What You Can Expect
Learn about the final resting places of many prominent Oregon citizens, including governors and United States senators. Pass Portland’s famous food carts, which sell a diverse range of cuisine, from Vietnamese to Greek to Polish.
Catch amazing mountain views from beautiful Washington Park. Stop to walk through Pittock Mansion, a French Renaissance château listed on the National Registry of Historic Places, and then continue to the Portland International Rose Gardens, where you can discover 550 varieties of roses on a leisurely stroll.
Explore Portland's vibrant, eclectic neighborhoods such as Nob Hill, the Pearl District, North Mississippi, Alberta, North Portland, Vista Hills and Council Crest.
Break for lunch (own expense) for an hour in Portland's famous food truck area before continuing to Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area, where views of stunning waterfalls await you.
Your guide will explain how these waterfalls formed: the great flood of Lake Missoula propelled miles and miles of water, ice, rock and mud across eastern Washington, cutting through the Columbia River Gorge and covering the Willamette Valley. You’ll see remnants of these geological forces as you explore the area and get up close to sites such as Bridal Veil Falls, Horse Tail Falls and Bonneville Dam. You can also walk up to the bridge that stands beneath Multnomah Falls.
Your next stop is Crown Point Vista House, a marble-interior home built in 1916 and known for its scenic lookout points along the Historic Columbia River Highway. After your time here, you’ll return to Portland.
Fantastic trip! Our guide, Tom was awesome. Gave us great recommendations, was very informative and we enjoyed the day with him. He went out of his way to make sure we saw all that we wanted to. Thank you!
Tour overall was very well done. We were exhausted from touring/seeing so much. Staff was extremely helpful getting us picked up and getting us through all the traffic and some construction. We went to so many places like the Chinese Garden that we would have skipped but it was so worth while. We had 6 on our bus and they catered to special drop off schedules to the train depot. They hit all of the main sites and then some. Would do it again for sure.
Sergio was the best guide! As a local Vietnam vet, he knows the places to explore, the story behind the story. he made the trip!
This was a lovely tour! We had time to walk around at the different waterfalls, the gorge was nice, and the opportunities to visit the rose garden, Chinese garden, and the Pittock mansion were all great opportunities. If you stop at the food carts for lunch, I would recommend making the quick walk over to Blue Star Donuts. Well worth it! There is a lot packed into the day, so if you want to spend more time at the different areas, you may wish to consider a different tour. However, for an orientation to Portland and some of the surrounding area, this would be hard to beat!
We really enjoyed this tour and our amazing tour guide named Keri. She knew a lot about Portland and we saw so much in one day.
My 20 year old daughter and I took this tour and had a wonderful time. We thought it was an excellent value because of all of the destinations that we visited. And the tour guide did a wonderful job.
Best guide ever and we got everything that we wanted and more. Highly recommend
