About Positively Portland Walking Tours

Exploring the History, Architecture and Culture of Portland

Explore the architecture, history and culture of Portland and environs with architectural historian Eric Wheeler. These walking tours feature downtown Portland and the surrounding historic neighborhoods as well as other communities in the greater Portland area.

Eric’s tours are designed for new arrivals, visitors and long-time Portland residents. The easy walking pace is designed to allow plenty of opportunity to see the sites, hear the guide and engage socially with other participants. This is a Meetup after all!

The tours typically meet and end at a restaurant, pub or coffee shop, to allow for optional social time with the group before or after the tour. There is a fee for these researched and guided walking tours. Typically $15 per tour.
