Modified itinerary: Visit Silver Falls State Park, which is best known for its magnificent waterfalls! See pictures of them below. People call it the “crown jewel” of the Oregon State Parks system, and once you visit, you know why. Silver Falls State Park is the kind of standout scenic treasure that puts Oregon firmly onto the national—and international—stage. Its beauty, boundless recreational opportunities and historic presence keep it there. Nestled in the foothills of Oregon’s Cascade Mountains, the sprawling 9,200 acre property is the largest state park in Oregon, and one of the most popular. While here we will explore part of the Trail of Ten Falls, a spectacular, nationally recognized hiking trail that weaves through a dense forested landscape. We will take short hikes to several of the waterfalls along this trail and you will be able to spend time at these beautiful waterfalls!
Original itinerary: Crown Point Vista House, best known of the scenic lookouts along the Historic Columbia River Highway, provides a panoramic view of the Columbia River. The Crown Point Vista House was built in 1916 and refurbished and completely remodeled in 2005, with its beautiful marble interior and brass fixtures. Latourell Falls plunges 249 feet (76 m) over a massive wall of columnar basalt, some of the best formations in the Pacific Northwest, before cascading hastily toward the Columbia River. This waterfall is usually most recognized for the large patch of bright yellow lichen adorning the cliff face to the right of the falls, and this characteristic has led many famous photographers to this captivating location.
Multnomah Falls is the second highest year-round waterfall in the United States. Nearly two million visitors a year come to see this ancient waterfall, making it Oregon’s number one public destination. Fed by underground springs from Larch Mountain, the flow over the falls varies but is highest during winter and spring. Horsetail Falls was named for its distinctive form and plunges 176 feet. The trail leads to Upper Horsetail Falls, also called Ponytail Falls. There, the trail leads behind the base of the falls. There is a great opportunity to stop and take some photos or simply enjoy the beauty of the surrounding area.

Excellent tour considering the devastating fire they had in the Columbis River Gorge! The tour guide was excellent.
wonderful tour and fantastic tour guide.
Beautiful half day tour! I would suggest taking this tour during slower days. We were given a good amount of time at each stop but the weekend crowds made it hard to really appreciate all the beautiful stops. Just had enough time to briskly get to the photo view points and bathroom. When the tour is over, we're given the option of returning to one of largest food truck pods for lunch totally recommended if you haven't been
We had very few hours to dedicate to sightseeing during our visit to Portland this summer. Could not have made a better choice.
I went on this tour with 2 girlfriends on a girls weekend. John dominic LOL was our driver/tour guide. Not only was he knowledgeable but he had an outgoing personality. he had an low key, and uplifting spirit. we had a really great time with him. He was very articulate and spoke clearly specially with all us girls joking and laughing with and over him. we would highly recommend this tour and John all the way!!!
