Multnomah Falls and Columbia River Gorge Tour from Portland with Gray Line

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    What to Expect
    Your trip begins early in downtown Portland, where you'll embark via coach for the drive through Columbia River Gorge. Enjoy spectacular views as the sun crests the Cascade Mountains and lights up the Gorge’s protected landscape. 

    As your coach travels along the river, you'll admire the natural and cultural sights, from rare plants and wildlife to geological wonders and ancient Indian rock art. Your expert guide will narrate the journey, providing historical context to the present-day surroundings.

    Climb high above the valley to the Vista House at Crown Point for unparalleled views that have been enjoyed by travelers to this site since 1916. Take plenty of photos from this panoramic viewpoint before heading back down into the National Scenic Area, where you'll stop at Latourell Falls, Wahkeena Falls, and the famous Multnomah Falls. Known as the second-tallest in the US, Multnomah Falls never dries up, even in the hot summer months. So a great picture can always be taken from Benson Bridge!

    Next, your trip continues to Bonneville Dam, a masterpiece of modern engineering that provided hydropower to the Gorge since the 1930s. During your stop here, learn about the challenging construction process and admire the grandeur and juxtaposition of industry combined with nature.

    Your trip back to Portland tracks the trail of the famous explorers Lewis and Clark, touching on key points from their expedition over 200 years ago such as Beacon Rock, Rooster Rock, and Cape Horn. 

    Your tour ends back in Portland by early afternoon.

    We made the choice because the lowest price of the tours provided the most minutes of touring with the added bonus of a full-sized touring bus. We experienced more than we expected. Our driver provided interesting facts during the drive out of the city and...More
