This spine-tingling ghost tour explores Portland’s historic Old Town District, a vibrant area with beautiful 1800’s buildings, cobblestone streets and a wicked past. 

More than just sprits, you’ll hear stories from Portland’s early days when the city was overrun with gangs, prostitution, gambling and opium dens. Learn about the notorious gangsters who kidnapped sailors and transformed Portland into the most dangerous port city in America. 

Tours stop at two historic pubs for beer tastings and stories about their resident ghosts — a drug dealer, prostitute and fireman. Guests will hear first-hand accounts of recent paranormal encounters while sampling 7 award-winning local beers.  

Tours also visit the old Merchant Hotel, known as Portland’s most haunted building. The Hotel was recently featured on Travel Channels’ “Ghost Adventures” TV show.  Overall, we rate the tour as moderately scary, roughly half about ghosts and half about Portland’s wicked history.

Tours are roughly 2.5 hours and visit 2 pubs. 7 beer samples are included. The walking portion covers less than 1 mile, and the tour is all above ground. Minimum of 5 people, maximum of 20 per tour. Private tours are also available.
