What people are saying about Oregon

Wonderful trip - and Marcus was one of the best guides we have had on any tour. He set the tone well in introducing our other fellow day trippers, was Incredibly knowledgeable without talking non stop, had a great sense of humor, and he clearly knows the right spots to visit. As for the 2 wineries? Small, boutique and great tastings along with a lovely charcuterie lunch, and as Marcus has worked at a winery in another ‘past life’(!) he added to that experience too. Perfect day, as was the weather although that was outside of Marcus’ skill set!! Thankyou!

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.

If you are debating to take this tour versus any other tour in Oregon , I hope you take My advice and book this specific tour with Terran Travels.

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