Portland Short Bus

Portland Short Bus

Hop aboard our short yellow school bus and let us safely whisk you, your friends and/or strangers about to be friends into Portland’s hard-drinking expanse.

Our flagship PDX Urban Wine tour takes you on a wine tasting foray into Portland’s industrial warehouses, trendy tasting rooms, and residential garages where local winemakers ply their trade.

If daytime wine sipping ain’t your thing, we also offer many periodic GUIDED night time bar tours through Portland’s diviest dives, coolest scenester joints, and nakedest nudie bars. Our ever popular FestiBUS is an intoxicating holiday season romp about town.

 

Seats on our public tours can only be purchased online via our website.

Our buses are also available for private party rentals for a variety of tours, including:

  • Urban Wine Tours
  • Distillery Tours
  • Brewery Tours
  • Wine Country Tours

Private rentals for evening bar crawls are taken on a case by case basis. Contact us for conditions. You might check our friends at Cascadia Cruiser, Shanghai Party Bus, or Old School PDX.

Open to the Public Short Bus Tours

Our tours are meant to be a social experience. If you have a group of more than 6, please consider a private tour rather than purchasing seats on our public tours. Often large groups tend to overwhelm fellow riders who frequently join in ones, twos, or threes.
