  • Tunnels - Discover the truth about the tunnels under the entire city, and what they were used for
  • Crime & Scandals - Brothels, gambling, mischief and murder - and the convenient police pay-off system kept them going
  • Present Day Issues & Social Justice - Or injustice, as it were. Learn about Portland's subcultures, sex industry & homelessness
Tickets for the Underground Portland Tour cost $20 per adult and $17 for youths and seniors. Since the tour contains PG13 content, it is not recommended for children. Walk-ups are welcome if the tour is not sold out. This tour often sells out on weekends, so buy your ticket in advance online to guarantee your spot. Tours depart every morning at 11AM and every afternoon at 2PM, and last for under two hours. You'll encounter one mile of easy walking, with no hills or no steps to climb. You'll meet your guide outside of the Merchant Hotel Building at 202 NW Davis Street (between 2nd and 3rd Avenues) in Old Town/Chinatown. Looking for a place to stay during your Portland vacation?
