Know More about this tour

Due to the wildfire on the Oregon side of the Columbia River Gorge this tour will be running on a modified itinerary. 

Modified itinerary: Visit the beautiful Columbia River Gorge! We will first stop at Portland Women's Forum. The view from here is absolutely breathtaking and with the scenic Vista House and the wide expanse of the Columbia Gorge in the background, more photographs of the Columbia Gorge are probably taken from this point than anywhere else.

As we drive to our next stop we will slowly drive past Multnomah Falls. Due to the Eagle Creek Fire this waterfall is still closed to visitors but you will be able to view it and take pictures of it as we drive past it!

Next we will stop at Starvation Creek Falls.  This two-tiered waterfall is impressive! The powerful fall drops out of a narrow channel and into a natural bowl, where the creek spills out and down to a rocky mess before cascading past a picnic area and on to the Columbia River. 

The Bridge of the Gods will be our third stop during our exploration of the Gorge.  Constructed in 1926, the Bridge of the Gods takes it name from a Native American myth describing a large natural rock bridge over the Columbia River at the bridge site. 

Our final stop in the Gorge will be the Bonneville Fish Hatchery.  Bonneville Hatchery is  the largest of Oregon’s 33 hatcheries. The hatchery raises 8 million Fall Chinook, 1.2 million Coho, 200,000 Summer Steelhead, and 60,000 Winter Steelhead.  You will be able to explore the Historic Egg Incubation Building, visit Herman the Sturgeon, and feed the fish!  

Original itinerary: Crown Point Vista House, best known of the scenic lookouts along the Historic Columbia River Highway, provides a panoramic view of the Columbia River. The Crown Point Vista House was built in 1916 and refurbished and completely remodeled in 2005, with its beautiful marble interior and brass fixtures.  Latourell Falls plunges 249 feet (76 m) over a massive wall of columnar basalt, some of the best formations in the Pacific Northwest, before cascading hastily toward the Columbia River. This waterfall is usually most recognized for the large patch of bright yellow lichen adorning the cliff face to the right of the falls, and this characteristic has led many famous photographers to this captivating location. 

Multnomah Falls is the second highest year-round waterfall in the United States. Nearly two million visitors a year come to see this ancient waterfall, making it Oregon’s number one public destination. Fed by underground springs from Larch Mountain, the flow over the falls varies but is highest during winter and spring.  Horsetail Falls was named for its distinctive form and plunges 176 feet. The trail leads to Upper Horsetail Falls, also called Ponytail Falls. There, the trail leads behind the base of the falls. There is a great opportunity to stop and take some photos or simply enjoy the beauty of the surrounding area.

  • Excellent tour considering the devastating fire they had in the Columbis River Gorge! The tour guide was excellent.

  • wonderful tour and fantastic tour guide.

  • Beautiful half day tour! I would suggest taking this tour during slower days. We were given a good amount of time at each stop but the weekend crowds made it hard to really appreciate all the beautiful stops. Just had enough time to briskly get to the photo view points and bathroom. When the tour is over, we're given the option of returning to one of largest food truck pods for lunch totally recommended if you haven't been

  • We had very few hours to dedicate to sightseeing during our visit to Portland this summer. Could not have made a better choice.

  • I went on this tour with 2 girlfriends on a girls weekend. John dominic LOL was our driver/tour guide. Not only was he knowledgeable but he had an outgoing personality. he had an low key, and uplifting spirit. we had a really great time with him. He was very articulate and spoke clearly specially with all us girls joking and laughing with and over him. we would highly recommend this tour and John all the way!!!
