    My wife and I enjoyed our day trip to Mt. St. Helens . Our guide was personable and well informed, the vehicle comfortable and our snacks / lunch was delightful. To top it off the views of the volcano and visitor center were quite amazing.

    We did the Waterfalls and Wine Tour and had the best experience of our lives. We were picked up promptly from the downtown region. Both east (Convention Center area) and west (Pioneer square area) sides of Portland downtown region was covered- not offered by other tour companies. Bri was the best guide ever! She was a local and answered all our questions very well. She payed attention to each and every passenger on the (very full) bus and managed the tour patiently with full enthusiasm. The route was planned out perfectly. The scenic river byway with beautiful views, then a couple of beautiful falls and finally the wine country for some wine tasting. Even on a dull windy/cloudy/rainy day (that always happen when we visit the area !!!), this tour did not disappoint. The 2 wine tasting locations were chosen carefully, so that we had a variety of experience. Hors d'oeuvre were served by Bri at the first location that paired well with the wine. The day ended well. Thank you, Jake, for offering us this complimentary tour. Jake took our complaints from a previous tour very seriously and offered this tour- and indeed we got a high quality experience, something this company stands for. A big thank you to Jeff for answering all our email questions and providing us with a helpful itinerary for a coastal trip that we did on our own. We look forward to doing a tour with them again and after two trips with them, I will highly recommend their tours.

    Both tours we went on were incredible! If you choose to book a tour, please request Emily or Marty because they were awesome! They made our trip so nice and we had a wonderful time talking to them. They really go out of the way to make sure you have a great tour.""We had a very enjoyable and educational afternoon sampling wines at several Woodinville wineries. Our guide, Barbara, was warm, friendly, and extremely knowledgeable about the art and science of wine-making. Each of the wineries (Brian Carter, Celaeno, and Patterson) provided a different experience, and different flights to sample - a delightful evening that we wouldn't hesitate to repeat.Pickup was at the Willows Lodge, and a pleasant hors d'oevres tray was provided at the 2nd winery.

    Our tour guide Rachel was friendly and knowledgeable about the area we were visiting. There were 7 of us on the trip and the bus was comfortable to travel in. The food provided on the trip was healthy and tasty. It was clear when we arrived so we went hiking first and had a good walk before the weather closed in, managing to see mountain goats and a bear. We went down to another spot for lunch and then headed for a walk in the old trees. There were plenty of photo ops and the views were spectacular. The trip is well worth the money for the small group experience.

    I went on three full day tours in a row: Mt St Helens, Mt Rainer, and Olympic National Park. Great hikes, great food, great company, and great guides. I love the small group format, and the gourmet lunches were yummy and beautifully presented. The guides, Shawna, Rachel and Natasha, are all naturalists and incredibly knowledgeable. Each went out of her way to take us to gorgeous spots that were off the beaten track. I can't believe how much we were able to do and see in just three days. And I got some amazing shots! I'm exhausted but very happy! Many thanks to each of you.

    A friend and I took the Wilamette Valley tour. It was a girls' weekend before a convention we both attended. Another couple joined us for the tour. Stephanie, our tour guide, found out a little about each of us and targeted the discussion and of the wines and the vineyards to our level of knowledge (which wasn't much).The scenery once we got past the strip malls outside the city was beautiful, and we were fortunate enough to have a perfectly sunny and comfortable day. Three wineries and lunch were included in the price of the tour, all of which were very different and delightful experiences.Stephanie's knowledge of the area, wine making, growing, etc, was clearly a passion of hers, and it was contagious. This seemed to be a very professionally run group, and all 4 of us thoroughly enjoyed the day. I plan to return to Portland next year, and this time I won't miss the Evergreen Escape to the Columbia Gorge!

    We had previously used Evergreen Escapes in Seattle, so were very happy to trust our 4 days in Portland to their expertise. We did the half day tour of Portland, ending at Powells Bookshop. If anything, I was slightly frustrated at not being able to go in the mansion- we just admired it, the gardens and the view, but time was short.The next day, Daniel took us to Mount St Helens. We started at the Ape Cave and made our way to the Johnston Ridge Observatory, with various stops and walks on the way. It was great, apart from the weather. We had difficulty in seeing the mountain top,(although we had a fantastic view on the flight home!)The next two days, Kieron took us on private tours. The first was the Columbia River Gorge, with waterfalls, lunch in Hood River, and a winery and then we went up to Timberline Lodge. Kieron really enthused about this, and we could see why. We went round the Lodge and we walked a bit.Our other tour was the Oregon Coast. He was so knowledgeable about the industries and the sights. We had a very busy day, including the Maritime Museum and the Monument (yes, we did climb all 164 steps). We had lunch in Astoria and then went to Fort Clatsop. We drove on a beach and I paddled in the Pacific.We went to several beautiful coastal resorts and admired local artists. On both the private tours, we went to interesting restaurants for lunch. We had a fantastic four days- not cheap, but worth every penny. Excellent guides, comfortable vehicles and chocolate covered almonds!

    Everything was first class for our tour. I learned about so much around wine, the region and opportunities to continue exploring on future visits. We got to see the beautiful scenery, taste some great, new wines and experience the Willamette Valley with co-workers on a side trip while in town for work. Would definitely do it again (this was my 2nd trip) the next time I am up here.

    We went on two Evergreen tours while we were in Portland. Our guides were knowledgeable and very personable. The vans were comfortable and the areas that we were shown were interesting and fun.
