Discover the Pacific Northwest’s bustling cultural hub south of Seattle (but don’t compare the two cities to any Portlander!). Your morning or afternoon tour begins with pickup from your central hotel. Settle in as you wind through Portland’s west side en route the historic Pittock Mansion. Marking the end of the extensive Wildwood Trail in Forest Park, this mansion was once home to Portland pioneer and newspaper tycoon Henry Pittock and his wife, Georgiana. Take advantage of one of the best views of the Portland area from the lofty grounds.
Then skip over to neighboring Washington Park for a visit to the International Rose Test Gardens. Soak up the scents of 7,000 varieties of roses and catch a unbeatable view of Mount Hood before descending from the hills for a tour of Portland’s historic neighborhoods. Enjoy your guide’s storied commentary as you visit Pioneer Square, a bustling food cart pod, and the famous Voodoo Doughnuts, known for its over-the-top doughnut design and snappy flavors including the beloved Bacon Maple Bar.
This 2.5-hour tour returns to your hotel just in time for lunch or happy hour!
