Tours: Roses Gone Wild (Rose Garden Tour)
We know roses.
Join us as we unearth the secrets, fun facts, and behind-the-scenes mysteries of Portland’s blushing beauties at the world-famous International Rose Test Garden. Even if you've been to the garden before, you've seen only a fraction of the truth. We'll be exposing you to everything you've never seen (or smelled)!
This sub 45-minute "Roses Gone Wild" walking tour lets you in on the hidden stories and colorful anecdotes that a casual stroll on your own would never reveal. You'll laugh your way through this engaging walk through the City of Roses' signature destination - from the historical quirks of the garden to outrageous trivia and useful tips that will surprise you. Our captivating Resident Experts (aka Guides) direct you to answers on dozens of puzzling secrets while discovering, seeing and smelling what everyone else just walks right by.
We even have a portion of the tour that we like to call the "Rose Bro's" - key advice just for the men on our tour. We'll keep them engaged too with tips on romance and a couple of key things every man should know about flowers. Fear not, guys and gals, it's "Roses Gone Wild!"
With irresistible factoids, stunning city views, a sea of fragrant roses, and the backdrop of historical Washington Park, this fun tour is quintessentially Portland.
