We loved our Foodie tour with Glenn. He was super friendly and knowledgeable about the Portland food scene. I've been on multiple food tours, and Glenn was one of the best guides I have experienced. We enjoyed the variety of food and drink we were able to taste and it never felt like we were rushing to get from stop to stop. You can tell the restaurants have good relationships with the tour company. Would recommend to anyone wanting to get to know more about Portland in a few hours!

Excellent tour! Our guide, Ross, was extremely knowledgable about the history of the area. I am originally from Portland but had not been back in 40 years. Ross showed us places I did not know existed and made it interesting and enjoyable for all. Ross is very approachable and fun to talk to. This is a must-do,for anyone visiting.

What a Great Tour! Walking the streets of Portland Maine and hearing about the area history and talking with the restaurant owners as we eat! Double NN Glenn was the best host! He's knowledgeable and tried his best to keep us dry in the rain.

My wife and I decided to take this tour the first day we were in Portland, mostly to get the lay of the land and to get ideas about things to do and restaurants to eat at. While we had a great time during our time in Portland we never expected this to be the highlight of our trip. Our guide Mike is a person that is well suited for this tour. He is a walking encyclopedia for the history in the area, he was able to teach us about so many things regarding the rich history of Portland (if he asks the first date you will want to know is 1632). Mike made our visit to the area complete, he will remind you of your knowledgeable grandfather, there is a very sweet surprise at the end of this tour.Please do yourself a favor and do not miss it.
