This was one of the best ghost tours we have been on . Victoria Rose was quite knowledgeable of the area . All her ghost stories were very entertaining and she was very easy to hear even in the large group we were in. I learned a lot about Portlands history while on this tour. We liked it so much we are considering taking another ghost tour with her . She mentioned an earlier tour where you actually go inside haunted establishments. She also gave out information of websites and YouTube channels where you could even learn more about different ghost happenings that she had talked about , I would give her 10 stars if I could .

Our guide Dani was great! She was super funny, energetic, and engaging with our entire group! She really committed to our tour, bringing incense to ward off lingering spirits and a spiritual activity meter for guest use.

Our tour was great! Our guide, Chris, was very knowledgeable and a wonderful storyteller. I only wish the tour was longer!

Very interesting. Got us to go check out some of the places after the tour

Great Guide. She had a lot of info and her presentation was terrific.
