Maine Day Trip Tours – the USA
BEST INBOUND DAY TOUR OPERATOR – MAINE
Are you a rock hound? If so, Maine is the place to visit. The rocky coast of Maine is 3,500 miles long if you walk it. But you do not have to go far from Portland to see and touch it. This picture of Two Lights State Park shows you a sliver of what you can experience first-hand. Climb onto these metamorphic ledges to examine the faults and joints of 200 million years ago.
These rocks were beginning 420 million years ago with a lot of heat and pressure. Today they look similar to petrified wood due to the wood grain appearance. There is no petrified wood here! Today’s view is basically the same as 14,000 years ago when the continental glaciation started receding.
Plan your visit to include the Maine Mineral & Gem Museum located in Bethel, Maine. See beautiful Maine tourmaline gems and the meteorite gallery. The world’s largest collection of lunar and Mars meteorites are also here along with pieces of the moon!

Every time I travel to a new place I schedule a private tour so that I can get an “inside” look at my new destination. The day that we spent with Leigh was one of the best experiences ever.
We have had private tours from coast to coast and Leigh is absolutely one of the most welcoming, thoughtful and insight guides ever. Actually she isn’t just a guide, we feel like we made a friend in Leigh. There were three of us ladies and all of us on our first trip to New England. When Leigh picked us up at our hotel we first plotted out what we wanted to experience.
Leigh took us in her minivan around Portland and shared history and plans the city has for future growth. We wanted to do a little shipping so we headed out to LL Bean and the surrounding shops. We were headed to Cape Elizabeth but we wanted hot chocolate and tea so Leigh was nice enough to take us to a lovely café that is in her town. Everything was yummy and the perfect place to grab a warm drink.
We then headed to Cape Elizabeth and toured a few light houses and then grabbed a lobster roll and the best strawberry rhubarb pie at The Lobster Shack. We made additional stops here and there and even left with recommendation on additional stops since we were leaving for Boston right after the tour.
On Leigh’s recommendation we stopped in Kennebunkport and we fell in love with Dannah’s on Ocean Avenue not to mention the amazing views off look out point. We also enjoyed Leigh’s recommendations in Ogunquit as we enjoyed our walk along the Marginal Way and the shops at the end of our walk.
We would not have had these experiences and found these gems if it weren’t for Leigh. Thank you!! we will be back!!
I cannot give enough praise for the tour we received from Leigh. Before going with Leigh, we told her what we were most interested in seeing and doing, and she designed the perfect tour! (For those who are unsure what they want to see, she’ll also design a tour on the fly.)
We asked to see lighthouses and buildings and areas of historical significance. Since we’d never been to Maine before, we wanted to get a taste of everything possible. Her knowledge of the area and its history was exceptional.
We immensely enjoyed everything about the tour, including her. By the end of the day we felt like we’d made a new friend.
I highly recommend Leigh and these tours. They are well worth the money.
Our group of 5 cruisers, 2 couples, and a single lady are all 60ish and we had an incredible day with Pam. She was so easy to spend the day with, pleasant personality, knowledgeable of the area and just generally fun to tour with.
I really can’t recommend her highly enough.
Pam met us as soon as we were off the ship, and we began touring Portland immediately. We then moved on to Kennebunkport for touring and lunch.
She was patient with all our questions and flexible if we wanted to make adjustments to our tour.
