Full description
Ride the gondola, smell the roses at the International Rose Test Garden, and step out onto a skybridge on this 3-hour guided tour of Portland in a small group of no more than 11. Throughout the tour, you'll enjoy beautiful vistas as you drive the hills and bridges in a comfortable, climate-controlled vehicle. Your interpretive guide will give you background on the landmarks you pass and teach you the city's history as you wander the neighborhoods of central Portland.

Start your tour by traveling up the hill to the Oregon Health Sciences University, where your guide will drop you off to walk out onto the longest suspended pedestrian skybridge in North America. Afterwards, ride the Portland Aerial Tram down to the South Waterfront neighborhood, where your guide will be waiting. This does not run on Sundays.

Make a stop at the International Rose Test Garden, where you'll have 20 minutes to walk among the 550 rose varieties. Then, you'll ascend even higher into the hills to visit Pittock Mansion, which provides the best view of Portland and 5 stratovolcanoes, if the weather is clear. As you navigate the city, you'll be able to take in views of the parks, gardens, bridges, and trees of this lush city.

We had a great time. Our guide Terran was very knowledgeable tour guide and an excellent driver. He also went above and beyond picking me and my husband from Oregon city. In three hours we could see more than we would be able to see in a week if we were doing it on our own. I highly recommend this tour to the visitors of all ages.

This is the best way to see Portland. We saw more in 3 hours than we could have seen in days. And we heard stories about what we were seeing. Our mic’ed driver made it easy to hear his commentary.
