If you are considering a tour, Oregon Tour Company should be your first choice. If you are not considering a tour, ask yourself why not?
Peter was everything a great tour guide should be,
Safe, such an excellent driver. Knows every road, shortcut and longer scenic views
fun.. our day was filled with laughter. He's got some great stories
Push him for details..like how certain places got their names ;)
Excitment, very soon after picking us up a hawk swooped down and caught a pigeon in midair right in front of us! Think they arranged that?
The Gorge is even more beautiful in person. Peter allowed time to walk and get up close to waterfalls whenever possible, sometime we were dropped off while he hassled the parking
Other times he joined us and pointed out some of the fauna and details about it, bring a notebook! I said that several times kiddingly- the nerd in me wishes I had!
Ask Peter anything- he'll know
He has the who, what, when, where, and even the why or why not?
He offered photo tips to take better waterfall pics. My Grandson understood perfectly.
I need to schedule another tour!
It was perfect
Thank you for helping to make what I hope he will always remember

Peter was our guide and he was awesome. He has a vast knowledge of the area that exceeds just the tour we were on. This tour was great. We went on Labor Day weekend so there were a lot of people at the various sites we visited. Peter was able to maneuver our tour group perfectly into the best viewing spots. I highly recommend this tour.

It was nice to have someone else do the driving so we could relax and see the countryside. Peter had a most resonant voice and we loved hearing him tell us all about what we were seeing, besides the fact that he was very knowledgeable. We learned so much from him that we wouldn't have know had we driven ourselves. We had sufficient time at each stop to take pictures and short walks.

There was only 2 people in our group so we went in a sedan instead of a van. Pete was the one who gave us our tour. Pete was super nice and took us everywhere with a nice view along the river. He also told us a lot of interesting historical facts about the places we went to and even gave us recommendations about what to do in the city. He was super understanding about how long it took us to do a hike and to go to the gift shop. We recommend doing this tour in the morning because as we left every place it started to get crowded.
