Enjoy a full-day tour to discover the beautiful landscapes of the wine-growing regions near Portland. After pickup at your accommodation, travel through the verdant landscape of Willamette Valley, known for its hazelnuts, berries, Christmas trees, and Pinot Noir wine. Continue to the foothills of the western Cascades and ascend to the treeline on Mount Hood, the highest peak in Oregon. Spend an hour at the historic Timberline Lodge, built by local artisans during the Great Depression. Explore the interpretive displays, go hiking, or play in the snow, even in summer.  Afterward, drive to Hood River Valley to arrive at the first winery on the tour. Eat a farm-to-table lunch while enjoying a wine tasting at a boutique vineyard with a view of Mount Hood. Learn about wine production in the region and visit 1 other winery in the Columbia Gorge or Columbia Valley areas.  Travel through the Columbia Gorge and admire the towering basalt cliffs, before stopping at Multnomah Falls.

Wonderful trip - and Marcus was one of the best guides we have had on any tour. He set the tone well in introducing our other fellow day trippers, was Incredibly knowledgeable without talking non stop, had a great sense of humor, and he clearly knows the right spots to visit. As for the 2 wineries? Small, boutique and great tastings along with a lovely charcuterie lunch, and as Marcus has worked at a winery in another ‘past life’(!) he added to that experience too. Perfect day, as was the weather although that was outside of Marcus’ skill set!! Thankyou!

Marcus, our guide was a wealth of information from history to fauna and flora, geology, ecology, imports/exports, to interesting facts along the way. His knowledge of wine and growing fruit, different types of ciders, wine, beer was extensive. He connected personally with each member of our tour equally and made the information conversational rather than instructional. Marcus is a safe and very confident driver (the sound system for the tour was perfect throughout the Mercedes). Pizza and wine lunch delicious and timely.

My husband and I are planning on moving to Oregon in a few years and came out for a long weekend to explore the area. We signed up for a full day winery tour and definitely got more than we bargained for. Marcus from Terran Tours was not only a fun tour guide but extremely knowledgeable about the areas we toured, the history and most importantly the wines of the region . It was a fantastic day and enabled us to narrow our search to what area we want to settle. We were lucky to get a private tour and therefore Marcus was able to be very flexible with how we wanted to structure the day! I highly recommend this tour for tourists or even residents who want to get out of the city. You are guaranteed to pick up some interesting fact that you didnt know before. Also, the wineries he chose were fantastic, we even joined one of their clubs! I look forward to going back and booking another tour with Terran Tours soon! Happy Traveling!
