Great Portland Walking Tour
, May 2022
Wanting to learn more about Portland, we signed up for this tour and were happy we did. Tour guides offered insightful understanding to Portland’s history and current events. Just wish we had more time in the City to take another tour with this group.
Welcome to Portland!
, May 2022
As a moderate liberal, I was taken back by the essential cancelling of Lincoln, Roosevelt, Lewis/Clark, and Henry Ford. NO acknowledgement contributions being great-Just what they got wrong. And the reason for the displeasure with the orphans/ICE headquarters never quite clear. Plus a whitewash of the 2020 riots and homeless tents we were walking past. You’d be more persuasive with a slightly more balanced presentation. Actually made me question the accuracy of the facts being presented. Rachel is obviously smart and engaging. She just needs to be more sensitive to her audience- I didn’t pay for a lecture.
Great tour
, May 2022
Great walking tour with a lot of historic stories and art. My husband and I enjoyed it and would recommend it.
Great tour of Portland

Karen gave us a wonderful tour, which hit the highlights of Portland. She is very knowledgeable and friendly. Highly recommend if you like walking tours.

Oh I'm so happy you enjoyed the tour! I believe your guide was Nanci, but she's just thrilled to have such a positive recommendation :)
A great introduction to Portland
, Apr 2022
Sarah was funny, entertaining; and extremely knowledgeable. The perfect introduction to Portland - it's history, it's culture; and it's architecture.
icon Response from Host , May 2022
I am thrilled you had a great time! Please do come back to visit soon.
Great walking tour
, Apr 2022
Great walking tour that covered a lot of downtown Portland. We learned a lot about the history of the city, as well as the notable architecture.
icon Response from Host , Apr 2022
thank you for your wonderful review! Nanci is a delight to have as a guide and I'm glad you enjoyed your experience.
Excellent day!

Fascinating Portland!

Nancy was such an engaging guide. Fascinating stories, little-known facts, an all around professional guide. Thanks Nancy! I hope to take your tour again.
Portland & Portlandia (A Whiter Shade of Pale)
, Mar 2022
This is a wonderful tour. I ended up with two tour guided who were so personable. It was like a great walk with a couple of friends. The highlight for me was seeing the Portlandia statue and seeing where one of the guides had seen Procal Harum perform!!
Not the downtown I was expecting
, Feb 2022
We only went around the pioneer district, which after going to other districts I feel comfortable saying is the most boring district
icon Response from Host , Feb 2022
Max, I have to say I was very surprised by your review as your feedback during the tour was that it was interesting, and our tour covered three districts: the pioneer, the cultural and the university districts. It’s a shame I can’t tailor the tour to whatever the participants that day find to be the most fascinating; we cover the same historical, cultural and architectural features in every tour. It’s helpful to reach out or inform me directly if you aren’t interested in history, our most prominent public art, and architecture so I can direct you to a different experience.
