This tour was fantastic. Based on some of the previous reviews I was a little leery to commit to it, but I am so happy I did. My partner and I try to go on a ghost tour whenever we are visiting a new city,...More

We sampled enough delicious chocolate to satisfy even the most gluttonous, at a variety of local shops. Dianne led us on a great tour, providing details of the confections we were tasting, as well as some interesting Portland history.

Kelsey seemed to enjoy giving tours and her job. It was interesting to hear the history of Portland and all the stories. She gave us some great tips on where to go and what to eat.

Hi Igecc! Thanks for the review of our Best of Portland tour with Grace! A word of caution to anyone reading your review... We definitely cannot promise 300+ tubas and tuba-aficionados playing Christmas music at the start of every tour. You were lucky enough to...More

Doug was an exceptional guide! His love of this city melds with knowledge of the seedy history. Conscientious of time yet encouraging of in depth questions. The tour will give you a sense of the city's history, providing a foundation for further exploration.
