Food,” and Anthony Bourdain's "No Reservations.” Get with the trend to discover some of the best-known Portland food trucks, and sample tempting tastes, from the Mayor of Portlandia to Timbers Army.

Damon was very informative and fun

We enjoyed all the food and were not able to eat dinner afterwards because we were full! Damon had a lot of information about Portland as well as the food trucks. He arranged prior to the tastings how many samples he would need for the group which allowed us to enjoy the food in a casual way! All the vendors were quite nice.

Great tour guide - food was so-so.

I enjoy food tours more when they take you to out of the way places, which is not how the food carts in Portland are situated. A few of the food offerings were outstanding, the rest were interesting but not memorable. Our guide was fantastic - very entertaining and full of good stories.

Amazing food and an amazing tour! Herb was one of the best tour guides we’ve ever had. He’s very passionate about food and also very passionate about the people that make it. He made the whole experience very memorable.
