An interesting tour, great driver and tour guide. started the day with a pedicab ride with Nathan. Asked for a breakfast suggestion. He asked if we wanted chain or local, we said good and local. He took us to Becky's Diner. The food was wonderful, homemade corned beef hash with big chunks of corned beef and buttery soft pancakes like my Grandma used to make. Best part of Portland. Read Less

We did the Portland City and Lighthouse Tour. We loved seeing Portland Head Light and the city tour was just what we needed to get a better sense of what the city offered. From the pier it's hard to get a good feel of the city. We did enjoy walking along the waterfront. There is lots of great architecture and history to Portland so make sure to explore beyond just the waterfront or you will miss it. Read Less

Tour gave us a good view of the city and then took us to one lighthouse where we had time to take photos and allowed for shopping as well. Guide was very knowledgeable. Our bus was one of 4 buses in total and our bus went the opposite direction from the other 3 buses so our arrival at the lighthouse enabled us to visit without competing with almost 150 other passengers.
