Gordon captured your attention right from the start. I learned about Portland's haunted history while being thoroughly entertained. I love the way Gordon got everyone on the tour involved - how he remembered everyone's name was mild boggling. I had 2 teenagers with me and loved the look of total absorption on their faces while Gordon was detailing the haunted... More

Wicked Walking Tours is a must experience for any visitor to the awesome city of Portland, Maine. The tour is a comedic and informative guide to many historic haunted happenings around the Old Port area of Portland. Gordon, the tour guide, was funny, friendly, outgoing, and extremely knowledgeable about the city's haunted past. Great value, best tour we've had in... More

Very interesting tour, however I do wish we could have gone inside some of the buildings that were mentioned. The route is pretty short and manageable for most. Learned a few things about Portland's history that I wouldn't have otherwise. Compared to other ghost tours I have been on in other cities, this one could use a little more pizazz.

Thank you for your review. The following is from the FAQs, which has been posted on the landing page where you buy your tickets for almost 10 years. DO WE GO INSIDE ANY HAUNTED BUILDINGS? No. On the tour, we tell the stories outside the buildings at the various locations. However, some of the buildings we talk about may be... More

The Wicked Walking tour with Gordon was fantastic! He was such a lively ghost tour guide and made the tour really fun! Sometimes tour guides are a bit monotone or mundane, but this was absolutely not the case with Gordon! Gordon really includes the audience in his tour also, such as how he remembers everyone's name in the tour -... More

We were lucky enough to have Gordon as our guide, and he made our ghostly trek incredibly entertaining and enjoyable.

This walking ghost tour was wonderful! As Gordon told each story, he was animated and enthusiastic. The stories were fun and sometimes a little eerie. However this tour is very family friendly. The amount of time given to story telling was great, without having to walk your legs off. I would definitely recommend going on this tour when visiting Portland,... More

Gordon was a great tour guide. We heard so many interesting stories about Portland (and quite a few gave me goosebumps) and Gordon was very interactive. He remembered the names and details of every person on the tour with us and really worked that in. So much fun!

Gordon is an excellent guide, he is very interactive. He memorized every single person on the tours names, and kept it interesting with his portrayal. I will definitely recommend this to friends!
