Owner description: 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.

“Great tour!”
Reviewed 26 February 2012

Went on the over-18 version of Portland Walking Tours Ghost Tour ... excellent tour, not only for the cool ghost aspects, but for the historical aspects of the city of Portland. Learned a lot about the city and what created its haunted history. Tour guide was awesome, and he got a dozen Voodoo Donuts for the group which was fun :) Wish we saw a ghost but the tour was awesome!!!!

“Worth the time and money”
Reviewed 8 February 2012

Went on two tours, underground and chocolate. Both were fun and interesting, but only do the chocolate if you are really into it.

“Great Tour!”
Reviewed 29 January 2012

My daughter was visiting from Las Vegas and we decided to take a Portland tour. We settled on the "Beyond Bizarre" tour as this seemed interesting to us.

We were met by Tara as scheduled and began a walking tour of several blocks of Old Town Portland. We had a grand time. Tara was very informative, and animated. Although we didn't see any ghosts, we were certainly not disappointed in the tour. Great job Tara!

Be aware, however, we went to the late tour (10PM), and encountered some clubbing drunks and homeless folks. Tara handled all very well in keeping to her tour, and maintaining a watchful eye of the surroundings.

“My 10 year old and I had a great ghost tour.”
Reviewed 19 January 2012

The Beyond Bizarre tour was a gift for my 10 year old daughter. It was very important to her; she had been asking to go for 6 months. It was even more fun than I had expected. Our guide did an excellent job keeping the tour interesting and appropriately PG for my daughter, while still keeping it engaging for the adults. I had a great time and learned lots of new fun things about our city.

“perfect way to know Portland's food scene”
Reviewed 17 January 2012

This is best way to get to know the food scene in Portland. Covers from Coffee to food trucks to pastry and of course beer. There is a lot of behind the scenes too!! Also our guide, Damon, knew almost everything about Portland which made the tour even more interesting. I am amazed how much I have learned from Damon and this walking tour.

I would highly recommend if its your first time in Portland to do this epicurean walking tour, even if you have been here before, you should sign up for this.
