My husband and I really enjoyed the Mississippi Avenue food tour. We have been living in Portland for about eight months, but we hadn't tried any restaurants on Mississippi yet. The tour was a great way for us to experience the neighborhood and learn about the history, sustainability, and locally sourced ingredients from each of our stops. Ahna, our tour guide, was great - friendly and very knowledgeable. We look forward to coming back to each of the stops we made along the tour. If you are a visitor, local, or newcomer and you're thinking about trying a Forktown Food Tour, do it! You won't be disappointed.

Mom and I took the SE Division food tour with Forktown and had a wonderful time. Heidi was a fantastic guide - friendly, accommodating, and very knowledgeable. She is the best kind of tour guide who has in-depth knowledge to answer questions and provide context. She knows Portland intimately and shared some great stories with us about the city and those who are turning it into a culinary urban leader. All the food we sampled on the tour was delicious and unique. I highly recommend Forktown!!

From Thai food to cocktails to food trucks, this was an all around great experience. After I finished the tour I asked myself...

Was the food excellent? Oh yes!

Was the tour guide knowledgeable, funny and personable? Yeah she was!

This was such a fun 3 hours, tasting food, getting great history lessons, meeting new people and walking the city.

I'd highly recommend this tour!

We took the Mississippi Ave Tour and loved it. Great tour guide and wonderful food, come hungry, because you do eat a lot! Very informative and fun. Whether you are visiting Portland or a local, we highly recommend it. Our tour had 7pp and four were local and three visitors. Having the locals made it even richer and more informative!

My husband booked this. He is huge fan of the food cart. Loved everything about it. From the pairing of food and drinks to the casual atmosphere. I especially enjoyed the guide and we were given plenty of time to enjoy each location.
