Perfect Tour
Teryn_G, Oct 2022
This was a fantastic tour. Our tour guide, Brent, did an awesome job. He was super knowledgeable and kept the tour going at a perfect pace. The food was amazing, and was spaced out enough that it wasn’t overwhelming. I would suggest this to anyone visiting!

Great Chocolate!
Elizabeth_H, Oct 2022
Very nice tour guide (Brent) and friendly tour participants. Food was OK. In my opinion, the fish tacos should have been warm. Chocolates were awesome!
Response from Host, Nov 2022
Hi Elizabeth, and thanks for joining us. We are sorry to read that you did not love all the foods served. It appears on your tour that you were served fresh, Maine low-bush blueberry bars, a choice of fresh seafood chowders, baked haddock tacos (sorry, they should have been served warm for sure!), full-size, fresh Maine lobster rolls with local craft beers, and chocolate truffles. The owners of the chocolate shop wear aprons that say "Eat dessert first." Sounds like you agree, and we are glad you loved them. We have spoken to the owner and chef at the restaurant and they have explained a kitchen issue which should not be happening again. They buy fresh haddock each morning to prepare tacos which they fire up for our guests as we arrive, and want all to be pleased. Thank you for joining us.
Thrilled in Portland

Thank you for your review!
Great tour!
Amy_W, Aug 2022
We had a great time, learned a lot about the city's history and its fishing industry, and ate LOTS of amazing food. We visited restaurants we probably would not have gone to otherwise and our amazing guide, Timothy, even got my daughter to try clam chowder. Which she now loves : ) Definitely worth the time and money!
Response from Host, Aug 2022
Wow, we love to hear this! Thank you for your review!

Great Food, Needs Improvement
Kimberly_A, Jun 2022
Food tour was great on the taste buds. There was a definite focus for local Portland food with emphasis on the history of food in the area. We got to enjoy the main food options of Portland, including lobster roll and chowder. We weren’t pressured to leave before we were ready, leading to us feeling like we had time to enjoy and digest the food we were trying. The tour guide kept an eye on the radar, allowing us to avoid the drenching rain that showed up for ten minutes. However, there were 12 of us on the tour and the tour guide was very soft spoken so it was hard to hear him. He also did his “tour speeches” while we were standing outside which increased the difficulty of hearing him. He talked to small groups while in the restaurant but didn’t really speak to the group as a whole during that time. This could be as a consideration to us eating, but it seemed like a missed opportunity. Overall, it did seem overpriced for what we received. We got sample sizes of everything, which was all delicious and expected sizes for what we were eating. However, it didn’t seem to justify the cost when you looked at the cost on the menu.
Response from Host, Nov 2022
Hi Kimberly, Sorry for our delayed response to your review. We are glad you joined us, and it appears that our only "miss" here was that you did not always hear your guide on this rainy day and you wished he had spoken to you while you were eating. We have spoken and he has read your review and promised to "speak up" when folks can not gather too close together. We both think the weather was likely a factor. As to being not quite worth the price, please take into consideration that your ticket pays not only for the foods, beverages, servers and tips at all locations, it also pays for the customer support team, the website, the reseller commissions, ticketing fees, salary of your tour guide, and more. We hope you enjoyed not only the foods, but also the experience, and we thank you for joining us.
Jason made the tour!
Lynn_S, Jun 2022
The tour was really enjoyable, informative and fun because of JASON!! He made the tour!! He kept us interested and laughing the entire time! I had no idea there were so many restaurants tucked in and around Portland. It was very HOT, but because of Jason, I persevered…he’s fantastic!!
