My wife and I could not be more pleased with the overall tour. From the communication to the comfort of the transportation, to Evan, our excellent tour guide with many hidden talents.

Full of information and great scenery. The weather could not have been more perfect which provided for unobstructed views.

Overall, we highly recommend Wildwood Adventures and ask for Evan.

Zeke went above and beyond. Was lenient with those running a tiny bit late and followed a good schedule. VERY informative and not just on the places we saw but anything else you could have needed to know about. Very personable, caring and down to earth. We saw very nice sights, so worth it!!!

Ahh, the Falls and Mt. Hood!
Aug 2021
The Mt. Hood and Columbia River Gorge experience was a scenic and adventurous day trip. It was so great viewing Oregon’s natural wonders and meeting new people as well! We were so happy the organizers decided to reverse the order of the trip so we visited the waterfalls later in the day when the heat was unbearable. Our tour guide, Zeke, was friendly and well learned on Oregon’s history and culture. He energized the long day trip and accommodated all participants’ needs. My partner and I are excited to return and see the falls and mountain in the future!

Quality time Portland

Thank you for great day!
Our tour guide Simone was full of knowledge about all things Portland, nature, waterfalls, Timberline Lodge. The van was very comfortable and clean. The tour stops were well planned and we all had a fun time.
Great sights and photo opportunities. I would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to see Mt Hood.

Falls AND Mt. Hood combo tour is worth it!
Jul 2021
This was a delightful trip and so glad we did both the falls AND Mt. Hood. Our travel van followed the Columbia River beginning in Troutville and had great stops along the way at Vista House and several waterfalls in the area. Our Driver/Guide was SAM and she was very personable and offer great information about the area and if she didn't know the answer to a question, she'd check in with Wildwood staff and get an answer by the next stop. Lunch was on our own in Hood River, OR - lots of little coffee shops, diners and brewpubs. On the afternoon leg of the trip we stopped at a farmer stand if folks wanted to purchase fresh cider, jams, or fruit. Additionally, the Draper Girl market stop offered the chance to feed goats and a great view of Mt. Hood from the parking lot. Plenty of time was allocated to explore Timberline Lodge (if you have a National Parks passport get a stamp from the front desk of the hotel) before returning to Portland. Sam was attentive to the needs of her passengers and willingly took photos when asked. We'd happily book again with Wildwood!

Scenery, Day and Guides were “Gorge-ous!”
We couldn’t have asked for a better day with guides Malia and Craig! The weather cooperated, giving us breathtaking views of Mounts Hood, St. Helen’s, Jefferson and Adams. Malia and Craig shared from their wealth of knowledge and stories about the beautiful Columbia River Gorge area with its numerous lovely falls. Their passion for this beautiful corner of Oregon made it even easier for us to fall in love with the Pacific Northwest. We enjoyed our ride up Mt. Hood and loved walking in the snow and meeting Heidi, the Saint Bernard mascot of Timberline Lodge. Malia and Craig easily fielded any questions that arose and interacted with the guests in a manner that made us feel like family. The group was small and the van very clean and comfortable. We highly recommend this trip and wouldn’t hesitate to book a future experience with Wildwood Adventures.
