We took the Mississippi Tour with Marissa and we were so glad we did! We learned a lot about the neighbourhood and tasted so many great dishes. I brought my toddler with me, and my aunt who spoke limited English. Marissa she was so welcoming and inclusive, she really made sure we had a great time. Would definitely recommend this... More

We enjoyed every minute of this tour! Definitely come hungry because it is a LOT of food! Marissa was a great tour guide and really took time to answer questions and talk to each group on the tour. She was very knowledgeable of the food scene in Portland as was Heidi who sat in on our tour. We enjoyed trying... More

wonderful way to experience a foodie city like Portland. Loved getting a taste of the food trucks along with a good mix of ethnic and high end restaurants. Super food experience and great guide with Kelsey. So informative and knowledgeable about each of the restaurants and their unique specializations! Very enjoyable.

I did a Forktown tour of NW Portland a few years back and came back for another when they started doing Downtown and the Pearl District. I'm a local who works and eats downtown regularly and was curious to see how the Forktown team would represent this part of our town's food culture. They didn't disappoint - the experience was...

This was not only an informative tour on Portland History, but the food was fantastic at every stop. We sampled Thai, Philly food from a food truck, Salt and chocolate samplings, great burgers and fries with truffle oil and finished it off with ice cream . . . . all on Mississippi Ave! Kelsey was knowledgeable, helpful and very friendly.... More

We took the tour on Sunday before Veteran's day, led by Marissa-there were only 2 couples-it was great! We learned the history of the neighborhood and ate until we couldn't do it anymore. When they say it's a food tour-it's not just tasting...worth the $! The weather was fantastic and the food/drink delicious! We stayed downtown and caught the #4... More

All restaurants were very accommodating for substituting the alcoholic beverage. The guide was fun and very knowledgeable of the neighborhood and Portland history. We got to go to many different style of restaurants going to pud,... More

My husband and I took the Mississippi historic district food tour led by Kelsy a couple of weeks ago, and I can't stop talking about it. The tour was smart, spiced with well balanced offerings, filled with facts from history, land use, environmental issues, a very good exposure to THE BASIC FOOD (chocolate). Nice,nice people, certainly service oriented. So glad... More

For a birthday, we planned a food-filled trip to Portland. We had booked a brunch at Beast (loved it!) and then went on the N Mississippi tour starting around 1pm. We opted to walk from Beast in an effort to get hungry again and since the weather was so pretty, it worked well. The tour was not very walking intensive... More
