The Multnomah Falls & Columbia River Gorge portion of the tour departs at 8:30 am from Pioneer Courthouse Square at the corner of SW Yamhill and SW Broadway (780 SW Broadway). Look for the Gray Line/Big Pink Sightseeing Trolley Sales Booth in the southwest corner of the Square. Tour returns at approximately 1:15 PM depending on traffic.
Please make your Deluxe Combination Tour reservation for the day you want to take the Multnomah Falls and Columbia River Gorge Tour. The Hop-On Hop-Off days can be taken before or after the Falls & Gorge Trip.
Note: In the shoulder seasons (May 27 to June 15 and September 5 to October 15) when the Falls and & Gorge Tour does not operate daily the Combination Tour is only available on the days the Falls & Gorge Tour operates. You can reverse your Combination Tour on those dates doing the Hop-On Hop-Off portion of the tour first and the Falls & Gorge second, on the days it operates. For example, if you want to buy a Deluxe Combination tour that starts on Wednesday, book one for Thursday but use your Hop-On Hop-Off Tour on Wednesday, take the Falls & Gorge Tour on Thursday and use the other day of your two day trolley pass on Thursday afternoon or on Friday.
The Hop-On Hop-Off Trolley Tour portion of the tour departs hourly from Pioneer Courthouse Square at the top of each hour.
