We were visiting Portland on Halloween so we thought it would be fun&fitting to do the ghost tour. Gordon is a fantastic storyteller and I was very impressed at how well he kept track of the group and remembered people's names. He had a lot of interesting details on the history of Portland as well. It was a nice night... More

Over the past 5 years, we have taken this ghost tour twice and really enjoyed it!! We've been on at least 10 different ghost tours in several cities in our lifetimes, and this is one of the better tours we've been on. Very entertaining and on the lighter-tone with the ghost stories.

Gordon will walk you through the Old Port and share mysterious stories of Portland's past. He's funny, smart, personable and had the remarkable ability of remembering the name of every single member on the tour after introduction! I wish the tour had been longer, and I can't wait to go again.

We thoroughly enjoyed the Wicked Walking tour. Gordon's knowledge and enthusiasm for Portland's ghosts was very infectious!! He got the whole group involved with the story telling and remembering everyone's name made the tour more personal. A humorous look into Portland's darker side. A definite must do.

My wife and I try to hit up a "ghost tour" on our trips, and we found this one for Portland. This appears to be a one-man operation, and Gordon was a great guide. The tour was moderately priced, and we felt it was worth the value. Not quite as long or as interesting as other tours but still glad... More

The walked around downtown Portland and included lots of history along with ghost stories. Gordon was a great guide, remembering everyone's name and keeping things light and entertaining. Excellent around Halloween, but fun any time of year.

The tour included a little Portland history, ghost stories and humor. Gordon was remarkable, remembering everyone's name and including many in conversation. If you are looking for something to do this is a good way to start your night off.

Unfortunately I was in Portland for a conference and took this tour during the day. Even so, it was a great history of the city. Gordon was fun and made sure to fill us with tons of information. He had to adjust the tour to where our hotel was since he met us there, as opposed to us meeting him.... More

This is an excellent tour that helps bring the people and streets of Portland to life. I would highly recommend this as a "must-do" activity on your trip to Portland. The guide is extremely engaging and passionate about "wicked" Portland!
