The people who run the tour are friendly and funny. We were waiting for the tour in the wrong place and they called us and held the tour until we could get there. We had our two grandchildren who enjoyed the tour, especially the water...More

Our crew had a pleasure hosting your family, Linda! Thank you for the thorough review to help us spread the word about the best land and sea tour in Portland!

The historic 'land' tour was good and our guide, Derek, was fun and quite knowledgeable about the area. The 'cruise' on Casco Bay was the best part though! An affordable and fun way to spend an hour!

We appreciate your helpful review, Phil. Yes, parking near our location in Downtown Portland is available. The meters are your best value and convenience, as long as you keep them current (renewing in 1 or 2 hour increments). If you're planning to stay in Downtown...More

I took a friend and her 2 grandsons on the Duck Tour this past Wednesday. What a fun, learning time. Our guide was a Portland native with lots of history, information, and bad jokes ... that had us all laughing. Highly recommend it.

It is a few blocks from hotel but way to get to the pickup stop. I would book a day in advance.
