This was a great tour. We got to see Portland and all the different neighborhoods while hearing about the city’s history. There is a strong connection to fires and firefighting that makes the fire truck aspect ever so much more so! The guide and driver were super knowledgeable. Very friendly... so glad we booked. We were there during Covid and all protocols were in place and enforced.

The firetruck tour was a great experience! Booking the tour and finding the meeting spot were easy. The tour itself was just the right of time and information. Overall it was a really fun way to get to know Portland and learn some cool history of the city. My toddler absolutely loved it but the adults enjoyed it just as much. Definitely recommend!!

Four of us took the tour. Our guide was very well informed and made the tour very interesting. I had to make the travel itinerary for four people and everyone thanked me and said it was an excellent tour. Time well spent.
