The people were great and the info was good but the extreme bumpy ride almost ruined the experience.

We appreciate you taking the time to review our Vintage Fire Engine Tour. All of our staff are very passionate about Portland's history and are very proud of all that Portland offers visitors today. We agree that it is a bumpy ride but Portland's roads are built directly on the old cobblestone streets and our drivers of our 1971 Fire Engine try their best to avoid the bumps and give the smoothest ride possible. We try to let everyone know before hand about the bumps and are sorry that you were uncomfortable. Part of the fun of our tour is the old truck rolling over the history filled streets of Portland Maine.
