Portland's longest running Ghost Tour with 300+ 5 star reviews. The city's wicked and wild history will blow you away!

On this spine-tingling walking tour, you will uncover Portland’s dark side. In the early 1900s, unsuspecting sailors were often ruthlessly abducted and wisked away through the notorious Shanghai Tunnels. We will entertain you with stories of how notorious local gangsters managed to kidnap thousands of people off the streets and why their ghosts still haunt the city today.

Our tour guides are local historians and ghost hunters who love to share their passion with you. We LIVE for seeing our guests eyes light up and hearing an audible gasp at the end of a spooky tale.

Stops include the famous merchant hotel, home to Nina Portland's most famous ghost. Friday and Saturday tours will include 6 local beer samples. Thursday and Sunday tours include two16 ounce beers. The tour is rated ‘mildly’ spooky and is a 50:50 mixture of wicked history and hauntings.

Perfect low-key spooky season activity. Gabby was a fun tour guide and the tour pointed out a lot of creepy history about Portland.

Fun and informative, makes a great introduction to Portland's history, with an emphasis on death and disaster and a few good ghost stories too. Kells was a pleasant pub with a good selection of brews offered during the tour.

Katie was a fantastic tour guide. We learned a lot about some Haunted History in Portland and the beer was great!

Amazing tour of some of the coolest pubs with links to the Shanghai tunnels. Katy, the tour guide was awesome! She was a wealth of information and a great storyteller. I learned tons about Portland and the creepier side you don't get often. We went to two awesome pubs (one a pizza place) and toured the basements in both. We also walked around the city a bit and got to know spooky stories about famous people and events that took place along the path. The beer was great and the company even better!

This tour was full of history, legend, folklore and accounts of actual ghost sightings and interactions. Photos from tour guests that seemed to capture images, apparitions and silhouettes were also shared in an upbeat way with both serious and lighthearted delivery. I knew nothing about Portland when I went and learned a lot. Plus sampled some great brews, met great people and shared some laughs. I thoroughly enjoyed this tour and highly recommend it. If you’re not afraid of no ghost...

I went on this tour as a group of 4 people while on a conference for work. The tour consisted of 10 people and we visited one bar where we enjoyed 3 (~5 oz) beers, then walked around touring the city to finish at one last bar where we tasted 3 more beers. Katie was our guide and she was excellent - she was funny, passionate, personable and knowledgeable. Although the tour’s description and the start point’s positioning kind of suggests that you would visit 6 different bars and you only visit 2, I would recommend this tour.

This tour was very informative. I liked the small group atmosphere. We captured a lot of activity. I had a book fall on me in the cigar bar and my wife had something touch her hip. Also captured a chain moving on its own and it was verified with an emf detector in the Shanghai Tunnels. Scott our guide was very good.

Great tour even for those not so into the ghostly thing like my husband. Luckily he was a good sport about the whole thing. It was amusing, a little frightening, thrilling, mysterious, and still educational. The people on the tour were great, and the pace was perfect. Our tour guide was super friendly and knew a lot about ghosts, beer, coffee and real estate. I totally recommend this tour.
