Your 3-hour tour starts with pickup up from your central Portland hotel. Choose a morning or afternoon start — either is a great time for doughnuts and coffee in Portland! First stop is Voodoo Doughnuts, famous for its over-the-top doughnut design, snappy flavors and home of the beloved Bacon Maple Bar. Don’t worry, they discontinued their controversial Pepto Bismol and Nyquil doughnuts years ago! Afterward, head to an iconic Portlandia cafe for a complimentary third-wave coffee (with a lesson in boutique coffee from your guide) served by ’artisan’ baristas.

Tap into your guide’s wealth of local knowledge for tips on food hotspots, breweries, music venues and more. Find out where to get a whiskey with your mustache trim, a custom-made bow tie or quirky handmade art. Stroll along hip Mississippi Avenue for a visit to Land, the shop and birthplace of the Portlandia mantra "put a bird on it". Afterward, visit the Mississippi food cart pod where the episode "Stu’s Stews" was filmed, and then nosh on some Asian fusion tacos, barbecue or an egg sandwich.

Continue your scene-spotting tour throughout Killingsworth Street, the Alberta Arts District and the posh historic Laurelhurst neighborhood. Along the way, stop at In Other Words Feminist Community Center, the inspiration for the show's Feminist Bookstore.

Conclude your tour with a visit to Vera Katz Esplanade, the filming location for Portlandia’s opening "Dream of the ‘90s" scene, and onto the featured Portlandia sculpture that crowns the Portland Building. Relax as your guide offers colorful commentary on the return trip to your pickup point.

The tour guide was excellent. Great way to see all the different neighborhoods and find out some of the behind the scenes info about Portlandia. We even stopped for coffee at Coava where Jerry Seinfeld and Fred Armisen went on Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee - because I was a Seinfeld fan - and the only one on the tour that day. It was a rainy Thursday in January, but the tour was the highlight of my visit to Portland.

This was fun. I have not watched the program and was at a disadvantage because of that....however, the guide did his best to help get me up to speed. I would liked to have had a little more explanation...

Excellent, excellent! We were ready for something different, and different and fascinating we got from our very knowlegable and friendly guide. We especially enjoyed Hippo Hardware, the wierd Ace Hotel, and the free Voodoo doughnut.

Really good overall! Enjoyed going to the less crowded Voodoo Doughnuts, exploring Mississippi Avenue and seeing the famous bookstore! Wish we had had more time to see specific houses used in the show. We did have a little glitch with having to get moved from the 9AM tour to the 2PM tour due to lack of participants. Triple confirm your pick-up spot with the dispatch person on the phone to make sure it works with the tour guide too. The guide wasn't pleased with where or when she had told us to meet him.
