HEY. Do you want to see Portland through the eyes of its BIGGEST FAN? Are you curious about communities that prioritize PEOPLE, SUSTAINABILITY, and CHEAP CRAFT BEERS? Are you ready to embark on an ALL YOU CAN PORTLAND BUFFET through a walking tour featuring WEIRD BARS and LOCAL INTERACTIONS? Then I’ve got the adventure for you: THIS TOUR. This walking tour prioritizes interacting with the locals where the locals go. I show you the soul of Portland by immersing you in its people. This means exploring neighborhood districts, drinking taps from neighborhood breweries, and getting the neighborhood perspective by interacting with the people who live here. By the end of the walking tour, we’ll have made a mildly-inebriated adventure from seeing why the people of Portland are the attraction of the city. People who find this tour meaningful: 1. People who prefer to explore with welcoming friends rather than alone. 2. People who prefer a Drink, Eat, Drink night rather than a Drink, Drink, Drink night. 3. People who enjoy open-minded discussions and appreciate collecting new perspectives. 4. People with no time to grow roots in the city, but want to know where they'd hang out if they lived here.

There was a time that I volunteered to do tours for my local hostel. Why? Because everyone who travels is taking the time to celebrate being alive, and who doesn't want to be around that level of gratitude? And I was already telling any friend who'd listen how freaking awesome this city of ours was! So after an introspective smoking session, I recognized I was already both elements of a tour guide - befriends travelers, and talks about the good vibes of the area. Then I thought, Screw it! Why not see if I could pay my rent with this?
One McMenamins Draft Beer!
Please be prepared to walk two miles on sidewalk. We will not be returning to our starting location. We'll journey into the epicenter of Portland's spirit: the neighborhood culture!
