Great way to go around the city and exercise at the same time, and on a bike you can cover a bigger area. We did go everywhere on both sides of the river.
We loved the tour. It was a great way to be introduced to Portland. We were surprised when we return via the opposite side of the river. We received lots of information and had a fun time.
The tour was perfect!!! We were hesitant booking at first because we had never done one before but it was one of the best things we did on our trip to Portland. Our guide Evan made it even better... So knowledgeable about the area! So much fun, highly recommended!
So great! My guide was friendly and informed. A leisurely pace was maintained throughout. She was really fantastic. I went alone and met some great travelers as well.
My daughter and I spent our first morning in Portland cruising through downtown via bike. Our tour guide, Noah, tailored the information about the city around our interests (history, art, books) and did an excellent job of helping us get the "lay of the land" so we would be comfortable exploring during the remainder of our visit. He even provided a handy (and the by the end of the trip, well worn) map of the city with notes of where we had traveled and what we had expressed particular interest in exploring later.
The tour is a perfect way to start your visit to the city of Portland and it doesn't matter if you ride bikes frequently (my daughter) or haven't been on a bike in years (me). We had a wonderful time and we highly recommend this tour.
This was my first time ever visiting Portland and this bike tour was my lifesaver! Traveling around was so much easier because the bike tour was very comprehensive and helped me get an idea of where I was and how to get where I wanted to go as I explored the city after my tour. Our tour guide, Melanie, was very knowledgeable and was able to answer questions regarding not only the history of the town, but give tips on fave places, unique fun facts, and was attentive to the requests of our tour group. If you plan on exploring Downtown Portland for the day, I highly suggest doing the morning bike tour first, and then plan the rest of your day after getting a better idea of the city layout.
Excellent tour. Well-worth it. Well-paced and gave a complete overview of the city. The tour guide (Sarah) was fantastic. Extremely knowledgable with an engaging personality. Whereas you might tune out other guides who drone on, you wanted to listen to what Sarah had to say. The bikes were comfortable, easy to use and changing speeds was effortless.
Our tour guide, Sarah, was excellent. She was knowledgeable about Portland and she had a great sense of humor. The bikes were comfortable and easy to ride. We got a great view of the city and she gave us some interesting information about the place as well as insider tips on food and drink. However, the tour was way too slow, we stopped much too frequently. We also rode on the sidewalks which is a huge NO-NO in my book.
The weather was great, our guide was great and we enjoyed the tour very much. Could have had more cycling and less stopping. But we learned lot about Portland. Recommended!
