Spirit Expeditions provides amazingly spooky walking tours of the Downtown Salem area that takes you by the most haunted locations in town. Use all the same ghost hunting equipment that you see on the tv shows! Our tours start at Twinsies Coffee at 150 High St. in downtown Salem where the basement used to be a one time tunnel access point! We give a free ghost hunting class before we embark on the creepiest adventure in Salem! Spirit Expeditions also offers walking tours of Silverton, Albany, Corvallis and Independence, does birthday parties, weddings, private events and spooky shuttle tours!

Bought a groupon in 2012, it's been a nightmare ever since.

Spirit Expeditions can't be more than one or two dudes in a basement somewhere trying to scam people out of their money. The first time we scheduled our tour (a month and a half... read more

Spirit Expeditions can't be more than one or two dudes in a basement somewhere trying to scam people out of their money. The first time we scheduled our tour (a month and a half in advance) there was a snow storm so it was cancelled. We then had to reschedule but they didn't have any times that worked for us... More

The tour guide never showed!! After weeks of trying to make a reservation for a Portland tour we finally had a tour date and a confirmation email. We didn't receive a cancellation email or phone call but were left standing in the cold with our tour participants for over 30 minutes until we all just gave up. Spirit Expeditions hasn't... More

I did this and got my refund. Contact the state attorney general's office in Oregon. They refunded my money right away when I did, and I assume if you worked for them and they owe you money this will work for you too. Hope someone does sue them.

They still haven't paid their guides and still haven't reimbursed customers hard earned money. I don't know how these people sleep at night

Once upon a time in 2012, in Salem Oregon this guy Dawane had a great company with guided haunted tours and was doing well. Fast forward to present day Dawane thought it would be a good idea to expand his booming business and to me it seems he expanded to quickly for his own good. He had based his whole... More

Have left at least 5 voicemails and have sent numerous emails and Facebook messages to this company over the last 6 weeks. I bought 4 tickets and now they are out of business in Tampa but refuse to return calls, emails about a refund. They wont even their national 1800 phone number. Big scammers!!!!

I have no idea how this company can be listed as one of the top attractions in Salem & have received a "Certificate of Excellence" from TripAdvisor. How can you give a company that sort of accolade when they don't even provide their promised service? (I'm looking at you TripAdvisor!) Long story short, the company cancelled their Baltimore tour (that... More

I posted this for Spirit Expeditions, but think it should go here too. We are still pretty furious with them. I'd pick zero stars if that was an option. My daughter bought a groupon for the two of us to do a tour in Indianapolis. When we finally wanted to schedule just before the groupon expired their website was not... More

ZERO STARS This tour company is HORRENDOUS! I bought two tickets for the Austin Haunted History walking tour through Groupon and it took forever to make a reservation, leaving messages and never getting a call back. Then, eventually I got through and made a reservation for August 2, 2014. The groupon said the voucher for $25 with Spirit Expeditions NEVER... More

Tryed to get someone on the phone is close to impossible. Nobody calls back, when messages left. When you do get someone on the phone they are rude and impolite. I called Groupon, who have seem to have heard these complains before. My question is if that is the case why are they still selling the groupon. I love the... More
