Skip the haunted house this Halloween and join BeerQuest Walking Tours for a historical journey into Portland’s wicked past. You’ll meet the real ghosts of Old Town, hear first-hand accounts of paranormal encounters and journey into the Shanghai Tunnels– all while sampling 6 local beers! The perfect way to get into the Halloween spirit. BeerQuest was recently recognized with the 2019 Trip Advisor Hall of Fame Award and has over 300 positive online reviews.
In addition to the paranormal, this tour uncovers Portland’s lawless past. Lively with restaurants and nightlife today, 100 years ago Old Town was home to many of less savory establishments – opium dens, brothels, underground speakeasies and kidnaping rings. In the 1800’s, locals avoided this area because it was notoriously dangerous and a hotbed for kidnapping. Unknowing sailors were ruthlessly abducted and whisked away through an underground labyrinth known as the Shanghai Tunnels.
This tour includes an exclusive 30-minute visit underground 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 Halloween Haunted Pub Tour is roughly 2.5 hours and rated as “mildly” spooky. Tours stop at 2 local pubs and include 6 local craft beer samples. Tours are limited to 20 people and often sell out, especially around Halloween. Advanced booking is required.
