    This tour was absolutely perfect! The Oregon coast might now be one of my favorite places on earth. It is stunning to see the transition from forest to beach. What made this an even more memorable experience was the tour guide. Adam is a great history teacher! He went above and beyond to make this day perfect. Traveling as a woman on my own I really appreciate feeling safe on a tour. I hope to be back someday. Highly recommend this tour!!!

    The tour was wonderful; we saw a number of sites in a single day, but the pacing rarely felt rushed. Our guide, Daniel, was filled with local knowledge, which he gladly shared, making the tour that much more interesting. The stop at the Draper Girl's Farm Stand was the only disappointment: a) that is the one time we felt a bit rushed; b) the clerk there treated us as if we were an imposition and an inconvenience. She had a very dour expression and was not at all friendly. Most of the people purchased their overpriced items, so there was no cause for her to be so surly. Beyond that one small hiccup, the tour was amazing and I highly recommend it.

    Highly recommend this way to see the falls! Dave was great getting us set up on the bikes, making sure we knew how to operate and what to see along the way. He gave us tips for safety on the road. The route is shared by cars, so you need to pay attention at all times. We were fine in mid-September, fewer cars on the road.
    It’s great to go at your pace and stop at each waterfall as you want to (we did some on the way out, others on the way back, depending on the crowds). Some were just look at from the road, others a small hike in. Bike locks provided so you could leave your bike without concern. Beautiful falls, incredibly scenic route. Worth going all the way to Crown Point Vista House - the views are amazing!!
    Very pleased with our e-bike experience. Great time, would do it again.

    It's a great option if you would like to check out a glimpse of some cool natural features while on the road. There are multiple stops along view points while on the road and the quaint town of Hood River had a lot of varied options for lunch when you make your stop over there. While the tour did stop in many places briefly for you to take quick pictures or buy some interesting gifts/snacks, it didn't exactly feel rushed either. The tour guide, John was an interesting, laid back chap with a wealth of knowledge of the sites we visited along with the area of Portland as well. Thank you John for being great! I would recommend it overall.

    Highlight of our time in Oregon, the coastal region is simply beautiful.
    The guide was super knowledgeable about Portland and Oregon in general, and gave us a good number of recommendations for our time there.
    Thank you so much for the lovely experience!

    This was a really excellent tour. Our tour guide was super knowledgeable and I enjoyed all the stops and spending time in Cannon Beach. If you only have one day on a trip and want to explore the Oregon coast, this is a great use of time.

    Brittany wonderfully guided us to an extraordinary set of cave experiences and views! Epic tour! Cave exploration is a unique way to bond with friends and family, and we loved it. The views atop the 400+ staircase was breathtaking.

    We were in Oregon for only 5 days but even with all the grandeur and beauty of the state our experience with your company tops the list. Our guide Mino was outstanding as a guide and even more so as a person. I will highly recommend the tour to everyone.

    I did the Forest Park Tour with my guide, Rowan, and another visitor. It was a great tour! Rowan is extremely knowledgeable about Portland and the forest.
