The hidden history of portland oregon is brutal and fascinating. The group conducting these tours/research/preservation are to be commended to say the least. Highly recommend especially if traveling.

The tour was very informative- crazy how much we learned about our hometown’s history actually. Take a good flashlight!

This was a cool tour and the guide was very knowledgeable. The "tunnels" are great old brick architecture and dirt floors. The only issue was group size. There were at least 24 but possibly 30. And the drunk folks wore out the cuteness of their...More

Our tour guide was Michael Jones and he could really weave a tale. The history was very interesting. There are tight spaces on the tour of the tunnels, which were really just connected basements under businesses. The dirt floor is uneven and it's dark down...More

Then book your Shanghai Tunnel Tours which does not include tunnels but a tour of excrement, drug and alcohol addicted people shouting at you. Not a safe place to be. I've never asked for money back on trips. This cost me $50 which isn't much...More

There really are no "tunnels" like the tour describes, just a connection of basements under retail stores. And most of the basements were closed off. I did some reading and the material I read said it was a myth about the basements being used as...More

Very uninspired “ghost” stories told in a three room basement decorated with debris. The history itself is quite interesting but access to the underground itself is so limited that it is not worthy of being called a tour.

We found this to be a fun outing, even though you do not go very far in the tunnels. What makes this tour are the rich stories, history, and anecdotes told by your guide. We did not realize there was such a dark past in...More
