Portland Walking Tours’ fun and award-winning events explore the excitement, history, food, architecture, neighborhoods, bridges, parks, fountains, artwork, and just plain weird places in Portland Oregon. Tours include the award-winning “Best of Portland,” showcasing what makes Portland such a fabulous place to live and visit (daily, 10 AM and 2 PM); our scandalous “Underground Portland,” aka "the worst of Portland," revealing both the physical and metaphorical subterranean story of Portland's sordid past; the eerie “Beyond Bizarre”, a hands-on exploration of Portland's paranormal, using real ghost-hunting equipment as seen on shows like "Ghost Adventurer" (TM) and "Paranormal State" (TM); our delicious “Epicurean Excursion” walking tour, a tasty immersion into Portland's amazing culinary "slow food" scene; our indulgent “Chocolate Decadence Tour," exploring and sampling chocolate in its many solid and liquid forms, from bean to bar and everything in between; "Roses Gone Wild!", which dishes the dirt on Portland's famous International Rose Test Gardens; and "Flavor Street," where you taste the best of Portland's incredible food cart scene - and skip the rest.

This tour was very informative, and we got lucky with great weather. It is a 2.5 hour walking tour, so be sure to wear comfortable shoes. The only issue I had was that at the only bathroom stop, the bathrooms were locked, but other than that the tour was great. Our guide was very knowledgeable.

I highly recommend all the visitor to Portland to take this tour. It's not only showing the city of portland, but also knowing the history of portland. Richard, the tour guide is knowledgable and vibrant. I learned lots of info after the tour.

We had a very nice afternoon with this tour. Took 2 1/2 hours, and it proceeded at just the right speed. Dianne, our guide, set a very nice, friendly tone and really made the trip enjoyable. She does the tour on Saturdays... I would highly recommend her as a tour guide. She added in some Portland facts about the city... More

This was one of the best touristy things I've done on a vacation. Our guide Adam was entertaining and knowledgable about the different food carts in the area. We went to 9 carts and everything was amazing from Korean tacos to handmade pastrami to savory desserts. 5 stars and highly recommended!

The variety of things that we tried was much more extensive than expected( from food trucks, artisan chocolate,beer,and much more).many of these we would not have experienced except... More

Richard did a great job bringing Portland to life. He really loves his town and it shows. I learned way more than I would on my own and would highly recommend to anyone visiting. First Rate.
