My husband and I had an amazing time on this very informative tour given by Eric. He's a local with a tremendous amount of information about the area and its history. He shared lots of fun facts and stories about Portland that we may have never found out. He went above and beyond and showed us the neighborhoods and the surrounding areas and explained a lot of things in great detail. It was definitely worth our afternoon! He made me want to revisit Portland in a future date!

My wife and I visited Portland to celebrate our anniversary. This was the first Portland Explorer tour in 3 months (due to COVID-19) and it did not disappoint! We loved the tour and got to see some amazing lighthouses. We highly recommend!
