What people are saying about Maine

Guide was friendly and knowledgeable. It did not last as long as the description said it would, but I suppose they may estimate more time for stopping with questions or for photos or for walking more slowly. Our group was fit. We enjoyed all the facts and views provided. It was a nice way to start off our trip and get an idea of the history of the area we would be exploring all week. Worth the time and price is fair. We recommend this as a starting activity for your visit. Enjoy!
