Sherri was a great tour guide for our small group I was traveling with a friend. It was during a heat wave and we were on foot. But, it was a very short walk between all venues and they were either air conditioned or there was adequate shade.

We enjoyed the variety. We started with Thai and moved on to Russian and then on to more stops. We sampled a variety of foods and both a few alcoholic and also non-alcoholic drinks at the stops.

Sherri also shared a lot of information with us about the neighborhood we were in, as well as the history of the area and local buildings and answered many of our questions about Portland itself. I had a couple dietary restrictions which she asked about in an email prior to the tour commencing and she was able to modify for me on the day of the trip so that I could participate fully.

She was very well prepared and it was a good use of time. We would do another tour with her.

My husband and I brought some visiting friends on this tour with Sherri. WE had so much fun and went back home stuffed. It was a nice variety of food and drinks. We will definitely be going back to a couple of the restaurants, so this tour was a great way to get a taste for what they serve. Sherri has a very pleasant way of explaining the food, and the history of Portland throughout our walk. We will definitely be trying another of her tours in the future.

Sherri curated a wonderful food tour for the senses. The Buckman Hood tour is highly recommended. The Portland history narration was a major bonus, as well. We've done food tours in several US cities and this ranks near the top.

We had a great time now that everything is opening back up. We did our food tour on Memorial Day and had a tasty and informative experience. Sherri is very knowledgeable and personable. The Russian dumplings (cheese, sour cherry) and kvass and pork meatball bahn mi at Lardo were our favorites! Great cuisine and company.
