  • Absolutely awesome tour. Knowledgeable tour guide. I would recommend this tour if you ever get to Portland. The falls are amazing.

  • The tour was great. The process of going from voucher to bus-boarding pass should be better explained the exchange can be made the prior day. That was small. Thirty minutes longer would have really super.

  • Sadly the tour was cancelled due to wild fires caused by a teenager's fireworks.

  • My husband and I loved this tour. We had mostly wanted to see the Falls and the Columbia River Gorge, but we also really liked seeing the Booneville dam and fish hatcheries.
    Our guide, May, was very good and shared a wealth of information. She and Greyline handled a bus problem very efficiently.

  • Sights were amazing. Our driver was informative and very helpful.

  • Simply Beautiful !! A must in Portland !!

  • Our tour guide, Ms. May, is awesome, very willing to help and has so many interesting information provided along the way. The falls and dam were spectacular, the tour is also reasonably priced. Only pity was the time constraint, each stop has no more than 20-30 minutes so it's hard to fully enjoy the scene for some ppl busy taking pictures.

  • We a family of seven were VERY pleased with our tour! Our guide did a wonderful job getting us place to place as his kept our attention focused on the next place of interest around the bend with his narrative!

  • Greyline tours is awesome. I needed the wheelchair accessible coach but it had a mechanical problem. When they couldn't get it fixed in time - they arranged for a RadioCab that was accessible and sent one of Greyline's drivers along as tour guide - what an awesome tour we had. I can't say enough about how Greyline handled this, and the tour was fantastic.

  • This tour was amazing!
