This was a fun tour and our guide, Gunnar, was very knowledgeable about the city of Portland. Actually, I was the only person in the first half of the tour which took us through some of the quirky neighborhoods around Portland. We visited the Rose Garden and the Pittock Mansion which is perched on the bluffs of West Hills overlooking Portland. The weather was perfect that day and there were clear views of Mt. Hood and Mt. St. Helens. After taking a lunch break, the second half of the tour picks up a group of two as we head out towards the Columbia Gorge. We make a stop at a sturgeon fish hatchery before visiting some of the many waterfalls the Gorge has to offer including the famous Multnomah Falls. Gunnar made sure we were able to spend quality time up close to some of the larger waterfalls. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone visiting Portland.
Hotel pickup was spot on. The tour group was small and our guide, Michelle, was very accommodating and knowledgeable about the history and landscape of Oregon. The visit to Cannon Beach was perfect. We were able to spend time walking along the beach and view the Haystack rocks. Michelle took us up to Ecola State Park to get some nice views of Cannon Beach from afar at higher elevation. We also visited the Columbia Maritime Museum in Astoria to learn about the rich history of the Columbia River and its importance to the region. This tour will provide some of most beautiful views of the Pacific NW coast and I would recommend to anyone who has full day to explore outside Portland.
San Francisco, California
Wonderful day spent in the park. Weather behaved well, not crowded, and views were perfect. Would definitely recommend this tour if visiting San Francisco, CA or surrounding area.
