Culinary Walking Tour Portland's Culinary Walking Tours

This year we have TWO culinary walking tours around the Old Port. Join us in the morning or for a slightly different tour in the afternoon.

These leisurely-paced walking tours carve a path through the streets of the charming Old Port. A hundred years ago this area was home to fish houses, canneries, industrial factories and textile mills. Unlike a century ago, when the air was heavy with industrial smoke, today the air is fragrant with the fresh ocean breeze and scents of coffee houses, bakeries, and award-winning restaurants, all tempting passersby at they wend their way through the scenic narrow streets.

Our friendly and engaging tour guides will take you to several Old Port venues where you will have an opportunity to sample delectable, Maine-inspired foods and obtain a behind-the-scenes look at those who craft these culinary delights. Along the way, you will learn about the colorful local history unique to the "Port City."

As you sample the fare at the various stops, our tour guides and proprietors will reveal the history behind their industry, the uniquely Maine products that are used and a little hint or two as to why they are simply award-winning year after year!

What they're saying

Our group of Seacoast Newcomers took a foodie tour to Portland with two wonderful foodie tour guides:  Chuck and Stephanie.  I would like to write a note of appreciation to tell them how pleased we were with the event... It will forever be a favorite and many of the women plan on repeating it soon with their husbands. 

Katherine Hodgeman, Cooking with the Chefs

"We had a wonderful tour of Portland Maine today! Our tour guide Pat was knowledgeable and enthusiastic while showing us all that Portland has to offer. It was like touring the city with a good friend! The places we stopped at had incredible treats to sample. It was a great way to spend an afternoon and an amazing way to learn about this exciting city in coastal Maine. We would highly recommend this tour and if you get Pat as your guide you are doubly blessed!"
