Portland by the Foot guided historical walking tours

Guided walking tours that will knock your socks right off!

Storytelling with heart, humor, and humanity

Portland by the Foot tour group on the Commercial Street waterfront Join Portland by the Foot's local guide Dugan Murphy for an unforgettable jaunt through Maine's largest city. A recipient of Tripadvisor's 2023 Best of the Best Awards, he is the top-ranked guide in Maine, #2 in New England, #12 nationwide, and in the top 1% of historical tour guides worldwide. He's combed through piles of archives to find the most intriguing stories in Portland's history and boiled them down into an inclusive, empowering, and surprising constellation of tales you won’t hear on other tours. That's why Maine Historical Society made him their official tour partner!

We're inspired by the intriguing, surprising, empowering – and too often untold – stories of marginalized communities, peoples, and histories. Each lovingly crafted tour is designed to broaden your sense of what Portland and Maine have been and could be, taking you on a journey beyond what other tours offer.

We promise: you’ll leave you feeling brighter and more curious about not just Portland, but the wider world.

We also offer private tours.

A portion of every ticket sale will help fund the restoration of the Abyssinian Meeting House, Maine's oldest – and America's third-oldest – standing Black church.
