      Nice day trip
      Our guide was very knowledgeable, full of information and lively. I only wished we had some extra time at the town we had lunch to see some of the small stores. The drive was smooth. Nature was beautiful. Thank you!

      Great Portland Day Trip
      We were in Portland for a day before heading to the Oregon coast. Picked this half day adventure and it was fantastic. Pick up was easy with lots of available parking nearby. Van was comfy. Zeke was our guide and he was great. Gave us lots of info about things en route and back and gave us great tips for viewing the falls as well. Highly recommend.

      Beautiful sites with much historical background.
      This was a full day of beautiful sights and Joe, our guide was terrific! We learned so much about the history of the area. It was a relaxing, albeit very hot, day. We would highly recommend.

      We had a wonderful experience with our tour guide, Eric! He is super knowledgable and kept the facts going for the whole time. We saw every waterfall we could hope for and enjoyed the AC in the van between them. Highly recommend!

      Best waterfall tour!
      Mel was a terrific guide, very informative without being boring! Loved it all. We got to see lots of waterfalls, learned some interesting history of portland and the park and all from the comfort of a van. I would not have changed a thing!

      Beautiful Falls - Misleading Photo
      This is a mixed review. I will start with the disappointing - the photo used to sell the trip is misleading. There is no opportunity to see the Mountain from that perspective as I later learned the photo is taken from Lake Trillium. Lunch in Hood River is just okay. Visit to the berry farm is rushed. Now for the wonderful! The waterfalls and the Gorge are all breathtaking and definitely worth a half-day tour. The tour guide Chuck was very knowledgeable and gave a broad insight to not only the stops but the Portland area in general. I enjoyed the trip but would have been just as satisfied with a half-day tour. If you decide to take the full-day up to the mountain, remember to dress in layers and bring a jacket appropriate for the season. There is at least a 20 degree drop in temp.

      Amazing countryside—-lush and green with so many lovely orchards of various kinds of fruits and nuts. The wineries were welcoming and made you feel as part of their total experience in the W V. The Pinot Gris, Chardonnay and Rose’s were excellent—- mostly crisp and dry— just the way I like them! Eric was a gem and so knowledgeable! He put up with our crazy and diverse group and made it fun!

      Tour of Columbia River with Joe
      Our tour guide and driver, Joe, was great. Knowledgable and patient. He took time to show us places and shared his first hand experience at each place. It was great to have that personal touch on the tour. Great guy. We will recommend the tour and him to friends and family in the future. Thanks

      Don’t miss out on this!
      This is an excellent tour of just some of the 65 waterfalls which grace the Columbia River Gorge region. The area is spectacular, and the tour captures some fabulous sights and experiences. Our guide was Shannon, who provided an outstanding commentary delivered with passion and intelligence. Comfortable van, good selection of snacks provided. Don’t miss this one!

    I waited several weeks before writing this review, thinking I might cool off a bit with time. I have not.

    After reading every review on TA on Oregon Coast tours we opted to go with Wildwood Adventures.

    Our tour was on Saturday, August 5th at 9:00 am.
    We arrived a bit early and a tour van was packed full and just preparing to depart. The tour guide of that van was very friendly and stated that we were booked on the next van that would be pulling up shortly. Indeed it arrived just a minute later.

    We were delighted to have only seven tourists plus the guide/driver on our tour. There was plenty of room to spread out and be comfortable. We were expecting a wonderful eight hour trip full of tons of information on the area. Past reviews on TA raved about their guides and how informative they were, knowledgeable about the area, the wealth of info they got on the trip and how much fun it was. I won't mention our guide's name, but let's just say he was not one of them mentioned on the positive TA reviews I read.

    Yes, the van left on time, we made it to the coast, saw some beautiful sights, ate at Cannon Beach and made it back safe and sound. The drive felt safe and we arrived back to Portland just shortly after our scheduled time. While our driver was courteous it was very obvious he either hated his job or just did not want to be there. It felt like maybe he was called into work on a day he would otherwise have had off. We certainly didn't have the same experience as all of the 4 and 5 star reviews I had read. Although he would answer any questions we had, there was not much volunteered info from him or tour commentary. It was a very blah trip and frankly, we couldn't wait to get back to Portland.

    I'm not sure what happened, but we certainly didn't have the same experience as the other's listed on here. I have taken more than 15 guided tours all over the world. This was, without a doubt, the most disappointing. We paid $300 for two of us. If I knew what I was getting that day, I would not have even paid $100!  We had a rental car and I could have driven the route and got a guide book on the area for free from AAA and could have gotten more information than what we received from our tour guide. I got the impression that we were not the only ones frustrated and disappointed.

    I only tipped 10% and it was difficult handing that over. The tour guide we had was just terrible. I regret spending the money and wasting our time on this tour.

    Safe travels.

    Hello, Thank you so much for taking the time to provide feedback. We apologize that you didn’t feel like your tour was top notch. We have very high expectations of all our guides. Everybody on our team has remained with us because of their passion for travel and nature and their enthusiasm to share that with visitors. Our training is very thorough for all guides, and safety, knowledge, and friendliness should be top priority on each and every tour. We wish we had known about this instance sooner, but we also understand the delay. We encourage you to give our main office a call to chat with one of our managers if there may be more to add or if there is anything else you think we should know about your experience. We will be investigating this further to make sure this is not an ongoing issue, as it is absolutely not ok. If you ever find yourself back in the Portland area, we would love a second chance to explore with you and make things right! Thank you, Wildwood Adventures

    The correspondence prior to this day trip to the Oregon Coast went very well. The day prior to the tour, we received a text message that Ecola State Park would be closed on the tour date for preventive maintenance, so instead Sam, our guide, added another stop at the beach in Manzanita. In addition, we stopped at Haystack Rock, Cannon Beach with Bruce's Candy Kitchen and Lazy Susan Cafe, Oswald West State Park, Neahkahnie Overlook. Sam was informative and has a good portion of humor. Very enjoyable guide. Go Sam! We highly recommend this day trip.

    Our tour guide Sam was the best! She made sure we took good pictures and her lunch recommendation for Kiki’s taco was great. All the stops were picture perfect. Really a must do while in Portland. The pick up location was also really convenient. Sam had to run a little behind but she was good at keeping the lines of communication open and letting us know she was a few minutes behind schedule

    We enjoyed the Oregon Coast tour immensely. Our guide and driver, Evan, was outstanding. He was knowledgeable about the geologic history of the region, as well as the more recent. His driving was excellent and he was very helpful with the slower members of our group. The coastal views were magnificent! We recommend the tour as one of the best ever. Scheduling was easy and the pickup and drop off were right on time!

    This was my first of two tours with Wildwood, and if I had stayed longer I would have done at least one more - they were that good. My guide in both cases (see my tour of Columbia Gorge and Mount Hood) was Evan, who was outstanding. I learned so much about the geological history of the area, the different types of trees and other flora that we saw, and the role of salmon in local economic history. We had very well-spaced rest and stretch stops, and longer stops for photography and lunch. The van was very comfortable, everyone was masked, and Evan is an excellent driver. He spoke with each of us, and offered to take photos for us all against amazing backdrops. At one stop he took a few of us on an extra hike through a cool gnarly forest down to a secluded beach. I couldn't have been happier with this tour.

    The Oregon Coast Tour is very much dependent on the weather conditions along the coast. Since there was a lot of fog the day of our tour, it was difficult to fully enjoy the coastline’s beauty. That being said, our tour guide, Sam, was awesome. She gave us lots of information about the vegetation and trees in the area. Our stop for lunch in the town of Canon Beach was also very pleasurable.

    No exaggeration, this was absolutely incredible. Chuck was a great guide, providing tales of history, geography, science and fun Trivia all along the journey. He brought us to spectacular sites in a luxury van. Honestly one of the best trips of my life, the scenery is amazing, the trees, the cliffs and the ocean.
    Tip- it was a lot cooler by the coast so bring layers. Also, an umbrella!

    This tour was our favorite part of our 1st trip to Oregon. We had no idea that the Oregon coastline was so beautiful. Our stops seemed like hidden gems, with our guide, Dave, knowing all of the best vantage points to capture the best views and a great deal about the area. While a bit of fog kept the lighthouse under cover, the fog added dramatic dimensions to photos and was only noticeable during the early part of our day. We definitely have plans to return the the Oregon Coast. I would recommend this tour to anyone,

    David was awesome, tour went from 9am till about 4pm. We went to several locations near the coast, had lunch, hiked, picked some berries. It was a wonderful time. Dave was a great driver and was extremely knowledgeable about all things in Oregon, super friendly. Will do it again when I’m back in Portland!

    What an incredible adventure! We traveled to the coast with Andy and Mel. They were so knowledgeable and patient with my elderly parents and aunt. We originally thought we could just drive to the coast ourselves. What a mistake that would have been! Andy knew the history of the area and many great viewing areas that we would have missed. We returned with hundreds of beautiful phptos and a deeper and richer knowledge of this beautiful place.
