IF YOU DO NOT SELECT A SPECIFIC HOTEL!!! ... please plan on meeting us at our general pickup location ((ADDRESS: 309 SW Montgomery St., Portland, OR 97201))

This is right in front of MCCORMICK & SCHMICKS HARBORSIDE AT THE MARINA RESTAURANT in the South Waterfront Park area (near the circle roundabout).

***PARKING OPTION*** - If you're driving to the general pickup location, we recommend THE DOUGLAS GARAGE for parking as it's less than a block from McCormick & Schmick's Restaurant. Douglas Garage Parking address is: 1835 S River Dr, Portland, OR 97201.

***HOTEL PICKUP*** - If you would like to be picked up at a specific hotel, please indicate in your booking which hotel (from our list of available hotel pickups in the drop down menu) you would like to be picked up at. As long as you select a specific hotel from the list during the booking process, is it NOT necessary to email or call to confirm your hotel selection. Thank you!

***TOUR VEHICLE(S)*** - Most of our tours are run in a white Ford Transit, high roof, 12-passenger tour van. You may also be picked up in a silver & black Honda Pilot SUV or other tour vehicle which your guide will describe to you the night before your tour via text.

***PRE-TOUR GUIDE CONTACT & CONFIRMATION *** - Your tour guide will reach out to you via text (or email if no cell # is provided) the night before your tour (usually before 8:00pm PST) to confirm your pickup location, pickup time and to give you any further information related to the tour that is necessary. Please keep an eye on your phone and respond to your guide's text to confirm your pickup location and pickup time. Pickup times often start as early as 30 minutes BEFORE the tour departs. Your guide will give you any further specifics on pickup location and timing the night before the tour (or the day of the tour) if necessary. Please keep an eye on your phone for updates and respond quickly to your guide if contacted.

***WHAT TO BRING*** It's always a good idea to bring a layer or two for warmth, a good rain jacket, good walking or hiking shoes (& a hat and gloves in winter) on all tours as the climate is often variable in Oregon and our tour itineraries often vary widely in elevation and micro-climate. We provide light snacks (granola bars) and waters. We always encourage travelers to bring their own refillable water bottle (full) if they have one with them while they're traveling (ex: Nalgene, Clean Kanteen, Hydroflask, etc...) to reduce our plastic consumption and our impact on the planet. Feel free to bring more snacks if you'd like. Full day tours have a lunch stop (lunch is at guest's own expense) and 1/2 day tours do NOT have a lunch stop.

*NOTE - Our vans cannot accommodate large suitcases (but a small day pack, purse or similar is fine, as long as it can sit at your feet on the floor during the tour).

Adam was the best! I thoroughly enjoyed a guide that was born and raised in the city. He kept my attention and answered all my questions along the way. Thank you for such a wonderful experience!

May 27, 2023

Adam was awesome! He was very knowledgeable and personable. There was a small group which made it feel much more inviting, especially since I was traveling solo! Highly recommend this tour. I found places that I didn't know anything about that I'll be visiting now!

I loved all the sites we saw in Portland. So much history and so much information. It was nicely done with our wonderful tour guide , TJ.

May 4, 2023

TJ had so much knowledge of the city, it was exactly what I wanted to see and hear. We had a wonderful time and I don’t think we missed much of the city. The conversation was like talking with a friend rather than a guide. I learned a lot sbout Portland and hope to come back some day.

Feb 20, 2023

TJ, our tour guide, made us feel like we are a part of the city and shared numerous stories and detailed history of Portland. He took us to so many places that we would have never found on our own being first time visitors. Highly suggest this tour.

Dec 2, 2022

Portland is an incredibly creative liberal free, thinking environment with such beautiful buildings and public spaces. I highly recommend visiting here at least once in your life.
