I am so glad I signed up to join this tour! It’s a great way to see and experience Portland, I have learned so much, and highly recommend this especially if you are traveling solo — great way to sightsee, have some company, and meet new people. Our tour guide, Damon, was the nicest and the best! 100% recommend.

Overall the excursion was OK. Because there were only 6 of us we picked picked up in a 7 passenger car rather than a sightseeing van. She took us to all the “must see” spots in Portland however it was sometimes difficult to see from the backseat of a car. I also had COVID concerns with all of us in an enclosed car for many hours. Fortunately we were all able to get out of the car many times and upon request the Windows were put down a few inches. Our driver was accommodating and since we only had a limited about of time it worked for us.

The guide was exceptional. He knew anything we asked. Marcus came prepared with a great tour and when we asked about a specific topic, he quickly changed his plan to accomodate us. He had great stories, too. His Mercedes van was clean and looked new. He also was covid prepared and even had water and snacks.
