We decided on a private tour of the Mt, Hood and Columbia River Loop so we could work the day to fit our needs as they were many, being we were five women. Our tour guide Shaun is the best there is. He is a lovely man with great knowledge and patience and a special knack for listening to his clients and making our wishes come to fruition. We spent as much time as we liked at some places and breezed through others ( we were not very interested in shopping anywhere ). He was so helpful and caring with our mother, who is almost 80 and moved a bit slower, especially around the waterfalls. He heard us when we talked about things we wanted to eat and boom, we were eating just that. We ended up booking the Oregon Coast Tour the very next day with Shaun again and the royal treatment continued. We wanted crabs slapped on the table and we got crabs, oysters, clams on the water, he even cleaned them! We spoke so often about the beautiful Oregon flowers and gardens and next thing we know, we're in his grandmother's amazing garden by the ocean. Everyone in my group loves sweets and loved the ice cream but I mentioned how I loved salty snacks like beef jerky and yup, homemade beef jerky shop! I could go on and on, there were several more surprises from this wonderful, thoughtful guide but I don't want to spoil it for those of you who are fortunate enough to enjoy touring with Shaun. As stated before, we did choose the private tour on both days but it was worth every penny!
