Portland Short Bus

Portland Short Bus

Hop aboard our short yellow school bus and let us safely whisk you, your friends and/or strangers about to be friends into Portland’s hard-drinking expanse.

Our flagship PDX Urban Wine tour takes you on a wine tasting foray into Portland’s industrial warehouses, trendy tasting rooms, and residential garages where local winemakers ply their trade.

If daytime wine sipping ain’t your thing, we also offer many periodic GUIDED night time bar tours through Portland’s diviest dives, coolest scenester joints, and nakedest nudie bars. Our ever popular FestiBUS is an intoxicating holiday season romp about town.

 

Seats on our public tours can only be purchased online via our website.

Our buses are also available for private party rentals for a variety of tours, including:

  • Urban Wine Tours
  • Distillery Tours
  • Brewery Tours
  • Wine Country Tours

Private rentals for evening bar crawls are taken on a case by case basis. Contact us for conditions. You might check our friends at Cascadia Cruiser, Shanghai Party Bus, or Old School PDX.

Open to the Public Short Bus Tours

Our tours are meant to be a social experience they are a fantastic way for you to find new and unexpected friendships. If you have a group of 9 or more people, please consider a private tour rather than purchasing seats on our public tours. Often large groups tend to overwhelm fellow riders who frequently join in ones, twos, or threes.

How many do you want:

Wine tasting isn't just a scenic cruise through tranquil countryside surrounding Portland - nay, you can enjoy it right here our own fair city - Portland has a thing for vintage. There are no fewer than 12 wineries right here in the urban heart of Portland.

Just like our distilleries, breweries, and restaurants these places are aces. Hop on the Short Bus with up to 12 other revelers and let us provide you with a ride around town to these fantastic wineries. Plenty of sipping, you leave the driving to us. The tour lasts approximately 5 hours (give or take, depending on traffic), and we will visit three of Portland's many fantastic urban wineries.

    Guided Tour Includes:
  • Guide/driver
  • Complimentary tastings at each winery
  • Your own drunk proof Portland Short Bus wine glasses
  • Wine/Bottle openers & Cooler
  • Complimentary bottled water
  • Playlist that covers all genres for fun listening music while sipping wine on bus
  • Drinking/eating privileges on the bus (No outside alcohol on urban wine tours please. Trust us, you will not need it anyway. However, you may certainly drink your winery purchases from that day on the bus, and we would encourage you to share with your fellow riders.)
  • Pre-selected wineries chosen by your guide
  • Special Deals for Portland Short Bus Riders from wineries!

Pick up/drop off at the EastBurn 12:00pm / 5:00pm

The cost of a tasting (aka flight) at each winery varies between $10-$15 for 3-5 generous pours. But guess what - as a Portland Short Bus customer, you do not have to pay those fees (on average, that is a $35 value) So the only expenses you need to worry about are what bottles you are going to buy at reduced retail costs - PSB customers can expect 10%+ off of their bottle purchases at select wineries. Volume often speaks, well, volumes in that market! ;)

Bring your confirmation e-mail at EastBurn and your will receive 10% off your meal either before or after the tour.
