Full description
If you’re a fan of the paranormal, weird, or wacky, you’re in for 2 hours of ghostly adventure on this tour of spooky Portland. Skeptics are welcome!

At the start of the tour you’ll be given ghost hunting equipment like that used by professionals. You’ll then head out to visit known ghostly places and experience what hauntings are all about.

This is not a theatrical performance, where your guides carry lanterns and dress up in period costumes. It's a look into the reality of paranormal investigations, the equipment and techniques used, and how truths are separated from hoaxes.

For some, the highlight of the tour is the time spent below the city's streets using the equipment to try to locate Nina, a former working girl, known to haunt the 1885 Merchant Hotel. For others, it's getting the real dope on downtown hauntings.

All ages are welcome on the 19:00 tour, but on the 22:00 adults-only tour, under 18’s are not allowed!

The tour operator is a member of the International Ghost Hunters Society and a leader in the local, Ghostlusters Paranormal Society.
  • Use of real ghost-hunting equipment
  • Exclusive access to private haunted subterranean spaces
  • Tips for detecting the 7 types of paranormal activity (and how to tell the truth from the spoofs)

Great guide/facilities- not so good location

Guide was great as well as the accommodations- the tour was pretty fun too. What marred the event was the area - full of transients - a couple that did approach the group and even our tour guide. Nothing transpired but all the same we had to keep a lookout - otherwise this was fun!

Just, WOW!

Brick was our tour guide. He shared some amazing stories of mystery, intrigue and a little humor thrown in for good measure. Born and raised in Portland, Brick knows the history and the locals. I enjoyed that we were given the opportunity to "commune" with a former occupant of the building who had died where this tour begins. Being in that basement brought on an increased heartbeat and heaviness in the chest that both I and my friend both experienced. As a native of Savannah, GA, we too have our ghost stories and sightings. This tour is a must! Ask for Brick, you will not be disappointed. He made our night.

we were lucky and the only ones there for the tour so we got a private tour. Our guide, Kevin I think, was very friendly and had a lot of knowledge about the history of the city and alot of interesting haunting stories. We were hoping for a bit more of the Shanghai tunnels but all in all it was entertaining.
