I did a walking tour through the Pearl District and found the area very intriguing. Our guides were very fun and chalked full of information about beer and the Portland area. I would gladly do this tour again.

This was such a great experience. I bought this tour as an anniversary gift for my husband (I don't drink beer) but had an equally great time. Our driver/tour guide Matthew was awesome and really helped make a great atmosphere. I'd recommend this to people who live in Portland and for out-of-towners!!
