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.

We went on this tour thinking it would be fun and interesting. The walking part was really slow. So slow that we all wouldn't be able to get across the street in the same light. And the guide walked backwards and talked the entire time leading up to every attraction, which kept the pace slow and lead to general disinterest... More

This was a great tour of the downtown area. We learned so much fun facts and history about Portland in a light and engaging way. The walk was easy and Drew clearly loves sharing his city with visitors.

I took the tour with my wife. We came to the great city of Portland as tourists. After Richard's tour we probably know more than the locals! He walked us around Pioneer Courthouse Square, to the immense statue of Portlandia, into a very beautiful tri-theatre house, and down to the waterfront. All the while, providing a rich and very thorough... More

This tour was absolutely amazing. It exceeded all expectations. We went to three different pods and got to sample from ten carts. Each one was better than the next. The portions were very generous and I was so excited throughout the whole tour. Dave, our tour guide was very educated on the different pods, carts and how the food cart... More

I set off on the Epicurean Excursion Walking Tour in the morning with Adam and the Chocolate Decadence Walking Tour with Bob on a beautiful Sunday. Perfect weather helped, but the guides were fun, personable, knowledgeable, and well organized. For the Epicurean Excursion Adam added a stop since our group was small. Each stop was ready for us without wait... More

On a sunny February afternoon, Hans , our walking tour guide, was full of enthusiasm and information on the Best of Portland tour. He answered our questions well and had some funny anecdotes on some of Portland's interesting architectural and historical sights. It was the best $20 spent here!

We had such a great time with Herb as our guide! The places he took us were delicious and interesting (we ended up making reservations at one of the locations for dinner, and had an amazing meal) I think we went to 8 locations and learned about the establishment and owner, tasted off their menu, and walked around the city....
