Did the day tour of Willamette Valley - just 4 of us - my best friend from Highland Park IL and his wife joined us. Wives aren't really cyclists while my friend and I are avid. We did the hybrid bike thing up the valley and stopped at 2 wineries. Our guide, Sam, was first rate. Friendly, informative and helpful. We pedaled at a leisurely pace - it was a little hilly but not too challenging. if you haven't been on a bike in a while it may seem more difficult.

We bought a bag lunch at a small locally owned sandwich shop in Newberg that Sam kept in the van for us until we got to the wineries.

The wineries we stopped at were great (Four Graces and Arborbrook) - although I guess i expected cellar tours (the wineries we stopped at did not have cellars - and we had to pay for our tastings which wasn't included in Pedal Tours price (only $10/person and those were waived when we bought some wine anyway - the $10 is well worth it since you taste 5 - 6 wines). Sam picked some good wineries for us to visit - not the giant congolemerate ones rather the locally owned. The hosts (often the owners themselves) were friendly, informative and helpful at the wineries.

All in all well worth it.

Noah was our guide for the 3 hour downtown tour and he was fabulous. He told the story of Portland and its urban renewal - really interesting. Easy ride for our family with teenagers and we got to stop off at Powell books for a 20 minute break. We hit all the major downtown sites and went over the bridge. This is a must-do tour if you are visiting Portland for a short time.

This was my first day in Portland and what a great way to see the city. Noah was very knowledgable about the history and culture of Portland and we not only learned a lot but also were able to explore Portland like the locals - on a bike. We stopped at many of Portland's landmarks and even went over two of the beautiful bridges. The bikes were great and this company also does wine and beer tours, tours of the Columbia River and more. I would highly recommend them as a great way to see the area.

Our guide Noah was great as was everyone in the shop. The Downtown tour was a great introduction to Portland. The staff was very helpful with great reccommendations of other things to do and see in town

A group of us took this tour and we loved it! Amazing views of the Columbia River Gorge and our tour guide, Sam was knowledgeable & friendly. We enjoyed the waterfalls and hiking along with this bike tour.

I will say that there are hills on this bike ride -- if you are not a regular biker it may get your heart racing but it will be worth it.

A great experience and we highly recommend it!
