  • A great way to explore Portland. Enjoyed the historical information.

  • Jesse was our guide today and he was great! We started at the bike shop to get our bikes and fittings and went on to bike through various areas/districts of the town. I've been on plenty bike tours before and this one doesn't really require a certain level of fitness as there were frequent stops to rest and listen to history and story telling. I personally enjoy bike tours so I can cover a lot of ground per se while getting the interesting city/history insight along the way. And for a 3 hour tour I learned and saw plenty. Usually I take bike tours on the start of my trip to help me get an idea of where I want to focus the rest of the trip on but was not able to schedule it in till the day of leaving this time around. And with all the walking and exploring we already did prior to this bike tour, still saw and learned new things : There is a 15 minute portion where we can break up and explore a part of town for donuts, coffee, etc before moving onto the next spot. If you are looking for a work out and/or not so interested in learning about the city/history then you might want to look at another tour since you might feel the pace a tad slow.

  • Justin and Gannon were terrific guides! They kept the tour interesting, well-paced, safe, and fun! The bikes were perfect for urban riding having wide tires, foam-padded seats and easy gears. Highly recommend this tour!!!

  • Loved it. Less interested in the history personally . I to ride and see more stuff instead. But I got a great grasp of the area. Lots of fun. She was great.

  • Great tour. Really nice way to see the city. The guide was excellent, providing lots of information on the city.

  • Great way to go around the city and exercise at the same time, and on a bike you can cover a bigger area. We did go everywhere on both sides of the river.

  • Our tour guide, Sarah, was excellent. She was knowledgeable about Portland and she had a great sense of humor. The bikes were comfortable and easy to ride. We got a great view of the city and she gave us some interesting information about the place as well as insider tips on food and drink. However, the tour was way too slow, we stopped much too frequently. We also rode on the sidewalks which is a huge NO-NO in my book.

  • We loved the tour. It was a great way to be introduced to Portland. We were surprised when we return via the opposite side of the river. We received lots of information and had a fun time.

  • The weather was great, our guide was great and we enjoyed the tour very much. Could have had more cycling and less stopping. But we learned lot about Portland. Recommended!

  • Well done and very efficient operation
