    Date of tour: 8/18/21 Tour guide: Barbara Our experience was excellent! Barbara led our small tour group (4 people-all my immediate family) throughout Kennebunkport, providing factual information that was interesting and that closely aligned with the brochure. Barbara, a resident in the area 30+ years, was very interested in us and accommodated our requests and needs. She offered to take photos and gave recommendations for activities and restaurants. She answered many of our questions - most related to the tour, some just general - with ease and poise. Our tour lasted almost the entire 2 hours, and we covered a lot of ground! Barbara was very cognizant of road noise and often relocated our small group to a quieter area so that we could hear her. Our only recommendation would be to better clarify the meeting spot (no fault of Barbara’s) to reduce confusion, especially in a busy area with much traffic. We highly recommend this tour and Barbara! Don’t forget to tip your guide!
