Tour guide was knowledgeable but the tour was not what we expected. We were supposed to have 3 hours in Cannon Beach on our own to eat lunch, look around, etc. The tour group was only myself, my sister, another person and the tour guide. The guide changed everything up. We had half hour to look around and by then a lot of shops were closed. We felt like we had no choice except to eat lunch with her and the other person in the group. If the tour was listed as lunch with group, no problem but it was not. My sister lives several thousand miles from me and we were looking forward to wandering around on our own for that time. We did enjoy the beach and the views- it just was not what we expected.Also, the tour guide was wearing open toed shoes and a skirt and did not bring a jacket so she was cold and kept on turning up the heat in the van.
