Great tour
Jack_S, Oct 2021
Eric was an awesome tour guide! He was very knowledgeable and helpful. One of the best tours I have been on. Keep up the great work!

Perfect photos in Portland, ME
Elizabeth_S, Oct 2021
Our guide Eric’s personal connection to the Portland area made this tour so enjoyable. We loved the time at Portland Head Light taking photos, walking the Cliff Walk Trail and climbing the rocks down to the ocean. After visiting 2 more lighthouses, Eric gave us recommendations for other sites in downtown Portland and suggestions for great restaurants.
Response from Host, Nov 2021

Poor management
RatnaKarmakar_K, Oct 2021
Poor Management. Our cruise timing on the voucher was wrong. We made it by chance. Was a hassle. The customer service number was a British number. It was a mess. Will never use visitor again.
Response from Host, Oct 2021
Hello, It sounds like this review may be directed towards another business or Viator directly. We do not have a British number, we have a Maine phone number. We are also not a cruise, and it appears as though your tour time was correct for the land tour with us. I’m sorry to hear your booking experience with Viator was not exceptional. Wishing you a healthy and safe year ahead.

Leslie_M, Oct 2021
Recommend lighthouse tour over all others. Seeing the mink, kites, and hearing lighthouse fog horn extra special bonus. Eric gave excellent tips for restaurants and must see and do in and around Portland. Suggest take this tour first and if limited to one this is a must over the others.
Response from Host, Oct 2021
Hey Leslie! Thanks so much for the awesome review!! We really appreciate your feedback. Glad you enjoyed the bonus sights and sounds :)
Local guide gives great tour
Karissa_P, Oct 2021
GREAT tour! Andy was awesome. A local guy who knew all the history of the city, knew about the lighthouses and also gave several great recommendations on places to eat. The lighthouses were beautiful. The transportation was clean and comfortable and Andy pointed out several things or told stories while in transit. Bring cash with you! At the Portland headlight there are food and gelato trucks but the gelato truck only took cash.
Response from Host, Oct 2021
Good day! Thank you very much for the great review! Hope the memories bring you back for a future visit to our great state! All the best!

Best ever city tour - best to book with a local!
Elaine_L, Oct 2021
Absolutely the best city tour I have ever been on . I didn't feel as though it was "pre programmed" for the masses. I learned so much about Portland, lighthouses, and lobster fishing since the guide was also a lobster fisherman. There was a screen in the van which provided us with pictures or videos of the guide's narration,
Response from Host, Dec 2021
Wow, Thank you very much for the great review and recommendation! Happy to hear we were the best yet :) Hope to see you again Elaine!
Fun time
