I recently went on a Wicked Walking tour in Portland, Maine. It was wonderful! Our guide Gordon was great! He remembered all of our names and where we were from, which definitely made an impression on me from the start. He told wonderfully spooky stories filled with historical facts of the area. We leaned about different types of haunting, learned... More

My husband and I took a trip to Maine in September. We love hearing ghost stories and going to locations where ghost sightings have occurred. Gordon, our tour guide, was so entertaining and shared great stories with us, as well as information about Portland, Maine itself. We had a great time!

My friends and I booked this tour at the last minute and were delighted with our 1-1/4 hour stroll through the wharf area and the back streets of Portland. Gordon is worth the "price of admission". Highly entertaining and a fun time for all. He really knows his Portland history. I felt I learned a lot about early life in... More

As the autumn weather forces us to don jackets, I think of the many haunted walking tours I have taken, Parkersburg WV (really good), Charleston SC ( OMG) and London England (I thought there was going to be a test at the end, so much history) and now to add to my collection Portland ME's Wicked Walking Tours. I was... More

We recently had the opportunity to visit Portland for a conference and wanted to take full advantage of our limited free time. The Wicked Walking Tour was spot on. Our tour guide, Gordon, was extremely engaging and knowledgeable about the city's history and quirky legends. I was able to check out parts of the city that I would never had... More

My girlfriend bough us tickets for the Wicked Waking Tour for my birthday. On a chilly September night we got the chance to walk around the historic old port and listen to some great stories. I've lived in and around Portland my whole life and found this fantastic. So many great stories and historical tidbits that I had vaguely heard... More

Wicked Walking Tours was a wonderful, last minute addition to my most recent trip to Portland. The highlight of the tour, Gordon, was incredibly personable and funny. His ability to tell stories about scary ghost tails and the history of Portland is unsurpassed! I have been on many tours and this definitely ranks amongst my favorites.

My husband and I always try to research some history of the cities we visit. We also partake of ghost tours if the locale offers one. Our tour guide, Gordon Tweedie, gave our group an excellent insight into early Portland. As Gordon lead the tour past sites known for "activity" he recounted the events in such detail it gave me...
