We took a trip early in the season so we were fortunate enough to get Khaleb for a tour guide. He was great. I surprised my girlfriend with a trip to Portland and didn't know what to do. I went on trip advisor and found this tour. Khaleb gave a great tour and we really had a lot of fun. When we got to the lighthouse he got out with us and took a great picture of us. The one thing I will say is I wish we had done this tour first, it was actually towards the end of our trip. Khaleb showed us a lot of great spots to see that we didn't know about. He seemed very passionate about the city and knew a lot of great stuff. We got some great pictures of some really amazing places. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting the area.

My husband surprised me with a trip to Portland for our 10 year wedding anniversary. I have always wanted to visit Maine and photograph the Port Headlight, but didn't know much about the city itself. The hotel we stayed at recommended we call Scenic Route Tours for a guided tour of the city. And we were so THANKFUL we did! Khaled was fun and very knowledgeable about the city's rich history. He was professional, yet personable, and made us feel very comfortable, as well as involved in the tour itself. He showed us many of the historical sights and allowed us plenty of time to photograph the Port Headlight. The 15 passenger van was very comfortable and the tour was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! Now we feel that "connection" to the city and hope to visit again in the near future. I would HIGHLY recommend this company. Very pleased with the overall tour experience.

A small tour company that gives tours of the Portland area. Our guide was the owner (Khaled) and very friendly and knowledgeable. He knew the Portland area very well, having grown up there. The tour went downtown to all the historic sites and visited a fort and the main lighthouse. The dialog of the history of Portland was thorough and entertaining. I would recommend this tour to anyone desiring a tour of Portland.
