Tiffany was a great tour guide and very knowledgeable of the history of Portland OR. The beer was very tasty also.

Our tour was cancelled due to a Covid exposure. I hope we are getting a refund. Very disappointed. We found our own brewery instead.

Hi Eva, I’ve gone ahead and processed your refund. As we mentioned on the phone, we had to cancel the tour due to Covid. We typically never cancel but in this case we had no choice.
Good beer + Great Guide = Spooky Magic
, Apr 2022
This was a great and fun way to get to know Portland! Tiffany, our guide, had the perfect blend of story telling, history, and spookiness. We appreciated how the tour kicks off with a flight of beer be what it loosened the group up. I’d highly recommend this tour. Plus, the beer at Olde Town Pizza was BOMB!!

I like the way Tiffany walked the tour Very interesting maybe a visit into the fire department. Tiffany needs to learn a little more about Nina and take people to the shaft where she fell or pushed
Great Time!!

Learned a lot of history! Gabby was enthusiastic and knew her stuff. She responded well to group, questions and in general very positive and upbeat
Great way to spend an evening
, Jun 2021
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.
Fine time had by all

Katie was great

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

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!

Loved it!
, Oct 2019
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...
Fun tour!
, May 2019
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.
A lot of fun

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.

Arrived at Keli Pub for tour - had to go downstairs in the cigar room to meet up with rest of tour group! Very smokey, no windows - just a fan . If you are sensitive to smoke - not the place to be. Had 4 tastings of beer before we finally went outside. started to get headache from smoke Mykaela was our guide, very knowledgeble of the haunts of Portland , and a good sense of humor ! Walked around the nearby streets to the haunted ones and she told the story behind each haunt. Ended up at Old Town Pizzeria, which also is haunted - ordered pizza which they burnt - but didn't charge us and their famous garlic knots with garlic beer dip - but they ran out of dip ! So disappointing on the food , but other than the smokey cigar room - good tour

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.
