Native Story Tours are Unique

  • Genuinely Native. Thomas Doty's tours are the real deal! He takes you to native places he frequently visits and keeps watch over. Both the places and the stories have been passed to him by his native ancestors, and elders in the Indian community.
  • Small Groups. Each tour is limited to a small group in a single vehicle. Not only does this minimize impact on sensitive native sites, it also ensures a personal, vibrant and meaningful experience for everyone. Thomas Doty emphasizes respect for Old time cultural homelands, and a light footfall. No pets, please. They are not allowed on trails or in caves within national monuments and parks.

Tours Leave from Ashland, Oregon

For all tours, bring water, snacks, sunscreen, and sturdy walking shoes. For the Klamath River Canyon tour, long trousers are advised.
