This hands-on cooking class is a new addition to Maine Foodie Tours Portland calendar. Chris Papagni held the class in his home and his recipes were excellent, easy enough for the group to prepare and his tips were most helpful. We prepared a fennel and orange salad, Fisherman's Stew and Maine Whoopie Pies. Everyone participated and had a really fun... More

Cookin' With Friends is a different angle from our popular foodie walking tours, but one that only made sense to explore! We're happy to hear that you enjoyed the combination of hands on learning and dining with us. Thank you for sharing your experience and leaving a review! More

Pat did an excellent job teaching us about the rich history and having us enjoy the rich food and drinks that Portland has to offer. The tour was about 3 hours long, but with our awesome tour guide, we could have walked all day.

We had a fun tour of the Portland food scene with Chris, who was very knowledgeable about the city and the options--both casual and fine dining. We learned a little history too. It was a fun way to spend a beautiful sunny Mother's Day. The tour gave us some great alternatives to the options in our town, Portsmouth (another city... More

We took the tour on 4/19/15 along with about 12 others, Randy was our tour guide. We were lucky and got sunny, fairly warm weather for our hike about The Port. You do hike, mind you, and it is really rewarding. You visit several shops, more on them below, and you traverse many a street and back alley. We began... More

We did the food tour for a work event. What a great time!! They took us too three excellent Portland Restaurants. Able to sample different styles of food as well as some try some wine and beer. Would highly recommend Maine Foodie Tours as an activity in the Portland area.

Thank you for your review. On Valentines Day, there was a special event going on that we decided to try in lieu of one of our regular stops. It included a chocolate and wine pairing. We like to try new locations on special occasions and work to keep the tours fresh. Thanks for joining us on the tour. More

My boyfriend and I love food so Portland was definitely the place to be but we did not figure it out until after the tour.
