Description

Is there a better way to take in the sights AND stretch your legs? You begin with a transfer to the bike path, where you will be fitted with the appropriate size bicycle. Shortly after, you will find yourself behind an impassioned guide loaded with history as well as current events of the Portland area.

Just to find your comfort level, the ride begins along a bike path that runs through the Willard Beach community, one of the loveliest areas of the outlying city. Listening as well as following your guide, you will soon find yourself at the Bug Light entrance to the Portland Breakwater, where you will take a break from biking and explore the lighthouse. Take in the great views while you hear about the liberty ships built during the second World War before moving on to another inspiring location.

Next you will approach to the Spring Point Lighthouse, the Portland Harbor Museum and Fort Preble, all wonderful symbols that immortalize this area and its importance along the Eastern coast of our country. Moving between our history and the sweet communities that have developed around these sites delivers a wonderful context for this bike ride.

Continuing on, you will pass through a beautiful beachfront community on your approach to Shore Road, one of Portland's most exclusive addresses. The wonderful access by bike allows you to soak in the area with a little more personal message than if you were to drive it.

Portland Head Light, one of the most famous of the lighthouses, is your next goal and here you will stop and take in another of Portland's claim to fame, the lobster roll. Enjoy while you relax and absorb the ocean view, which creates a lasting memory for this day. But you are not yet done, as there is one more lighthouse to view, and to reach it, you will cycle past the saltwater farms to 2 Lights State Park and the favorite, Kettle Cove.

Counting back, you saw 5 lighthouses with great narration, had a lobster roll and worked off those calories in the most pleasant way!

Shore Excursions

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),

Traveling into Russia can be nerve-wracking (and getting more so every day) -- but ShoreTrips made it easy by providing all of the paperwork and instructions, as well as organizing good guides.

MOSTLY EXCEPTIONAL

By: WENDY from MIAMI


Reviewed on: 04 Jul 2018

We did a private whale watching tour which was incredible. The train ride in Sitka which we were not going to do at first was spectacular. Scenery, comfort - a wonderful way to see the area and spend our time. We signed up for a Mendenhall Glacier trip plus Salmon bake. This one was so very commercial and although the glacier and waterfall were above our expectations, a short time was given to walk there and view. This left out two of our party as they could not move as fast as needed to return in the time frame of one hour. Then the BAKE- the food was marginally ok. They were out of the most important SMORES ingredients. It is crazy but that was advertised (we were willing to break our diets ) and we looked forward to them and then disappointed. The people were nice. the area was pretty but that one I would strongly advise friend not to sign up for.

Great experience. The tours of the Louvre, and Notrre Dame were great. The guide even helped me try to get Eiffel tower admission tickets switched after I had booked them on the wrong date.

Summer Hawaii Cruise

By: CGreene


Reviewed on: 17 Aug 2018

I arranged a church group of 55 for a Hawaiian cruise. This was our first time to use ShoreTrips and we had VIP treatment as compared to the mega busloads arriving from the ship/hotels excursions. Many times we had a site all to ourselves and then were leaving when the larger groups arrived. With all of the excitement about the active volcano, we weren't sure what to expect when we arrived on the Big Island. Those taking the helicopter ride raved about the experience and others were amazed to truly explore, taste and see that there is much more to her than only the volcanos. Every guide was lovely and professional, in fact, when I asked my group of to each submit 2 of their personal favorite photos, one was a guide on the last day in Honolulu for the private Pearl Harbor/airport excursion. It was nice to choose a selection of excursions for my group and ShoreTrips truly worked hard to make every trip come to fruition. Highly recommend all types of excursions with them.
