  • Our tour guide, Sarah, far exceeded our expectations. She truly customizes each tour for the individual. She arrived a few minutes early at our AirBNB, and we headed over to a nice coffee shop to briefly discuss what we wanted to focus on during the tour and what we'd seen already. She quickly formed a plan of attack, and we hit the road. She was a fountain of area knowledge and kept up a steady stream of information. We asked dozens of questions which she was able to answer quickly and fully. If we stumped her and I believe that only happened once! she straight up told us she didn't know. We loved her honesty, intelligence and personality. Sarah has ruined it for any other tours in other cities that are on our possible relocation list!

  • Thank you Sarah for a great day. I really enjoyed this tour. Next week I'll be visiting Portland again together with my family. Looking forward to visit again the mexican restaurant and the donut shop which you showed me. Take care. Z
