wonderful tour. Highly recommend. The guide was very informative. Learned a lot of history about the city. It wasn’t too long of a your. And didn’t cater to older people like many tours do. Plenty of time to spend at the lighthouses. Also it’s family owned and locally owned. 👍🏻👍🏻

Best family operated tour around

Eric was a great guide and didn't "read from a script". He is very knowledgeable about his home town and personalized his information based on our questions. The tour van was very clean and cool, it was a very warm day. This tour was far beyond just lighthouses. There was some brewery information, food details, military history, Eric's personal family history, Portland history dating back to the colonies and much more. Definite must for any visitors to this amazing city.

Worth every penny to be taken around town, shown three light houses and given a wealth of knowledge from a lobster fisherman who’s lived here all his life. Priceless. Throughly enjoyed the tour.

The best thing about my Portland visit!

Look no further for a lighthouse/ land tour- this is the one you want! I can’t say enough good things about our tour with Eric Pray! Eric and his sister run this business- so he has a vested i interest in your satisfaction with the tour. The accommodations are comfortable in the van and our tour lasted over 2 1/2 hours with stops at 3 different lighthouses. The van has a large TV screen with pictures of the areas of discussion also. Plenty of time for pictures outside and questions at each lighthouse. Eric grew up in South Portland, lives in Portland now and has been a lobster fisherman with his father for years. He is so knowledgeable about the port and the lobstering/ fishing industry of Portland, plus the history of the town in general. I learned so much - it was worth every penny. Great way to get an overview of the area upon arrival!
