Portland: Columbia Gorge Wine and Waterfalls Day Tour
- Small group
- Transportation included
- Duration: 6 hours
My sister and I loved this tour. Our guide, Taryn, was the best! She tailored the tour to take us on more hiking trails, showed us the variety of plant life in the gorge and took us to the stunning waterfalls. We saw and learned so much!! She told stories about the history of the area and kept us fascinated during the whole time we were driving from spot to spot, so the time just flew by. It was also so convenient to be picked up right from our Airbnb! Not only was it was so much fun talking to an expert who had lived in the area for so many years, it was also so practical as we saw a lot in a short space of time, and were able to pack a lot more into our short stay in Portland thanks to Terran Travels. We loved the tour so much (even despite the rain!) that we immediately booked another one with Terran Travels as soon as we came back.
Pickup was on time, but I had to go outside & find the tour vehicle. I’m not sure if the guide would have come into the lobby to find us. That is a minor point, because the guide was tremendous in every way. The tour was very nice and the relevant information imparted along the way was invaluable. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and we were given adequate time at each stop to do all the necessary things.
Chris had was extremely knowledgeable about the nature and waterfalls along the Columbian Gorge. He imparted this in a story like manner and conversed with everyone on the tour. He also knew his wines and especially about the wines in the Oregon region. The coffee and cookies were also a nice touch.
Chris was a wonderful guide! We learned much about the area while enjoying stunning waterfalls and views of the river. The wine tastings were fun also. It was nice that we had a small group. I highly recommend this excursion.
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!
