I was able to take the virtual tour from my home in Chicago with a group of friends from all over who also experienced the cancelation of summer plans due to Covid. This was a ton of fun and allowed us to continue to learn something new, and look forward to planning something in the future! We all left wanting more and cannot wait until it is safe to travel to do the live tour and experience all the great learning and food we discussed!!! Thank you Maine Food for Thought, this was a great experience.

We just got done with this tour. It was amazing and definitely recommend. We hit 5 restaurants with great ambience and the food at each was amazing. In addition to the great food, the tour was really informative with regards to how food in Maine is sourced and will make you think about what you can do to help when you make food choices in general. Absolutely worth the time and money!

Portland's food scene rivals cities 10 times it's size. This tour brings not only great food but the personal stories of those who put their soul into delivering it.

I took my 16-year-old daughter on the tour and we loved every minute of it. The Maine Food For Thought tour is singular in how it combines food, history, sustainability, economics, and its chef and maker partners into one fantastic experience. As a local, I learned so much and felt an immense sense of pride in the place I call home. I was worried that my daughter would be bored, but she was not. She LOVED the food and the opportunity to walk around the Old Port in a way we had never done before. Our tour guide Bryce was kind, engaging, and extremely knowledgeable. We have our local haunts where we normally eat in town, so it was great to try new places like Solo Italiano Bistro. We loved the pesto pasta - so much so that we went back to Solo Italiano for my birthday dinner. This tour is a gift to our region and I HIGHLY recommend it for both locals and tourists alike.

Thank you so very much for joining us on a tour. It meant a lot that you and your daughter were able to be a part of the experience. Yes, no doubt, Paolo's pesto at Solo Italiano is definitely something special! We're glad you were able to go back for your b-day. Great choice!
