Portland Sightseeing Tour Including Columbia Gorge Waterfalls

Tours Portland
$105
On this full-day tour, you'll see the best of the Portland area including downtown's Pioneer Square, the famous food carts, eclectic neighborhoods and the Washington side of the Columbia River Gorge. Along the way, learn about Portland's interesting history and modern-day culture from your guide.

After a Portland hotel pickup, 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 delight the senses with the lush and beautiful Washington Park.

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.

You 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' over a massive wall of columnar basalt, some of the best formations in the Pacific Northwest, before cascading hastily toward 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 lady 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.

Wine Tour of Willamette Valley with a Personal Sommelier

Booze Tour Portland
$169

Kick back and relax on this five-hour wine tour near Portland.  This small group, semi-private tour will take you to 3+ wineries in Oregon's famed Willamette Valley. Limited to six people, the tour includes a lovely charcuterie platter of locally sourced items along with snacks and water. Sip delicious wines from boutique vineyards and enjoy the beautiful scenery. Your WSET certified Personal Sommelier will be your expert guide to help you understand why the Willamette Valley is so unique. This is not just another wine tour. It's a rare opportunity to learn more about wine and maybe diversify your wine cellar with the guide of a Personal Sommelier.

The Willamette Valley of Oregon is home to some of the best wine in the Pacific Northwest. Bordered by the green coastal ranges to the west and the snow-capped Cascade Range to the east, the valley features rich alluvial soils washed down from ice-age floods and numerous microclimates along scenic waterways and rustic farms. Although the area offers an abundance of varietals and styles for the discerning wine drinker, it is probably best known for its world-class Chardonnay and Pinot Noirs – the famed grapes of Burgundy in France. 

After your complimentary morning pickup from your centrally located Portland hotel, residence or central landmark, the tour begins with a brief introduction from your driver and guide – who also happens to be a WSET-certified sommelier. As you leave the frenetic pace of the city behind, your guide will fill you in on the local history and unique qualities that make the region such an ideal place for growing high-quality, premium wine grapes. Also, from April to October this six-hour public tour includes a pickup at the Newberg Sportsman Airpark in conjunction with our hot air balloon package.  

Your tour will visit between 3 and 4 wineries throughout the day and include bottled water, healthy snacks and a complimentary lunch featuring vegetarian and gluten-free options. Tasting fees are included for all stops up to $15 and you will have abundant options to purchase, ship, and sample additional wines at your own discretion and cost. The trip ends with a drop-off back at centrally located Portland locations or the Newberg Airpark, where you can proceed to nearby neighborhood restaurants to sample the local fare or back to your hotel or lodging to sleep off the amazing wine.

Note: Groups of two or three may be combined with your approval.

Haunted Pub Tour

Booze Tour Portland
$45

Take a spooky stroll through Portland, Oregon on this guided, 2.5-hour walking tour. The Old Town Historic District in downtown Portland is filled with beautiful old buildings and cobblestone streets. Join in on this year-round, spine-tingling walking tour and hear first-hand accounts of recent paranormal encounters — stories from Portland's early days when Old Town was home to drug trades, gambling, and prostitution. Along the way, enjoy 6 craft beer samples at local, award-winning breweries.

The Old Town Historic District in downtown Portland is lively with drinking establishments and restaurants today, but 120 years ago, it was home to many of Portland's less savory episodes — some would even go so far as to say 'wicked and lawless.' More over, it makes for the perfect stage for a Haunted Pub Tour.

In addition to (alleged) ghosts, the tour guide will offer stories from Portland's early days, when Old Town was home to drug trades, gambling, and prostitution. Learn about the notorious 'crimps,' whose rampant kidnapping tactics earned Portland the dubious distinction of being known as the most dangerous port city of the western hemisphere in the 1890s.

The tour will stop at three historic pubs for beer tastings and stories about Portland. Guests will hear first-hand accounts of recent paranormal encounters while sampling seven local craft Oregon beers — some are award-winning. Featured pubs include Kells Irish Pub and Brewery, Dan and Louis Oyster Bar, and Old Town Pizza, which is housed inside the old Merchant Hotel, known as Portland's most-haunted building.

The walking portion of the tour covers less than one mile and is entirely above ground. It has been rated as 'mildly spooky.'

After lunch, cross over the Bridge of the Gods to the Washington side of the Columbia River, and view traditional fishing platforms of local American Indian tribes. Wrap up your full-day tour at the Columbia Gorge Interpretive Center Museum, which showcases biographies and natural history, with special exhibits on the Lewis and Clark expedition, the timber and fishing industries, and the First Peoples of the Gorge, the Cascade Chinook.

Our experienced guides select the best breweries in town, and deliver you right to the doorstep of the craft brewery scene. After enjoying two unique breweries, this tour ends with a complimentary local micro-brew fresh off the taps in our bike shop!

Portland boasts the most brew pubs per capita and at 58 (the last time we counted) it would be dangerous to visit them all. Luckily we've narrowed it down to a few of our favorites and they all happen to be a short ride apart. Contact us about visiting your favorite brewery or if you want to inquire about the choices for the route.

Food and Beverages are not included at the first two stops so that there is no pressure to “drink your money's worth” and so that every one can be in control of their own intake levels.

Columbia River Gorge Tour and Portland Spirit Dinner Cruise

Food Tours Portland
$200
Your eight-hour tour begins by taking you from your hotel into the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area where you will see nature's beauty with gorgeous waterfalls like Multnomah Falls, Latourell Falls, and Horsetail Falls. You will also get to visit Vista House, which is considered the crown jewel of the Gorge. After our Gorge excursion, we will drop you at the Portland Spirit where you will take an evening dinner cruise on the Willamette River. After dinner transportation to your hotel is not included.

Starting with your pickup from your hotel in the Downtown Portland area at 2pm, you will spend the afternoon at Multnomah Falls and the Columbia River Gorge Waterfalls. As the tour proceeds, travel the Historic Columbia River Highway Scenic Byway. Along the way, see the Crown Point Vista House, the most popular of the scenic lookouts along the highway that provides a panoramic view of the Columbia River.

Latourell Falls plunges 249 feet over a massive wall of columnar basalt, some of the best formations in the Pacific Northwest, before cascading toward the Columbia River. This waterfall is most recognized for the bright yellow lichen adorning the cliff face, a favorite location of many famous photographers. A winding footpath and a bridge lead to an ideal vantage point for the Bridal Veil Falls. These falls consist of two cascades in quick succession along angling rock faces. This waterfall is one of the best-kept secrets in the Columbia River Gorge. People read about it, but rarely get a chance to view the actual waterfall.

Upon your return to Portland, you will be dropped off at the Portland Spirit for an evening dinner cruise on the Willamette River. The dinner cruise is a lively setting enhanced by dazzling sights along the riverfront. It will be an evening filled with gourmet cuisine, locally-sourced and prepared fresh on board.  Every plated entree is selected by each guest on board, including a house salad,  bread, house dessert, fountain soda, coffee, hot tea. This is a two-hour cruise, featuring entertainment, live performances, and live piano music.  You can expect to enjoy this tour with up to 13 other people.

Portland Indoor Skydiving Experience

Adventure Portland
$70
Feel the thrill of skydiving without jumping out of an airplane. It's true! Head to iFLY Portland, a premier indoor skydiving facility powered by a state-of-the-art vertical wind tunnel. After a training session, you'll experience free-fall conditions with the help of an instructor. No experience is necessary, and afterward, you can take home a personalized flight certificate.

Arrive at iFLY Portland, and get started by putting on your gear and going through a specialized training session from an expert flight instructor.

You'll learn how to safely float in an 800-horsepower vertical wind tunnel that generates a wall-to-wall cushion of air - commonly used by professional skydivers - without having to jump from a plane. Just about anyone can fly, and no experience is necessary.

Once you're inside the enclosed space of the flight chamber, a tunnel operator slowly increases the wind speed until you and your instructor are airborne. Feel the adrenaline rush as you float at wind speeds reaching 130 to 175 mph (209 to 282 kph). The stable wall-to-wall airflow keeps you from falling off the column of air, and your instructor is on hand at all times to guide you.

The entire indoor skydiving experience takes about 75 minutes from start to finish. Each session includes up to six people, but you fly one-on-one with your instructor for 60 seconds in the wind tunnel twice.

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. The Crown Point Vista House was built in 1916 and refurbished and completely remodeled in 2005.

Our next stop is Latourell Falls. This waterfall plunges 249' over a massive wall of columnar basalt, some of the best formations in the Pacific Northwest, before cascading hastily toward 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. 
 
Other waterfalls we may stop at while driving on the Historic Columbia River Highway include: 
Bridal Veil Falls- Beautiful Bridal Veil Falls is an elegant and graceful lady that can be fully appreciated from the deck of a viewing platform rebuilt in 1996. The creek hustles down from the top of nearby Larch Mountain, tumbles over the cliff and eventually flows into the mighty Columbia River.

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 with more than 2 million stopping by each year to take in the views! Fed by underground springs from Larch Mountain, this is  one of the best places in the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area to study geology exposed by floods.
