Your trip begins early in downtown Portland, where you'll embark via coach for the drive through Columbia River Gorge. Enjoy spectacular views as the sun crests the Cascade Mountains and lights up the Gorge’s protected landscape. 

As your coach travels along the river, you'll admire the natural and cultural sights, from rare plants and wildlife to geological wonders and ancient Indian rock art. Your expert guide will narrate the journey, providing historical context to the present-day surroundings.

Climb high above the valley to the Vista House at Crown Point for unparalleled views that have been enjoyed by travelers to this site since 1916. Take plenty of photos from this panoramic viewpoint before heading back down into the National Scenic Area, where you'll stop at Latourell Falls, Wahkeena Falls, and the famous Multnomah Falls. Known as the second-tallest in the US, Multnomah Falls never dries up, even in the hot summer months. So a great picture can always be taken from Benson Bridge!

Next, your trip continues to Bonneville Dam, a masterpiece of modern engineering that provided hydropower to the Gorge since the 1930s. During your stop here, learn about the challenging construction process and admire the grandeur and juxtaposition of industry combined with nature.

Your trip back to Portland tracks the trail of the famous explorers Lewis and Clark, touching on key points from their expedition over 200 years ago such as Beacon Rock, Rooster Rock, and Cape Horn. 

Your tour ends back in Portland by early afternoon.

Few attractions, poor communication and boring commentary.

We did the half day Columbia River and Multnomah Falls tour. Based on the description I was under the impression we would visit additional falls too but we only saw Multnomah Falls. Other falls may have been closed (not sure) but this was not communicated during booking or during the tour. I wouldn’t have booked had I known. There was a lot of smoke in the air which made it hard to view the gorge. Again, not the company’s fault but they didn’t give us a heads up either. The hatchery and dam were a little interesting but we were there too long. And the gorge viewing area could have been really cool but the smoke was an issue. I felt like they were more interested in getting money for the trip than informing us of potential viewing complications or missed attractions. On board commentary was interesting at times but otherwise monotone and boring. I would definitely encourage others to research other tour companies before settling on Gray Line. We should have gotten a discount and been informed that viewing would be difficult and falls would be skipped. I do not recommend.

I was in town for a short amount of time. This tour is the perfect way to see Multnomah Falls, CRG, and so many other gorgeous sites. I really enjoyed the little water falls. My host was so sweet and knowledgeable. I highly recommend to anyone either traveling solo or want someone else to take care of the planning, and you just sit back and enjoy the ride.
