Downtown Food Tour

Learn about Portland’s history and culture through its food on this small-group walking tour of downtown. Taste a variety of locally crafted dishes and beverages and scope out restaurants to return to later on your own. The tour is designed to take you off the beaten path and introduce you to a wide variety of dining experiences from hip and humble food carts to high-end dining.

What to Expect

Depending on the tour type and time you select at checkout, meet your guide at the appointed downtown location and begin your journey on foot.

Your itinerary varies depending on the day, but expect your guide to take you to six locations during the tour. Sample a range of dishes from some of the more upscale, established restaurants and from casual newcomers that make up Portland’s thriving food scene.

You might stop at a downtown food truck, try local craft beer, and sip Oregon wines. On the tour, you also learn some of the city’s geography and history as you stop to check out everything from handmade dumplings to fresh pasta, pork sandwiches and single-origin chocolate.

Be prepared to get a comprehensive taste of Portland and see a few sights during the 1.5-mile (2.4-km) tour, which ends near Pioneer Courthouse Square.

Not Particularly Noteable

To have so many sampling/eating opportunities, but one of the five visits was what we had expected: indistinct salad and less than table quality wine; unsatisfying food cart soup; fantastic enchilada mole and and margarita; good chocolate tastes and owner history; 2-1/4 small, ice cream...More

Great introduction to Portland food scene!

We thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon food tasting adventure. Our excellent guide, Ariel, created an excellent sampling platter from the Downtown Farmers Market. She then regaled us with stories and factoids about Portland as we made our way salmon, pasta, chocolate and cupcakes.

Loved it!

We chose Forktown Food Tours based on the TripAdvisor reviews and they were all spot on. This was an excellent choice for our entire family (that included one young adult). Our guide was fabulous telling us not only just about the local Portland food culture...More

We were guests of a Portland resident so I’m not too familiar with the area or distances. However I know she had to call and see where the meeting place would be. Apparently it varies tour to tour so that’s the first step... More

Yes the street car picks up on 11th ave and takes you to town, which isn’t far.
