Customer Reviews 

  • What a great way to see Portland! The guides were great

  • Rob Muller says...

    Awesome! Thanks guys for a fantastic day. I haven’t been on a bike in years, so was apprehensive about the idea of this tour. Typically you would never catch me on a trip like this. I prefer the prepackaged, macerated fun delivered by the typical six flags. I can’t believe what I have been missing. Maine is such an unbelievable gem. My wife and I enjoyed the great scenery and especially the gourmet picnic. I highly recommend this trip.

    This really was one of the nicest times my daughter and I had spending time with each other ! The guides did a great job with a fantastic picnic. We made some new friends. And to finish it off with a tour of 4 brewerys was the icing on the cake.. Thanks for a great time !

  • I took the lighthouse tour on Oct. 12, and it was just what I wanted. How exciting it is to cycle in a new place where there’s so much to see. The guides were well-prepared, patient, friendly. I call it a very good deal for the money. I enjoyed the company of all the participants. Re-posted from Tripadvisor

  • This is a great way to see the Portland area. We had lots of fun and if you’re not in great shape (like me) no worries! The electric bikes made the hills in the area do-able! (Just remember to pedal a little when you’re going up a really steep hill!). Norman and Adam were great guides, not only concerned with showing us a good time but also concerned with everyone’s safety. We had a fantastic lunch in a stunning seaside park. There were people of all different ages and ability levels. It was great to be out in the sunshine and really appreciate the areas rather than blow past them in your car. I highly recommend this great day trip! Reposted from TripAdvisor

  • We had Norman and Adrian as guides and loved every minute of the tour. They had engaging personalities and were full of knowledge. This was the perfect way to learn, sightsee, and be active! Reposted from TripAdvisor

  • A friend and I went on the 5 Lighthouse Tour with Adam as our guide – couldn’t have picked a better way to spend only one day in Portland. Our bed and breakfast was situated in the West End, so even the walk through the city in the morning to reach the terminal where we started was wonderful. I’ve been on 6 international bicycle trips, and this was so pleasantly reminiscent of many of them, the real way to sight see. There were only 6 of us on the tour. The tour length was perfect – Adam never rushed us, and he shared such interesting stories on Portland’s history. And the lobster roll lunch, along with fresh cookies from a bakery we picked up along the way, were to die for! Reposted from TripAdvisor
