Live it Up - Ride a Fire Truck!
Enjoy an intimate and fully narrated tour while riding in style on an original vintage fire engine. Our tour explores the entire peninsula of Portland and is a great way of learning about the past as well as hearing stories about our beloved city from our local guides. Seating high on top of the fire engine provides amazing views of Casco Bay from the East End to many of the beautiful mansions located on the West End. A view like this offers fantastic opportunities for taking photographs! We also include information on where to shop and places to eat and drink. Our personal tour of Portland is fun and exciting for all ages!
Portland Fire Engine Co. operates a unique multimedia history tour of Portland, Maine aboard a vintage fire engine. We explore Portland’s peninsula and its many lighthouses and forts as well as the amazing architectural buildings hidden inside of the cobblestoned streets that make up our wonderful city. Though our tour is aboard a vintage vehicle and takes you into Portland’s past, our guides love sharing information about the city today; making it a great first thing to do when you arrive in Portland to get to know our city and plan the rest of your trip!
The fire engine tours are approximately 50 minutes in length and are fully narrated with a very knowledgeable guide displaying high resolution photographs from the Maine Historical Society through our on-board multimedia system, which includes a large, flat LED TV. We carry 12 people and thus for larger groups we split the parties up allowing time for shopping, eating, or just exploring the Old Port.
When it comes to special events, sometimes you just need to go BIG! Our 13-person fire truck is the perfect way to enhance any major event you’re planning. We offer private chartered trips for all occasions. Our birthday party packages include fire hats and coloring books. We also offer wedding packages for the bride and groom, a very unique and priceless experience.
