Peter, our guide, was brilliant. He presented information about the geography, history, flora and fauna of the Columbia river Gorge in an interesting way, and was also informative about Portland itself whilst on the minibus driving through the city towards the Gorge.
Such a beautiful reflection of God’s work! The falls are breathtaking, the trees are lush and vibrant, and the river is. This is truly nature at it’s best! Tour guide was conversant and knowledgeable. The hikes were fun. We were moved from the PM tour to the AM tour, and I am glad of the switch. Less crowd and traffic in the morning. I definitely recommend this tour!
This tour was an excellent way to spend our afternoon. Peter is an incredibly knowledgeable tour guide, and we learned a lot about Oregon history, geology, and culture along the way. We especially enjoyed seeing Latourell falls and the amazing view of the Columbia River Gorge from Crown Point vista. I would highly recommend this experience.
We traveled to Portland for a family trip - it was all adults. Our guide, Peter, was so wonderful from the moment he picked us up! He was super knowledgable about the area and did a great job giving us a background about all the waterfalls/places we visited along the way. I also have to add that my mom is hard of hearing, but she had no problem hearing Peter's booming voice (he'd be a great radio announcer!). Peter also accommodated an extra stop that we wanted to make on our way home. We had a great day touring the Columbia River Gorge & Oregon's beautiful waterfalls, and I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who is visiting the area!
My sister and I are so glad that we did the tour as opposed to renting a car for we have would have missed a lot of the amazing waterfalls history, and details that Pete gave us for our day of Wonder. He was absolutely amazing and this is a must see!!
Peter was an excellent guide to the Columbia River Gorge area and waterfalls, and gave good tips on restaurants back in Portland. He picks you up at your hotel and drops you off there at the end of tour. This is an easy tour, nothing very strenuous, about 4 or 5 hours total duration including travel time to and from Portland.
Wonderful experience. Pete, our guide, was fantastic in every way. Very personable, knowledgeable and passionate about the Oregon scenery. Since the waterfall areas are so crowded in the summer, you really need a guide to navigate the parking and traffic situations to be able to see the falls - and Pete was ideal for that. Highly recommend!
My travel partner and I thoroughly enjoyed our Columbia gorge and waterfalls tour with Pete. He was very friendly and knowledgeable, which made for an excellent tour. Pete's tour was certainly a highlight of our time in Portland!
