Portland (Maine) Kennebunkport Excursion Reviews

The small seaside town of Kennebunkport makes for a nice afternoon trip. It's one of the most popular destinations and is often frequented by popular American families (The Bush's), so be on the lookout -- you may see past Presidents!

Another great tour and tour guide. Kennebunkport is a quaint little town with shops that are mostly affordable. This was a combined bus/boat tour. The boat ride was great too although it was soooo cold. Still enjoyable.

Great trip! Plenty of time to see and do. Great info from the tour director, the bus was very clean, and we were left in the center of town with many options for eating and shopping.

Firstly there is a bit of confusion at the cruise terminal. If you walk off the ship you have to go through extensive security to access the excursion coaches. The security staff there were extremely rude and harassed everyone. If you got on the golf cart shuttle to the terminal building you could bypass the security line and get on the coaches directly. Even the shuttle drivers were unfriendly and rude. The tour was just OK, our guide was over enthusiastic and pointed out useless attractions and dumped us off in Kennebunkport for 2.5 hours of shopping. Typical of cruise line excursions. We will never visit Portland again because of the way we were treated by the security staff at the terminal. Kennebunkport is a pretty place but over crowded when there are a few cruise ships in port. Read Less

We the city of Portland and Kennebunkport via bus. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and kept us on time. He recommended a great lunch spot in Kennebunkport for lobster rolls...one of THE BEST I've ever eaten. We wished there was more time in Kennebunkport for shopping after lunch since we had to wait about 15-20 minutes to get seated in the restaurant. If I were to return here, I would plan to spend my time in Kennebunkport. Read Less

We booked through the cruise line. We rode on a huge passenger bus. The guide was informative. The scenery along the drive was good. Kennebunkport was beautiful! The three ladies I was on the tour with and I wished we could have had hours there so we could go through more of the shops, gotten something to eat, and had some time just to relax and take in the beautiful town's atmosphere. We had about an hour or so there, then we had to board the bus. We were taken past the former President's residence and their children's residences next it on the same property. It was a beautiful place and very interesting to get a glimpse of. Then we were taken back to Portland and released from the tour. We had HOURS here. Good in that we could shop and lunch at our leisure. BUT, we all wish we'd had a two or three less hours here and had those two or three extra in Kennebunkport. So the excursion only gets an average rating from me. Read Less

This was a 6-hour excursion with a tour of Portland, visit to a lighthouse and then to Kennebunkport. The bus was nice, but the windows did not have proper sightseeing glass, so when looking out at them you were really looking at the other side of the bus. Very frustrarting. The hour-long stop at the lighthouse was 45 minutes too long. No restrooms, no benches. Just a walk to the lighthouse and back. There is a gift shop but unless you are the first bus of the day, it is too crowded to get into. Kennebunkport is a cute little downtown area, but we were warned to find a restaurant immediately or we would be eating take-out or missing lunch completely. Luckily, we picked a restaurant right next to the bus parking lot and the food was very good. Wandered around for a half hour and then back on the bus. Relaxing excursion. Our guide was very knowledgeable. Read Less

It was actually Kennebunk with scenic cruise but weather was so bad we didn't take the cruise. Spent most of the time on the bus or in a shop because of weather and yet they only refunded $10. Pretty sure a scenic cruise on it's own would've been more than $10. Guest services said they'd refund $59 but then it was $10. NOT HAPPY about that!! Read Less
