Our unique Maine tour company history is an inspiring story in itself. Owner Keith Nuki had already been working with many of the local tour companies in Portland Maine’s Old Port and is a huge history buff as well as a car guy. It was this combination of these interests and passions that helped him create and establish Vintage Fire Engine Tours around the peninsula of Portland Maine. He wanted a shorter tour of Portland Maine than what the local trolley tours offered. He also wanted a tour vehicle that really reflected Portland Maine’s past. A vintage fire truck seemed like the perfect tour vehicle and made sense considering Portland Maine’s great fire history. Keith retro-fitted the truck so it could seat 13 people safely and mounted a large flat screen TV so you can also view photos of what Portland Maine used to look like back in the day as you drive by different landmarks. He hired a great team of local Maine tour guides to narrate the Portland Maine fire truck tour that you’ll love and remember for years to come. Our Portland Maine tours are a great experience and you’ll learn so much about our beloved city. Come take one of our 50 minute tours of Portland Maine on our vintage fire truck and meet our talented crew.
We have limited capacity seating so make sure you book your tour early enough in advance as we do sell out quickly. You can book your tour online or by calling 207-252-6358. You can also book tickets directly on the truck too! We hope to see you down there for a tour experience you’ll remember in Portland Maine.
