We took this tour that starts at the Kiosk in Market Square yesterday. It was great, the guide was knowledgeable and had lots of tidbits of information that she really enjoyed sharing with the others on the tour.

Stop and watch the ships/boats come and go from the harbor. The tugs are funs to see. The bridge is a great view.

There is no better way around Portsmouth than to walk. There is sight seeing with many historical locations. But the Harbor walk is quiet and fun and perfect to get away from the crowds.
