Best of Portland Small-Group Sightseeing Tour

Explore Portland in style by luxury vehicle. Get the lay of the land with a thorough tour of the city with an emphasis on seeing green spaces and parks with a naturalist guide. The tour is designed for visitors who want to go beyond the main sights to get to know Portland’s diverse neighborhoods and history, and to learn about native flora and fauna.

What to Expect

Start the day with a pick-up at your downtown Portland hotel and enjoy pastries and seasonal snacks as you settle into your luxury van and make your way to the Pittock Mansion to delve into Portland’s history and take in city views from the Mansion’s manicured grounds.

Next, get your bearings with a tour of the city’s four quadrants, stopping to explore the shops, art galleries, restaurants, and bars that give Hawthorne, Alberta, The Pearl District, and other neighborhoods their distinct identity. 

Then tour some of Portland’s parks to learn about native plants and animals with your naturalist guide. Explore wooded walking trails at Mount Tabor, the graceful lawns and ponds of Laurelhurst Park, over 500 varieties of roses at the International Rose Test Garden, or panoramic views from Washington Park depending on the season.

Finally, end your tour at Powell’s bookstore, one of the largest bookstores in the world

I didn’t see any free parking. But we parked at an open lot with an attendant just across the street. It was not free, but it was a very good rate for the entire day.

We were in a large van, but I don’t recall a ramp. The tour itself is accessible, but I’m not sure about the transportation. I highly advise emailing the company with your question though!
