My Review

This small-group tour of Portland was really small--just me and the guide--so I got a truly individualized view of the city. (Awesome!) My guide was pleasant, engaging, knowledgeable, deeply passionate about heritage and culture, and made everything about Portland fascinating! After seeing all the quadrants of the city, from the elegant Pittock Mansion to the quirky food trucks in a neighborhood brewpub parking lot, I came to really "get" Portland. All of the neighborhood specialty restaurants (one for biscuits, one for pies, etc.), local coffee shops, innovative architecture, lovely parks, majestic evergreens and spectacular bridge-covered Willamette River were a colorful backdrop for the straightforward, unpretentious people who bring the true creative soul to this city. I appreciated the background stories and peeks into unusual places off the beaten path (like the converted elementary school that today is part hotel, part restaurant, part art gallery. An amazing place!) The half-day tour went quickly. I enjoyed my guide and consider him as much a part of my great Portland memories as the places we saw. The tour was well worth the time and money!
