Know More about this tour

After being picked up from your Portland hotel, travel through various parts of 'Rip City', from downtown to the Pearl District to Nob Hill, plus several other neighborhoods. Visit all the must-see attractions, including Pioneer Courthouse Square, and learn about the great diversity found in Portland's downtown area, the historical importance it has played in the state's history, and the fast-growing culture that exists here.
Learn about the many prominent and notable citizens of Oregon. Tour through the Pittock Mansion, a meticulously preserved architectural landmark that symbolizes Portland's transformation from a small lumber town into a bustling city. While traveling, let the fragrance of more than 550 different varieties of roses from the lush and beautiful Washington Park delight your senses.
The last stop is the Lan Su Chinese Garden, one of Portland's greatest treasures and arguably the most interesting site to see while visiting the city. The garden is the result of a collaboration between the cities of Portland and Suzhou, a sister city in China's Jiangsu province that's famous for its beautiful Ming Dynasty gardens.

You will have a variety of options to choose from for lunch.

Visit the beautiful Columbia River Gorge! Your adventure will take place along the Historic Columbia River National Scenic Byway, where some of the locations we may stop include: Portland Women's Forum, Crown Point Vista House, Latourell Falls, and Multnomah Falls.

Your tour will start with the view from Portland Women's Forum. This location is absolutely breathtaking and it's one of the best spots to soak in a view of one of the most beautiful places on earth: the magnificent, awesome Columbia River Gorge.
Next, we will stop at Crown Visit Point House with a complete overlook of the Gorge region. Crown Point Vista House, best known of the scenic lookouts along the Historic Columbia River Highway, provides a panoramic view of the Columbia River.
Our next stop is Latourell Falls. This waterfall plunges 249 feet over a massive wall of columnar basalt, some of the best formations in the Pacific Northwest, before cascading hastily towards 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.
We may also stop at Bridal veil falls. This beautiful waterfall is an elegant and graceful cascade that can be fully appreciated from the deck of a viewing platform rebuilt in 1996.
Next, we will drive to Multnomah Falls. According to Native American lore, Multnomah falls was created to win the Heart of a young princess who wanted a hidden place to bathe. Multnomah falls is the most visited natural recreation site in the Pacific Northwest!

The tour ends with a return trip and drop-off in Portland.

    The Portland Sightseeing Tour Including Columbia Gorge Waterfalls with Heather was an excellent tour! We saw the many sights of Portland including the city, food carts, doughnut shop, and the Columbia Gorge Waterfall and another waterfall. Heather made the trip very interesting and she was a fun person! This was one of my favorite tours in Portland. The Gorge area is breathtaking! A must do if you are in Portland!

    It was a drizzly rainy day and our "tour guide " was about as lackluster as the weather. When asked questions about the area he really didn't know much. a woman who was also on the tour got into the front seat and they just talked personal chit chat most of the tour. I expected to be educated not entertained by his talk of his limited personal life. He was a good driver.

    I really enjoyed this excursion into Columbia Gorge to view the NW wilderness. Our guide was on time for my pickup and knowledgeable about what we were seeing. The visit included excellent views of Mt. Hood and even St. Helen. Portland is a lovely city and I enjoyed my short time there.

    Booked day tour via site for 15th June 2019 and the pickup was scheduled between 8.45 - 9.00am. The tour guide came 15mins early and I started early for the trip. Couple of pickups we had on the way and started with our city tour. After city tour we stopped for lunch and then continued our tour for different waterfalls. Our tour guide Crystal was extremely helpful and knowledgeable.

    We spent the day with Evan. Sometimes you take a tour and just want it to be over. Not with Evan. Great personality, knows his city, kind and a safe driver. So happy we did this tour with him.
