Owner description: This Free Comedic Walking Tour is currently up and running every day at 11am! For a full schedule of the 2016 tour season, please see the "Tour Calendar" page of our official website. The last tour of 2016 will be on Tuesday, October 4th. After that the tour will be seasonally closed until May 1st, 2017. Think of the tour as stand up comedy about Portland's weird and wacky history and culture. Sure to have you laughing the whole way through, this is without question the most entertaining walking tour in town! Come find out why local comedian Erik Kennon's Free Walking Tour is so much more fun than one that costs $20 up front! The Free Tour starts everyday at 11am on the sidewalk of SW 6th Ave in front of Pioneer Courthouse (across the street from Pioneer Square and the Visitor Information Center.) No reservation necessary! Just show up! The tour meets 7 days a week, rain or shine :-) Look for Erik, who will be wearing his signature neon green "Free Tour" t-shirt. The tour is about 2hrs long and ends in front of Voodoo Donuts, Chinatown, and the Saturday Market. You'll receive insider tips on restaurants and nightlife, and lots of photo ops! Your guide works for tips- you can be assured of the highest quality!

“Good intro to Portland”

I could have used fewer jokes and more substance, but Erik does a good job of keeping the masses entertained while giving a History Light introduction to the city.

Loved it. Deserving of the number 2 slot on tripadvisor. If you have time, you will enjoy the tour. Good pace, interesting history of city.

Took the family after reading reviews here and was definitely impressed. Eric is a great tour guide and kept the whole group entertained, enthusiastic and informed. It was a very enjoyable 2 hours and I would recommend him and it unreservedly.

“A great intro to Portland”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

We did this walking tour with Eric on our first morning in Portland, and it was a great way to get an overvew of the city. Eric was funny, knowledgeable and a great guide, making this tour a "must do".

“If you go to Portland take this tour!!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013

My boyfriend and I took Eric's tour and LOVED it! He was SUPER nice and took us to interesting spots in the city. He had really funny jokes for everything as well as historical facts that blended well and kept everyone's attention. He gets extra points for being able to keep everything running smoothly even though we had a bunch of annoying little kids constantly interrupting him and hanging off everything on the tour. Bottom line: TAKE THIS TOUR AND TIP HIM WELL BECAUSE HE DESERVES IT!!!!!
