We had an absolutely wonderful walking tour with Ross. If you are visiting Portland or live in Portland and have out of town visitors don't miss this most informative, fun, and pleasant tour. Portland has such rich history and Ross won't disappoint as he shares interesting facts, fun stories, and some "behind the scenes" tidbits. Ross is also helpful with restaurant suggestions and other sites to see, both in Portland and other nearby Maine locations. Thanks Ross for a great tour!
