We loved this tour! We rented the bikes after the tour and took them the rest of the afternoon. Our guide let us know about other trails and sites we wouldn’t want to miss in Portland. Very informative and great to work with. Highly recommend!!

What a lovely way to spend a morning! Kurt was super friendly and knowledgeable about the city, and was able to adjust our multi-generational group's speed according to our needs. My husband and I look forward to booking the Brews Cruise next! Thanks for an awesome time, y'all!!
