My husband and I just went to Portland for the weekend and booked a food tour with Forktown. Heidi the owner was running the tour the day we went and training a new tour guide. Both ladies were informative and enthusiastic. The tour was very well organized, we didn't wait or want for anything. Food was delicious. Great variety. We... More

My friends and I just finished an unforgettable tour of North Mississippi with tour guide Marissa. Wow! I learned so much, even after having lived in PDX for 10+ years. A tip for the first-timers: Come hungry! The servings were generous at every stop along the way and the walk between destinations is just a couple blocks (not enough to... More

Went on the Sunday tour on North Mississippi. I'm glad I only had a protein shake for breakfast, because I was stuffed after this tour. We had six different stops ranging from thai, food truck, cocktails, and dessert. Marissa was an awesome tour guide and I left knowing a lot about the history of the neighborhood and the eateries. I... More

Heidi was an amazing guide for our group. She managed 16 adults like a pro, giving us each individual attention. The food selections had a perfect amount of variety (from Thai to burgers to interesting cocktails) and the sequencing was very balanced - most heartier things were in the beginning and we had stops for drinks or other things at...

Our family (including one child, one teen) had a delightful 3 hour food tour with Heidi, the proprietor and Melissa, one of the newest members of the company's team. Our tour focused on an area called "Slabtown" or NW 23rd. Great welcome; warm. Knowledgeable. Great choice of establishments, including Besaw's, one of the oldest restaurants in Portland, Bull Run Distilling... More

As a surprise for my wife (we are both amateur foodies here in the Portland area) booked a tour with Forktown for their Downtown/Pearl District route. Heidi, the owner, was our guide - she is amazing. Not only did she treat us to a fantastic tour of wonderful eateries, including a surprisingly delicious food cart stop, she also bestowed a... More

Did the downtown and pearl district tour. It was a good tour but I like their Mississippi tour better. Obviously have used them before and think their tour, food, and information is spot on.

Another great tour from Forktown Food Tours. After the first tour of N. Mississippi Ave. with my daughter in February I wanted to experience more of what Forktown and Portland has to offer with my husband. We parked at the waterfront and walked our way through Portland's Saturday Market up the 9 blocks to meet at the first location. We... More

Amy was awesome and not only introduced us to the best and most interesting food places, we learned about history, the neighborhoods and the town in general. Great tour!

Kelsey was great-knowledgable, informative, and friendly. All of the food and drinks were yummy! The tour got us to venture into a neighborhood we may have missed otherwise. And the tour was easily accessible to public transit.
