What You Can Expect

Portland Sightseeing Tour Including Columbia Gorge Waterfalls

Latourell Falls

Your morning begins with a guided bus tour through Portland. You’ll be picked up from your downtown hotel to explore the hot spots of Portland’s westside such as Pioneer Courthouse Square, a living venue for the city’s key seasonal events. Your local guide will narrate the (sometimes macabre) history of Portland’s oldest neighborhoods including Vista Hills, Council Crest, Nob Hill, the Pearl District, North Mississippi and Alberta.

Drive high into the West Hills and marvel at the beauty of Washington Park, which offers an unobstructed view of Mount Hood. Explore Pittock mansion, former home to Portland pioneer and newspaper tycoon Henry Pittock, and meander through the International Rose Garden, where more than 550 varieties of roses invite you to test their signature perfume.

Explore Portland’s happening food carts, and sample delicacies (own expense) that range from poutine and fried-egg sandwiches to authentic Vietnamese and Mexican fare. 

Following lunch, leave the city behind for a tour of the Columbia River Gorge, where scattered waterfalls break through the gorge’s sheer stone walls. Your guide will explain how these waterfalls were formed and invite you to study the area’s fascinating geology at sites such as Bridal Veil Falls, Horse Tail Falls and Bonneville Dam. The grand finale of your waterfall tour is Multnomah Falls to stroll to the Benson Bridge and snap a souvenir photo.  

Your return to the hotel in Portland passes by the Vista House at Crown Point, where you can take in the majesty of the Columbia River Valley. The 8.5-hour tour ends by early evening.

Steve,our tour guide, was informative and friendly. He was a confident driver and made me feel at ease in the front passenger seat. He always opened and closed the doors for the passengers as well as assisting us when the step down was precarious. We got to all our destinations without a hitch and were able to spend adequate time at each one.

Excellent customer service!! It was my first time ever doing a tour and I had no idea where to go because I booked it the day earlier, customer service called me back in the morning and texted me where to go. Tom our tour guide was so nice and awesome! The Portland tour is great for someone who wants to get the most out of their trip! It was really interesting to hear all the facts about the city and the gorge. Thank you so much, can't wait to book again thru this company!

The trip to the Columbia gorge was fantastic. Our tour guide Steve was very knowledgeable. Michelle with the Tour Hub was great we missed the morning part of the tour due to weather from our initial destination but when I called them they did everything they can so we can at least get the afternoon portion . Thank you guys you have made our weekend. The tour was great did not have to worry about parking and the long line of traffic in the falls. We just had to enjoy the beauty that is Portland!!!

Super educational, breathtaking and comfortable. You definitely can't cover everything we covered while renting a car on your own or with a local friend. Our tour guide Steven Stephen? was amazing. Very patient, kind and very, very knowledgable about restaurants, history, land development and nature. We got a tree tour, a waterfalls tour, a landscape tour, a berry tour, city tour... And my husband loved the fact that he could sleep on the bus. Definitely recommend!

Great great tour of the entire city and the tour director Carrie was so terrific and cordial and pleasant and knowledgeable. I cannot say enough good things about her and her tour. This is the second time we have used your company. Hawaii and now. Tomorrow will be Seattle and we have never been disappointed in the tour or your directors giving them. Cudo's to your company
