Pick Up Location: Downtown Portland hotels or pre-arranged locations
We don’t just show you the highlights of downtown, we introduce you to the City of Portland. The only city tour in Portland that offers a well-balanced overview of both downtown and surrounding area history, culture, current events and a representation of cultural diversity in the state of Oregon. Travel through the various parts of the city from downtown Portland to the Pearl District to Nob Hill, local neighborhoods, and visit all the must-see attractions including the Pittock Mansion, Lan Su Chinese Garden and the International Rose Test Garden.
On our acclaimed Portland City Tour! Some of the many attractions may include:
1. Downtown Portland:
Enjoy the sites of Pioneer Square and learn about the great diversity found in Portland’s downtown area, the historical importance it has played in the state’s history and the fast-growing culture that exists in the City of Portland. Learn about the final resting place of many prominent and notable citizens of Oregon, including many governors and United State Senators and other notable burials in the City of Portland.
A French Renaissance Chateau listed on the national registry of historic places. Enjoy the spectacular views from the grounds of the Pittock Mansion. A meticulously preserved architectural landmark that symbolizes Portland’s transformation from a small lumber town into a bustling city. Home to the Pittock family and their descendants until 1958. It was severely damaged in the 1962 Columbus Day Storm, and then was nearly destroyed in the early 1960’s when plans surfaced to turn the site over to developers. Spurred by community activists to preserve the historic home, City of Portland officials bought the estate in 1964. The house opened to the public as a museum in 1965 (Please note the mansion is closed during the month of January).
Portland International Rose Test Garden:
Let the fragrance of our Rose Gardens embrace you with over 550 different varieties of Roses, and delight your senses with the lush and beautiful Washington Park, featuring some of the most amazing cascade mountain views around.
Lan Su Chinese Garden:
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.
Lunch— Our tour guide will stop for you to pick up and enjoy at vineyard (not included in price).
After lunch we start our wine tasting excursion through Oregon legandary Pinot Noir Country. The heart of these vineyards is located in the Willamette Valley on gentle hills that give way to expansive views of the vines and valley below. Join us on our Oregon Wine Tour and experience wine tasting at some of this area’s best wineries and most unique tasting rooms.
The wine region in the north Willamette valley, which was once known for fruit orchards and nurseries has transformed into one of the country’s premier cool-climate varietal producers. The unique relationship between volcanic Jory soils, elevation and protective micro climates has consistently proven ideal for vineyards, and has produced Oregon’s top Pinot Noir for decades. Enjoy the taste of a select group of Oregon most renowned local vineyards.
The wineries we may include the following:
• Erath Vineyard, Colene Clemens, Raptor Ridge, Blizzard Wines, Ardiri, David Hill Winery, Elk Cove, Montinore Estate, and Tresori.
