Derek was an amazing tour guide, we learned so much about Portland that we could not have gotten anywhere else. The time we spent at each lighthouse was absolutely perfect. We could not have asked for a better experience. I would recommend him to anyone coming in for a visit

Derek was amazing and very entertaining. It was a small group which was nice. He knew all kinds of interesting facts about Portland and made great recommendations for places to eat, drink, and visit. We actually went to a couple of places after the tour and they were all great. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Portland (do it day one so you have time to explore his recommendations).
