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.
This tour was terrific .Van was top notch Ron was terrific Great 8 hours !
I would highly recommend this tour. I travelled to Portland on business but took a day out to see some of the city and this tour gave me all the information and sights I wanted to know. The trip was split into two halves almost, with the morning speaking in the Columbia River Gorge visiting the breaktaking waterfalls and scenic views and the afternoon visiting the city itself. Carrie our tour guide was very enthusiastic and helpful, she make the day much more enjoyable. Overall the tour captured all the highlights the city has to offer and I found myself passing on the interesting facts I learnt, to my colleagues during the week following. This tour is highly recommended and definitely worth the money. Thank you very much. Sarah from United Kingdom.
Our tour guide Keri made this a most enjoyable tour. The waterfalls were fantastic! Also enjoyed the International Rose Garden and the Lan Su Chinese Garden.
I had a wonderful time. The guide was very knowledgeable and very enthusiastic which made for a very pleasant experience.
This was a great tour! Our guide jamie was very knowledgeabe and made the tour fun. The tour itself was comprehensive. I would not hesitate to recommend this tour.
We enjoyed sitting back and let someone else show us the sites. We were able to walk through the city the next day after seeing some of the places we would like to return to. We would have visited the gardens and the Chinese gardens on our own but they were included in our tour. The trip to the Gorge was wonderful. Our guide was knowledgeable and told anecdotes about Portland.
The tour was wonderful. The guide, Clem, was really great. Everything was handled very efficiently. Really glad we took this tour!
Everything about this tour was excellent. I highly recommend it.
Steve, our local guide, did an excellent job! He was informative, entertaining, and professional! I would recommend this tour to anyone wanting to get a good overview of Portland and the Columbia Gorge area. He was an expert at both areas having lived in the area all his life.
The tour and tour guide were fantastic...I learned so much about Portland history and although we visited many places, the tour never felt rushed. I couldn't be more pleased with the experience!
