What people are saying about Shanghai Tunnels/Portland Underground Tour
The tour and information was good though I feel the title of the tour is a bit misleading. As I recently took the Seattle underground tour (which was an outstanding underground tour) the bar was high. Unlike the Seattle underground tour (a significant portion of the tour really was underground) the Portland underground tour was primarily a street level historic tour. A smaller portion was given underground in what is basically a basement room under one building. The tour was educational, interesting, and fun, but not a true underground tour.
Interesting and fun tour, although was a little disappointed that there wasn't more actual "underground" walking. Fun tour guide, very informative. Would recommend with that one caveat and also be prepared to see lots and lots of homeless people.
An old well-preserved Portland native was our guide. Not a lot to see walking around, but the stories aren't too bad, and give a sense of history and appreciation to the place you'd not have otherwise walking around yourself.
The name of the tour is misleading as it is not an underground tour. Had the tour been named Portland Old Town Tour I would give it 5 stars. The misrepresentation is unnecessary.
I would definitely recommend this tour even though we wished there was more time underground. We saw some parts of Portland we would have never explored on our own. Thanks!
