Thought this would be a unique way to see the city highlights. We always like the Hop On Hop Off buses, but this just sounded like FUN! This is a small group tour which is nice you don't get lost ine the crowd. Our driver and narrator were quite knowledgeable and entertaining. The ride can be a bit bumpy due to road construction and the shocks on the fire truck...yes it is really an old fire truck. We thoroughly enjoyed this tour and just might do it again if we come back to Portland, ME.

This was a great way to tour Portland and having the TV to show photos and pictures of the old buildings and area was a good added touch. I highly recommend this one!

This was a great and fun way to get an overview of Portland. The tour guide pointed out places that we would want to go back and visit, which we did! The fireman coats were most appreciated as it was chilly and damp the day we took the tour.

This was an awesome tour!! It is a one hour tour and you actually ride in the back of a vintage fire engine. On this particular day, it was very foggy but no problem. Our tour guide, Glenn, had a slide show on the truck so you could see the sights we were missing due to the heavy marine layer. I don't know if you can request a tour guide, but if you can, Glenn was outstanding. He lives in Portland so he knows the area very well, has a great personality and interacts with the people on the tour. It is a short tour, so it doesn't take up your entire day, but gives you a great overview of Portland, Maine.
