The tour exceeded my expectations! The van would hold about ten , but there were six, including the driver. The ride was very smooth. Comfortable seats and the driver provided water and snacks. I'm a fan of waterfalls. These were great. The driver seems to be very familiar with the area and shared her knowledge with us. She was just lovely! Although four of the six of us were seniors, she made the tour very accessible for us. This was the best tour we've taken over our past three weeks in Vancouver BC and Portland. The driver made it special.

I had a fantastic time on the waterfall tour with Anna as our tour guide! She was so friendly, personable, and knowledgeable about the area, the history of Portland, and its unique ecology and natural history. We didn't have a rental car, so the convenience factor of getting to the multnomah area, being transported to each waterfall by van, having snacks, drinks, and pleasant conversation on the way just can't be beat! The waterfalls themselves were absolutely amazing, I loved getting up close with several of the falls, which made for some awesome photo ops. The hikes weren't difficult at all, and it was so nice seeing all the lush greenery and flora in the area. This was a 10/10 experience and all expectations were fulfilled! I absolutely recommend the tour and I feel like it is definitely a must on your Portland to-do list!

Great tour of several amazing waterfalls. We would have skipped Latourell Falls if we did this one our own and it was a highlight of the trip. Ana was a great guide. Definitely recommend this tour.

Lovely Nature Getaway on a Hot Day!

This is a perfect tour to take on a hot and sunny day in Portland! We got out of the heat of the city and drove into the beautiful Columbia River Gorge to do a little light hiking and peep some beautiful waterfalls. Our guide, Carrie, was very personable and gave us lots of information about the history of the area as well as recommendations for places to visit and things to do during the rest of our stay. We recommend brining water shoes and maybe a towel if you're thinking about getting wet at Horsetail Falls. We'd loved to have gone in more, but we weren't fully prepared for it.
