Your 3.5-hour sightseeing tour begins with morning hotel pickup and a tasty selection of tea, pastries and seasonal snacks. Settle in as your luxury van winds through Portland’s west side en route to the first stop, the grounds of the historic Pittock Mansion. Marking the end of the extensive Wildwood Trail in Forest Park, this mansion was once home to Portland pioneer and newspaper tycoon Henry Pittock and his wife, Georgiana. Take advantage of one of the best views of Portland from the lofty grounds.
Next, descend from the hills for a full tour of Portland’s four main quadrants: Northeast, Northwest, Southeast and Southwest. Divided by the arterial Burnside Street and the Willamette River, each gridded quarter is anything but conventional. Experience the distinct feel of each area — from the Pearl District and Nob Hill to Hawthorne and Alberta — and discover the many art galleries, cafes, wine bars, boutiques and restaurants.
No trip to Portland is complete without a park tour. Accompany your naturalist guide to at least two of Portland’s gorgeous green spaces for a lesson in local flora and fauna. Possible stops include Washington Park, Mt Tabor Park, Laurelhurst Park and, depending on the season, the International Rose Test Garden.
