    Itinerary
    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Pass By: Pioneer Courthouse Square, 701 SW 6th Ave Broadway between Morrison and Yamhill, Portland, OR 97204-1410

    Pioneer Courthouse Square, located in the heart of Downtown Portland, is a public space hosting more than 300 programmed events each year. With more than 26,000 people visiting the Square each day, it is the single most visited site in the city. The Square’s features include the Waterfall Fountain, built of granite; sixteen columns with classical pillars topped with carved yellow roses on which crawl pink-and-green spotted bugs; and two brick amphitheaters which provide seats for events.

    Stop At: Pittock Mansion, 3229 NW Pittock Dr, Portland, OR 97210-5099

    Built in 1914, Pittock Mansion tells the story of Portland’s transformation from pioneer town to modern, industrialized city through the history and legacy of one its most influential families, the Pittocks. Saved from demolition by dedicated citizens in 1964, the Mansion and surrounding estate was purchased by the City of Portland and opened to the public as a historic house museum.

    Duration: 20 minutes

    Stop At: International Rose Test Garden, 400 SW Kingston Ave, Portland, OR 97205-5883

    One of the city’s signature landmarks, located in beautiful Washington Park, Portland’s largest official rose garden is home to more than 10,000 roses including 650+ rose varieties. From May through October, you can stroll amongst the lovely blooms, breathe in the delightful smells, and enjoy the spectacular views of downtown and Mount Hood.

    Duration: 20 minutes

    Pass By: Pearl District, 404 NW 10th Ave # LL1, Portland, OR 97209-3184

    Loading docks and cobblestone streets hint at this former warehouse district’s past, while stylish bars and gleaming lofts point toward the future. The Pearl District was formerly occupied by warehouses, light industry, and railroad classification yards and now noted for its art galleries, restaurants, upscale businesses, and high-rise residences along with lofts that were converted from warehouses.

    Pass By: Northwest (Nob Hill), Northwest 23rd Avenue and Northwest 21st Avenue NW Everett St to NW Thurman St, Portland, OR 97210

    The neighborhood surrounding stylish Northwest 23rd Avenue offers an abundance of terrific shopping and choice eats. In the Northwest neighborhood (also known as Nob Hill or the Alphabet District), century-old Victorian and Craftsman-style storefronts housing unique boutiques stand alongside national retailers, interspersed with coffee shops and on-trend restaurants and bars. In short, it’s a shopper’s paradise.

    Stop At: Lan Su Chinese Garden, 239 NW Everett St, Portland, OR 97209-3957

    Lan Su Chinese Garden is one of Portland's greatest treasures. Built by Chinese artisans from our sister city Suzhou (home of China's famous ancient gardens), it's among the most authentic Chinese gardens outside of China. Much more than just a beautiful garden, Lan Su is a creative wonder—a powerfully inspiring experience based on a 2,000-year-old Chinese tradition that melds art, architecture, design and nature in perfect harmony.

    Once inside the garden's walls, you'll feel as if you've traveled through time to another era in a faraway world. Lan Su is a window into Chinese culture, history and way of thinking. Ever changing, Lan Su always has something new to offer—by the minute, by the hour, and with the seasons. Enter the wonderland.

    Duration: 20 minutes

      Thank you Gunner for a marvellous tour. Even though the other guests cancelled, Gunner decided to take me around beautiful Portland. He took me to the chinese gardens and Pitlock mansion as both were on the tour. Then on hearing that we are coming to live here for six months, Gunner drove me around to give me a feel for the city. This was so worthwhile, especially as the rain was quite heavy! He gave me lots of information and was so knowledgeable about Portland. Thank you. And how beautiful is the mansion looking for Christmas?

      We certainly enjoyed this city tour! The van was very comfortable, and the timing between exiting for excursions to the Chinese Garden and Pittock Mansion was perfect. So much beauty to take in, and Phil did an excellent job pointing out things we might have missed! Great job, Phil!

      This was our first time in Portland so we wanted to make the best use of our time and take in as much as possible. We thought a tour might give us that. I'm sure glad we did! Our tour guide was awesome. He was so knowledgeable about the city and its history and made the tour fun. I felt the tour itself covered a good amount. My favorite was Pittock Mansion and being able to see the views of the city from up high. I learned tid bits about the city that I probably never would have otherwise. I highly recommend this tour to anyone in the area!

      I’ve never been to Portland before and this was a great way to see the city. Also went to the Rose Garden and Chinese gardens and mansion. Would never have seen these attractions on my own. Our tour guide, Heather, was very knowledgeable.

He took us to all the highlights of the City from the Pittock Mansion in the West Hills then down to the Chinese Gardens in Old Town. We rode the Tram from OHSU down to the Waterfront..Well worth taking this tour, being originally from Portland, I even learned a few things I didn't know about this Great City !

      Carrie did an excellent job teaching us about Portland -- past and present. Carrie is knowledgeable, and obviously loves the city. We visited its most iconic spots -- the enormous Portlandia sculpture, and the Pittock Mansion -- a gorgeous home built by a newspaper editor who started out with nothing, and which boasted stunning views of the city and mountains. We had plenty of time to tour the mansion and its lovely grounds -- a magnificent spot to take pictures. We spent time at the International Portland Rose Garden, where the roses were just beginning to bloom. So fragrant and lovely. We drove through Washington Park, a lush green space. We went past the famed Voodo Doughnut store, and the impressive Powell's City of Books -- a must see for visitors to Portland! We had time to appreciate the beauty and history of the city, finishing up with a visit to the serene Lan Su Chinese Garden. This is a real oasis in a busy city, where we had the chance to relax and enjoy the tranquility offered by the ponds and flowers and waterfalls. There were plenty of rest stops and opportunities to stretch our legs and visit the attractions offered on this tour. We highly recommend this Best of Portland City Tour.

      I booked the tour online the night before, it was simple to do. Our guide, Isaac called to let us know when he would pick us up at the hotel. The tour was fun, Isaac provided lots of relevant information along the way and was able to answer any questions asked. He was extremely personable and outgoing and provided a fun experience. I would definitely recommend trying to get him as your guide.

      This tour was a great way to spend the afternoon seeing Portland. Toured the Chinese gardens, the mansion on top of the hill overlooking the city, and drove through the rose garden. The roses were not in bloom, so there wasn't much to see there. The tour guide was great!

      This tour was amazing. Ron was great! We got a really good introduction to Portland which was more than we expected. He modified it a bit to included his personal favorites. In the end we were in awe of what we saw and my 15 yr old daughter loved the city, its quirkiness and its giant bookstore!

      My daughter and I learned a lot about the city. She is interested in moving here at some point so it was very informative. We enjoyed being able to ride the bus since it was a very hot day. We were able to see a lot of the key sites and appreciated the enthusiasm and knowledge of our tour director.
