On tour, you may sample local craft beer, seasonal small plates, cocktails, tiny artisan cookies, micro-batch coffee, food cart goodness, and more, made with the ingredients & creativity that Oregon is famous for. You'll get the stories behind the tastes with your expert culinary guide. We offer tours in three of the city's greatest neighborhoods! Alphabet District Tour: Friday afternoons.

We have taken numerous walking food tours in other towns we’ve visited. These others have been filled with lots of history including former building owners and lore from the past. Our tour guide did not give us much in the way of history or folk lore. Food: Very ordinary and not delicious. The “farm-to-table” restaurant” was pretty much tasteless. I... More

We recently took the North Mississippi Avenue food tour with Ariel. She was a great guide and we really enjoyed the craft cocktails at Sidecar and gourmet ice cream sandwiches at Ruby Jewel in particular. Great way to get to know a Portland neighborhood.

Mississippi Tour was informative and delicious! Lots of history about the neighborhood and the food and drinks were great. Thank you Arielle for a great tour! This is an excellent activity if you have limited time in the city.

Ariel was a great tour guide! Knowledgeable, upbeat and lots of fun. We had such a delicious time at the 6 different places we sampled, we were all fat and sassy by the end of the tour, hugging each other and leaving with great memories of the afternoon. Highly recommend!

We got lucky and went on a day where there were only 6 people. My wife and I found the tour an incredible value with a little history thrown in. The food was very diverse and included a food Stand with Korean food. Great pork sandwich, incredible chocolates(wife bought 80 dollars worth) cupcakes a salad, beer, wine, it was really... More

I hope whom ever makes the choices for the Downtown Portland Tour reads this review. This was my eighth food tour (have done them all over the world). When it comes to tours there were a couple things done right, mostly just okay and one thing that drives me crazy. Let me tell you my frustration first. The Chocolate Shop... More

I've taken the same tour a few years ago, but everything is updated and even more professional and-well organized than before. The guide was great, the food was amazing, and they even managed to give my vegan sister (and the other vegetarians in the group) plenty to eat and drink. Don't hesitate to book with your family, even if they... More

Our tour guide was very sweet and passionate about where she brought us. It wasn't a lot of food, mostly alcohol, and there were just too many people on the tour. I would be willing to pay more to have fewer than 10 people on the tour. I also feel that the Mississippi Ave tour is really not appropriate for... More

First and foremost, Arielle was a great guide! I disagree with a previous reviewer about the cost of the tour was out of line with the type of foods we sampled. My travelling companion and I agreed it was a perfect cross-section of all the Portland food scene has to offer, from fine dining to food carts, artisanal fare, and... More
