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.
Portland itself is pretty nice to explore. My guide is Ron. He is informative and so nice. We learned and knew a lot of history from him. We stopped by many waterfalls and enjoyed downtown area. I would recommend the tour. And if I have a chance, I will visit Portland again for Mt.Hood. Thank you for giving me a great time in Portland.
Great sights, excellent guide (thanks Steve), plentiful day; strongly recommend!
