This morning, after breakfast, we will meet our local guide for a driving tour of historic Portland, including a stop at Portland Head lighthouse - Maine's oldest lighthouse. Next, we will take a private, guided tour of another nearby lighthouse that is not normally open to the public. This lighthouse is accessed via a granite jetty (those unable to climb stairs or manage the uneven terrain to the lighthouse will be offered an alternate activity). Enjoy lunch on your own in Freeport, home to the L.L. Bean flagship store and a variety of casual restaurants and cafés. After lunch, sit back and relax as we travel to Rockland - the lobster capital of the world. Here we'll visit the Sail, Power & Steam Museum on Rockland Harbor to learn about the local shipwrecks and see early steam engines, navigational equipment, and ship-building tools. Tonight's lodging and included dinner will be in the Bar Harbor region.

Tips for Perkiomen motorcoach drivers and tour escorts are not included in the price of this tour. We feel that these gratuities should be extended on an individual basis and dictated by the level of service provided.

Motorcoach seating is assigned at the time of reservation but cannot be guaranteed. Although we do our best to keep each traveler in the seat assigned at the time of reservation, there are times that it is necessary to move seat locations.

We have suspended this practice for a period of time. Seat rotation will be explained by your driver or tour escort if reinstated.
