Welcome to Maine Day Ventures, formerly Maine Foodie Tours. We are actively building our 2023 schedule with Culinary Tours, Historical Walks, Gardening Strolls, “Doggie and Me” walks, adventures with oysters and more! All activities are like adventures. We keep them small, highly interactive and authentic. We love to host private tours, and in 2023, a Portland experience may also be requested in Spanish or French.

Join us as we explore Portland’s beautiful and historic West End. This tour comprises a 2+hour walk viewing churches and cathedrals, museums, squares and statues, and the beautiful residential areas.
This 2 hour walking tour along revitalized Main Street shares the “proud city rising where the water falls”. From its beginning in 1855, your local guide will share historical highlights of this bustling town.
Travel back in time to when Kennebunkport was a thriving shipbuilding town. Stroll Maine Street, weave your way through side streets, hear the stories and see the homes of artisans of the late 18th century.
Welcome to Maine Day Ventures
We invite you to visit Maine this year! The weather is (mostly) beautiful, the food is fantastic, the guides are delightful, and we are busier than ever! We are following all protocols for your safety along with our valuable tour guides and partners, remaining on top of all guidelines as they evolve. Currently, the Maine CDC posts daily updates regarding our COVID transmission rates by county. If/when the rate is above “moderate”, we will be asking guides and guests to wear masks when indoors. Once seated and served, they may be removed. On our culinary tours, we are dining mostly, although not entirely, outside during Summer and early Fall months for maximum enjoyment.
Our history tours are ideal now and a 100% touch-less experience, offered only outside enjoying the sights, and learning the history and culture of our seacoast communities. If you would feel better about a private tour, we are happy to arrange this for you anytime. Just give us a call or fill out our online “private events” form.
The beautiful weather is here and we are working every day to create exciting experiences for you to safely enjoy. We hope to see you when the timing is right for you.

All of our highly interactive tours are limited in size and will entertain and educate you all along the way. You will make new friends on a leisurely stroll visiting 4-7 locations, depending upon your tour.
You may always contact us to discuss a private group tour as we love to custom create an activity for you at any time.
We still have more in the works, so check back in or join our mailing list to be kept in the loop. We look forward to taking you on a taste through town!
