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 the Crown Point Vista House, a stately building from 1916 that boasts some of the best views of the Columbia River Gorge. Then spend the next portion of your day trip visiting four waterfalls: Latourell Falls, Wahkeena Falls, Horsetail Falls and, the most famous, Multnomah Falls.
The second-highest year-round waterfall in the United States, iconic Multnomah Falls is fed by Larch Mountain’s underground springs. With your guide, walk to the much-photographed footbridge to see both tiers of the falls.
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 move south to 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.
Your day trip ends with the drive back to Portland, returning to the city for hotel drop-off.

This was a really great day trip, and Sarah really made it worthwhile. The region is beautiful and definately worth checking out. Hoghly recommend.
Best way to see the beautiful scenery, leaving all the driving to a professional. The many waterfalls were beautiful. Mt.Hood and Timberline Lodge are breathtaking. Great scenic photography opportunities on this tour. Suggested by the tourguide, we had the best salmon fish and chips at Full Sail Brewery.
Had an awesome trip back in October. Many of the waterfalls weren't open because of the recent wildfire, but our tour guide made up for it. Would go again.
I had a good time. Enjoyed the tour the guide and fellow travelers.
The tour was very informative and the views were spectacular. The tour bus was comfortable and the tour guide made sure we all got to enjoy everything we wanted!
