There was a half day city tour combined with the Columbia Gorge trip for the other half. Steve, our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. He drove a lot and did it safely. The pace was leisurely and ample time was given to the stops including rest stops. We got to know Portland on this tour given our one-day visit to this city. Would recommend this trip since you get picked up and dropped off at your hotel.
Our tour group was quite small and I was so lucky to be part of it. Jamie, our tour guide was great and informative. She made sure that we were able to see all the glory of Columbia River Gorge, the Falls, and Mt Hood. 11/08/16 was such a perfect day; for a fall day, it was quite sunny. Recommended!
An excellent way to spend a day in Portland. Our tour guide, Steve, did a great job in showing us the waterfalls and sites in the Columbia Gorge in the morning. Then it was on to places in downtown Portland after lunch in the afternoon. Highly recommend this tour as a way to see a lot of different areas in this fabulous city.
Didn't use the hop on hop off... the Columbia river Gorge Tour was Fantastic. Highly recommend it. We had a great driver - May, she was excellent - entertaining and also full of local information.
This trip was amazing. We started in the city of Portland, viewing major sites and stopping for lunch at the food truck area. After lunch we went to the Columbia River Gorge, which was amazing. The trip is informative and helped us get a better idea of the city. It is well worth the cost.
Good way to see Portland. Columbia River Gorge trip especially beautiful the dam and hatchery are beautiful!
The trip to the Columbia gorge was fantastic. Our tour guide Steve was very knowledgeable. Michelle with the Tour Hub was great we missed the morning part of the tour due to weather from our initial destination but when I called them they did everything they can so we can at least get the afternoon portion . Thank you guys you have made our weekend. The tour was great did not have to worry about parking and the long line of traffic in the falls. We just had to enjoy the beauty that is Portland!!!
Fabulous from start to finish. Seamus went the extra mile literally again and again. His enthusiasm for Portland, its people, and the Columbia River Gorge were infectious as his laugh. We never could have replicated the sights and knowledge and driving that he performed. A sweet and memorable and carefree day it was.
Despite many obstacles and we had a fantastic day with Shamus our guide. We visited all the sites listed, plus he took us to a stop our group requested. He also gave us wonderful lunch restaurant suggestions. Definitely do your visit to the Columbia River Gorge with this tour package.
Our tour guide, Jamie, was totally awesome!!! She was so knowledgeable about Portland and its history. She gave lots if recommendations for restaurants and activities while in Portland. We took the full-day tour including the Columbia Gorge Waterfalls, Totally recommend it. Great day!!!
What an amazing guide, tour and sit and #39;s that we and #39;ve seen in 8.5 hrs. Highly recommend to anyone who has less than 48 hrs in Portland to capture most important sites and nature (Columbia river, waterfalls, some light hiking with bonus waterfalls). Just very happy and satisfied!
Magnificent views of the Columbia River gorge, waterfalls, Mt Hood, fruit orchards, and Timberline Lodge. Well worth the time and money. Our driver Steve did a great job with knowledgeable commentary.
We took the Columbia River Gorge and Waterfall tour back in Feburary, and it was just what we were looking for. Matt the guide, a local Portlandian, was extremely knowledgeable and fun. The luxury bus we road in was comfortable and relaxing, and it was even loaded with water and snacks. All the sights were absolutely gorgeous. The tour picked us up and dropped us off at our hotel, so we never had to worry about directions or parking! It's much more relaxing than trying to rent a car yourself!
Honestly the tour was a perfect combination of information and relaxation. Looking forward to traveling back to Portland when the coastal tours are up and running later in the year!
Great tour guide and fun city tour. You get to see so much and learn a lot about this great city in just one day! Colombia River Gorge views were beautiful!
This tour is a must do, especially if you are a first time visitor to Portland! First, it's great that it includes hotel pickup and drop off. Our tour guide, Ron, was absolutely terrific. He gave us such a great overview of the city and we enjoyed his commentary on sights and attractions while he drove us around. The Lan Su Chinese Garden was beautiful and we loved the peace and calm of the place. The Pittock Mansion was also very nice and interesting. We had lunch in the Nob Hill District which we loved for its scenery and residential feel. The highlight of the tour for us was the Columbia Gorge area. The six waterfalls that we visited were breathtakingly gorgeous and spectacular. We had time for several photo opportunities, creating lovely memories for us. We highly recommend this tour, and the price is well worth it!
Truly an awesome waterfalls tour of the Columbia River Gorge! I was nervous about booking but am so glad I did. Our tour guide, Bryan, had a great personality! The bus was brand new and amazing. There was snacks and drinks and the tour was incredible. There was plenty of time at each waterfall. BOOK THIS TRIP!!!
Fantastic tour with Skyler, from the local tour operator. Picked us up at our hotel, right on time, transported us in a beautiful brand new van, through the Columbia River Gorge Falls. Skyler is an Extremely knowledgeable, magnificant scenery and beautiful falls. If your in Portland do not miss this adventure with this 1st class tour company!!
Absolutely enjoyed the tour with our guide Matt. He is a Portland native and had a wealth of knowledge. My boyfriend and I got to enjoy all the stops without having to worry about parking or directions, which was the main reason why we decided to book a tour. I'm so glad to have booked the Columbia River Gorge Waterfall Tour, which picked us up and dropped us off at our hotel--Matt even provided water, drinks, and snacks! Definitely would recommend this tour, and I even hope to book the Oregon Coastal Tour with the same company when I visit during a warmer season.
This was a wonderful tour. I highly recommend it. Without a car in Portland and not wanting to rent one, it's a very convenient way to get out of the city and see the Columbia River Gorge. The waterfalls are breathtaking, and definitely worth the trip even in the rainy winter. Brian, our guide, was very knowledgeable and easy to talk to.
I had the best time! My tour guide was so sweet, and very friendly. She picked me up at my downtown hotel, and I joined a small group of 4. The 5 of us were under 40 years old, so I thought her information about all the places we visited was very fun, and age appropriate. We visited the Columbia River waterfalls, and were driven through downtown Portland.
We were driven to the River, and got to stop at the Women's Forum, and Vista Point for some beautiful views. We went to see about 12 waterfalls since the weather was so clear. It was beautiful, and out guide knew so much history about each waterfall. It was very lengthy and informative. After the first half of the tour we made a stop for lunch at Portland's Food Stall Pod and had free time to eat. The second half of the tour was a city tour, and we were driven through Downtown Portland and got to see all the neighborhoods. Nob Hill, Brewery Blocks, Old Chinatown, Pearl District, Pioneer Place, basically every neighborhood downtown. The Chinese Gardens were closed, as well as Pittock Mansion, and the Test Rose Garden, but we still got to stop at each one anyway. These locations were closed due to renovations and the timing of the year not the tour company's fault so I thought it was nice that she drove us to those locations anyway. We got a chance to get out and walk around the Rose Gardens and Pittock mansion, so it was nice to see. She drove us to so many places and knew so much about the city.
Overall I thought it was a nice tour, I got a chance to get a glimpse of Portland, and view some beautiful scenery. I got lucky with my guide, and my group- all so nice! I would recommend this tour if you want to see Portland in a short amount of time. I planned to use the tour as an idea, and return to the places I was interested in the following day. It was very helpful. All in all, I had a great time, and made some friends along the way.
The tour to Columbia Gorge was wonderful and tour guide outstanding! Area around Portland nit as great but still good.
A really fantastic day, so much packed in between the Colombia Gorge and the City, and our guide Ron Davies was so enthusiastic and knowledgable. Highly recommended for those visiting Portland!
Our tour guide Jamie was great. There were only four of us, so getting around was easy. She took us to beautiful sights along the Columbia River and then to the highlights of Portland. Her running commentary made the tour very enjoyable.
This tour was one of the highlights of our vacation in Portland! Our guide on the Columbia River Gorge tour was extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and kept all of us engaged throughout the excursion. The sights were spectacular - I would highly recommend this tour to anyone!
Fantastic tour. Our bus driver/tour guide was very very knowledgable and friendly. We loved the columbia river gorge and visiting three waterfalls. Bus was comfortable and air conditioned.
Would highly recommend!
