``Bramps'' was our driver and tour guide for our 2 to 3 hour tour of Portland and the Portland Head Lighthouse. He gave a most informative and enjoyable tour of the city and its history, architecture and landmarks. The ``Scenic Route Tour'' met right outside the main cruise terminal. The bus carried about 16 people which was an ideal size... More

We took this tour on our stop in Portland on a cruise. It was a 3 1/2 hr tour to Kennebunkport and also did an overview of Portland as we left the city. The tour guide was good. A lot of the people had already been on a city and lighthouse tour with him earlier in the day. I felt... More

We were on a Canada/New England cruise and had a one-day stop in Portland, Maine. I had reserved a van in advance for 8 of us to take us to Kennebunkport, Maine. Don was our tour guide. He was friendly, knowledgeable, and took us to all the places we wanted to see while providing a great commentary on the history... More

You have an hour and a half in Kennebunkport to shop or eat. Beautiful town. It took 45 minutes to get to the city and 45 minutes back. Beautiful homes and scenery. Very quaint.

This is a nice day trip to take. Very informative and lots of time to explore the town of Kennebunkport. You still have time to visit Portland as well. Small buses, so not large groups.

What an interesting and informative tour of Portland by local guide, Fred, and bus driver, Bill! Learned so many interesting facts about Portland as well as Maine. The highlight of our trip was visiting the Portland Head Light where we enjoyed 30 minutes of viewing the lighthouse and beautiful scenery. As our father/grandfather was in the Coast Guard, lighthouses have... More

A lovely tour of Portland streets with commentary of architecture of homes with varying interests. Bramps knowledge was amazing and he was sure to share it with those on the trolley. He picked us up and dropped us off at Cruise Port; easy tour for those unable to walk long distances. The light house was the creme de la creme... More

Were met outside the cruiseship terminal, great 2 hour tour. Tour guide was very good and interesting. A quick trip around Portland and then a stop at the Portland Head Light house, it was good, lovely scenery. I believe it was $24 US each. Well worth it. Nice way to spend 2 hours
