Phil did a great job showing us the sights. He even had a backup plan for sights that were closed due to weather

Wonderful, knowledgeable guide, who maintained great energy for three hours on a gloomy, rainy afternoon. I loved the tour, and I learned a lot about Portland.

So many bridges to cross, so many neighborhoods to see, so much to learn about this wonderful city. Yes, there are some issues that cloud the city’s reputation today, but they do not overshadow the good parts, all shown by a wonderful guide!

Tour guide was on time, knowledgable, and friendly. She was local and knew the city well. The tour of Portland City was great but going out to Oregon City and the other suburb was a waste of time with all the heavy traffic getting to them. I would spend more time visiting sites downtown and eliminate the out of town jaunts,

Visiting the Japanese gardens was one of the highlights of this tour of Portland and its surroundings. The best part of the tour was our guide Gunner, whose friendliness and enthusiasm underscored his obvious knowledge and pride as a Portlander. This tour is a must- do as a requisite orientation for anyone who is a new visitor to Portland.

My tour guide, Carrie, texted me in the morning to make sure I knew what my pick up time would be. She was right on time! I really appreciated that because there’s always that thought that you’re going to be forgotten! Before we headed out, she went through the highlights of what we’d be seeing. I really enjoyed this overall look at Portland and the surrounding neighborhoods. A bonus was Carrie was a history major, so I feel I got the super tour of tours!! I love history also, so this tour really is perfect for a quick history of how Portland became to be. I highly recommend this tour! Thank you, Carrie, for a wonderful afternoon!

Had such a great time with Steven. He really loves this city, and was able to weave in the history of the city with his own, personal stories about the city. It was a great overview of Portland. Thank you!
