We had a great day on the tour through the Alphabet District of Portland; Amy did a great job making it a fun experience. It's a fabulous way to get a taste and feel for the area, especially if you are not familiar with it.

The Division Street food tour had great variety and the food was wonderful. Our guide was knowledgeable about food and about Portland and her energy was infectious. I take food tours in many cities I visit, for an intro to the local foodie culture and for a delicious experience, and Forktown was no exception. Highly recommend!

This tour was interesting and delicious. Guide Arielle related city history in a fun way. Her love of art and architecture generated good conversation. The diverse food stops created a full meal. One should come hungery! The tour is a real bargain. I am looking forward to doing others from this company and exploring more of Portland

Our tour guide was very passionate, kind, and informative. She was understanding and accommodating to peoples needs, and the tour never felt rushed at all. We ate at maybe 5 stops or so and... More
