    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.

    This was such a fun tour with a ton of history presented about the city. The beer was fantastic and overall I would definitely recommend this.

    First of all, we really loved Katie, she was a great storyteller & kept things lively! I'm from here & had no idea about the tunnels or the shady history that happened in this area of Portland. I can't wait to do another tour with this company!

    From the Beerquest website: "The tour begins with beer samples in an underground cigar bar where patrons regularly experience paranormal activity." Our tour began by waiting 15 minutes for beer samples in a banquet room. We spent about one minute in the cigar bar before

    Let me say first, I thoroughly enjoyed the tour. I learned alot about the history of Portland and drank some great beer. But the only thing "haunted" is that they tell a few ghost stories. And its not really a pub tour. You only go inside two places; two pubs. Everything

    Our guide, Rachel, being a history student gave an excellent account of the peppered Portland past. Did you know Portland had a huge slave trade economy and not just in the South on the US east coast? No more on that as not to spoil the tour, but it does give reason to some of
