Overview

A half hour east of Portland can be found the Columbia river Gorge, Multnomah falls and some of the most magnificent scenery in the country; skyscraper cliffs, giant sturgeon, and majestic waterfalls. During the last ice age, a cataclysmic event occurred, that left a lasting monument along the path of the mighty Columbia River. A great flood sheared away the land, leaving stone cliffs and water falls that form the world famous Columbia River Gorge. View the majesty from the Vista House atop 800 foot sheer rock cliffs, see Multnomah falls, the second tallest year round waterfall in the country, or witness the free-falling splendor of Latourell Falls. In the autumn, witness salmon spawning in nearby Eagle Creek.

Highlights

  • See native wildlife in their natural environment
  • Led by a local guide
  • Choice of morning or afternoon departure
  • Small group ensures personal service

    Peter, our guide, was brilliant. He presented information about the geography, history, flora and fauna of the Columbia river Gorge in an interesting way, and was also informative about Portland itself whilst on the minibus driving through the city towards the Gorge.

    Such a beautiful reflection of God’s work! The falls are breathtaking, the trees are lush and vibrant, and the river is. This is truly nature at it’s best! Tour guide was conversant and knowledgeable. The hikes were fun. We were moved from the PM tour to the AM tour, and I am glad of the switch. Less crowd and traffic in the morning. I definitely recommend this tour!

    Knowledgeable tour guide presented history, geography, and biology of the Columbia River Gorge in an engaging way. And, no, waterfalls are not all the same!!! Must see!!!

    We traveled to Portland for a family trip - it was all adults. Our guide, Peter, was so wonderful from the moment he picked us up! He was super knowledgable about the area and did a great job giving us a background about all the waterfalls/places we visited along the way. I also have to add that my mom is hard of hearing, but she had no problem hearing Peter's booming voice (he'd be a great radio announcer!). Peter also accommodated an extra stop that we wanted to make on our way home. We had a great day touring the Columbia River Gorge and Oregon's beautiful waterfalls, and I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who is visiting the area!

    Wonderful experience. Pete, our guide, was fantastic in every way. Very personable, knowledgeable and passionate about the Oregon scenery. Since the waterfall areas are so crowded in the summer, you really need a guide to navigate the parking and traffic situations to be able to see the falls - and Pete was ideal for that. Highly recommend!

    My travel partner and I thoroughly enjoyed our Columbia gorge and waterfalls tour with Pete. He was very friendly and knowledgeable, which made for an excellent tour. Pete's tour was certainly a highlight of our time in Portland!

    You would be hard pressed to find a guide like Peter who is as passionate as he is about Oregon, wildlife and the local attractions. He went above and beyond to answer our questions and accommodate our every request. I highly recommend him and his company!
