My husband and I are planning on moving to Oregon in a few years and came out for a long weekend to explore the area. We signed up for a full day winery tour and definitely got more than we bargained for. Marcus from Terran Tours was not only a fun tour guide but extremely knowledgeable about the areas we toured, the history and most importantly the wines of the region . It was a fantastic day and enabled us to narrow our search to what area we want to settle. We were lucky to get a private tour and therefore Marcus was able to be very flexible with how we wanted to structure the day! I highly recommend this tour for tourists or even residents who want to get out of the city. You are guaranteed to pick up some interesting fact that you didnt know before. Also, the wineries he chose were fantastic, we even joined one of their clubs! I look forward to going back and booking another tour with Terran Tours soon! Happy Traveling!

Marcus, our guide was a wealth of information from history to fauna and flora, geology, ecology, imports/exports, to interesting facts along the way. His knowledge of wine and growing fruit, different types of ciders, wine, beer was extensive. He connected personally with each member of our tour equally and made the information conversational rather than instructional. Marcus is a safe and very confident driver (the sound system for the tour was perfect throughout the Mercedes). Pizza and wine lunch delicious and timely.

This is a fabulous tour. We were lucky and had beautiful weather, cold but sunny. The waterfalls were magnificent and Mt Hood was spectacular . Our tour guide Paul was not happy when my friends and I spent 8 mins over our time at the Multnomah Falls so we stayed on time the rest of the day and he took us to a lake that really showed the beauty of Mt Hood. A tour you should not miss while in Portland!

oh wow! It was a fantastic tour even with some poor weather – it didn’t matter because the tour was that good. John our tour guide was interesting and funny and kept everyone entertained. I learned so much. I highly recommend this tour for people who are visiting or people like myself who have lived in the area for years and just wanted more information about it. You can’t go wrong with this tour

Taryn was great! She was very knowledgeable about the route and threw in little facts throughout the whole tour. We loved the trip and our experience in Portland. Definitely book with this company!
