Full description

Take a guided tour of Portland in a small group. Throughout the tour, you'll enjoy beautiful vistas as you drive the hills and bridges in a comfortable, climate-controlled vehicle. Your guide will pick you up at Director Park, then give you background on the landmarks you pass. Learn the city's history as you wander the neighborhoods of central Portland. Stop at the International Rose Test Garden, where you'll have 20 minutes to walk among the 550 rose varieties. Then, you'll ascend even higher into the hills to Pittock Mansion, which provides the best view of Portland and 5 stratovolcanoes, in clear weather.

The guide was exceptional. He knew anything we asked. Marcus came prepared with a great tour and when we asked about a specific topic, he quickly changed his plan to accomodate us. He had great stories, too. His Mercedes van was clean and looked new. He also was covid prepared and even had water and snacks.

We had a great time. Our guide Terran was very knowledgeable tour guide and an excellent driver. He also went above and beyond picking me and my husband from Oregon city. In three hours we could see more than we would be able to see in a week if we were doing it on our own. I highly recommend this tour to the visitors of all ages.
