Our guide was super friendly, talkative and experienced. He led the tour well without being overbearing. Gave good history of the falls and the riverfront. This was a fantastic activity to do with our friends. We'd never been to Portland, but highly recommend this activity.

My daughter and I were visiting from the Midwest and were able to book this tour, even though it was late in the season. It was great! Thank-you to Archie, our guide, for taking us out on a rainy day and showing us the sites.
