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.

Having never been to Portland before, the first thing we did (after breakfast) was to take not one, but TWO Portland Walking Tours, the Best of Portland, and Underground Portland. On one of the hottest days in recent history, we were blessed with two guides who had a deep impeccable knowledge of their subjects, and their love of Portland showed.... More

We had the best time walking with Brian and learning all about the lovely city of Portland! He took the time to answer questions and kept a good eye on everyone and any special needs. The walk was easy and would work for all ages and would also be child / stroller friendly.

This tour and the tour guide were great. I was reassured about eating from food carts by our guide who explained the system for food safety checks and from then on we sampled away! The tour included some standards= foods and some new and innovative tastes. I'd highly recommend this to anyone with a curiosity about the cart life in... More

This tour was fun and informative. We felt that we learned quite a bit about Portland in a short period of time. Dianne was a great tour guide and we highly recommend the Best of Portland Walking Tour.

On a recent business trip to Portland I thought it would be fun to surprise my colleagues with a tour of the local food cart scene.Our tour guide Adam made the two hour tour both interesting and fun. He took us to the two largest pods of food carts where we were able to taste more than 10 of his... More

Amazing! We learned a lot about chocolate. Josh took us to amazing vendors that gave us some of the most delicious chocolate we have ever eaten. There are so many different ways to enjoy chocolate but the most surprise one was dark chocolate vinegar! We had to buy a bottle! You will not go back to any other Chocolate after... More

We've been to Portland a lot, so this tour was a great way to get the insider's take on local food spots other than the ones that everyone typically talks about. Adam was a great tour director, and the pace and selection of food was great. Really well organized too. Not necessarily great for kids - depending on how adventuresome... More
