Learn about Portland’s history and culture through its food on this small-group walking tour of downtown. Taste a variety of locally crafted dishes and beverages and scope out restaurants to return to later on your own. The tour is designed to take you off the beaten path and introduce you to a wide variety of dining experiences from hip and humble food carts to high-end dining.
Depending on the tour type and time you select at checkout, meet your guide at the appointed downtown location and begin your journey on foot.
