About Us

  • About Us…

    Urban Tour Group is a volunteer organization dedicated to giving young people a sampling of the history, culture, architecture, and resources of Portland, Oregon.

    Our members act as guides to school groups in the downtown area in the hope that students will gain an awareness and appreciation of the urban environment.

    We are committed to providing educational tours at no cost to the school or students. We raise funds in order to be able to offer transportation to those schools which qualify as serving low income families.

  • Elementary school teachers

    ….looking to bring Portland’s history and civic culture alive for their Social Studies programs can choose between three walking tours offered during fall and spring touring seasons:

    3. Early City Tour
