Dugan, our tour guide, really knows his Portland history. He provided lots of information but also gave us plenty of opportunity to ask questions about almost anything related to the city and the state. It was great way to start our visit of the area. It was a very good value for the cost. We learned a lot!

Dugan related important and interesting aspects of Portland's history as we walked to landmarks in the city. His anecdotes and occasional "dad" jokes kept us engaged. He's a very knowledgeable guy with a good sense of humor.
