not that good. I had the chicken, it was cold. I admit to being a picky eater but the salad and vegetables didn't even look good. The ride was enjoyable and the fireworks were great. When we got off the boat the ramp was difficult for many. Again, no elevator for folks with mobility issues is not very good. Then we had to walk five minutes to get to the bus which was a little bit more than some of the group could do comfortably. Our guide , Ed, was very nice and full of fun trivia facts which I enjoy. I want to stress that we were never in danger during our ride, however, he did run a red light and made a left hand turn from a forward only lane.

      The Lighthouse Tour was FANTASTIC. I have wanted to see the lighthouses for years. Our trip started on the Portland Spirit traveling up the Willamette River and connecting to the Columbia into Astoria. Astoria, in itself, is a true treasure with homes dating back to the 1800. Our group caught a travel bus that started us on a jjourneyup the Oregon coast. We saw had the pleasure of visiting the following iconic light houses: Cape Meares, Yaquina Head, Heceta Head, Umpqua River, Cape Blanco, and Coquille light house Several of the light houses are closed due to stairway repairs. As a side trip while in Depot Bay, our tour guide booked us a whale watching trip, We did see any whales, but we had a whale of a great time. I've always watched the boats go out on adventures, but this time. I saw the scenery on the other side. Highlights: Getting to hear the buoy up close and a great crew As a perk I met a new friend, Donna. Oregon West Excursions provides you many unique opportunities. I hope you travel with us (them) sometime. You won't regret it. Becki Goslow

      We can't say enough about the great work of the tour director, Chris, or our bus driver Kevin, two very competent and congenial fellows. We were disappointed with the lodging in Port Angeles and the last breakfast, a "do it yourself" nook in the hotel lobby. Otherwise, five staers!

      For my first tour ever, I had a great time. We saw a lot of sights in a short time. Met new friends and ate a lot of shrimp!!
