    We did the 1/2 day bike and hike of the Columbia River Gorge. Our guide was Keiran who set us up on the bikes, gave good instructions and drove us all to the River. The locations on the Gorge were beautiful and really fun hikes to get there. The bike riding was easy through some very pretty wooded areas and Keiran followed us with the van. There were more waterfalls to view though our time was up, but Keiran offered to take us to more if we had the time which we all did. A very memorable trip made fun and safe. Next time in Portland will definitely do this again.

    The entire staff friendly and helpful but out guide Daniel was great. He enthusiastically went out of his way to make our trip fun. Going back to do the bike/brewery tour and looking forward to it.

    This type was so great for many reasons. To start, our guide Ana was so friendly and knowledgeable- really good conversationalist so there was never awkward silences. The concept of the tour was great- drive to the top of the hill and coast down on bikes stopping every couple miles for a mini hike to a waterfall or other point of interest. Not too strenuous to deter a someone in average shape but not so easy to be boring. Over all it was 10 miles of biking (80% downhill) and 4 miles of trail walking/hiking

    We had a great time with Scotland on our tour. We enjoyed the mix of hiking and biking and learning about the history of this area and the historical sites.

    Daniel provides lots of information and was a great host. There were lots of interesting stories. The bikes were well maintained and comfortable. Scenery was spectacular.

    Ana was a great guide -- she gave enough knowledge to give background and details about each place, but still enough space to take everything in and enjoy the scenery and nature on your own. We really enjoyed the trip and would recommend for anyone visiting Portland without a ton of time to get out of the city. It was a great way to see some of the beautiful nature and landscapes so close to the city.

    Although the area we saw was great and the guide was pleasant; it is NOT an easy ride. It may be that you don't have to pedal much but the ride is on narrow and often slippery roads (from the rain). This is NOT A RIDE FOR KIDS!I highly recommend a waterfall tour because they are amazing to see. There are other safer places to ride and other tours to see the waterfalls.

    My cousin and I were a bit apprehensive about biking along the highway since neither one of us had ridden a bike in years, but the bikes were easy to control. The entire route was down hill, so there’s no strenuous uphill peddling involved. Daniel, our guide, was very informative and provided much history about the area. The views along our journey was absolutely breathtaking and the waterfalls were stunning.

    The tour went very well. We met Daniel at Pedal Bike and he was very well organized and very knowledgeable. The bikes were in excellent condition and easy to ride. The locations chosen were excellent and easy to ride or hike to.
    Very nice tour will highly recommend it.

    This was a fantastic tour! Our tour guide, Duncan, as excellent in every way! He shared a lot of information about the area, including ecological, urban, plant and animal life, history, etc. I could not recommend him strongly enough! For those who might have concern, the biking was super easy! Every section was literally downhill except the last one, which was 1.5 miles flat. The hiking was also easy, though the 2-ish miles hike up and around one of the falls does take a little effort, but nothing to be concerned with. It was a great day! Thanks, Duncan!
