  • "Friendly, courteous, and well informed about the history and highlights of Portland, Maine. Four of us were very comfortable in a private minivan. Tailored the day trip to our wants and made great suggestions. We would definitely recommend Maine Day Trip Tours to others and use them again ourselves. Thanks for a great day in Portland and Kennebunkport. It was the highlight of our cruise."

  • "Thanks so much for the wonderful tour that you provided for my group of six. It was great to see so many beautiful places and get to know the Portland area better. We would have never seen some of the places you took us to if we hadn't arranged for the tour. It was wonderful to just meet up with you, jump in the van, and let you show us the best places."
