About Us

Khaled and Jen are both adventurers at heart

Khaled grew up in the deserts of the Middle East while Jen was raised on the farmlands of central Maine, yet both share the same wanderlust and love of travel. They have traveled both solo and together throughout the world.

On a whim, Khaled packed his bags and headed for Juneau, Alaska; Jen soon followed. There, he sold shore excursions to cruise ship passengers and Jen spent her time as a tour guide. As luck had it, this set the blueprint for the next great adventure. After four great summers in Alaska, they came back home full of experience, enthusiasm and a family; thus The Scenic Route Maine Tours & The Blue Lobster Gift Shop were born.

Our small group style means a lot to us. It allows for more interaction, exceptional service, and an opportunity for us to answer any questions and provide personal recommendations. Our stellar TripAdvisor reviews proves that small groups and excellent value, combined with premium quality are a great mix. Other companies use larger vehicles with more people which allows for little to no interaction.

With our local and knowledgeable guides, you can enjoy traditional highlights of the area and get a backstage view of traditional, daily Maine life. Join us and discover the Scenic Route’s “small group” difference. We’re here to make your Portland experience a memorable one!
