This tour, which compares favorably to similarly themed Ghost Tours in New Orleans, was a great way to become acquainted with Portland. The tour guide combined humor, history, and exceptional storytelling skills in providing a good introduction to Portland. Highly recommended for visitors who would like to get more out of their trip.

What a great way to learn about Portland history and lore! This walking tour was entertaining, interesting, and Gordon made it a personal experience for everyone in the group. We'd fully recommend it to friends!

Taking the Wicked Walking Tour is a great way to kick off a night out in Old Town. Gordon is a great host and he tells you the "haunted" history of Portland with enthusiasm and humor. I will get tickets to go again my next time in Portland.

Gordon, our tour guide, did a great job of entertaining and informing us. I would recommend this tour for people who like history and a little fun. Do... More

We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! Gordon was very entertaining and engaging. How he managed to remember all of our names (there were about 30 in the group) is beyond me! He obviously loves what he does. I highly recommend this tour for all ages but be sure to wear comfy walking shoes. Although it's a relatively short walk, the cobblestone streets... More

If you're not from Maine or familiar with the local vernacular, don't let the term "wicked" mislead you. Wicked in other parts of the US means "bad" or "evil" but in Maine it means "good" or "very" (i.e. "The tour was wicked good!") Wednesday night was my second time attending the Wicked Walking Tour. I went a few years ago... More

Let me first say that I do not believe in ghosts nor do I find them a particularly fascinating topic (I went on the Wicked Walking Tour with some family and friends). Despite this, I thoroughly enjoyed my experience; thanks to our tour guide, Gordon Tweedie. Gordon was incredibly engaging and knowledgable about the history of the city of Portland... More

My husband and I decided to have a night out in the Old Port with our two friends. We had never been to the Old Port and decided that the best way to check out the area would be to attend a ghost tour. Going on Wicked Walking Tours with Gordon, as our fantastic guide, was the best choice we... More

My husband and I love to walk and to learn about a new area. The Wicked Walking Tours was a highlight of our trip to Maine. Our guide, Gordon Tweedie, did an awesome job of leading the group to the "haunted" areas of Portland. Every "haunted" story gave us a bit of Portland's history. Gordon did such a great job... More
