Had a wonderful afternoon walking through Portland downtown and listening to tales from a local. Appreciated all the beautiful murals and the history behind them. We also got to hear about the history of the city and nuggets about the architectural history. Would definitely do this again .

I am a native Oregonian. I love our city. It was really great to have another perspective and some more stories to go along with our history. Our guide was very enthusiastic and passionate about the love of our city and I appreciated that. She answered all the questions people had and had great stories to add. I would highly recommend doing this whether you live here or are just visiting.

Nancy was a great tour guide. She was interesting, funny and knowledgeable about all aspects of our 2-hour art and architecture tour of Portland. She told us the history of and highs and lows in modern day Portland while pointing out all the quirky aspects of the city. We saw the Portland Penny! We would highly recommend this walking tour.

Our guide Nancy was very knowledgeable and bright out a lot of interesting little known facts about the history of Portland. She also talked about present day issues that were relevant. I think anyone visiting Portland for the first time should take this tour to get a good orientation of the central city.

Political commentary
Marie_N
, Jul 2022
Lots of great information, but one of the guides was hard to hear while she talked and walked ahead of the group. Also, many of the comments were highly politicized and could be very off putting if you don't identify with all of their strong views.

Highly recommended!

Did not provide introduction to Portland
Marina_D
, Jun 2022
The tour did not give the overview of Portland, we were walking around just 1 block for 2 hours. The tour guide had a very strong political opinion that was quite offensive if you disagree with her point of view.
icon Response from Host , Jun 2022
Marina, one thing we encounter when we discuss the history of a state like Oregon is a history both of radical activism and of decisions by state and local governments that we can, with a modern lens, see as harmful to both the land and the people that occupy it. Our introduction to Portland is an introduction to all of that: and when it comes to historical stories, certainly the choice of which stories to tell can feel political, but the stories themselves are not. I am sorry you are offended by our history; we are too, sometimes. Your tour did not circle one block for 2 hours. It is true that we start and end our tour at points that are about a block distant. It was about 1.5 miles, or about 2.5 kilometers.
