For an afternoon you won’t soon forget, hop on board the “Discovery” trolley and experience Portland Maine sightseeing at its finest. The entertaining Portland, Maine tour guides give fully narrated 90-minute tours of the city’s most famous landmarks. As you pass by the childhood home of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow and The Victoria Mansion you will learn about the rich and fascinating histories behind them, as well as a few lesser known stories you won’t hear anywhere else. Guests will also get a chance to see the impeccably preserved 19th century architecture and cobblestone streets that have made the city’s Old Port district the most famous, and most visited, neighborhood. Finally, you will get a chance to see Maine’s oldest lighthouse, Portland Head Light, up close and personal. This gorgeous lighthouse, which was completed in 1791, is the most photographed lighthouse in the country—and to see it in person is most certainly a humbling experience.
