I really enjoyed this excursion into Columbia Gorge to view the NW wilderness. Our guide was on time for my pickup and knowledgeable about what we were seeing. The visit included excellent views of Mt. Hood and even St. Helen. Portland is a lovely city and I enjoyed my short time there.
Booked day tour via viator site for 15th June 2019 and the pickup was scheduled between 8.45 - 9.00am. The tour guide came 15mins early and I started early for the trip. Couple of pickups we had on the way and started with our city tour. After city tour we stopped for lunch and then continued our tour for different waterfalls. Our tour guide Crystal was extremely helpful and knowledgeable.
This was to be an all day tour..... I was put with a morning tour and then a new afternoon tour. Totally different people in each group. I was dropped off for a 2.5 hour lunch in an area with very little to do. I ended up walking back to my hotel and then back to my pick up point...very frustrating! The two separate tours were good, guide was good.... but it should NOT be billed as an all day tour with a lunch stop. If I had been told there would be a 2.5 hour break I would have asked to be drop back off and picked up at my hotel; which was an area with much more to do and see. The beak was to be 2 hrs but the guides pick up took longer than expected so it was 2.5 hrs. Unfair to me apps well as the guide, who knew I was no very pleased.
Crystal was an excellent tour guide. I would recommend her to anyone taking the tour. She is very knowledgeable of the history of Portland. The tour was worth the money. We took wonderful pictures at the different waterfalls.
Request to have Dylan be your tour guide! He is a wealth of knowledge and is funny! He’s super patient and gives you an appreciation of Portland. This whole day tour will take you to all places you hadn’t even thought of visiting or even knew existed in Portland. Thank you Dylan for a memorable trip! I highly recommend you do this the first days you’re in Portland! You won’t regret it!
We were given a historical review of the Portland area, and saw many of the "landmarks". Our guide was very friendly, efficient and knowledgeable. She helped us plan our stay in downtown Portland after the tour. The afternoon portion, to the Gorge, was beautiful! This trip is definitely worthwhile.
