There were 7 other people on our tour but there were no space issues at all. The van was clean, modern and comfortable. Our guide was excellent. Unfortunately, I can't remember his name but he said that he was a manager at the company and he really knew his stuff. Being born and raised in Portland, he was very knowledgable about the neighborhoods and history of the area. It was evident that he loves Portland which definitely makes it a great job for him. The weather was beautiful and we had a few minutes to walk through the Rose Garden at Washington Park. We we came back to the van, there were pastries and Jasmine tea waiting for us. I would highly recommend this tour before driving around Portland on your own. We did and we were able to return to the points of interest that we had seen and heard about on the tour afterward. Would definitely this tour even to portland residents!
We were the only ones on the tour so of course we had a very private one. We were pleased with our driver/narrator Jeff and had a great time during the tour all over Portland. We would recommend it to others if we knew someone was going to Portland. Thanks for the opportunity. Good job, Jeff.

We had an awesome experience touring Portland with Dillon!
We were the only two on a Sunday morning tour.
We visited all the beautiful spots and learned a lot of Portland History.
Sunday was a great day to tour the city. A lot less traffic on the roadway.
Excellent way to familiarize yourself with the City. Great information from the guide.
We were very satisfied with our tour of Portland. Our guide was knowledgeable, friendly, well spoken and went out of his way to make everyone comfortable. He seemed equally knowledgeable about roses and the neighborhood known as little Mississippi. I would highly recommend the tour even if you think you have seen Portland before. The tour took us to all parts of the city and included but went well beyond the standard tourist points. The van was comfortable, we were picked up at our hotel at the stated time. Our guide even called to confirm where and when he would pick us up. The locations picked were varied and resulted in us going back to some neighborhoods we never would have found and doing some exploring on our own. The tea and cookies was a nice touch. We found the half day tour just right. Properly priced and very professional. Well done. We were two couples around 70 years old. The small group concept added greatly to the enjoyment of the tour. Could not have been better. So glad we took the tour.
This tour was great! The guide was very friendly, articulate and gave a truly personal description of the city. It was not at all a rehearsed and scripted as I've experienced in the past.
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.
If you want to get the most out of your trip to Portland, you really need a tour of the city. This is something you can't do on your own, even with a car and a guidebook. Our guide, Kelsey, drove us around and provided us with information on each part of the city. As a native Portlandian with inside knowledge on the various neighbourhoods and history of the city, she gave an excellent tour and provided us with a first class look and, ultimately, great appreciation of the city and its people.
Informative guide, comfortable transportation. Overall very enjoyable.
No-one shoud visit Portland for the first time without taking this tour. Jeff presents the city in a way that my wife and I have never experienced when taking similar type tours in other cities. He does not just drive around town pointing out sights and landmarks. He goes much further by explaining the history and psyche of the people. He also explains how the City's past and contemplated urban planning policies impact the day to day lives of its residents. This tour provides full value and is most enjoyable and informative.
It was great tour. Our tour guide was the best. He went above and beyond to make sure we had a great time.
Absolutely fabulous and very informative. This was a girls day trip. We had an awesome time and out tour guide was great. Well worth the money.
Our guide, Jeff, was great - he was from Portland and knew the city and the general area very well and could answer all questions articulately. Jeff offered coffee and pastry - I suggest he take his guests to one of Portland's many great cafe's (and charge another $5 if necessary).
