Beyond Bizarre Tour - Halloween Celebration with PEERS/IBBC Guests

Unexplained mysteries, ghostly adventures, and spooky stories abound on the “Beyond Bizarre” tour. Real ghost hunting equipment, just like that used by professionals, will be distributed before we set out to visit known ghostly places and get behind the scenes into what hauntings in Portland are all about.

The tour is a true view into the reality of paranormal investigations, the equipment and techniques used, and how we separate the truth from the hoaxes. A highlight is the portion of the tour where we venture below the city's streets to see if the equipment can locate Nina, a former 'working girl' who is known to haunt the 1885 Merchant Hotel.

This walking tour offers an in-depth view into the reality of Ghost Hunting and not the drama seen on TV. Portland Walking tours hear back from guests who call this tour a 'Ghost Hunting 101' training session and who were thrilled to get an understanding of different types of hauntings including Residuals, Object Hauntings and Poltergeists. Bring your cameras (and other ghost hunting equipment) as many have captured activity along the way! 

Fee: Included in spouse/guest registration fee
