Wow, this is a must-do event if you like food and are visiting Rockland. My husband and I did the tour in the first week it was offered and had the most amazing time with our guides, trying food and drink, learning about the history of the greater Rockland area, and just strolling around town meeting the old-timers. The food... More

Our guide was Chris. He so knowledgeable about the history and food. He has a great personality; he made it really fun. He also gave good advice on other places to dine, have drinks, etc. The food was good and the venues were as well. It was well worth the time and money!

We were in a group of 12 50-70 year olds and Phil managed to cover all the stops at a comfortable pace but you do have to be able to walk for a couple of hours. We got to try beverages, spices, food and a desert. Phil was a great guide, very personable & knowledgeable.

I only had a day in Portland so decided to take this tour to get a flare of the local favorites. My tour guide (Bree ) was born and raised in Portland and was very knowledgeable about the city. The best part was getting to hold the live lobsters. Bree also pointed out many different Resturants and points of interest.... More

James did a great job over three hours taking us around the old port and downtown area. We went to like 6 different places which were all terrific. He was very knowledgeable and it was a nice way to get a feel for the city. Weve already been back to a couple of the places on our own!

I decided to take this tour while I was on an internship project, and this attraction was wonderful. I am gluten-free, and the gluten free options were great at each stop. The portions were not too small, and were just enough to experience the unique flavor of Portland. Also, the guide (Chris) was hilarious, friendly, and confident as he led... More

Enjoyed this culinary tour immensely. The tour guide was very pleasant and knowledgeable. I am from Maine but learned much about the Rockland area. The food was exceptional, the people at individual stops very nice. The Eclipse crab cakes a must try. Plan to schedule another Foodie Tour next year.

It's fun to be a tourist in your own back yard, especially when it's Maine, and filled with such delicious epicurean options. We appreciate your review and thanks for joining us on a Maine Foodie Tour! More

We never get tired of hearing that our tour introductions to an artisanal culinary establishment we partner with have led to repeat visits later! It's the best kind of affirmation. Thanks sharing your tour experience in Bar Harbor in a review! More
