We went for a private happy hour tour and it was great to work with the company. Responses were quick and everyone was very pleasant to work with. They were able to arrange a private tour for us and made special considerations for two people in the group that were pregnant which was great! Stops were wonderful and the food... More

We had a good selection of different food stops and different types of foods. We did learn about the history of Portland and the city and food industry and some facts about agriculture in Maine. But our tour guide was not my style at all and I think he wanted to go off script.

We really enjoyed our Foodie Tour in Portland. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable, interesting, and fun to be with. He shared lots of great information about the best restaurants in town, the trapping of lobsters, the fishing industry of Portland, and some of the history of the city, including the older buildings. He explained a lot about the food... More

Sounds like Chris P was your guide! He has a very different perspective to share of the local food scene as a consultant for quite a few local culinary businesses and as a chef in his own right. Happy to hear you enjoyed your tour and tastings so thoroughly and we appreciate your review, cheers! More

We have visited Portland several times, but always frequent the same restaurants and bars. We decided to take advantage of two different Foodie Tours in an effort to broaden our Portland selections for future trips. Despite the rain on Saturday, we spent a lovely afternoon with our tour guide Karen for The Culinary Palette: Art, Culture and Food tour. She... More

We had a wonderful time on this tour with James and appreciate how dedicated the Maine Foodie Tours company is to customer satisfaction! My husband is allergic to peanuts and strawberries so we were concerned about limitations to this tour and did not want to spoil it for other visitors.

Emily was a great tour guide! Very knowledgeable about Portland and the culinary scene. This was a fun way to sample our way thru town! We went on the Old Port 10:30 tour, was plenty for lunch and the right amount of walking too.

We took this tour on the first day of our US holiday. We found it to be very well thought-out, with plenty of variety in the three eateries, two food shops and one brewery that we visited.
