Summary: good tour; value added
I have done many free walking tours in the past 2 years throughout Europe and the US.
My wife and I feel Erik did a good job of demonstrating why the Free Walking Tour Concept makes sense: he worked for...More
This was such a great tour and host Eric made it really enjoyable, despite it pouring and being absolutely freezing. Eric is knowledgable, hospitable, interesting and easy to chat to. We had only arrived in Portland the night before and coming from Australia knew very...More
Although the day we went was pretty crowded, the tour guide was well organized and and kept us all together so that no one missed any of this fun information. I would have enjoyed a bit less time at each stop for the sake of...More
Eric’s free city tour was a great way to start our trip.. Hes funny and entertaining. He’s been a tour guide in different cities around the world so he knows what he’s doing. He’s also from Portland who loves his town and enjoys what he...More

Went on this topur with Eric while in Portland. Lots of stories. Not a lot of walking and very informative. Eric is fun and knowledgeable. Ends at worlds smallest park where a legendary leprachan lives. The 2 hour tour goes fast.
My family with 12 & 14 year olds were kept entertained and informed for just over 2 hours. We recommend this tour, for a bit of history, info on Portland and tips. Just had a fantastic meal at Screen Door- as recommended by Eric.
This is a nice walking tour which really isn't much of a walk. The first 35 minutes were spent standing at the Pioneer Square listening to Eric's stories and history of the square. While it was interesting and entertaining it got rather boring after the...More
This guy is EXCELLENT!! incredibly knowledgeable and very interesting. He will keep your attention and knows all the details. I know it is free, but we tipped him $60 and feel we should have tipped him more.
I really liked this tour. Eric was engaged, talked at the right speed for me, It was informative: we were laughing and learning all the way. We stopped about 5 or 6 times to hear some interesting cultural or historic story or two over the...More
