Receive a morning pickup from your Portland hotel, after which you’ll transfer east of town to explore the wealth of attractions along the Columbia River Gorge, one of Oregon’s most scenic landscapes.  Start the day by touring some of the many waterfalls that flow into the Columbia below. You’ll get to gaze up in wonder at Multnomah Falls, the second-highest, year-round, waterfall in the United States, and check out other scenic cascades like Bridge Veil Falls, Wahkeena Falls, Horse Tail Falls, Latourell Falls, and Crown Vista House Point.

Continue your Gorge exploration by heading further east to Hood River. This scenic city is known for the collection of windsurfers that populate the gusty river crossing near town. You’ll learn from your guide about the how the dramatic landscape near Hood River was formed, and check out the great views of Mount Adams and Mount Hood off in the distance. Take a break for lunch at one of several eateries in town (own expense) and make sure to pop in some of the local boutiques to look for souvenirs.

Following lunch, you’ll make visits to two local wineries to sample some of Oregon’s high-quality vintages. Depending on the day you may visit Hood Crest Vineyard, Pheasant Valley, Mt. Hood Winery, Wy’East Vineyards, Marchesi Vineyards, Cathedral Ridge, or Spring House Cellars. No matter where you stop you’ll enjoy an included tasting session. At the end of your tasting sessions return to Portland where you’ll be dropped off at your hotel.
Itinerary
Stop At:  
Vista House
Perched atop one of the most panoramic overlooks in the Columbia River Gorge, Vista House provides the most majestic view of the Gorge. Often referred to as “The Crown Jewel of the Columbia River Gorge,” Vista House was built between 1916 and 1918 as a memorial to Oregon pioneers, a scenic viewpoint, and a comfort station for those traveling on the newly constructed Historic Columbia River Highway. The Vista House and the view it offers are sure to amaze and inspire you.
Duration: 15 minutes
Admission Ticket Free
Stop At:  
Latourell Falls
This dazzling waterfall plunges 249 feet (76 m) over a massive wall of basalt and then rushes through the forest into the Columbia River. The falling water of Latourell is framed by some of the most perfect columnar basalt formations in the Pacific Northwest that are adorned with a large florescent patch of yellow lichen and shrouded in brilliant green flora. We’ll venture down to the punch-bowl pool below the falls, where you’ll hear the tremendous rush of water and feel the cool mist that it creates. You’ll easily realize why this special place is one of the most photographed waterfalls in Oregon.
Duration: 20 minutes
Admission Ticket Free
Stop At:  
Multnomah Falls
Fed by underground streams that originate miles above on Larch Mountain, this ancient 620 foot (189 m) waterfall is divided into two sections; the upper falls plummets an impressive 542 feet into a pool and again drops 69 feet to form a creek that runs into the Columbia River. Multnomah Falls is the second highest year-round waterfall in the United States and the highest in Oregon, and is Oregon’s number one natural attraction, drawing over 2.5 million visitors a year from around the world. At the base of the waterfall sits the Historic Multnomah Falls Lodge, a full-service day lodge complete with restaurant, gift shop, snack and espresso bar and interpretative center.

Wonderful all day (9 hour) small group tour with excellent guide. Lots of information, and no fuss access to waterfalls, scenic lookouts and two nice wineries. Lunch on our own, but multiple recommendations so we got to choose what we liked best.

Absolutely wonderful day, just the two of us with our very nice guide Kerry. She took us on a slow ride through the forest to see waterfalls, then added in a trip further up the gorge to see wild flowers, before taking us to two very good wineries. The first, Viento, was excellent. Kerry made this feel like a private tour, helped us understand this area of Oregon much better, and gave us a great day out. Thanks!

This was a great tour. Our guide Marcus was very knowledgeable about the geography of the area. We even went to an extra waterfall that wasn't on the official itinerary. The wineries were all very welcoming, and the wines were good also. We got lucky, and had a small group 5 including us. The only negative was that this was the time when there were forest fires in British Columbia, and the smoke was drifting south. This really affected the views of the valley, but this was no reflection on the tour. I feel like we got a lot of tour for the money.
