Seeing the old buildings and getting some history of the city. Got a good flavor for what built this area. Sitting in that truck was a bit uncomfortable and the scenery focus was on the side of the street rather than straight ahead. The multimedia player hardly worked.

Thank you for taking the time to review us Gayle, we appreciate you taking time out of your day to do so. Our vintage 1971 Fire Engine has been converted but it certainly is not a modern day tour bus which we feel adds to the fun and we always hope it takes our guests back in time. I apologize for the multi media problems you encountered on your tour. The lightning cable we use from Apple seems to fail occasionally, which is odd for an Apple product, and we replace them regularly. I would love to put you on another tour to prove ourselves to you. Please give me a call, all my contact information can be found on our website.

The architecture of Portland. Information about where to in Portland. The only down side was we sat on the wrong side of the fire truck. I had to turn around to see most of the sights. Over all a great ride for the family.
