I took this afternoon waterfall excursion as I had time in my schedule. It was very convenient starting at 2 PM. The tour guide, Mel, was excellent. we rode in a small van, our group was just 10 people, and she commentated the trip thoroughly. We stopped at various locations and waterfalls throughout the Columbia Gorge area. At each stop you could take pictures, hike to get a better view of the waterfall, or just relax and enjoy the view.

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!

We were in Portland for a few days back in May and were considering renting a car but booked this instead and it was worth it! We did the 8:30am slot so we skipped all the crowds at stops. Perfect amount of time at each stop, our guide was great at explaining the history of the place and recommended areas to check out in Oregon for future trips. Everyone was wearing masks, felt safe. Had a really good time!

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.

Such an informative and beautiful tour! Our guide, Anna was very knowledgeable, friendly and had a great personality. She made the trip wholesome by being enthusiastic, gave us lots of recommendations on places to eat & captured great photos to make our hike memorable. Definitely recommend having her as a guide.

This was Great!! Carrie was an awesome tour guide, super knowledgeable and friendly. We were ahead of schedule and she actually managed to slip in an extra visit to one more waterfall as a treat! The weather was cold but just bundle up in layers and a scarf and gloves I would recommend. The leaves were just turning orange and Fall came late the locals had said. We went Nov. 13, and it was beginning autumn they said! Very crisp, fall air. We were very happy with the tour! Carrie also had snacks and water for us throughout the trip which was so nice. Highly recommend! The waterfalls were gorgeous!

If you are in the Portland area, I highly suggest you take part of your trip and book this tour! Worth EVERY penny and will give you an experience you will never forget. Not only are you able to have up close access to the waterfalls, you also have a guide driving you to each one, handling the parking, and informing you the best paths to take to see the waterfalls. It completely eliminates having to find each waterfall on your own, find parking, and find your way. All the falls we visited can be seen from the road, so a great activity for anyone of any age or activity level. We had Eddy as our guide, who I need to give a shout-out too, because he was AMAZING! My friend and I were labeled as the adventure seekers in our group of 10, because we were not afraid to get in the water, hike the paths, and get as close to the falls as we could! When we were punctual with time, our guide even added in an extra stop instead of just ending our trip early!
Again, I can not express enough that everyone needs to experience this incredible, breathtaking opportunity and escape the city vibes for part of your stay! I promise, you won't regret it!
And my tip- our waterproof, hiking sandals (chacos or tevas) were the best investment we made for this trip!

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.

What an amazing tour! I highly recommend this tour for anyone that’s interested in seeing Oregon’s natural beauty. It was the highlight of my trip to Portland! This tour is especially great if you have a limited amount of time, as it is only half day. Sarah was a wonderful tour guide! All around only positive things to say
