As you drive through historic districts, including Old Town, the Pearl, the Cultural District, and the Government District, your knowledgeable guide will provide fascinating commentary on "Stumptown's" evolution from a dense forest, to wild western town, to the lively tourist destination it is today. One of the highlights of the tour is a visit to the historic Pittock Mansion, where you can wander the beautiful grounds and catch a breathtaking view of Mt. Hood.

Overall rating

I very much enjoyed the boat ride, but wasn't crazy about the bigfoot talk. I would rather have heard more about the geology or history of the area or just enjoyed the ride in silence.

Planning this activity was quick and easy. We had a great time taking the waterfall tour. Damon was well-versed, pleasant and professional. Exceeded our expectations.!

We had such a lovely time - the combo of the beautiful scenery and fun of BigFoot made for a memorable morning during our trip to Portland!

Everything was very comfortable, and our guide was very nice and explained everything to us very well.

Damon was an excellent guide. He gave us relevant information that was very interesting.
