About Us

Welcome to my hometown!

Let me take you for an insider’s look at the current happenings and rich history of this charming and highly acclaimed city. We’ll go where other tours go, and then I’ll take you places other tours don’t – you’ll see hidden gems that only a real local knows!

I’ve been a tour guide in Portland for 20 years, and I’m also a college librarian. I’ve spent years researching the hidden history of Portland, and I take pride in providing a personalized, entertaining tour with the right amount of humor, history, and local flavor!

This is the only Portland tour that offers a full City Tour and a trip to 3 Lighthouses!

You’ll get a full city tour of Portland, and then we’ll head across the Casco Bay Bridge to visit the most photographed lighthouse in the country, Portland Head Light (you’ll be able to get out here to explore and take photos). Then we’ll also make a trip to Spring Point Light and Bug Light. On the way to these lighthouses you’ll get an up close view of Fort Preble (one of the oldest forts in Casco Bay), you’ll see a memorial to Liberty Ships that were built during WWII, and you’ll be taken to the spot that offers the best panoramic view of Portland, Casco Bay and surrounding islands! You’ll get all this for the least expensive rate of any tour offered in Portland!
