This was an amazing tour and our tour guide was wonderful. She was extremely knowledgeable and gave us a history of the area. It was extra beautiful as it had been snowing so we were glad they didn’t cancel our tour. The only reason I didn’t give 5 start is that while I appreciated them providing snacks I was a little uneasy when everyone took their masks off in our confined van and started eating during a Covid surge. I’d preferred if they made us wait until we got outside to eat the snacks.
Beautiful and educational!

Edwin was fun and very knowledgeable of the surrounding area we would highly recommended. The falls were a site to see.
Perfect weather
Corinne_W, Oct 2021
It was a really great time hiking and a perfect day out. I wasn't expecting all the climbing but it wasn't too bad. Sarah was a great guide and we got to all the falls right before all the crowds hit; she timed it perfectly.

Shelley_S, Oct 2021
Lovely views of waterfalls and valleys! Great information and stories provided as well! The whole family (Tour Guides) is fantastic! Everett mentioned TripAdvisor, so I left a review for him there too. But he guided the Forest Park tour, which was excellent as well!
Insightful guided tour at a great price

Edwin was an excellent guide full of fascinating information about the area and history of Oregon. He also offered great suggestions for places to go in Portland city. The tour allowed for ample time to take in the breathtaking falls of the area.
