I have been on 3 tours with Forktown and loved every minute. I live in Portland and am still amazed at the variety and quality of food offerings we have in this town. We are extremely spoiled. Try to get Kelsey as she is one of my favorite guides of any tours that I have been on. Very knowledgeable, funny,... More

I really enjoy taking in the best of the local food when I visit a place and thought this would be a good way to do that for a short stay in Portland. It fit the bill. We took the N Mississippi Street food tour and had a great time. We saw an area of Portland we would otherwise not... More

We had a nice time with tour guide, Kelsey, on the N. Mississippi Ave tour. There was enough to eat, so come hungry! Four alcoholic drinks were also included, which of course could be skipped if you wish. This would be a great tour for someone who has trouble walking. The stopping points are all very close in proximity; in... More

This was my first ever food tour so I didn't know what to expect. I can report that the Alphabet District tour was outstanding! The guide (I can't remember her name) was helpful, informative, and not the least bit judgmental about our foodie credentials or our likes and dislikes! We visited a total of seven places, from a deli with... More

What a great way to get to know the food culture in Portland! Great food mixed with some history of the city. Kelsey clearly loves her home town. Thanks for a great time.

There was once a time when I would scoff at the idea of taking any sort of tour to get to know a city and poked fun at the groups of gawking tourists exploring unknown territory. Forktown totally changed my perception on the matter and I can't sing their praises enough. My friend and I (both Portland locals) opted for... More

I went on a Forktown Food Tour with Kelsey! She was great! She's very knowledgeable on food and Portland culture! The tour as more than food, she also gave a little lesson on Portland. Overall it was a useful tour! The food carts are excellent. It's a tour I definitely recommend if you are going to Portland.

If you are new to Portland or just visiting, this is a fantastic way to get to know the city. I went on the Mississippi Tour that included 8 stops, everything from sit down to food carts to your local bar. I loved it and really enjoyed the fun facts that Kelsey provided us with throughout the tour. Come hungry... More
