From Sordid Scandals to Savory Snacks, Portland Walking Tours Kicks-off 2007 Season April 1

Following the most successful tour season to-date, Portland Walking Tours is back with a series of walks offering a guided glimpse of Portland, Ore. The tours were voted “Best City Tours” by Citysearch.com this year and highlight the real inside scoop and behind-the-scenes peeks at life in the Rose City. From culture fiends and architecture buffs to wine lovers and foodies, the 2007 tour offerings appeal to visitors and natives alike.

  • Best of Portland – Sometimes referred to by fans as the “Portland 101″ tour, this walk explores the city’s art and architecture, as well as issues of livability, transit and Portland culture. The tour route works its way through the downtown shopping hub, the shady elm trees of the Park Blocks and ends with a stroll along the waterfront.
  • Underground Portland – A treat for lovers of all things sinister – crime, scandal with seedy, seamy, unsavory characters – the Underground Portland tour winds through Old Town, exposing the sordid side of the fair city of Portland. In the end, walkers are led beneath the floorboards to check out entrances to the legendary “Shanghai Tunnels” and explore the dark underbelly of the city.
  • Epicurean Excursion -This culinary journey through the Pearl District leads walkers behind-the-scenes to taste, sip and savor some of our city’s finest flavors. From the award-winning Bridgeport Brewery to fresh, local ingredients in the back room of the Pearl Bakery, the Epicurean Excursion is the perfect way to get a “taste” of Portland.
