  • This tour was amazing. My husband and I truly enjoyed the tour and the guide. His knowledge of Portland was extraordinary.

  • The river tour was fantastic! However the small group city tour was disappointing. The tour guide was great. I was lead to believe the tour would be for up to 4 people. Our group was 7. Not what I wanted and not what I thought I purchased
