What You Can Expect
Enjoy tea, pastries and seasonal snacks while taking in scenic views of the city and the surrounding volcanic peaks at historic Pittock Mansion. This mansion was home to influential Portland pioneers Henry and Georgiana Pittock from 1914 to 1919, and is now a city park and treasured landmark.
Next, explore the neighborhoods of Portland’s four main quadrants: Northeast, Northwest, Southeast and Southwest. Each quadrant has its own distinct feel and unique attractions including art galleries, boutiques, cafes, restaurants and performance venues.
Visit the Pearl Disctrict, Nob Hill and Hawthorne, and hear about the history of Portland’s ten well-known bridges from your guide.
You’ll also explore at least two of the following parks: Washington Park, Mt Tabor Park, McCall Waterfront Park and, depending on the season, the International Rose Test Garden. Your guide will bring the parks alive by identifying the flora and fauna.
End your tour at one of Portland’s greatest treasures, Powell’s Books, one of the largest independent bookstores in the world!
Our guide Dylan knew the city inside and out and made sure that we saw everything. Dylan was very friendly , informative , and a lot of fun. This was an excellent way to get introduced to Portland on all levels, Cultural, Historical, and even Scientific (Dylan was knowledgeable about the local wildlife, and geological characteristics of the area) . I would recommend this tour, especially as a first thing to do when arriving in the area as it would give a great introduction of the city.
This was a great introduction to the city and its different neighborhoods (districts). Our guide was very informative. Because there were only 3 of us, it was easy to converse and ask questions. It was also nice to be picked up at our hotel.
