The Wicked Walking tour with Gordon was fantastic! He was such a lively ghost tour guide and made the tour really fun! Sometimes tour guides are a bit monotone or mundane, but this was absolutely not the case with Gordon! Gordon really includes the audience in his tour also, such as how he remembers everyone's name in the tour -... More

We heard from our hosts that this tour was a must on our trip to Portland, and it certainly lived up to the hype. We were lucky enough to have Gordon as our guide, and he made our ghostly trek incredibly entertaining and enjoyable. His storytelling, knowledge of Portland's history and commitment to facilitating a unique adventure for his audience... More

This walking ghost tour was wonderful! As Gordon told each story, he was animated and enthusiastic. The stories were fun and sometimes a little eerie. However this tour is very family friendly. The amount of time given to story telling was great, without having to walk your legs off. I would definitely recommend going on this tour when visiting Portland,... More

Gordon was a great tour guide. We heard so many interesting stories about Portland (and quite a few gave me goosebumps) and Gordon was very interactive. He remembered the names and details of every person on the tour with us and really worked that in. So much fun!

Gordon is an excellent guide, he is very interactive. He memorized every single person on the tours names, and kept it interesting with his portrayal. I will definitely recommend this to friends!

Gordon does an amazing job personalizing each tour! He is a gifted story teller and shared a plethora of ghost knowledge with the crowd. As a local, I learned a great amount of history about Portland and was not disappointed with the stories whatsoever. You will not be disappointed!

We took this tour in October. There were 4 people in our group, and we were all disappointed. The delivery was corny which made us question the accuracy of the historical information. We later learned the historical information, sans ghost stories, was actually correct. None of the people living in the Portland area with whom we spoke had ever gone... More

GTweedie, Manager at Wicked Walking Tours, responded to this review

Actually, both the historical information AND the ghost stories are authentic and accurate. I do appreciate you acknowledging your mistake, though. As a Mainer with Native American Blood, I am especially careful to tell accurate historical stories. The stories have been carefully researched at the Maine Historical Society and many other places. Because the tour is a sophisticated comedy, I... More
