I went on the Mississippi Tour yesterday and thorougly enjoyed it. Amy, our tour guide, did a really great job and I think she's a skilled guide. I like the historical elements she wove into the tour in addition to an informed understanding of the various businesses we visited. Its crazy how fast 3 hours goes by. I also enjoyed... More

My friends and I just finished an unforgettable tour of North Mississippi with tour guide Marissa. Wow! I learned so much, even after having lived in PDX for 10+ years. A tip for the first-timers: Come hungry! The servings were generous at every stop along the way and the walk between destinations is just a couple blocks (not enough to... More

Went on the Sunday tour on North Mississippi. I'm glad I only had a protein shake for breakfast, because I was stuffed after this tour. We had six different stops ranging from thai, food truck, cocktails, and dessert. Marissa was an awesome tour guide and I left knowing a lot about the history of the neighborhood and the eateries. I... More

Heidi was an amazing guide for our group. She managed 16 adults like a pro, giving us each individual attention. The food selections had a perfect amount of variety (from Thai to burgers to interesting cocktails) and the sequencing was very balanced - most heartier things were in the beginning and we had stops for drinks or other things at...

Our family (including one child, one teen) had a delightful 3 hour food tour with Heidi, the proprietor and Melissa, one of the newest members of the company's team. Our tour focused on an area called "Slabtown" or NW 23rd. Great welcome; warm. Knowledgeable. Great choice of establishments, including Besaw's, one of the oldest restaurants in Portland, Bull Run Distilling... More

As a surprise for my wife (we are both amateur foodies here in the Portland area) booked a tour with Forktown for their Downtown/Pearl District route. Heidi, the owner, was our guide - she is amazing. Not only did she treat us to a fantastic tour of wonderful eateries, including a surprisingly delicious food cart stop, she also bestowed a... More

Did the downtown and pearl district tour. It was a good tour but I like their Mississippi tour better. Obviously have used them before and think their tour, food, and information is spot on.
