Portland’s Pearl: An Epicurean Oasis
A unique and delicious walking tour where you’ll taste the foods, sip the drinks, meet some artisans & vendors in their shops – while exploring the lively Pearl District. If you watch the Food Network or consider yourself a "foodie," this is the adventure for you. On recent tours, we have sampled over 25 food and drink items in just over 3.5 hours. And it’s not just about hitting those numbers; it’s all about slowing down and understanding what makes up the food that we cherish.
The 10:00 a.m. tour and 2:00 p.m. tour differ in the places they visit plus we change the tour seasonally to emphasize the best this region has to offer. No matter what time you join us, we always feature the best of Oregon–trust us to deliver the best pinot noir wines, local produce, cheeses, teas, mustards, jams and jellies, beer, pizza, coffees, sorbettos and gelatos, chocolates, artisan breads and breakfast pastries, and much more. We recommend that you only have a light breakfast or lunch before the tour!
Even though we serve dozens of tastes & sips on each tour, it’s not about volume. Along the way, you’ll achieve a diploma of culinary knowledge as you learn about local goods, sustainable practices, and the truth behind organic products. Most important, we’ll slow you down and guide you experience the smells, textures, tastes, after-tastes that every item brings. You’ll have so much fun, you’ll forget you’re leaning something.
Note: Do not wear open-toed shoes to this tour as we will be in places where a brewer, baker, or chef might give you the evil eye. This tour regularly sells out (since each group is limited in size), so buy your tickets now.
