Know Your City tours provide experiential learning opportunities for education about the urban environment. KYC designs tours to foster dialogue between experts with first-hand knowledge and the community at large. Our tours provide quality information on issues of social concern, presenting interactive ways to learn by bus, bike and foot.
Flagship tours typically feature several guest speakers and locations, and are consequently offered only once or twice, with the aim of orienting locals to better know their community.
Recurring Walking Tours
Recurring Tours are designed to appeal to tourists and local alike, providing unique experiences to learn about topics not covered by other tour companies in town, directly from experts. We currently offer the following recurring tours:
- Chinatown/ Old Town Tour
- Hidden Portland Tour
- Nob Hill & Beyond Tour
- Portland Politics Tour
- Seedy, Seamy & Sinful Portland Tour
By Spring 2013, KYC will debut Know Your City: Portland’s Social History App. The free phone app will feature 20 leading cultural historians and experts using locations in the downtown core telling oral histories. For more information, visit our kickstarter page.
KYC also designs custom tours for organizations, schools and companies, large and small. We tailor these programs to the goals of your specific tour — working to present the highest level of information to meet your needs.
