The Mostly True Vashon Tours now offers the “Touchless Tours”

The tour begins in an outside area where there is plenty of room for social distancing. I will give a short talk to set up the tour and give some general history of the Puget Sound. Then we will get back in our cars and head out.

According to the Washington State Patrol it is OK to perform hands-free driving or maybe its driving with hands-free devices. Probably the second. Anyway, we put our phones on speaker and I will drive ahead of you pointing out roadside attractions along the way and answer any questions. Easy peasy.

Payment can be by credit card over the phone or by PayPal. That way no money or credit cards need to be handled.

If you like, I can arrange for some take-out food arrive at the end of the tour for a picnic.

And if this is still too much interaction then try the “Hooky Tour”. Simply pay for the tour and then play hooky. I will promise to cover for you and tell everyone that you were on the tour and were a very nice person. A large tip is expected because I’m kinda sticking my neck out.

Now back to the regularly scheduled web page.

Mostly True Vashon Tours…what the???

Yes “Mostly True Vashon Tours” is an unusual name but it comes by it honestly.  All my life I have had a passion for humor and history and a  few years ago this resulted in a couple of small books titled “The Mostly True History of Vashon and Maury Islands”.

The idea was to retell stories of the island in a lighthearted, easy to read manner. However I was not above sneaking in a completely fabricated article. The reader would be in on the joke by the end but I had fun writing on the edge of plausibility!

Lately people have asked me what’s there to do on Vahson Island and so the “Mostly True Vashon Tours” was born. The idea is for tourists, visitors and locals alike to tour Vashon and Maury island’s many historical places while stopping to see what the island has to offer including the various fermenters (wineries, cideries and brewery) as well as cheese makers, coffee roasters, farm stands, art galleries, shops and restaurants.
