I took took the North Mississippi tour led by Arielle. Her warm manner and smile managed to brighten up the dreary rainy day. Arielle knows her stuff, especially the comings and goings of Portland's chefs and farmers. Portions were generous, restaurants were welcoming and we had a wonderful group of both travelers and locals on the tour. I joined as... More

Arrielle was our tour guide and she was amazing! I felt instantly comfortable with her friendly smile and easy manner. Plus she knows her info about the area we visited and Portland in general. There were 8 of us in the group and by the end of the first visit we were chatting like old friends. The food/drink stops were... More

Come hungry! There's lots of food to eat with an emphasis on local flavors. Our guide was great and shared information about the local area. We did the Mississippi district and really enjoyed it.

A fun and unique afternoon. Discover and learn about local restaurants with a little bit of history as well. Melissa was a great guide! We will be doing the downtown tour soon. This is great for locals and Portland visitors.

We had a great afternoon eating and learning about Portland's ever evolving food and wine landscape. Ariel, our guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic, great energy! The food was nicely curated and left us full enough to skip dinner. I highly recommend this tour and would suggest you take it early in your visit so you can go back to... More

I booked this tour for a small corporate social outing - we had 20 people and they accommodated all of our needs, dietary restrictions, etc. wonderfully. We did the N. Mississippi Ave. tour and it was really fantastic. All of the spots we went to were very unique and different from one another, yet all authentically Portland. The tour guides... More

The food tour was a lot of fun! We covered a wide range of the Pearl District in Downtown. We had 4 savory places and two sweet places. I was very surprised at the amount of food and drink provided. I enjoyed when there was a story behind the food we were tasting. Petunia's Pastries was our last stop and... More
