“Best Tour of Downtown Portland”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

The DownEast Duck Tour gives all the history of Downtown Portland, also gives you ideas of places to visit and places to eat. The narrator on the tour is quick and witty and makes the ride a lot of fun. And driving into the Ocean is a unique experience. Loved the view of Bug Light. Would highly recommend this tour to anyone.

“Funny, witty tour”
Reviewed 8 November 2013

Great little tour of old town Portland. Guide is witty, lots of humor and using "local" phrases as well as pointing out fun areas to visit while in town. Highly recommended to anyone in the city.

“Fun way to take a tour”
Reviewed 18 October 2013

We had been to Portland ME before and so wanted to do something different. We had enjoyed previous duck boat rides in other cities and thought this would be a fun way to tour the city . . . and yes it was. I think you have to be a little different to be a tour guide on these boats and sure enough we had someone that was a little different and made the trip more fun. Learned a lot about the history of the city that we would never have picked up somewhere else. Having lived in the "other" Portland Oregon we found out it was named after Portland Maine. I think the price was a little higher than what we expected but other than that it was a great tour.

“Great Way to get a quick history of Portland”
Reviewed 2 September 2013

The duck tour was a fun short trip to get a quick tour of downtown Portland, The Old Port and the Harbor. It was a way to find out other places to see and where to eat while on our trip. The guide was very informative and kept your attention, very funny. Loved going from land to water in the same vehicle.

“Good quick tour of the city”
Reviewed 22 August 2013

I only had a couple of hours of personal time on a business trip, so I decided to take this tour to see a little more of Portland. It turns out, there isn't too much to see, but the tour was informative and it provided views of the city which I would have otherwise not seen on foot.
