As you relax in your tour vehicle, enjoy the natural beauty while knowing it's just a taste of what's to come, starting with your first stop at Multnomah Falls, the most famous waterfall in Oregon. The second-highest year-round waterfall in the United States, iconic Multnomah Falls is fed by Larch Mountain’s underground springs.
Continue east along the highway to Hood River, a quaint valley town located at the confluence of the Columbia and Hood rivers on the Columbia River Gorge. Listen as your guide talks about the town’s environmental and cultural history, and hear about the kiteboarders and windsurfers who skim across the waters of the gorge, one of the county's top stops for these two wind sports.
When you arrive in town, you have free time for lunch on your own. Pick one of the many restaurants to grab a bite, and then peruse the shops and wine-tasting rooms, if you wish (own expense).
Back with your guide, return to your tour vehicle and visit Rowena Crest, a farm stand (seasonally), Trillium Lake (seasonally), and Timberline Lodge, positioned at an elevation of 11,249 feet (3,429 meters) on Mt Hood, Oregon’s tallest peak. Hop out to tour the lodge or take a short walk around the lodge to enjoy its mountain scenery.

Guide was very personable. Fun. Informative, an encyclopedia of knowledge. Learned lots. You can to he really likes his job, and showing the area to you. Highly recommend
John was a GREAT guide! The stops he made were all very worthwhile. Amazing, awesome scenery! Time at the stops was limited, but allowed us to see more.
Very Nice Trip. Small town for lunch was Ok, but not much time to walk around town. I think will be nicer to stop for lunch at Timberline Lodge.
I was slightly worried that I was going to be participating on my own but Evan made it so east and comfortable. I had such an amazing day and the group we nice and personal. Well worth the money!
We would highly recommend the Mt. Hood/Multnomah Falls tour! Our tour guide (Eddie) was absolutely fantastic. Friendly, funny, knowledgable and very flexible. He crafted our tour to the interests of the folks in the van and made it a great day for everyone. The attractions were all spectacular and made even better by the extra color and stories Eddie provided. We actually had an engine issue (totally random event) with the van at the end of the tour and even that couldn't spoil the day. Both Eddie and the company handled the challenging situation with grace and care for our needs. Highly recommended trip for anyone who wants to spend a fantastic day exploring the Columbia River Gorge area!!! A+++
