If you would like to see the many sides of Portland and try the delicious food cart fair this is the tour. We had a great time, Dustin was our host and was very knowledgeable about the rich history of Portland, and his beard was magnificent. Anyways, we had the greatest time 10/10 recommend. P.s. my 67 yo mother was able to do it!
Fun and tasty

It was so much fun to ride around town and try different food carts. The food was delicious. I highly recommend this to anyone
Biking in the snow

It actually snowed in Portland the night before our tour and we were afraid they’d cancel on us. They didn’t and showed up ready for us. Our tour guide, Dustin, was fun and energetic and had a great personality. He was very patient as there were some hills that took me a little longer than everyone else. Our guide also gave us some history on the city. It was a great introduction to a city I had never visited before.
Fun

Fun Biking, Bad Food Tour
JRichard_R, Sep 2022
We enjoyed the biking part of our “food” tour. Brian, our guide was very informative. However, we’ve been on many food tours and this was definitely the worst!! Our first stop was a food cart that only had vegan food. We are not vegan and we were the only ones on this tour. ( half a vegan egg sandwich and some lumpy strips of vegan French toast) See picture. We asked about stopping for coffee and Brian said that wasn’t included, even though it was advertised as being our first stop. Our 2nd stop was Matt’s BBQ. We had a mediocre taco there.( see picture) We were supposed to go to a place for wings and fries, but they had no potatoes, so we opted for a donut instead. That was the total extent of our food tour.
Response from Host, Sep 2022
Richard, I'm so glad you enjoyed the biking! We were concerned about your group's ability to enjoy as there was so much trepidation getting ready for the ride, we consider that a victory. And we're sorry you didn't enjoy vegan food which we do indeed offer to people regardless of whether or not they typically choose a vegan lifestyle. You are the first of our guests not to like the food there; it's typically one of the big wins for us, as is Matt's BBQ Tacos, which was Bon Appetit's pick for one of the 10 best new restaurants of 2019. As a side note, it's worth asking if you've felt unwell recently. We have had a few friends and family report finding food uninspiring after or during a viral infection. Given that you are the first one to have ever called those two stops "mediocre," I wonder if that was what happened.
Perfectly fun and delicious
Jessie_R, Aug 2020
Really great tour and highly recommend it. I’ve been to Portland many times, but this was such a unique and fun way to explore and eat some delicious food. Biking was enjoyable and even felt good between eating.

Good ride, great food!
Leigh_M, Mar 2022
Dustin was an amazing tour guide/host. He was personable and fun. We all had great conversation, a good bike ride and amazing food. Highly suggest trying this experience!
Great experience. Would recommend
J_D, May 2022
Dustin was a great guide. Very energetic and easy to get along with. The groups are small. There were only 2 of us, but that may be because it's early May and we took the morning tour. You go to 3 food trucks and 1 bonus truck if there's time. The biking was fine for me, a bit tiring for my girlfriend, but overall extremely manageable. The pork belly and vegan breakfast sandwiches were excellent. The Hawaiian/korean fusion was decisively average. The ice cream shop was fantastic. It would be nice to have a few more stops and a bit less food per stop. We both ended up quite full after the tour. But there are so many food trucks in Portland, having 3 trucks in 3 hours seems a bit sparsely spaced. Overall, this was very very good. Would recommend 100%.
You'll be glad you took this tour

A great tour! This was an excellent way to spend our first day in Oregon. Portland is possibly the most bike-friendly city in the U.S., and we felt totally safe cruising through Southeast Portland on comfy and well-maintained bikes. In addition to four amazing food stops, we rode through the beautiful, tree-lined streets of Ladd's Addition and saw gorgeous homes and learned interesting history from our great local guide Dustin. We explored a dreamy neighborhood rose garden and learned about the city's interesting rose culture. And the food was phenomenal! Local coffee, French pastries, and heavenly and substantial eats from two creative cuisine food trucks - all were local gems we would not have found on our own. After a very enjoyable three hours of great food, good company, and light exercise in a truly beautiful city, we were full and happy.
Great time!
Sandy_B, Dec 2021
Had a great time - biking around Portland was very fun and a great way to see different neighborhoods. Also good to get some exercise in between the food carts. Would highly recommend!

Great way to see Portland!!
Ann_L, Jul 2022
Excellent time on the bike tour! Our Guides were so fun. We loved riding around the neighborhoods and checking out the food trucks.
Great tour!
Cristie_M, Jun 2022
We highly recommend this tour! Dustin our tour guide was terrific. He took us biking through some beautiful neighborhoods and we ate some delicious food. We only wish we had taken this tour the beginning of our trip versus the end because Dustin helped us understand Portland and it’s layout and regions. This would have been so helpful in the beginning of our trip. We went to some great food truck pods which we would never have found on our own. We would have loved to return to them if we were staying. Fun tour!
Response from Host, Jun 2022
Thanks so much for your insightful review! We agree, a bike tour -- especially a food cart bike tour -- is so great to help you know what the best things are to eat, see and do throughout your time here! Please come back and see us :)
Our tour guide Dustin was informative, fun and professional.
Nadine_S, Sep 2021
Hearing some Portland history. Especially enjoyed learning about the rose garden. Each of the food stops were yummy and we experienced a variety of foods and tastes.
