Been on several of Eric’s excellent tours, am a big fan. They seem to get better and better, like performances and productions by a real artist and craftsman who knows how to grow a good seed into its fullest potential.

Positively great…I have been on several walking tours of Portland, and Eric is BY FAR the best guide…he’s exceptionally knowledgeable, organized, and thoughtful…he only talks when all attendees are gathered; he’s articulate and clear; and he joyfully answers questions.

Eric is very knowledgeable and has many stories to illustrate his points. His microphone system makes it easy to hear him even with a large group. Highly recommend!
