Overview

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.

Richard was funny, smart and obviously knew Portland inside-out. Highly recommended, 11 out of 10. I've been told I need at least 100 characters. Ummm. I guess this just put me I've. Cool

We did the Portland Underground tour. Erich was our guide and was AMAZING--so informative but also made the tour fun and lively. Learned a lot and definitely want to do another one to learn the city better. Highly recommend (ask for Erich)!

A walking tour is the best way to see a new city and learn about its history and interesting facts. Richard is a Portland native and very passionate about his city. Tour was interesting and never boring.
