Discover All of Portland on Foot, In 2 hours

This two hour walking tour covers much of historic Portland. In addition to the Old Port area, the tour route includes the Arts District and Portland's working waterfront. You'll learn Portland's colorful past, and also the present: the vibrant music and arts scene and the restaurants that make Portland "America's Foodiest Small Town", according to Bon Appétit magazine. The discussion will also stray into craft beer.


See tour description for locations and sequence. Traffic and weather may slightly affect the trip duration. I am happy to make adjustments based on your schedule and/or interests, simply let me know upon booking.

Pete did a great job of introducing us to Portland. Very knowledgeable in the city's history and heritage, and his friendly personality made him very easy to talk to, and interact with.
