My sister and I enjoyed this trip - our driver gave good information and we enjoyed seeing the lighthouse and learning about Portland too! They even worked with us when we were held up by immigrations on the boat.

Tour was in a van with total of 8 people with driver. The van was able to get into places a bus couldn't. Driver couldn't have been more courteous or knowledgeable! Wonderful experience. Would do it again!
