Thank you for joining us on the history tour, and that is a good reminder. Sometimes we walk on some cobble stones that can really scrape up high heals!

Portland, Past and Present

Ross, our tour guide, is very knowledgeable about the history of Portland. It’s the best tour I have ever participated in. It was a cold, rainy day, but our guide, and fellow participants pressed on and even went over time. We ended with a warm chocolate chip cookie from a local bakery. I would recommend this tour to everyone who wants to learn about Portland past and present.

We have taken lots of walking tours in our travels and this was one of the best. Our tour guide, Ross, was grit, knowledgeable, energetic, and has a good sense of humor. We enjoyed spending two+ hours with him learning about old town Portland. We highly recommend this tour and hope you get Ross as the tour guide.
