Portland Walking Tours

Pardon our e-dust

June 14th, 2013

You may have noticed something new about our website today.

If not, I won’t leave you hanging. The big change is here.

We’ve rolled out a new, modernized ticketing system on our site. We think it’ll help you in a lot of ways right away:

  • A more user-friendly interface with things like a date picker, and a friendlier tour calendar
  • The ability to buy and redeem gift vouchers for tours online (no need to call us to redeem on new vouchers!)
  • Graphical aids to replace that old tiny type and overwhelming list of tours
  • Immediate email of your actual tour tickets and receipt, so it’s all clear from the start what you’ve got and what you paid

It’s going to get even better in the future, too. The system will allow us to bring in cool stuff like ghost-hunting equipment that you can buy for your Beyond Bizarre tour, for example. It’ll also allow us (technically our new affiliate, Big Red Arrow) to sell tickets for other cool Portland shows, events and entertainment, all in one transaction. It will also allow you to get all of these things from our staff right on the street – even in ticketing kiosks, which we hope to add very soon.

In the meantime, we’re working hard to make sure the new ticketing site works flawlessly so that you can easily find a fun tour to go on, buy your ticket and not worry about it.

Let us know if you find anything odd, okay?
