So the wife and I decided in the heat of August in Florida that Maine at Christmas sure seemed like a swell idea. It won’t be that cold. And better yet, how about an all-day sightseeing tour the day after Christmas? Einstein was blushing. As he should have been, after the amazing experience we had with Maine Day Trip tours wonderfully led by Norm, the owner and our guide for the day. After picking us up at our hotel a little before 9, Norm filled the next six and a half hours with spectacular sights of lighthouses and more all along the coast, as well as nuggets of history and factoids my wife and I ate up like Maine pigs to whoopie pies. He was warm and friendly and perfectly timed the visits to the various sights to get the best views. When we first got in his van, I quipped that he probably didn’t get a whole lot of folks wanting a Maine tour in the dead of winter. He said it wasn’t common, but my wife and I are glad we made the uncommon decision to spend the day with Norm and all the beauty Maine has to offer. Cheers, Norm.

The owner, Norm, met us at the cruise terminal and we headed south on the interstate. Maine does not allow billboards so the views of the fall colors along the interstate were gorgeous. We started in York and followed the coastline north. Beautiful quaint towns, lighthouses, Kennebunkport, and finally back to Portland and Ft Williams and the Portland Head Lighthouse. Norm was very informative and recommended Fox's Lobster House for lunch, an excellent choice.

Leigh picked us up at the cruise port and started off by taking our group of 8 on a drive through Portland. We stopped in South Portland to learn about Liberty Ships, and in Cape Elizabeth to see the lighthouse. It was a picture perfect day for a ride down to Kennebunk and Kennebunkport. We stopped at St. Anne's Episcopal Church and viewed the Walker homes out on Walker Point from a distance. We stopped in Kennebunk for a lobster roll lunch from The Clam Shack and a little shopping. Our final stop was Goose Rocks Beach along Kings Highway to check out how cold the water was and walk on the white sand beach. Great day! Leigh was a good tour guide and we had another woman driving the bus. Would heartily recommend this tour company!

Leigh was early to pick us up at the port for a fun day sightseeing in Portland and Kennebunkport. She entertained the 3 couples with her knowledge of the area. The food truck at the lighthouse had tasty lobster rolls. The chowder and home-made blueberry pie at the beach cafe was enjoyed by all. More time was definitely needed on this tour. Request Leigh when you book with Norman. Leigh did not rush us when we were walking around.

We were there in August as part of a cruise. By the time we figured the cost to do a similar tour with the cruise we wanted better and more flexibility and not just put on a bus with 50 people. Don and Norm did not disappoint we got to see everything we wanted and even more and he knew all the good places to eat and even with a very picky eater we had also. Would use them in a heartbeat
