We had a great time! A group of us booked this tour while we were in the port of Portland on a cruise. I felt the tour was a great value for the price and we had a great time. John was an entertaining and knowledgeable guide who not only told us about the culinary history of Portland but also a lot of other general facts and stories about the area. The samples we tried were fantastic and all the shop owners were very gracious and helpful. My husband and I especially liked the whoopie pies at Two Fat Cats. We come from Pennsylvania and there are many places to purchase whoopie pies in this area, but those we tasted in Portland had a fantastic creamy filling that was much better than the ones we’ve tasted locally. The blueberry jam was excellent and of course the lobster was fantastic. We really liked visiting the fish market and seeing the fisherman down by the docks. I would highly recommend this tour to any “foodie” that would be in the Portland area. We had a great time.”
