We organised the Foodie Tour as part of our cruise and spent the day visiting Portland, it was a very useful way to see the town from a walking and food/drink perspective…
We booked the tour as a foursome but were part of a Group of 10-12 people. Our guide Randy made the tour fun and informative and endeavoured to ensure each of was engaged.
We made seven stops around the town including the Shipyard Brewery.
Anything not to your particular liking did not have to be tasted and were offered around the rest of the Group, be it the lobster, wine, cheese, jam & scones, chutneys, beer, cake or chocolate.
At each stop, Randy either did the opening introduction or indeed explained the food or drink item, dependent upon the location.
We had a very good time tasting, walking, taking photographs and of course, having a nice chat with our fellow foodies.
We asked Randy about getting a taxi to the lighthouse and that is when he took his role as a guide to the next level...
After the Tour he took the four of us in his car the few miles to the lighthouse.
He parked up while we spent 20 minutes or so taking photographs and on the way back we stopped for a lobster roll, I won`t say where, but it was damn tasty !
Randy dropped us back into town and we obviously tipped him for his time and service, don`t be afraid to ask if the lighthouse is of interest and we are sure Randy will be accommodating if his time allows.
All in all a good day spent in Portland and the surrounding area.
