General Tour Pick-Up Information

The general tour pick up and drop off location will be in Director Park in downtown Portland, at the corner of SW Taylor and SW 9th across the street from Starbucks. This location is easily accessible via the public transit system (MAX line, street car and bus) and is also within walking distance of most downtown hotels. If you are arriving by car, there is a convenient public parking garage near Director Park called SmartPark Garage. Please plan to meet your guide for the Director Park pick up 5 minutes before the tour start time.

Please select your hotel from the drop down list when making your reservation, and we will contact you the day before the tour to confirm pick up timing.

Our Tour Vehicles

Our tour vehicle fleet includes late model Mercedes Sprinters and Ford Transit passenger wagons. All of our wagons have best in class interior roof heights, as well as panoramic windows to allow for best visibility during the tour. We’ve also added an extra running board step on every wagon for extra comfort and safety getting in and out of the cabin. We consider our vans part of our tour group family and each van has her own name. Our very first van was named Lucy, and she was followed by Fiona and Molly, and then came Zoe, Dolores and Penny. Finally, the most recent additions to our little family were Barbara and Trudy. Ask your guide which van has the pleasure of taking you on your tour!

Our fleet also includes a late model Cadillac Escalade that is typically set aside for smaller private tour groups. Her name is Nora and she loves exploring just as much as her bigger sister vans!
