          Phil enhanced our experience as a guide and driver. The transit passes at Multnomah falls were useful. Rowena crest was a good choice for a quick stop.

          Scenery was wonderful...guide, not so much.
          The stops on the tour were wonderful, but I felt very rushed. The guide, John, made no effort to get to know anyone or even introduce us to each other. It was not interactive at all. He just talked non-stop the entire tour. He was very upset if people were even just 3 minutes late getting back. We have no control over bathroom lines, and don't know where we are going. Then, he made one stop just 45 minutes out from home so he could stretch his legs. Everyone was resting and didn't want to stop. I would have rather had that 20 minutes at the falls or some other stop. But it was clear this tour was about what he wanted. This is a paycheck for him, not a job he enjoys.

          do not care about customer...
          They put the wrong filter on our e450. Caused the bus to over heat. They will not back up their work and said we will have to get a lawyer to get our money for the tow and repairs.. The worse customer service ever!!!

          Great tour, stunning scenery well guided by Phill
          Trip was amazing the guide was extremely knowledgeable and engaging. From the pick up from our hotel through the tour and return the guide, Phil Sollers provided information and ditties concerning the area and his life as a Portlander. The locations we visited were stunningly beautiful. The tour is meant to accommodate 12 guests but on this occasion there was only 5 of us in 2 families so nothing was rushed. Thank you Phill for a fabulous day.

          Great Tour Company
          CYCLE PORTLAND is a great bike vendor / tour operator to use. Even though I was the only one signed up for the two hour bike ride, they did not cancel the tour, which I thought was decent of them. Jaydon and Charlies were my tour guides, very informative, kept me safe, I enjoyed the loop ride around the river so much.

          A fabulous day trip. John was an excellent guide - entertaining and knowledgeable, and made sure everyone was happy and kept the group on time at the various stops so we got to see everything. The falls were spectacular, and Timberline lodge (as seen in The Shining) was great to see, but the whole day was really good as we got to see so much of the beautiful area around Portland.

          Lovely Experience
          I had a lovely time. We had a smaller group (just the three of us) and were able to customize the trip a bit to you liking and the weather. It was rainy, and we added a little quick visit to Tillamook for cheese and ice cream sampling, and stopped by to get fresh California cherries (one of the highlights). Our driver and tour guide was knowledgeable and really thoughtful, the van was comfortable, the views did not disappoint. Overall, a lovely experience.

          Waterfalls Galore!
          John was awesome as our guide. He was very knowledgeable and gave us a ton of historical context. We saw tons of waterfalls on our tour of the Columbia River Gorge. I also want to give a shout out to their office who were very accommodating and moved us to another tour when Mt Hood was cancelled due to weather. We appreciate very much you all doing so.

        This is a great tour to see the waterfalls and hear all about some Portland history as well. Angela was our tour guide, and she was wonderful! They do supply water and are great at getting the best photos. She was great with recommendations on other things to do around Portland as well. It is well worth the cost to avoid the parking issues and driving. I would highly recommend these tours. I wish that we had booked more while we were there!

        Loved it!! Gunner was the best tour guide! We saw so much and there was zero pressure to speed through anything. We took our 4 year old and he was easily able to keep up and enjoy it all as well. Highly recommend this trip!!

        If you are considering taking this tour, stop what you are doing and book it. This was an amazingly beautiful experience to so many surreal waterfalls. Was in town for a conference and booked this solo, it was worth 10x what I paid. Jeff was a wonderful guide, knowledgeable, funny and courteous. So lucky to experience the beauty of Oregon. Forever grateful.

        Beautiful falls, and spectacular nature! Our guide, Cam, was so knowledgeable with many fun facts!!! Our group was small and not in a hurry, so she took us to some of the other falls too. We did not expect to learn so much about the history of the area the ecology. We had a massive view of the George too, a little foggy, but still beautiful!

        Absolutely wonderful! Well worth the cost. Much better than driving and trying to park on your own. What really made the trip outstanding was our guide Adam Thorn Smith. He was highly knowledgeable, personable and entertaining. He showed us so much than just the Multnomah Falls!

        Carrie was a knowledgeable and thoughtful guide. She was engaged and eager to share what she knew about the area. The spaces visited were absolutely beautiful. Well worth the time if you only have a few hours to explore! We were visiting for a conference and wanted to make the most of our trip. This tour was perfect for that.
        Customer service was excellent. We received a message about an earlier pick up that didn’t work for us and she was happy to change her schedule to fit ours. Excellent experience, highly recommend!

        Excellent guide, comfortable van, prompt service. The falls were magnificent. Need to be able to climb stairs /navigate ramps to get to most of the waterfalls on this tour. The view from Vista House overlooking the Columbia River was spectacular. Unfortunately, the house was closed for the day as it runs on volunteers and no one was available. Some of the roads on this tour are very hairpin so beware if you have motion sickness issues. Very enjoyable 3 hours.

        Phoebe was amazing! She had so much knowledge about the tour stops and the area in general. This was an amazing way to see the waterfalls without renting a car. I highly recommend this tour, you will see so much!
