PORTLAND, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- A local realtor and a Portland tour company are joining forces.

Portland Discovery Land and Sea Tours are taking people on trolley tours that showcase more than just the city's scenery. Benchmark Real Estate is showing them homes that are for sale. It's an idea the two companies have been thinking about for years. Today, they launched Real Tours. Its maiden voyage attracted three couples from the greater Portland area, looking to see what's out there.

"Some of these neighborhoods I've never been in," Cecilia Estrada of South Portland said. "I've never been down this street. It's beautiful. Portland has so much to offer. The architectural nuances, all the different parts of the city that come together, it's just a really cool place.

The tours happen every Sunday and are free. You can reserve seats on the Real Tours website.
