A great option for first-time Portland visitors, this excursion provides transportation via luxury van and allows you to avoid the hassle of driving and parking.

Snacks and drinks are included. 

What to Expect

Choose a morning or afternoon start time and meet your guide and luxury van at Director Park. Start your journey in central Portland as you drive through the city’s cultural and financial centers. Next, head to Washington Park for picturesque city views.

Stretch your legs in the sprawling park and see 7,000 different types of roses in the Rose Gardens. View the peaceful Japanese Gardens from the van on your way to South Portland where you will ride the Portland Aerial Tram.

From the tram you can enjoy sweeping views of Mount Hood, Mount St. Helens, Mount Rainer, Mount Adams, and the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI). Then head to the city's northwest neighborhoods, including Chinatown and the hip Pearl District.

Finally, spend some time at Lan Su Chinese Gardens before returning to Director Park. You can also ask your guide to drop you at NW 23rd Street, a foodie hot spot, just in time for lunch or happy hour.
