Neighborhood Tour: Walk Through Time

Overview (click here to view)

Step back through over 150 years of history! "A Walk Through Time" whisks you away to the earliest days of Portland. This private/group walking tour features a lot of exquisite architecture, including the oldest buildings still standing in Portland, and a unique five-sided building. We'll walk through today's Chinatown, which used to be called Little Tokyo, and pass by Portland's world-famous Chinese Classical Garden.

Our favorite stop along this walking tour is the immense Chinatown gate with its two lions, five roofs and 78 dragons.
