Portland Walking Tours’ fun and award-winning events explore the excitement, history, food, architecture, neighborhoods, bridges, parks, fountains, artwork, and just plain weird places in Portland Oregon. Tours include the award-winning “Best of Portland,” showcasing what makes Portland such a fabulous place to live and visit (daily, 10 AM and 2 PM); our scandalous “Underground Portland,” aka "the worst of Portland," revealing both the physical and metaphorical subterranean story of Portland's sordid past; the eerie “Beyond Bizarre”, a hands-on exploration of Portland's paranormal, using real ghost-hunting equipment as seen on shows like "Ghost Adventurer" (TM) and "Paranormal State" (TM); our delicious “Epicurean Excursion” walking tour, a tasty immersion into Portland's amazing culinary "slow food" scene; our indulgent “Chocolate Decadence Tour," exploring and sampling chocolate in its many solid and liquid forms, from bean to bar and everything in between; "Roses Gone Wild!", which dishes the dirt on Portland's famous International Rose Test Gardens; and "Flavor Street," where you taste the best of Portland's incredible food cart scene - and skip the rest.

We really enjoyed the terrific walking tour around downtown Portland to see the historic and quirky things that make Portland unique. Our guide was Ahren and he did a great job.

Richard was our excellent guide. Tour started on time (!) and he gave us a great tour. Lots of interesting information and quirky tidbits. He was friendly and outgoing and we felt as if we got an "insiders view" of the SW area of downtown.

Should be called, "walk around and over homeless folks in their outdoor homes tour." Very disappointed and not advertised honestly. The old line, "where's the beef?" Makes me ask, ""where us the underground in the underground tour?"

Gave 3 stars instead of 4 stars because the name is a bit of a misnomer. Unlike Seattle's underground tour, which is fully underground, this one only ends in a small area under their office because the Portland tunnels have been closed. That said, our...More
