IMPORTANT UPDATE: I have decided to permanently shut down my Free Walking tour. There will no longer be free tours offered of Portland's downtown every day at 11am. From 2012 until 2019 I had a privilege showing tourists and locals alike the beauty of Portland, Oregon! Being a Free Tour guide was the best job ever and I have so many wonderful memories of our time together. Thank you for all of your support over the years- Erik Kennon
Portland, Oregon

No longer active. This would have been nice to have seen posted on the WEBSITE. No where on the website does it say it’s been shut down. Wasted an entire morning waiting for it and then wasted some more realizing no one was going to show up.

We went to the meeting place for this tour and an employee from the Pioneer Courthouse very rudely came out and told the 8 of us standing there that this tour has not been going on for 2 years. We ended up doing our own walking tour but book elsewhere, this one is not running.

The Secrets of Portlandia free walking tour is great way to understand a little bit more about Portland while spending a lovely time walking around parts of the city and learning about it's history, culture, etc. HIGHLY RECOMMEND if you have a few hours to spare in your visit to the Rose City!

We did this tour with Erik on a rainy Sunday in September. Even though it poured the whole time, Erik kept us well informed and entertained. This guy loves his city, and was so excited to show our group all the cool little things travelers most likely miss when in Portland. We just loved the whole tour, and the tips on where to eat were helpful.

Eric was extremely entertaining and funny (perhaps he should do stand-up comedy or star on SNL), and made this one of the most entertaining walking tours I've ever had (and I've travelled the globe). Despite his shenanigans and great fake Irish accent, he still provided a lot of valuable history about Portland and it's origins which was useful, and made the tour worthwhile. He explained Portland's history in such a way that even people who aren't history fanatics (like me) would appreciate it. Not sure why I needed to review this, all the 5* reviews before me speak for themselves, but this deserves yet another great review nonetheless.

We took Erik's tour on Monday, Sept. 16. It was one of the most fun things we did while in Portland. He was a wealth of information and made learning more about Portland fun. Even though my husband and I have some health issues that can sometime make walking difficult, his tour was at an easy pace. The tour lasted almost 2 hours and we enjoyed every minute of it!

Eric was an engaging tour guide; tailored his talk for those who like history and those who like trivia. It's a pay-what-you-want tour which seems to have become a model for a lot of city tours. We paid $20 each; Eric up front about not requesting a specific amount and was aggressive about contributions. Tour 2 hours, probably less than a mile of walking, with stops.

This was an remarkable experience to get to know about Portland in such a manner. Interesting and representative locations picked up perfectly.

The only thing that affected me and my buddies during the tour were these looooong stops, which eventually lasted up to 40 minutes of standing and listening.

Erik is interesting, has a good sense of humor, and has lots of fun facts about Portland. The history of Portland was fascinating. Unfortunately, there was just too much information given at each stop...Too in-depth for the average person! I would also have to agree (with other reviewers) that it's unnecessary for Erik to advertise his friend's walking tour in Seatte, and important to keep his food tour promotion to a bare minimum. Eric's got everything it takes to be an Awesome tour guide...My suggestion would be to shorten the narrative at each stop and include a few more fun places in Portlandia (i.e. like VooDoo Donuts, the 12 bridges of Portland, the coffee culture, the bookstore that takes up a city block, the origin of the neighborhoods and their names...). Ahhh….So many places, so little time! Thanks, Erik, for your enlightenment of Portland!!

Eric took the time to greet us beforehand which was nice because not many walking tour guides do that. It was quite a long tour and it was actually pretty warm so I’m glad I brought something to drink with me. I thought it was kinda a long tour and some of the places were a bit obscure and maybe we spent too long at each stop. But it was a good tour overall.
