I joined this tour mid way through and was really impressed with how Eric ran the tour. Not only did Eric give loads of information about Portland, he was very funny, which made this tour engaging. Very passionate about his home city.

I attended this with my sister, brother-in-law, and baby niece in May 2016, and had a great time! Erik is hilarious, so I'm surprised other people weren't laughing, but maybe they just weren't paying enough attention. Erik has a magnetic presence and speaks eloquently. Definitely...More

You don't have to contact him to take the tour. Just show up at Pioneer Courthouse Square a couple of minutes before tour time and he should be there.
