Beauty from ashes on the McKenzie River

As Oregon’s premier audio tour company we are very familiar with the Mckenzie River area. We spend many happy days there. And nothing shows our affinity with the region more, then to highlight it as the focus of our first ever audio tour, the McKenzie River & Central Cascades tour.

Released way back in 2019, we celebrated the launch with a demonstration on a party bus down the scenic byway listening to the stories of the McKenzie River with 35 of our first supporters, stopping at Ike’s Pizza, the McKenzie General Store & Obsidian Grill, and Belknap Hot Springs. It was a magical day. We were dreaming of tours all around Oregon as we began this new adventure together.
