From Portland: Columbia Gorge Waterfalls Tour

1. From Portland: Columbia Gorge Waterfalls Tour

Discover the scenic beauty of the Columbia River Gorge on a small group tour with an expert guide in a luxury passenger van. Explore Columbia River National Scenic Area stopping at several picturesque waterfalls typical of the beauty of the Pacific Northwest. Depart from downtown Portland and drive towards Troutdale, known as the Gateway to the Gorge. Enjoy the journey along the Historic Columbia River Highway, the first planned scenic roadway in the United States. Arrive at Crown Point Vista House, an overlook that sits high above the Columbia River. From there, continue along the historic highway deep into the Columbia River National Scenic Area. Arrive at the first waterfall of the day, the dramatic Latourell Falls, which plunges 249 feet over a massive wall of columnar basalt.  Proceed next to the grand Multnomah Falls, which plummets to the ground from 620 feet in two major steps. Explore the Multnomah Falls Historic Lodge and stand on the easily accessible viewing platform that offers a full view of the Benson Bridge and cascading falls beyond. Next, visit the Bonneville Fish Hatchery and take a short walking tour of an impressive hatchery and sturgeon viewing center. You will also meet the local celebrity: “Herman” the sturgeon. Afterward, relax on the journey back to Portland via the Columbia River scenic route.

I went the 2nd weekend of August 2020. Several parts of the tour closed because of Covid. I was notified beforehand by our tour guide that it was a modified tour. I had an amazing time, tour guide was great. I can only imagine how much more amazing the full tour would have been, I would recommend it and I would do the full tour if ever in OR again.

Excellent tour & tour experience--one of the best I've taken. Although the places we went had no entry fee, the stories related to the sites (insight into the areas) & surrounding areas are well worth the cost of the tour. Enjoyed the short walk to the falls & the fact that we were able to get so close to the falls without getting all wet.

It was the perfect tour. They picked us up at the hotel and took us to see the sites and gave lots of details! I just sat back and relaxed and saw the sights and snapped a few photos! Then they drove us back to the hotel.

Adam was my tour guide and he was absolutely amazing! His stories about the sites were incredible and really added to the experience. Would definitely recommend!

Highly recommend this tour. Well worth the low price!
