The small tour was great. With not so many people in a vehicle, you feel a more one on one tour. The driver tour guide did not make you feel rushed and answered many questions.

Our tour in Portland was in a twelve passenger van with ten folks.(I would not have wanted two more!) Our drive through the city neighborhoods with our driver’s narration was pleasant. We disembarked at the Portland Head Lighthouse. This most photographed lighthouse is beautiful! Two other lighthouses are viewable in the distance. The tour was easy to find directly off the ship and a good value.

I originally booked the combined tour of Portland and Kennebunkport. After booking & paying for the tour I received an email saying I needed to choose between the two tours as we had to pass through immigration leaving insufficient time to do the combined tour.
I chose to do the City tour of Portland which included going to the Lighthouse.
The bus tour was a brief look at the city prior to heading out to spend 30mins at the lighthouse.
I enjoyed the light house as we were able to get out and take photos.

In Portland for one day on a cruise and took this bus tour to Kennebunkport. It was a very pleasant drive-through with a great overview of a beautiful coastal town and just the right amount of time to walk around the downtown and/or eat lunch. We hope to return to Kennebunkport.

Small group tour was exceptional!!! Our driver (Sean) was excellent/knowledgeable/entertaining/safe and even humorous. We would rate this as one of our best tours while on our cruise up the coast of Maine. Would definitely recommend!!!!
