With your 2-day trolley pass, hop on and off at any of the route’s 11 locations. (Please see Itinerary below for a list of stops.) Take your time soaking up the scents and catching magnificent views at the International Rose Test Garden, wander through the towering shelves at Powell’s Books, or get interactive at the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry.

Your ticket purchase comes with a feel-good bonus—a portion of all ticket sales goes to breast cancer awareness and research.

Columbia River Gorge TourYour trolley pass includes an enchanting trip through the Columbia River Gorge, where basalt cliffs flank the mighty river, revealing the ice-age divide of the Cascade Mountains. Take this extra-city trip anytime within the window of your two-day tour. From downtown Portland, your trolley travels along the Historic Columbia River Highway. Wind through verdant forests as your expert guide narrates the journey, providing historical context to the present-day surroundings. 

Visit Crown Point Vista House for an unparalleled view of the Columbia River before descending into the Columbia River National Scenic Area for some waterfall sighting. First view Latourell Falls, unique among the falls for its straight plunge over a basalt overhang. Then pass Wahkeena Falls en route to the magnificent Multnomah Falls. This awe-inspiring cascade of water plummets 611 feet, making it the second-highest waterfall in the US. Join fellow admirers on the Benson Bridge—and make sure to take a souvenir picture. Continue on to Oneonta Gorge, Horsetail Falls, and Bonneville Dam, where you may catch a glimpse of Pacific salmon swimming up the fish ladder (depending on the season).

Your return trip to Portland traces the trail of the Lewis and Clark Expedition, passing landmarks of their epic journey including Beacon Rock, Cape Horn and Rooster Rock.

Brian our guide and The Falls

Brian was very informative without overkill. Well worth the tour the falls, Bonneville etc. it was nice of him to make an extra stop at the end of the tour to Latieril
Columbia River Tour Great! Trolley Not So Much

The Columbia River Gorge Tour was was great. Sites and tour bus guide super friendly and knowledgeable. The issue with the Trolley is it comes only once an hour even though it was a holiday weekend only on Saturday it was every 40 min. So when you get off the trolley you will have an issue getting back on because a lot of the people do not get off. Then if it is packed you are now looking at having spent two hours at one location hoping for a spot on the next one keeping in mind the trolley ends at 5. So you can’t get off to see all the sites on the trolley with the way it operates if you wanted to do that.

The trolley ran late almost the entire day and they only came every hour. It was very hard to see much when you had to wait so long in-between trolleys. Other than that, the driver was knowledge, friendly, and helpful.

This was our first time to Portland and with only a few days the was the BEST money spent! We to the Gorge bus tour one day caught the trolley the same afternoon. This helped us plan our next day stops from the trolley! Would definitely use this option on a return visit.

Columbia River Gorge tour was excellent! The Trolley was good, but really didn't allow enough time to see everything. It should definitely run later than 4:00 during the summer. I would recommend riding the Trolley from start to finish without getting off. You need to spend several hours at some stops in order to see everything.

Covered a whole lot of the area in a relatively short time. The driver was very knowledgeable and very interesting with the on board commentary. The Trolley sightseeing should be mandatory and there is so much value that we sat on the trolley for one complete circuit before we decided what to do. The local knowledge added to the excitement of the tour.
