I grew up in Portland and was home on vacation when I did the tour with Forktown. I chose to do the route on Mississippi Ave since it has really exploded in just the past years and I knew very little about the area but always read amazing things about its restaurant scene. The 7 spots we visited well represented... More

Two friends and I visited Portland and we did the Alphabet DIstrict tour. We started off eating Fried Chicken on a savoury waffle with maple syrup, and the food fog began. We visited a bagel shop, wine bar, distillery, and ended up in a bakery - there were 7 stops, I cant recall all of them but they were all... More

This was a very good tour with lots of interesting food, both restaurants, and food trucks. Very accomomodating of food allergies and preferences. This tour took us to a neighborhood that we might not have explored on our own. The guide was great and the other folks fun. I could have used a bit more information about the area and... More

Great way to experience the food scene in Portland. We had a group of 5, ranging in age from 11 to 77. All ages loved it! Our fav was the Thai food.

10 gold stars is closer to how AMAZING Forktown's food touring experience is. Truly a MUST DO experience. I'm local and just finished the alphabet district food tour and wow wow wow, am I going to be returning to the restaurants and beer, wine and spirit purveyors with my friends ASAP! What great discoveries. My group is unanimous that our... More

Very diverse foods. And a lot of it. We started out with Thai food. Then we got interesting Italian via food truck. My favorite stop was the Big Little Burger. Easily in the top 5 burgers I've ever had in my life. Additionally the fries were top notch. I had a really great lemonade at Sidecar 11. The color of... More

We had taken the "Bite of Seattle" food tour a couple years ago in Seattle and loved it. When our relatives from Indiana came out for a vacation/visit, we thought we would try a food tour in Portland. We took the Wednesday downtown/Pearl district tour with Kelsey and had a great time. The food was fabulous, and there were excellent... More

We took the Alphabet Tour, walking through an older section of town adjacent to the Pearl district. Tour guide Kelsey was great at filling in historic and local information. Seven establishments provided more good food and drinks than I could have expected, and included a tour of Bull Run Brewery. It's a great introduction to what makes Portland a foodie... More

My cousin visited me in Portland said she wanted to experience the "Portland food scene" so we signed up for the Mississippi Avenue food tour. Although I live in Portland, I haven't spent much time in that neighborhood. I am so glad I took the tour! We made so many stops (I was absolutely stuffed by the end!) and learned... More

Can't say enough of how wonderful our food tour was! We organized a private tour as a fun day with co-workers and Kelsey was super responsive and worked with us to design a tour that met everyone's needs and food restrictions. The food was delicious and the history and information our fantastic tour guide Kelsey provided made the whole experience... More
