Guide greeted us under a parking ramp roof(raining) and continued his 15 minute tour speech there while we were very distracted by the five homeless men within three feet of us. When walking to the next stop, the back half of the group (about ten people) lost sight of the guide. After a five minute wait the guide arrived to... More

Gordon was a fantastic tour guide who made an effort to make everyone on the tour feel welcome and included! He started with some history of Portland as a background and then lead us to various sites to retell the haunted tales that had been shared with him by locals. Gordon was very energetic and enthusiastic, getting into character with... More

We always try to find a ghost tour in the towns to which we travel. We fully enjoyed Gordon's stylings and stories. He has a manner which makes you feel at home and individually cared for. Gordon introduces himself, learns your name and uses it during the tour. Really a nice touch. Complementing his personal touch, his stories are interesting,... More

This walking tour is informative - the tour guide walks you to various spots in downtown Portland and tells the story of hauntings and myths that originate at that location. I think a lot of people expect this to be scary. It is not. It is amusing. The tour guide knew his material cold and memorized the names of every... More

My boyfriend and I had a fabulous time on the Wicked Walking Tour a week ago in Portland. Gordon, our tour guide, was born for this and is a natural storyteller. His charisma and charm had me grinning from ear to ear throughout the whole tour. He knew how to build an interesting story and left a memorable impression. I'd... More

Gordon was funny and a great guide for group. We did 4 different tours while in Portland and he was by far the best.

First thing to mention is it is VERY hard to find parking in the area where the tour begins, so I would suggest giving yourself and extra half hour to be safe. But, it is worth the hassle. It is a fun and interesting hour and 15 minutes. You see some interesting places, some iffy places ( but safe )... More

This ghost tour is an account of people's first hand paranormal experiences through Portland. There is nothing scary. It gives you a good tour of the city as well if you are new to the area. Gordon was great, very personable. The stories could be a bit more historical, but overall, it is a good time.

Gordon was very knowledgeable and engaging. The tour itself is a really fun way to learn a little bit of the city's history while getting to explore the downtown area. Definitely a great experience for anyone taking their first trip to Portland

What a great find! We were looking for something offbeat and different on a warm summer evening, and the Wicked Walking Tours of Portland definitely fit the bill! Gordon, our host, was funny, knowledgeable and entertaining. Nothing bloody or gory, and nothing will jump out at you. Just fun, amusing ghost stories with a little history thrown in for good...
