Your tour guide will always be Erik wears a Neon Green Shirt. Beware the competitor walking tour company that stands next to Erik with a "Free Tour" sign- If the guide isn't Erik in a neon green shirt, you don't have the right tour. The Tour Is Currently Up And Running! Until September 29th, 2017, there will be a Free Tour of Portland every single day of the week at 11am. Think of this tour as stand up comedy about Portland's weird and wacky history and culture. The Free Tour starts every day 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 shineThe tour is about 2 to 2.5 hrs long and ends in front of Voodoo Donuts and the Saturday Market. Your guide works for tips- you can be assured of the highest quality! Tickets on sale now for my new food cart and brunch tour company- http://www.eatportlandtours.com/

Really outstanding tour. Funny, informative and memorable. I did this tour several years ago. I was excited to bring people on it. It was especially nice that there was new antidotal stories and my favourite memories brought back to life. Excellent job Eric.

Yep. Eric's tour was the right balance of information and fun. The point of a walking tour is to see stuff that you'd miss just walking around. The two hours flew by. Thank yoi

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed Erik's tour. It was a lot of fun while still being very educational. He also recommended some great restaurants along the way that turned out to be awesome.

Not sure how long Eric will be doing this, as he has other adventures being realized. This was fun, and today was very busy as it was swelled by solar eclipse tourists, and Eric did a fine tour.

You don't have to contact him to take the tour. Just show up at Pioneer Courthouse Square a couple of minutes before tour time and he should be there.
