This was my second tour of the so-called Shanghai tunnels in Portland, OR, although this one is a different tour and is offered by the Cascade Geographic Society and all proceeds go to supporting the research into Portland's "dirty little secret". All I can say is I was truly shocked that shanghaiing was Portland's biggest "industry" back in the 19th & 20th centuries. This a labor of love for our volunteer guides. This was the ghost tour and the hosts of Sci Fi channel's Ghost Mine show, but the guide was very knowledgeable about what happened down there and how cut throat and brutal the business was "back in the day". This is a great way to kick off your evening in Portland, whether you are a visitor or resident. I am happy this city is acknowledging its past now and Cascade Geographic Society does a wonderful job restoring these tunnels. Bravo!
