Victoria Rose is an awesome tour guide! My daughter and I truly enjoyed taking the ghost tour with her, she brought to life the stories of each person and their after life reality! She also shared a realistic story of a personal paranormal experience that she and her family in countered. If I could spend some personal time interacting with a tour guide and someone who have knowledge about the paranormal, Victoria Roşe would absolutely be my go to person!!!

Excellent guide and knowledgeable of the history that was all around us. Bikes are well maintained and the bike tour provided water as well as French pastries while touring. Take advantage of this tour, we’ll worth it.

Victoria Rose was very entertaining and informative. So many people now live in tents on the street, but staying together we always felt safe.

Our guide was very well connected to the tales of the underworld and historic spooky facts of old Portland.
