Portland – Kennebunkport Private Escorted Tours
Start your private daytrip with a narrated tour of Portland’s historic landmarks. Portland was founded in 1632 and has a long and colorful history. See magnificent views of Casco Bay as you proceed around the Portland peninsula. After a short drive to Cape Elizabeth, stop and explore Portland Head Light that was first lit in 1791. Commissioned by President George Washington, it is Maine’s oldest lighthouse. A short stroll along its cliffs brings Ram Island Ledge Light into view across the ship channel.
Driving the back roads, you will be able to experience the views of the magnificent rocky coast, with winding ways through farmland and saltwater marshes, on the way to the quintessential New England town of Kennebunkport.
Explore Kennebunkport, which is alive with history, grand ocean views, wonderful restaurants, and interesting shops. You will see many historic ship-captain homes from the 19th century with interesting stories. A view of the summer home of Presidents Bush is interesting and very scenic as it juts out into the Atlantic Ocean.
Stopping in Kennebunkport, for the freshest lobster rolls and seafood, provides an opportunity to have a memorable lunch and explore the local shops.
