Columbia Gorge Wine Tours-

When you choose to spend your day with us, it is exactly
that — your day — we will do everything we can to make it
a special one. Our drivers are always able to accommodate
your needs as well as suggest wineries that fit your tastes
and the best sights in the Columbia River Gorge.

I wanted to drop a line to let you know what a fantastic time we had on our Hood River wine tour. Phillip went above and beyond every step of the way. He took the time to personally get us set up at each of the Columbia Gorge wineries, and made several detours during the day to check out local events, point out fantastic views, historic sites, and restaurants he would recommend. He was full of information and good humor – everything you could possibly ask for in a guide. Keep up the great work.

Thank you so much for a wonderful tour of The Columbia Gorge. This was by far the best part of our honeymoon, and we will recommend you to everybody we know visiting your area. Gail did anincredible job of taking care of us during the day. He was so informative, telling us things about the area and about each of the wineries that we never would have known otherwise. At the end of the day, he even made restaurant reservations for us for that evening with one of the winermakers we had met. The tour was definitely the highlight of our honeymoon. Thank you so much.

5.22.13 -We really enjoyed the tour with Philip, and so appreciate his flexibility in accommodating our wishes.
Many of us were especially impressed with the Cultura Winery as a last-minute decision, and were grateful for Philip's quick thinking. We loved all the wineries he took us to, would do them again except perhaps for Hyatt if we had to leave out one. (We determined later that 4 was enough!)

We're so grateful your company serves that area, despite the long trek for the driver. Glad we found you, and don't be surprised if you are hired again in the future. I'll look you up when I bring over all my sisters from Montana!

Please express our gratitude to Philip---he was a good fit for our group.

Best regards for a productive summer,

We had the BEST TIME on your tour.
Christiwas awesome. We drove around by ourselves our first day in town, and we couldn’t believe how much we had missed by trying to read the map, find sideroads, etc. Christi answered all of our questions, made great suggestions on hiking trails and windsurfing spots in the Gorge, and even helped us plan the rest of our trip. We expected somebody to just drive us around. What we got was a full tour guide/concierge/travel agent/ and gourmet lunch all in one. Wish we could take her every time we go on vacation.

Christi and Phil,

We had a great time on the tour…..Phil took us to all the right places and I am starting to “understand” wines.

We truly loved Hood River and all it has to offer but the Wine Tour was the highlight of “Girls Weekend.” I look forward to using Hood River Tours in the future and will make sure to pass your information on.

Thanks again,

Maureen and the “girls”


I just wanted to say THANK YOU! to you and Phil for a wonderful May Day experience. We had such a great time and Phil was such a pleasure to have as a driver. He was pleasant and knowledgeable and tolerated our cackling and belly laughing and incessant talking in the van. My husband says the volume level goes up several decibels when we all get together. The wineries we went to were all fabulous and we are already talking about when we are going to do this again as a group. I am attaching a few pictures from our trip. Please feel free to use them if you would like. I am happy to share my wonderful experience with anyone!


Hi guys, just wanted to thank you for the excellent service on the Wine tour last week. You did a fantastic job with my 22 clients, and they were very impressed with the Gorge, and ultimatley my company! Exactly what I needed to boost my business. I hope to bring them back next year, and hit the wineries we didn't get to last time. I will recommend your business to my associates should they need a corporate retreat or corporate tour bus in the Columbia Gorge.

After spending 3 weeks in the Columbia River Gorge, my husband and I are convinced that your tour is the greatest bargain in The Gorge. We went to 4 wineries, 1 vineyard, saw incredible views of the river, and had an outstanding summer picnic. Thank you for an extraordinary day, and for introducing us to many wonderful wineries. Marshals was our favorite!
We used our gift certficate & it was such a great suggestion for a unique and memorable Birthday Gift!

Christi, It's been a pleasure to work with Hood River Tours this last summer. We always get rave reviews from our guests who have booked a tour with your company, and you have helped us to offer guests a great room and wine package in the Gorge. We never have to worry about them driving in town, and we know they will come back next year. You've helped our business grow, and also the community of Hood River. Let's continue the good work next season.

Mount Hood and the Columbia River Gorge
Sixty miles east of Portland, through the Columbia River Gorge, the Cascade Mountains, and Mount Hood, the land and air go from moist to arid in a very short distance. Phil and Christi Duvic, newlyweds and owners of Hood River Tours, were the first to start a tour operation in the area that focuses on wine. They pick parties up from their hotels and treat them to personalized four- to five-hour tours, including a carefully prepared lunch. "We want our guests to relax and have fun," Christi says. "The wineries are glad to see them and most of the time they will get to talk to the owner. It's a great way for people to come out and get started wine tasting." The Duvics keep the tour size small. They take groups of up to 14 people in a passenger van, and up to six people in a mini-van for parties who don't know each other. And because Hood River and The Dalles are so close in proximity yet so different in soil and climate, they find it easy to demonstrate the importance of terroir. "The Barberas and Syrahs coming out of The Dalles area are really great. And the Hood River seems to have something for every palate," Christi says. "It's a great place to discover."
