This was a great tour, not only to view all of the gorgeous lighthouses but also because it's led by a true Portlander who comes from a lobstering family so he was also able to give us that information about Portland. I can't recommend it enough, the two hours flew by.

This tour was amazing! We loved learning all about the lighthouses and history of Maine, and our tour guide was knowledgeable and extremely friendly. He gave great recommendations for food and was extremely passionate about everything he showed us. We would absolutely recommend this tour to anyone visiting the city.

The lighthouse is amazingly picturesque and fascinating.
There are numerous stories associated with its history. It is an iconic bit of Americana.

Eric was not your typical tour guide. He was down to earth,helpful and so informative and willing to stop if needed. We totally enjoyed this tour and recommend it to anyone wanting to have an informative experience about Portland. Eric and his family business are eager to provide the best they can offer their guests. It is not the usual bus tour style and provides small person van which makes it more enjoyable (up to 12 as I recall) . Eric knows the area as he lives here and gives so much more than your usual tour! We highly recommend this tour.. You won't be disappointed!

Thank you so much for the excellent review and recommendation to future explorers! We are thrilled you enjoyed the experience, even in the rainy weather. Yes, the van holds 11 additional passengers with our tour guide as the driver so it is definitely a wonderful and small group. Hope to see you again in Portland!!
