    On this full-day tour, you'll see the best of the Portland area including downtown's Pioneer Square, the famous food carts, eclectic neighborhoods and the beautiful waterfalls of Columbia Gorge National Scenic Area. Along the way, learn about Portland's interesting history and modern-day culture from your guide. You'll be picked up from your Portland hotel in the morning and driven through downtown Portland to see sites such as Pioneer Courthouse Square, affectionately known as Portland's 'Living Room,' while learning about the city's history and modern-day culture from your guide.

You'll see remnants of these geological forces as you explore the area and get up close to sites such as Bridal Veil Falls, Horse Tail Falls and Bonneville Dam. You can also walk up to the bridge that stands beneath Multnomah Falls.
