“Biking to Japanese Garden a Novice Success”
Reviewed March 16, 2014

Thanks to the helpful pros at Portland Bike Tours. WE DID IT. Even with a variety of skill levels, we succeeded in charting a course, getting the bikes on the TriMax, and biking to the Japanese Gardens. All six of our group were quickly fitted with bikes. As the weakest link in our group of 4 teenagers and a biking savvy husband, I was treated with the greatest respect and helpfulness. I was given a multi speed bike, with a very comfortable seat that was in great shape. The breaks were excellent Helmets were easy to pick out, and a tub of ponchos were available for us to borrow. The bathrooms for customers were very clean and easy to access and extra secure. Even though we did NOT have a tour guide, we were given great tips by staff to navigate a route of riding the MAX, walking and biking to make sure we were biking down steep paths, instead of up. This was even after the Shamrock run, and during the commute by Timbers fans to the game. I'll proudly wear the reflective souvenir T-Shirt when we return to Norman Oklahoma.

“Such A Great Way to See the City”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

My husband and I were a little intimidated by the idea of driving to breweries while biking. But, we are so glad we did this bike tour!! We saw parts of the city we would have never otherwise seen, and our guide took us to some incredible breweries that we didn't know existed. This tour was the most fun we had in Portland. I would highly recommend this tour - especially if it's your first time in Portland. Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable about the city and perfectly accommodating to anything we wanted to do. Well worth the money!!

“Nice tour of Portland - try the brewery tour.”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

I had a couple of hours to spend and did the brewery tour. Our tour was extremely knowledgable about not only the different breweries and beers and what makes Portland such a good beer city, but also about the City and regional history as well. Well worth the price!

“Great activity”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

My wife and I went on the essentials tour. This was my 3rd trip to Portland as a tourist. We had a great time. Pace of the ride was leisurely. Tour guide was passionate about material covered and very adept at navigating the Portland urban cycling scene. Great experience.

“Great way to start visit”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

Terrific first activity for our trip to Portland. Got a little history, a great overview that made getting around town the rest of the trip a breeze. Some interesting Portland culture and city planning history too. Fun, active, not too difficult a ride.
