What people are saying about Portland, Oregon

Our guide was very knowledgeable about Portland - we learned so much about the city - as much as the donuts, which we enjoyed immensely! He explained the history of the donut shops and how the flavors fit with that history. We had leftovers to take home, and loved our donut swag, which our guide personalized for us! We had a wonderful time, and highly recommend this!

Very fun and extra tasty! Very family friendly. Tried at least 11 different types of donuts. Our guides were knowledgeable, informative, and so pleasant. Even kind enough to bring donuts (my favorites on the tour) from another site not walkable.

Excellent tour guide and experience! Would absolutely recommend! Great additional insights into what to do in Portland and history of donut culture!

Trip was amazing! Pictures online seem unreal till you are actually sailing yourself and see the view for yourself amazing
