Jeff was a wonderful guide and helped personalize our tour despite our arriving late to Portland. we appreciated his in depth knowledge of Portland and Kennebunk. We enjoyed our day with some enjoyable discussions about what life was like living in Maine. Jeff was great at making sure we got to the tour highlights including lighthouses, downtown Portland and Kennebunk port. He even gave us a great referral for a great lobster roll and local brew.
