Overview

Portland Walking Tours’ fun and award-winning events explore the excitement, history, food, architecture, neighborhoods, bridges, parks, fountains, artwork, and just plain weird places in Portland Oregon. Tours include the award-winning “Best of Portland,” showcasing what makes Portland such a fabulous place to live and visit (daily, 10 AM and 2 PM); our scandalous “Underground Portland,” aka "the worst of Portland," revealing both the physical and metaphorical subterranean story of Portland's sordid past; the eerie “Beyond Bizarre”, a hands-on exploration of Portland's paranormal, using real ghost-hunting equipment as seen on shows like "Ghost Adventurer" (TM) and "Paranormal State" (TM); our delicious “Epicurean Excursion” walking tour, a tasty immersion into Portland's amazing culinary "slow food" scene; our indulgent “Chocolate Decadence Tour," exploring and sampling chocolate in its many solid and liquid forms, from bean to bar and everything in between; "Roses Gone Wild!", which dishes the dirt on Portland's famous International Rose Test Gardens; and "Flavor Street," where you taste the best of Portland's incredible food cart scene - and skip the rest.

Our fabulous tour guide Erich entertained us with a lively tour of Portland and shared some of its nefarious past and historical lore. He was great. Ask for his tour.

Hi Tiffany A! We are sorry you didn't enjoy your recent Beyond Bizarre tour. Unfortunately, the weather "gods" don't always cooperate in Oregon... especially in December. Our two winter weather options here in Portland are usually, 1) warm(ish) and wet, or 2) cold, but dry....More

An introduction to the quirkiness that is Portland. Almost entirely outside, it takes you from the City Center to the Waterfront. So put on your walking shoes and dress for whatever is the weather! You learn some history and many 'back stories' that have shaped...More
