I am so glad I signed up to join this tour! It’s a great way to see and experience Portland, I have learned so much, and highly recommend this especially if you are traveling solo — great way to sightsee, have some company, and meet new people. Our tour guide, Damon, was the nicest and the best! 100% recommend.

The guide, Marcus, is very knowledgeable. Fun guy to be around. We had a lot of fun. We got one morning tour and ended up getting a 2nd one for the afternoon! Would definitely do more tours with him and I plan on just that!

Tour started on time. Meeting point was centrally located. Tour took us all over Portland and pointed out all the various sites as well as historical info. about the city.
