Enjoyed the small 12 passenger bus vs the large 35-50 passenger buses. Was able to get closer to the sights and it was more personal.

Loved Kennebunkport. The architecture in Portland was impressive and the lighthouse stop picturesque. Very knowledgeable tour guide. Would have liked another 30 min in Kennebunkport but overall, we had time for a leisurely visit. The tour was conscientious of our ship boarding time so no...More

Thoroughly enjoyed our time with Scenic Route Maine tours! Our guide was friendly, informative, knowledgeable, and helpful. The only problem I saw was the bus’s AC dripped on a passenger and the bus had desired tip posted (tacky).

This was a good way to tour the city of Portland. Our tour guide was "Bramps" (that's what his grandchildren call him). We didn't book tours that our cruise ship offered because we didn't want to spend that much money. We found that when we...More
