What You Can Expect
Enjoy tea, pastries and seasonal snacks while taking in scenic views of the city and the surrounding volcanic peaks at historic Pittock Mansion. This mansion was home to influential Portland pioneers Henry and Georgiana Pittock from 1914 to 1919, and is now a city park and treasured landmark.
Next, explore the neighborhoods of Portland’s four main quadrants: Northeast, Northwest, Southeast and Southwest. Each quadrant has its own distinct feel and unique attractions including art galleries, boutiques, cafes, restaurants and performance venues.
Visit the Pearl Disctrict, Nob Hill and Hawthorne, and hear about the history of Portland’s ten well-known bridges from your guide.
You’ll also explore at least two of the following parks: Washington Park, Mt Tabor Park, McCall Waterfront Park and, depending on the season, the International Rose Test Garden. Your guide will bring the parks alive by identifying the flora and fauna.
End your tour at one of Portland’s greatest treasures, Powell’s Books, one of the largest independent bookstores in the world!
There were 7 other people on our tour but there were no space issues at all. The van was clean, modern and comfortable. Our guide was excellent. Unfortunately, I can't remember his name but he said that he was a manager at the company and he really knew his stuff. Being born and raised in Portland, he was very knowledgable about the neighborhoods and history of the area. It was evident that he loves Portland which definitely makes it a great job for him. The weather was beautiful and we had a few minutes to walk through the Rose Garden at Washington Park. We we came back to the van, there were pastries and Jasmine tea waiting for us. I would highly recommend this tour before driving around Portland on your own. We did and we were able to return to the points of interest that we had seen and heard about on the tour afterward. Would definitely this tour even to portland residents!
We were the only ones on the tour so of course we had a very private one. We were pleased with our driver/narrator Jeff and had a great time during the tour all over Portland. We would recommend it to others if we knew someone was going to Portland. Thanks for the opportunity. Good job, Jeff.
