I participated in this tour on a Saturday in October along with my family. We were fortunate enough to have Gordon as our tour guide. I have to admit that I was a bit disappointed when I saw how many people were in our tour group. My worries were quickly set aside when I saw how wonderful and efficient Gordon... More

Great fun and very informative. Gordon clearly knows his subject upside down and inside out, and made the tour funny, spooky and informative. He was welcoming and interested, and has a phenomenal memory for names. Portland has an interesting bank of ghost lore and macabre stories, and we can definitely recommend the ghost walk as a way of learning a... More

Very fun walking tour of Portland, ME. Gordon was an excellent tour guide - engaging, knowledgable, and entertaining. The night we went was a cool, misty, October night - perfect conditions for a ghost tour. Minimal walking, but wear comfy shoes as you'll be traversing some cobblestone streets. And if you need a little liquid courage before going ghost hunting,... More

What a talented and fun tour guide. He mixed in history and folklore. Entertaining and fun at the same time. Gordon, the tour guide was the best guide ever.

We took a trip to Maine in September and booked a Walking Tour, which we enjoyed very much. Our tour guide,Gordon, was a delight. He was able to remember each of our names, and related interesting historical facts about the area. Each of the ghost stories was told in a dramatic entertaining fashion while walking the old streets of Portland... More

Gordon is a great guide and wonderful with the group. Easy to hear with Gordon using a microphone. The group seemed a little large for a walking tour. Gordon engaged the group. Recommend for a little different experience for a vacation.

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
