Maine Day Trip Tours is one of the best Private tours in Portland. The friendliness and attention to details that Norm shows is the first thing you notice that separates him from other tours and he stays this way from beginning to end. We had the pleasure of taking the 6 hour tour which included Portland and Kennebunk point . We would like to point out , if you’re on a cruise ship they also offer this type of tour ,But and one big but!! it's on a tour bus with a hundred other people not a private tour. As a tip from us don't fall for cruise ship scare tactics that if you book with an independent you might be late back to the ship. They will get you back on time if they didn't it would only take one time and they would never book another guest. Anyway back to our tour we loaded in Norm's van for a tour getting a very interesting and educational lesson on Portland and all points in between as we drove from city to country side. Here’s a Only with “Maine Day Trip” a stop along the way at a local market store. This was a great stop. We loved being able to walk around and shop in a real local store, not a tourist market, but where the locals shop. Maine is a beautiful State and, as you travel with Norm, he can and will show you it all such as history, homes, and of course Light Houses such as ‘Bug”, “Portland Head” and another only with Norm!!”Nubble Light” . Where we had a great lunch, Lobster Roll and the Best Blueberry Pie we have ever ate made with wild Maine blueberries .Then we loaded back in van for the ride to Perkins Cove and Kennebunk point, then on to Portland being dropped right in front of where we needed to enter for your cruise ship.In ending, if your travels take you to Portland Maine by cruise ship or other

A 3-day private tour of coastal Maine with NORM!! He knows all the usual places and told us great stories about the history, but the best part was all the "out of the way" places only locals know about. We had the best meals - from nice restaurants to diners.. (lobster rolls and blueberry pie to die for) and we could stop along the way to shop or get coffee - totally on our schedule. This was a real MAINE EXPERIENCE and just what we were looking for. Call Norm - he's the way to go! His prices are extremely reasonable and because he really cared about making the trip special, we had a great time. Thanks, Norm! We'll be back!

Bruce & Leigh were amazing! We were a group of 6 from Wheeling WV in Kennebunk for our wedding. Not familiar with the area I researched & booked the tour so we could have a private informative tour of lighthouses & shopping. They were great with planning on the go as we told what we wanted to do. Leigh took us to a wonderful shop that we never would have found on our own (Mainely Murders). Delightful!! 4 adults & 2 teens were all happy with our trip. Excellent!

My husband and I spent a fantastic day with Norm, seeing parts of Maine's southern coast that we never would have found on our own. Norm was friendly and very knowledgable of the area's history and trivia. I would absolutely recommend Maine Day Trip Tours.

The only way to tour. Pam met us at the ship and took us to see all the sights in Portland. She told us the history of Portland and made it very interesting. Then we were off to see Kennebunkport. Saw all the sights and enjoyed a fabulous meal at Allisons in Kennebunkport. I would highly recommend Maine Day Trips to anyone!
