This May 2023, First Nature Tours hosted "Portland's Progressive Palate" Tour at the Oregon Governor’s Conference “Night Out”.

Portland has a history of breaking the rules, whether it’s by layouing out the city in 5 “quadrants” or slapping bacon on top of a doughnut. From its onset this city has bucked tradition, and nothing is more responsible for Portland’s food Renaissance than a refusal to conform. It’s the spirit behind a motto so big it takes up an entire wall right across the street from Portland’s famous VooDoo doughnuts: Keep Portland Weird.

On the Progressive Palate Tour you’ll visit some of Portland’s greatest culinary successes. We’ll stop for a sample in each quandrant and if you ask, we’ll tell the story of how this city got divided into a paradoxical  five quandrants. 

Want to try our progressive palate tour for your group? Reach out to our itinerary designers and we can plan a great half-day or full-day city tour that can include a guide through Portland's neighborhoods, delicious food, excellent coffee, and one-of-a-kind cocktails if that's what you're looking for.
