Scenery around Downtown Portland via Secrets of Portlandia free walking tour

Secrets of Portlandia free walking tour is a tip based tour that you can join in Downtown Portland. The tour guide Erik Kennon will bring you around and show you the highlights of Portland in 90 minutes walking tour. I laughed a lot during the tour as the guide have many funny stories to share. I also felt very comfortable walking around the city after having seen so much of it in just an hour and a half. The stories were great. I never would have gotten any of that information on my own. And then after the tour, Erik helped identify other great things to do with the rest of the day.
