Thank you for joining us on the history tour, and that is a good reminder. Sometimes we walk on some cobble stones that can really scrape up high heals!
Portland, Past and Present
Katherine_G, Oct 2021
Ross, our tour guide, is very knowledgeable about the history of Portland. It’s the best tour I have ever participated in. It was a cold, rainy day, but our guide, and fellow participants pressed on and even went over time. We ended with a warm chocolate chip cookie from a local bakery. I would recommend this tour to everyone who wants to learn about Portland past and present.
Response from Host, Oct 2021
We're happy that you fully enjoyed the tour despite the rain! We appreciate your review, and hope you visit us in Portland again soon.
