Leslie_B, Jan 2023
this tour is in one of the worst sections of portland. impaired folks on street spitting/ using and tour stopped at them still to speak. The risk and initial exposure to was not enjoyable even though the history was fun. only spent 30 minutes on this tour due to unpredictable street behavior of others.
Response from Host, Jan 2023
We were able to get in touch with Leslie and provide her a refund. Unfortunately this guest has a bad experience with a person on the street. This was an extremely rare event and it is not a dangerous area as they have indicated. We have been doing this tour for over 10 years and we have never had a safety issue. We can’t control the people that guests may encounter on the tour but we do offer a refund if people are not satisfied.

It was really fun and informative :) The drinks were really good and you got to learn a lot about the city.
Response from Host, Nov 2022
Thank you for the kind words. We’re so glad you had fun!
Nice night walk
Cynthia_L, Nov 2022
Being with my family while hearing ghost tales of the area and sharing samples of beer. Tour guid was hard to hear and was not to knowledgeable about the beer samples. Thought (because of add pictures) we were going under ground. But we made the most of it and talked with some really nice people in the toor.
Response from Host, Nov 2022
Hi Cynthia, thanks for the review. We are happy to send you a refund if the tour did not meet your expectations. We are always looking to improve and will use your feedback to do so.
Lacking in any real interesting flair
Bryant_R, Oct 2022
Tour guide was a great guy, but so soft spoken for a group of 20 people in a not quite setting. He often started talking at the stops before we all arrived, so I missed multiple moments of information. The sites themselves were pretty underwhelming, nothing new you haven't seen walking around the Saturday market. He was a knowledgeable tour guide and our group enjoyed ourselves talking at the end of the tour. Glad I went to but was disappointed in the tour.
Response from Host, Dec 2022
Thanks for the feedback, we have passed this along to your guide and will use it to improve.
It was ok
Naomi_H, Oct 2022
Beer was good, pubs were cool, stories/history were mediocre. I think there was a lot of missing info, stories were kind of generic.
Response from Host, Dec 2022
Thanks for the feedback, we will use it to improve.

Our tour guide, Tiff, was great; however, we had hoped to actually go inside of the buildings featured and that was largely not the case.
Response from Host, Oct 2022
Hi there, I’m glad Tiffany did a great job and you enjoyed the tour stories. Our website describes exactly where we go on the tour. We stop inside two pubs and the rest of the tour is outside.
Good tour. Guide friendly...

Good tour. Guide friendly and knowledgeable. Nice walk into old Town. Fun for a date. Ended at a pizza place. Stories interesting. Fellow tourists fun to mingle with.
Haunts and Brews!!!!!
Ben_A, Aug 2022
Aside from learning about some of the haunts, we also learned a great deal about the history of Portland. Great time.
If you’re looking for something a little different
Michael_S, Aug 2022
The beer was good, guide was great, evening fun. Watch out for homeless lurking on streets. The key pub for the night — Kells Pub — was closed that night so we really felt we missed out on the best part. Republic Restaurant almost made up for it because we heard some first hand account ghost haunting.

Our tour was cancelled...
Eva_D, Jul 2022
Our tour was cancelled due to a Covid exposure. I hope we are getting a refund. Very disappointed. We found our own brewery instead.
Response from Host, Jul 2022
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
Hillary_F, 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!!
Michelle_M, Apr 2022
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!!
John_S, Jul 2021
It was an absolute blast. Would highly recommend to a big or small group. Eas a great way to experience the city and have some fun.
Shannon_T, Jun 2021
Gabby was great. We had fun and she engaged with every person in the group. We will be back for sure.
Tourist Fun
Karen_B, Jun 2021
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
Leanne_M, 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
Emily_R, May 2021
I enjoyed ot quite a bit, so did my wife. As this was a birthday suprise for her I wqs quite relieved.
Katie was great
Lisa_I, Mar 2020
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!
Natalie K, Oct 2019
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!
