We did the Combo Tour and enjoyed our day very much. The lighthouse visit was beautiful but very cold that day. The variety of sights were very interesting. We ate delicious lobster rolls at Allison's in Kennebunkport. This tour was well worth the money and...More

We booked this tour online before our cruise and it was perfect. Loved Kennebunkport. Our guide...Mike...Was very thorough, very kind and informative. The "tent" was right off the sip and easy to find and the van very nice. Would definitely suggest this trip.

The tour guide was very informative. Would like to have a few photo op stops, especially of the Bush compound. Not enough time on our own in Kennebunkport.
