About Throw Snakes Tours
I show you the soul of Portland by immersing you in its people. This means exploring neighborhood districts, drinking taps from neighborhood breweries, and getting the neighborhood perspective by interacting with the people who live there. We’ll make a mildly-inebriated adventure from seeing why the people of Portland are the attraction of the city.
