John was the perfect tour guide for my husband and I to see the area. He has lived in the area much of his life and has a family history that weaves into the city of Poetland. Very interesting! He can put together personal tours based on how far you want to run and what you want to see. Prompt... More

A group of us did the 3 mile Brewery Tour of Portland ME and it was excellent. We learned a lot about the history and some new breweries in the area (and we have lived in ME all of our lives). Sampled local spirits and beers that were all great.

My friends and I just did a brew pub running tour with John and Melanie and had a great time! We all live in Portland, but we are always looking for new activities to do in the area, and this one definitely did not disappoint. The brew pub tour mixed two of our favorite activities; beer and running. I've never... More

We did the brewery running tour (3 mi, approx 2 hrs). It was great way to experience some of the amazing local breweries in Portland. Don't worry of you're not much of a runner. John had a lot of cool info about the city's brewing and drinking history and a great rapport with the breweries. I would definitely recommend it... More

The brewery run tour was a great way to drink my way around Portland without feeling guilty. It was clear John, the guide, has clearly forged great relationships as we were given the special treatment and served before other groups. John was extremely knowledgeable about Portland in general but also about beer in general. The group was completely flexible with... More

Had a great time on the running tour today. We are Portland natives but still thought that the brewery tour sounded like a fantastic way to spend a Saturday afternoon. We were right. John did a great job explaining the history of the city and kept a manageable pace the whole time. He was very personable and clearly has a... More

Found Port City running online and signed-up for brewery run with really no idea what to expect. Luckily it was pretty awesome. Over the course of 2.5 miles we hit four different breweries that had a ton of free samples. Nate was a great guide who knew a ton about Portland and it's brewing history. Couldn't have asked for anything... More

This was a great way to explore the city and enjoy everyone's favorite thing.. beer! John was a great tour guide and led us to many fun & unique breweries, all while giving us a history lesson on Prohibition in Portland. As a newcomer to the city, it was fun trying new things and hearing about the past. He was... More

It was our first time to Portland, and we just arrived after a train from Boston.Not only was John helpful with planning before we arrived, but it was the perfect way to kick off our visit. We saw the waterfront, town, marina, and historical sites. He stopped at appropriate times to explain different sites and give us breaks. Restaurant suggestions... More

This was the first trip to Portland for my wife and I. We've been on running tours in other cities but I will say this is the best running tour we've been on. We aren't great runners but John was able to customize a tour which not only catered to our abilities but it also allowed us to see the... More
