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.
The tour guide was excellent. He was very patient and accommodating. The tour of the Columbia Gorge Waterfalls was excellent! I will definitely recommend it.
As we had never been to Portland this tour was a must. However it would be better to do it in 2 parts. The city tour would be very helpful on arrival to give you the layout of the city. Columbia Gorge could be done on another day. Jet lag and time limitations suggested we do both together. Both are informative, not only covering places to visit but the history involved is fascinating. Our guide was friendly, knowledgeable and thoroughly professional. Recommended.
