Our tour guide was great and we didn’t feel rushed. Having a local lead and share the Portland area history only added to the tour! Also does not including a lot of hiking so would work for almost all.

Waterfalls, wonderful waterfalls

We had PERFECT weather and a wonderful guide. The waterfalls were gorgeous and the hikes were very short and on the easy side. If we had done this on our own we definitely would have missed out on the wonderful commentary and interesting insights. We didn’t feel rushed at all and had plenty of time to enjoy each waterfall and to take ample pictures.

One of the most memorable adventures during our stay in Oregon! Our guide was very knowledgeable and was able to provide so much detail of the surrounding area and history of the falls. My family had an amazing time! Would highly recommend.

Seeing the waterfalls so close with little details pointed out along the hikes made it special: banana slugs, fish, plants, berries and trees. There were hardly any crowds on trails so tour felt personal. Tour guide was kind and informative on the trails and on Portland as a whole. We learned a lot about the city and received many good restaurant recommendations! Hikes were short and not too difficult. Views were great along drive.
