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 was great. Lots of interesting Portland history tidbits, knowledge of local flora and fauna. Accommodating to our group of 6. We were given choices of activities when appropriate. Plenty of time at each stop!

Tom was very friendly and knowledgeable about the falls and the area. Picked us up at our hotel and dropped us off at a nice food truck area on the way back for a good lunch. Very positive experience.

We had an awesome time. We had Marcus all to ourselves and he was a informative and gracious host. The scenes were breathtaking and we can not wait to return to explore more!

Tour started on time. Meeting point was centrally located. Tour took us all over Portland and pointed out all the various sites as well as historical info. about the city.
