We really enjoyed our tour. We heard the history of the city and saw amazing sites. It was a great way to start our trip.

Sep 8, 2022

Great land trolley tour of the city of Portland to include a 30 minute stop at Portland Head Light. We stayed warm and dry on the trolley despite it pouring for the 105 minute tour. So much valuable and interesting information. Our trolley driver/narrator, Wendy Lee, was funny, informative, and sincere. I would definitely do this to again and others from the same company. No bathrooms near the sign in area so make sure you take care of business before you do your check in.

We had such a great evening on the lighthouses and sunset tour! The crew was engaging and the narrator provided a great history of the region. We even saw some Bald Eagles and Seals!
