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.

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

Fabulous from start to finish. Seamus went the extra mile literally again and again. His enthusiasm for Portland, its people, and the Columbia River Gorge were infectious as his laugh. We never could have replicated the sights and knowledge and driving that he performed. A sweet and memorable and carefree day it was.

Our tour guide, Seamus, was awesome. A native Oregonian he loves his state and has a real joy and enthusiasm when talking about it and explaining it to those of us who don't know it like he does. The trip to the waterfalls in the morning was beautiful even in the rain. He gave us plenty of time to explore. Lunch at a favorite spot of his was terrific. He introduced us to local Portland beers and terrific food. The afternoon tour was a little rushed though as we only had about 15 minutes in the Rose garden. But all in all I would go on any tour with Seamus and would highly recommend this one.
