Marcus, our guide was a wealth of information from history to fauna and flora, geology, ecology, imports/exports, to interesting facts along the way. His knowledge of wine and growing fruit, different types of ciders, wine, beer was extensive. He connected personally with each member of our tour equally and made the information conversational rather than instructional. Marcus is a safe and very confident driver (the sound system for the tour was perfect throughout the Mercedes). Pizza and wine lunch delicious and timely.

Clay was an excellent tour guide, and more importantly an even better pilot. It was a beautiful outing. Absolutely recommend, and will book again when back in Portland.

Everything went as advertised. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and pleasant. I would recommend this tour without reservation.

We almost didn't make it b/c we were running late, but we're so glad we did! It was a memorable experience.

We saw much more than I could have dreamed of. Highly recommend!
