We opted for the Portland City and Lighthouse tour. It was an amazing way to see all the highlights of this beautiful area. Our tour guide, Gary the Pilot, was awesome. He made the tour so entertaining and kept us laughing the whole trip.

This was a very informative and interesting tour. The tour guide knew his history. There was one stop for restroom use (porta potty) and snacks, but lots of opportunities to photograph the Portland Head Light.
