Full description
Welcome to the perfect foodie tour! Join this tour and find out why Portland has become a go-to destination for people who love to eat.

The tour typically visits between 7 and 9 different local vendors and artisan producers in under 3.5 hours. And since the tours are offered daily at 10:00 and again at 14:00, and feature completely different vendors and producers, many guests enjoy taking both to get a full-day experience of the Portland's culinary culture.

But no matter which tour you choose, this epicurean excursion will expose you to a variety of flavors,  aromas, textures, colors and cuisines. The dishes change regularly, but always sample from the best local artisan items that Oregon has to offer.

While you are savoring the great cuisines, you will also be earning an honorary diploma of culinary knowledge as you experience first hand the special locavore philosophy that is driving Portland's exciting food scene.
  • Tastings at 7 to 9 different culinary hot spots
  • Access to the master chefs at various culinary hot spots
  • Knowledgeable tour guide

We have done food tours all over the world and this was one of the best. Our guide HERB Spice was very knowledgeable and had a passion for food. He was extremely knowledgeable about the Portland food scene past and present. A great way to get a feel for the city and it’s food. We stopped at 9 completely different places from food trucks to brick and mortar restaurants

Guide, and guides-in-training, we're tremendously personable and knowledgeable. We enjoyed the diversity of food choices. Sample sizes were perfect and worth the price of the tour. We would recommend amending the description to say "come hungry but not famished" as we ate breakfast before the tour and was so stuffed by the end of it that we were uncomfortable! Everything they gave us was so good, we had a difficult time not eating it! ☺️
