Welcome to our Urban Tour Group website!

  • Urban Tour Group

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

Welcome to our Urban Tour Group web site!

We offer FREE walking tours of downtown and also classroom presentations of our walking tours for children in 3rd-5th grade.

This is a wonderful class activity where students will learn about the history, architecture and art of Portland. Our tours are a great way to actively introduce young people in the metro region to their history and urban environment.

NEW; Teacher Showcase on  Friday October 11, 2024. Come take a 2-hour tour of downtown areas to preview what your students might experience on one of our tours. To sign up for this, send an email to: UTGInformation@gmail.com
