2.5 hour walking tour through Portland's historic Old Town District. Sample 7 local craft beers.
From US$48.00
Overview
Explore the eerie side of Old Town with this haunted pub tour in Portland. Learn about some of the city's scary history as you walk through 19th-century buildings. Sample seven local beers as you hear about Portland's era of kidnapping, gangs, prostitution and opium dens.
What to Expect

Lively with restaurants and nightlife today, 100 years ago the Historic Old Town District was home to many of Portland’s less savory establishments – opium dens, brothels and underground speakeasy’s.

In the 1800’s, locals steered clear of Portland’s “North End” as it was notoriously dangerous and a hotbed for kidnapping. On this tour, you’ll venture underground into the Shanghai Tunnels and see where unknowing sailors were ruthlessly abducted. This rampant kidnapping earned Portland the reputation as one of the most dangerous port cities in the Western hemisphere. Our expert tour guides regale you with stores about these infamous criminals, their victims and the ghost’s they’ve left behind.

This tour includes an exclusive 20-minute visit into one of Portland’s original Shanghai Tunnels. Please note you will encounter dirt/mud floors and a dark, enclosed space during this brief underground experience. This eerie tunnel system has been featured on the TV show “Ghost Adventures” and is known as one of Portland’s most haunted places.

The Haunted Pub Tour is roughly 2.5 hours. The tour stops at 2 local pubs and includes 6 local craft beer samples. It has been rated as ‘mildly' spooky and is a 50:50 mixture of history and hauntings.

Great beer, history, and thrills!

This tour exceeded my expectations. We visited actual haunted sights. Our tour guide (McKayla?!) was extremely knowledgeable, fun, and very kind/welcoming! She also had photos that other people took from the tour of apparitions! Highly recommend to enjoy beer, Portland history, and some spooky thrills!

It's not a terrible amount of walking, but it is a little bit around the downtown area. And the pace is moderate, you stop at a few landmarks and talk about things. Our guide was really cool, so if you needed to walk slower... More

You have to book online and pay then. You can book online the day you want to go, if they have space available. We booked a day in advance.
