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.

We recently visited Portland and immediately looked for a haunted/historical walking tour - something we love to do whenever we can. I read a lot of reviews about Wicked Walking Tours so we decided to give it a shot. We had a great time! The weather was perfect, the group was fun and our guide - Gordon - was entertaining... More

We took this tour based on all the great reviews but we didn't think it was very interesting. The guide was very friendly but at times was just too silly. We have taken lots of ghost tours and some are historical and some are entertaining, but we didn't think this tour was either of those!

I recently went on a tour hole on vacation in Portland and can't say enough good things about it. Gordon, our tour guide, was knowledgeable, energetic, and quite entertaining. We learned about some of Portland's history as well. This tour is well worth the money.

This was a fabulous tour and it was wildly entertaining. Gordan was such a delight! In fact, he surprised all by addressing each of us by our names throughout the tour. When there are 25 people, that is pretty impressive and made the experience unexpectedly personable. I would highly recommend this tour to anybody!

My sibling and I took a recent trip to Portland, Maine where we checked out the Wicked Walking Tours attraction. Our tour guide Gordon provided a fun, dynamic delivery of Portland's local ghost stories and historical lore as we weaved our way through cobbled streets, past the waterfront, and through one particular dark alleyway. And, if you are willing, Gordon... More

Our guide Gordon was a wealth of historical information and good ghost stories. He impressed me by remembering everyone's name and addressed us individually. Now that's a wicked nice thing to do. It felt personal. Portland ME has so much rich history and penalty of ghosts. You never know who or what will pull your hair or tickle your arm.... More

Ha! Thank you! I'm sure there's a lot left to investigate, but I truly appreciate the vote of confidence! I love meeting people and making connections, and I try to honor each new person by remembering her or his name....not always successfully. :) As always, it is the wonderful people who come on this tour that make it special for...

My colleague and I wanted to do a quick trip up to Maine. We decided to do a ghost tour since the both of us are into the stories of the supernatural. The price was fairly decent and there were spots available online, so we booked this tour last minute. Gordon was a great tour guide. He is really great... More

My sister and I took a vacation to Portland ME and this tour was a great way to see the city and learn more about the history. Gordon was a lot of fun and very knowledgable. I recommend it highly!

Went a ghost tour back in August. I was really impressed with the overall experience. The guide Gordon was super cool and very personable! He took time to learn all of our names and used a great mix of humor, history, and mystery. I learned a lot about the history of the city and had quite a few laughs along... More
