It worked out great! Keenan was a wonderful driver/guide. Most of the waterfalls he told us where to get the best views and waited for us. Multnomah Falls we got off and hiked and we’re able to take the “every 20 minute shuttle” back to the parking lot. I’ll never drive myself again. Great way to avoid all of the traffic. Highly recommend.

So much easier than getting permits and parking passes! Tour guide added stops and told facts we would’ve never have known if we were on our own. Worth every penny!

Definitely the way to see the falls, since you can’t drive in. There is a schedule of pick up and off times. Would highly recommend!!!

It was absolutely worth it! It was convenient that we didn’t have to worry about parking and the staff are lovely to visit with.

This is an amazing tour. Worth to spend a half day with. The driver doubles as a tour guide is very experienced.
