Our tour guide, Gunner, was excellent not only imparting the history and background of Portland, but doing so in a witty and thoroughly enjoyable way. He answered all of our many questions. A terrific morning walk.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

Niles did a fabulous tour --just two of us--walking almost non stop! We did take a break at the Benson Hotel and enjoyed looking at all the lovely wood décor and the gorgeous fire place. I know so much more about the history of this progress city thanks to him.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

Gunnar was a great tour guide, very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. The local tour company was very flexible and accomodating - the scheduled tour guide actually broke their ankle the night before, but they were able to find Gunnar as a replacement and reschedule with us for later in the day, which worked out great. This did make his food recommendations less useful since we'd already eaten, but he pointed out a lot of interesting architecture and historical information as well. Definitely recommended, great value for the price!

Booking of the tour was extremely easy considering we just googled it minutes before booking. Tour guide was fun and very informative. It indeed was a couple hours well spent. Wish we had done the tour at the beginning of our trip instead of the end. We now have a list of things of do for our next trip to Portland.
