Went on the city and light house tour. It's a Saturday morning tour, so the van is full! I like the light house portion very much. Enjoyed it and wished I could stay longer! Took a couple of 'postcard' picture

We took the 5 lighthouse tour. And just like the other reviewer said -- Portland Head was the best to see and the other lighthouses get an honorable mention. However, I do recommend this tour -- the scenery alone is breathtaking. Don't forget your camera!!
