“great customer service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 November 2013

we had booked in advance a tour for the day online...Portland was a one day port of call and based on trip advisor reviews we selected the scenic route company....they responded quickly and professonally to our inquiries...when our cruise ship was unable to dock due poor weather the company refunded our money immediately...they certainly will have our business next year!!

“Great Alternative to the Cruise Ship Excursion”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 October 2013

Met up with Kahlid and his wife right outside the terminal gate. Their package to Kennebunkport was $25 cheaper than the cruise offering, and the van allowed more sights than the large bus. The driver offered lots of local insights and side road attractions to give us a great flavor for the area.

One point to note is that the vans are small and fill up quickly. We were lucky and were the last on...folks behind us missed out. Best to get a reservation before you cruise or arrive in town.

“Informative and fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 October 2013

Reasonably priced tour conducted by personable staff who went with the flow of our sometimes comedic group. I love lighthouses and you get to spend 30 minutes at Portland Head Light. We did this tour while on a cruise and with it only being about two hours, you have plenty of time to do other things after the tour explains best places and things to see and do in the city.

“Great Excursion”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 October 2013

Several weeks back in the “real world” and I have time to share our thoughts on the tour we took with your company. We were very pleased with our guide Denise and what we saw. She was very accommodating and made sure that she took a “poll” of those in her Van as to what our interests were. Other than the color that was absent, it was very enjoyable. This was one of the better excursions on our recent cruise. Denise was the best guide we had. Thank you.
