About
On this 3.5-hour tour, you'll get a broad overview of the Central City. We'll make stops at Pittock Mansion and the International Rose Test Gardens. At Pittock Mansion, you'll get pictures of the best views of the city, and the five stratovolcanoes that are visible on a clear day. You'll have plenty of time to smell the roses at the Rose City's most famous garden. Your expert guide will provide background on the sites and city history, while navigating through city traffic, so you don't have to. You'll meander through all of the major neighborhoods of inner Portland on both sides of the river while gaining views of 14 of Bridgetown's 22 notable bridges. Your guide will return you to your departure location at the end of the tour. Book our Explore Columbia River Gorge Half-Day Small-Group Tour as well, and receive $10 cash back.

The view of Mt. Hood on a beautiful clear day from the Pittock Mansion was breathtaking..such a magical almost mystical view from there. Marcus our guide took his time and did a great job of describing downtown Portland and it unique history..job very well done..our next visit we will use his tour to take a tour of Mt. Saint Helens! I recommend using Marcus as your tour guide if youre coming to Portland!

Great Intro to Portland as a whole!
Nov 2020 • Friends
We were a group of 3 and had an excellent time driving/walking around with Marcus. He was an excellent and knowledgeable tour guide. We learned a lot about the history of Portland, notable buildings, the MANY bridges and downtown Portland. We chose to do this tour on our first day so we could return to the spots we drove around and heard about during the tour. Recommend.

Great tour !!
Oct 2020
The Discover Portland​: Half day Small Group Tour was excellent, five stars !! The guide Marcus was extremely knowledgeable and never stopped filling us with facts and information. His Terran Travels new Mercedes Benz mini bus was extremely comfortable and perfectly clean. He planned the tour very well. Stops and toilet breaks were perfect. The tour totally exceeded our expectations. You will see the "whole" city, major points, scenic views, and all historic places. At the right time he offered everyone snacks and drink. My wife and I give this tour our highest rating. We strongly recommend you take this tour.

Had an amazing time!

Our guide was Marcus and he was just awesome - really knowledgeable about the city, and showed us some cool stuff! He was very accommodating and even went back to one particular landmark so we could get more photos. Exactly what I wanted in a tour, I would highly recommend.

A GREAT tour!!
Jan 2020 • Family
Marcus was our tour guide and he had our attention right away! This tour was much more than I expected. I’ve lived in PDX for 25 years and took visiting family on this tour. I saw and learned so many new things! Our visitors enjoyed every minute as well. You will be talking about what you saw for days. I have a whole list of new places I plan to go back and explore. Thanks Marcus for a fantastic day!!

Taryn gave us a great overview of Portland!
Nov 2019
We couldn't have had a better introduction to Portland than the one we got from Taryn or Terran Tours. She was energetic, friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive. Our son has just moved to Portland and we were visiting so the idea of a tour made sense. We were so lucky to wind up with the small group being just us! We got to see so many of the neighborhoods and had a great time on the aerial tram, at the rose garden, and the Pittock mansion. The day was a little cloudy and cold, but the warmth we felt from Taryn more than made up for it. We would absolutey recommend her tour to anyone!
