My husband and I took this tour. We thoroughly enjoyed it. The tour was fun and the tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. The tour guide picked great food trucks to stop and sample what they were serving. It was amazing to see how many food trucks there are in Portland. We went back to one food truck the next day. We would highly recommend this tour.

The tour guide was good. Very knowledgeable about the food cart industry. Generally good choices on the foods we tasted. I thought I read that we would be sampling 6-7 different carts, which was why I specifically chose this tour. But we only tried 4 - which is the same amt everyone else offered. Would have enjoyed smaller portions and more variety.

4 star rating: Recommended August 2015

It was an enjoyable tour that gave us some background on food carts and a nice variety of items as samples. I would have liked it to be a tad longer it went a bit shorter than scheduled with another sample or two.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better April 2015

Was ok but not the best. The weird facial hair on guide was very distracting. Also only four carts tasted didn't seem a good cros section
