What You Can Expect

Multnomah Falls and Columbia River Gorge Tour from Portland

See nature's gorgeous falls

Your trip begins early at Pioneer Square in downtown Portland, where you'll embark en coach for the drive through Columbia River Gorge. Enjoy spectacular views as the sun crests the Cascade Mountains and lights up the Gorge’s protected landscape. 

As your coach travels along the river, you'll admire the natural and cultural sights, from rare plants and wildlife to geological wonders and ancient Indian rock art. Your expert guide will narrate the journey, providing historical context to the present-day surroundings.

Climb high above the valley to the Vista House at Crown Point for unparalleled views that have been enjoyed by travelers to this site since 1916. Take plenty of photos from this panoramic viewpoint before heading back down into the National Scenic Area, where you'll stop at Latourell Falls, Wahkeena Falls and the famous Multnomah Falls. Known as the second-tallest in the US, Multnomah Falls never dries up, even in the hot summer months. So a great picture can always be taken from Benson Bridge!

Next, your trip continues to Bonneville Dam, a masterpiece of modern engineering that provided hydropower to the Gorge since the 1930s. During your 30-minute stop here, learn about the challenging construction process and admire the grandeur and juxtaposition of industry combined with nature.

Your trip back to Portland tracks the trail of the famous explorers Lewis and Clark, touching on key points from their expedition over 200 years ago such as Beacon Rock, Rooster Rock and Cape Horn. 

Your approximate 4-hour tour ends back in Portland by early afternoon.

The tour was great. The process of going from voucher to bus-boarding pass should be better explained the exchange can be made the prior day. That was small. Thirty minutes longer would have really super.

My husband and I loved this tour. We had mostly wanted to see the Falls and the Columbia River Gorge, but we also really liked seeing the Booneville dam and fish hatcheries.
Our guide, May, was very good and shared a wealth of information. She and Greyline handled a bus problem very efficiently.

Our tour guide, Ms. May, is awesome, very willing to help and has so many interesting information provided along the way. The falls and dam were spectacular, the tour is also reasonably priced. Only pity was the time constraint, each stop has no more than 20-30 minutes so it's hard to fully enjoy the scene for some ppl busy taking pictures.

Greyline tours is awesome. I needed the wheelchair accessible coach but it had a mechanical problem. When they couldn't get it fixed in time - they arranged for a RadioCab that was accessible and sent one of Greyline's drivers along as tour guide - what an awesome tour we had. I can't say enough about how Greyline handled this, and the tour was fantastic.
