Arielle, our tour guide, was wonderful and well informed. Food was yummy and plentiful during the Downtown Portland Tour. The portions were bigger than in some other food tours we've gone to so you don't go hungry. The alcohol provided with three of the samples was a nice surprise. Highly recommend and we are veteran food tour attendees!

Downtown Portland Food Tour: Arielle was a charming, knowledgeable and bubbly guide. The food was fabulous and each venue was somewhere I had not been before, but will definitely try again. We loved all the stops, each with a different food & drink focus, and they were all a great showcase for the best our city has to offer. The... More

Arielle was our guide for the Division Street tour and she was fantastic, again. We had a fun afternoon discovering culinary delights at 6 unique establishments; Saint Honore Boulangerie, Ingrid’s Scandinavian Food Cart, Bollywood... More

I took took the North Mississippi tour led by Arielle. Her warm manner and smile managed to brighten up the dreary rainy day. Arielle knows her stuff, especially the comings and goings of Portland's chefs and farmers. Portions were generous, restaurants were welcoming and we had a wonderful group of both travelers and locals on the tour. I joined as... More

There were 8 of us in the group and by the end of the first visit we were chatting like old friends. The food/drink stops were... More

Come hungry! There's lots of food to eat with an emphasis on local flavors. Our guide was great and shared information about the local area. We did the Mississippi district and really enjoyed it.

We had a great afternoon eating and learning about Portland's ever evolving food and wine landscape. Ariel, our guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic, great energy! The food was nicely curated and left us full enough to skip dinner. I highly recommend this tour and would suggest you take it early in your visit so you can go back to... More
