      Great way to see sights big and small
      Shannon was right on time and I can't imagine there is anyone more knowledgeable about Portland. We walked a circuitous route that covered everything big and small. A really great experience.

      Loads of fun!
      What a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon! Our guide, Nanci, was fantastic. Her knowledge of Portland is expansive and even though we've lived here for a number of years we learned lots of new fun facts. The chocolate/coffee shops were great. All of them were very welcoming. We highly recommend this tour.

      Terrific tour
      Shannon was a great tour guide. Her knowledge and history of the city was extensive. We’ve done a few walking tours in different cities and she was one of the best. Highly recommended.

      Interesting and fun
      I had a great time, and see the city differently after the tour. Kelly, our guide, was great at managing the bike riding aspect, showed us a variety of interesting art, and told us some great stories. It was fun, and enriching.

      Wonderful way to view the city
      My fiancé and I had a wonderful bike ride with Kelly. She was so incredibly knowledgeable about the city layout, its architecture, culture, history, and current “claims to fame”. While this was more my finance’s ask, throughout the entire trip I was incredibly glad we had gone through with it. By the end of the trip, we had some great recommendations for city activities and places/restaurants to check out. I think what made the trip particularly special was that Kelly provided a view into a different lifestyle as well, as someone who doesn’t own a vehicle. Overall her enthusiasm was contagious and we left the tour feeling like we knew the city inside and out - as much you can over a short time frame. Thanks again for a memorable visit!

      Great tour, great tour guide
      The tour was great! High energy and so informative! It was a full 2 hours and we came away with great history and an understanding of the city. Otniel was friendly and well versed in the art and history of downtown.

      What an amazing experience!
      It was a rainy and cooler day, but that didn’t stop Kelly from giving us one of the best experiences we had in Portland! There were just 4 of us on the tour. Kelly offered gloved to those who didn't have them, as we were biking in 40 degree weather. She said she constantly scouts out routes for the tours and made sure, with is being a bit out of shape that she kept an eye on when my husband had to stop going uphill (she said they do have one ebike if its really needed). The route she took us on was through a beautiful section of town where the slight uphill was first on the tour. After a certain point, everything was wither downhill or flat on the tour. We stopped off at 3 different "pods" (parking lots with food trucks). Kelly had us get drinks at the first one and we had a delicious cannoli. There was a tent with heaters in it to warm up a bit. Second place we stopped at was a newer pod of trucks with a beautiful permanent structure that we went into as Kelly got plentiful amounts of food for us to try. The last place we went to was an old Asylum that had been changed to house the food trucks. There we had an amazing waffle. Kelly was extremely knowledgeable and kind. Overall we would highly recommend this tour!!

      Edwin made us feel welcome, was very knowledgeable, accommodating and had a great sense of humor. He braved the elements and gave us a great tour, and we would request him again if given the opportunity.

      Walking behind waterfalls = wonder
      Just a gorgeous experience start to finish. My older kids and I were astonished by the variety of the landscape throughout the drive and once we got to the waterfalls, it was like diving into mossy wonders! The hiking was not too much but we definitely got in our steps. The rocks were so cool and walking behind the waterfalls was just unreal. I can’t wait to visit again.

      exploring beautiful Downtown Portland on a chilly day
      such a great tour for a chilly day! the chocolate stops were unusual and sooo good, very small business focused; I felt like I was really exploring the heart of downtown Portland’s business culture as well as learning a lot about the city and eating and drinking delicious things!

    I had one day in PDX and wanted to see as much as I could. I signed up for the morning City tour (including the Pittock Mansion vista) with Carrie, and the afternoon Columbia River and Multnoma Falls tour with Edwin (and Bear). Both tours were fantastic - warm, knowledgeable and experienced tour guides and a well designed itinerary. It made my short stay in PDX thoroughly enjoyable and I would gladly recommend Around Portland to fellow tourists. Thanks Carrie, Ed and Bear!

    We thoroughly enjoyed our tour and tour guide. He shared lots of history about the area, pointed out different trees, plants, birds. The waterfalls were beautiful and cool on a warm summer day. Highly recommend if you like to see the sights without long hikes, these were very short and do-able.

    This was an exceptional tour! The starting point is in the inner atrium of a storage place, but, very easy to find and check in. The van is very comfortable, and, our tour guide Edwin was absolutely exceptional. From the moment we left our location he gave us great recommendations on restaurants, pointed out locations with historical significance (with fantastic Simpson's references no less), started us off at a wonderful local farm / fruit stand, and, then provided a very easy and accessible multi stop tour of the gorge. Edwin would go into great detail about the relevance of each stop which was a perfect pairing to the natural beauty of the landscape. This is called a "hiking" excursion but it is very light and accessible for most. Overall this was an incredible experience which made our families time in Portland extremely memorable.

    My tour was amazing with Carrie. I thought she was informative and she took us on an actual hike at the Horsetail falls. I was a little worried at first that we would not do any hiking because I didn't realize at our first stop (Multnomah Falls), they don't allow guides in and it was very paved there. However, that was the only place that didn't allow guides and she took us around and let us explore at each of the stops. She knew a lot about plants and berries locally as well as had amazing food recommendations.

    We did this on a weekday and our guide did let us know that Friday-Mondays are much busier so if you are in town for a few days and can do a wednesday/Thursday, the waterfall views might be better with less crowds.

    Overall, I would recommend this tour to anyone.

    Also, we brought our own water but they gave water and snacks which was great!

    The tour was wonderful from beginning to end, largely due to our guide/driver Carrie. Also, we had a pleasant mix of visitors from young (20's) to boomers; fortunately, we were all good walkers. Carrietook us to 4 of the most well-known waterfalls and described how they're classified; we had short and easy hikes for the last two. Just being knowledgeable about the history, geology and local culture isn't enough to be a guide; one also has to be interpersonally adept and a bit of a "mother" in shepherding the flock but doing so gently. Carrie was a perfect guide in all those ways. Plus, she's a safe driver, navigating two lane roads carefully while providing a running narrative. I found her story about the Latourell family with 8 children who became entertainers fascinating! Also, you can ask her for suggestions of restaurants and eateries. She's a fountain of recommendations.

    Carrie was an awesome tour guide! She was conscientious of each attendee & made sure that we all were comfortable. Her passion for Oregon is amazing & she was able to provide all sorts of details for the entire drive, not just for the tour specifics. Her knowledge is vast & diverse & provided us with a fun experience! The gorge & falls were simply beautiful.

    For the tour it was my brother & I in our mid/late 40s and our 81 y/o mom whose birthday we celebrated that day. The who was with you option does not include an option for family/adults only.

    This is a hidden treasure just outside of Portland. My husband and I as well as some of my coworkers enjoyed the trip. The number and size of the waterfalls was amazing. my husband would not classify any of the walks we took to the waterfalls as a hike so as long as you have some basic athleticism you will enjoy it. The only thing we debated was if the price was work it. For the 6 of us to go it was ~$300 and we could rented a car for significantly cheaper and the tour guide didn't provide much to the experience except for the ride.

    Hi Jessica! I’m so glad you loved it. I’m sorry you felt your guide wasn’t providing much to the experience — our guides usually get rave reviews about their storytelling and knowledge. On the day you visited, our guides were dealing with very poor air quality due to persistent fires, so it could have been trouble communicating with your large group with the voice impact of the smoke, which is a significant impediment. We strive always to deliver a five star experience but perfection is a high bar! (Car rental may not be as cheap as you think, also, for a group your size.) I hope you’ll come back.

    We had such an amazing time on this tour! We saw 5 waterfalls in total and each one was beautiful in its unique way. Our tour guide, Sarah, was very knowledgeable about the area and knew all of the best spots to take us. We made memories (and took gorgeous photos) that will last a lifetime and we’ve already decided we want to go back! Highly recommend if you want to get out of the hustle and bustle of the city and experience some of Oregon’s natural beauty.

    Really cool tour. The views were amazing, John (I think that's his name? Sorry if it isn't. Haha) was a really cool down to earth tour guide. He told us some really interesting historical stories and didn't sugar coat the facts which I appreciated. I'd definitely recommend this tour to anyone who wants to do some short easy hikes at the Columbia River Gorge without renting a car.

    Carrie was nothing like that scary character. She brought us to 4 different waterfalls, brought a ton of insight and knowledge about the area and the wildlife around it. Carrie was a delight and I highly recommend to anyone visiting the area.

    4 waterfalls up!
