We took our tour on a spring Sunday with James. It was our third time to Portland but our first foodie tour. We enjoyed ourselves and would not only take another tour with this company but definitely recommend it to others. The guide was knowledgeable and engaging (including cautioning individual guests about their relevant allergy concerns). The walk was short... More

Did the Portland Foodie Tour, wasn't sure what to expect, but was delighted with the whole tour. James, our tour guide was wonderful as he shared his knowledge of Portland as well as all the restaurants and foods. We enjoyed tasting and drinking Portland specialties. Minimal walking involved, and where we went allowed us an insider view of the cities... More

After sifting through a bunch of reviews we settled on this tour. Our guide was James, super knowledgable and seems like a really good guy. The tour itself lacked a little in my opinion. The initial meeting point is in a spice shop where you have lobster Mac and cheese and mix in spices, it was average, nothing to rave... More

What an excellent way to tour Portland, discover local food and restaurants and generally have a good time! My son and I took this tour, and while he begrudgingly agreed to go, afterwards he said it was the most fun thing we'd done in Portland. Highly recommend.

We had a great time this past Saturday doing a walking/drinking tour. Our guide was fun and we drank the cost of the trip. Fine beers and cocktails. Tasty apps too. We got the scoop on the prohibition days and what its like to brew and cook in Portland now. Lot's of fun and what nice people on our trip!
