Great guide who is very knowledgeable about the history of the Columbia River and the sites we visited. Several stops during the tour with plenty of time to enjoy the site and get out of the bus. Generally 30 minutes each. Wonderful experience.

Good intro tour to Multnomah Falls, the dam, fishery, Vista House, and Sherman's Falls. Driver was knowledgeable about the area and forgiving that we weren't always the quickest back on the bus.

So much easier than getting permits and parking passes! Tour guide added stops and told facts we would’ve never have known if we were on our own. Worth every penny!

This is an amazing tour. Worth to spend a half day with. The driver doubles as a tour guide is very experienced.

The tour was a very good scenic view of waterfalls. The tour guide was very knowledgeable of the area
