      Perfect quick tour of the park
      We only had two nights in Bar Harbor, so this was the perfect quick tour of Acadia for my family (husband has a bad hip, so hiking was not an option). Our tour guide was amazing and had many great stories for us. Didn’t hurt that it was absolutely a picture perfect day!

      Acadia Overview
      Driver/guide was friendly and knowledgeable. Good way to see great areas of Acadia. The views at two stops were incredible and Jordan's Pond a nice place to finish.

      She was very knowledgeable of the area. Nice to have someone else drive. Loved the Thunder Hole. Wish we could have had a chance to eat at the last shop. Only reservations

      The tour was exceptional with the best tour guide/driver. Accommodated us by allowing us to change to an earlier your time. Highly recommend.

      Amazing time!
      This was an awesome tour and I was so glad I did this versus a ship excursion which is always a giant bus on which you had to wait for everyone to get on and off. Heather was our guide and she was wonderful - so knowledgeable about everything - she was quite a historian! She worked on the estates of the Rockefeller and Ford families so had a lot of insight and stories to share. She gave us the history of every stop and the park too. We were blessed with a picture perfect sunny day. We stopped at Cadillac Mountain first which was breathtaking, then some garden (not that interesting - it was literally a restroom stop), then Thunderhole which was gorgeous as well. Last stop was Jordan’s Pond which was a place for the elite in the old days to have tea - the view is lovely and there’s a nice gift shop and cafe. We got back to Main Street Bar Harbor with plenty of time before our ship left and were able to explore this picturesque little town at the very end of the season before everything shut down! Don’t miss the tide going out (8-12 feet drop!) to reveal the sand bar - you literally get the chance to walk along the ocean floor to the other island!

      Informative during ride, not during stops
      Informative during tour, not helpful during stops. Was "on" during the drive and was not at all during stops. S Driver seemed annoyed and disinterested anytime we engaged in conversation during the stops. Felt like he was performing the tour

      Excellent way to your the park!
      Lovely tour with an entertaining and knowledgeable guide. Best way to see the park without one of us having to drive. The guide provided information we wouldn’t have had access to and the van was extremely comfortable.

      Acadia National Park Tour
      The booking process was simple and we booked a 10am departure. The van departed on time with several stops at key locations. The van seats were very comfortable and the whole van was spotless. We lucked out and had a clear blue sunny day with incredible views. But what made the trip exceptional was our tour guide/driver Rodney. He had a great personality, shared interesting additional facts, good sense of humor and was a conscientious driver even helping other pedestrians and drivers. Rodney has a great slide show and air dropped some awesome pictures and videos. He even apologized not being able to transmit to Android phones! Thanks Rodney!!!

    We really, really enjoyed this tour immensely and recommend this to anyone who is visiting the park for the first time. My appreciation for the pork and knowledge of what to look for was made complete by this tour. The tour guide was both informative and delightfully entertaining. My adult daughter, who was skeptical of this tour, ended up loving it. We didn’t have reservations for Cadillac mountain, but a tour will get you up there! We talked about Acadia the entire 8 hour drive home.

    We booked a 2 1/2 hour bus tour from Bar Harbor to Acadia national Park for a cruise excursion. The bus was conveniently a couple of blocks from the cruise port- we met at a restaurant to get our tickets so we were able to use the bathroom. The bus was a small bus approximately 24 people - a very comfortable clean coach bus. The driver and tour guide RONNY G kept us highly entertained the entire trip. He had on a headset, so we were all able to hear him clearly.. he was very knowledgeable about everywhere and was giving us facts about history, as well as telling awesome jokes. We had three stops in the park which had bathrooms and we could walk around and take pictures. On our way back he shared some of his top pictures as well as showing us a book with pictures. I would definitely recommend this trip and hopefully you will get Ronny because that was the icing on the cake.!!!

    Couldn’t have asked for a better tour to Bar Harbor’s Cadillac Mountain and beyond. Our tour guide and driver, Santo, was truly outstanding, explaining the entire history of the area with much detail, and time to time throwing in entertaining anecdotes about the cast of characters. It was worth every penny. Highly recommended.

    Horrific rain tremendously compromised this tour; in spite of this, our guide marshaled on, providing valuable background information on the various sites. We used his insight on a later trip to Acadia in our rental car 2 days later, when the weather was more favorable. I liked the fact that it took less than 15 minutes to drive to the summit of Cadillac Mountain. Note: if you opt to do this on your own, online reservations for this specific trek must be made beforehand.

    We visited Acadia N.P. during early August and didn't want to be bothered trying to find parking at the popular spots so booked this tour. Also thought this would be a good introduction to the Park with expert insight and we weren't disappointed. We, including our teenage daughter, enjoyed the knowledgeable and fun commentary, our guide was excellent, and the amount of times at the stops was about right.
    Would recommend that you do this early in your visit to Acadia N.P so that it will help you enjoy the park even more.

    Solo female traveler and first time to Maine. Checking off my Bucket list! Traveled in Oct.'19 to enjoy fall foliage. Maine was my first stop on the driving portion through Maine/NH/VT/MA/CT. I also used my Chase points to book this tour and it was seamless. Unfortunately, I was very ill the day prior to the tour and they were very professional, kind and accommodating to change my tour time to the following day. The tour guide was incredible. Older gentleman who was very knowledgeable, living in the area all of his life, knowing the park like the back of his hand. We were given well enough time at each stop to explore and take in the breathtaking beauty Acadia offers. The bus was comfortable. Many international visitors on board and guide was very good about speaking clearly for those who English was not their 1st language. Excellent tour - highly recommended!

    What an awesome tour! Our tour guide, Mike, was wonderful! He filled the tour with so much interesting information about MDI and the places we visited. The traffic around a few of the sites was beyond busy, but Mike navigated it with patience and ease. We went on a beautiful day and all of the views from Cadillac Mountain and Thunder Hole were breathtaking…we could have spent hours at each site.

    Very informative about the history of Bar Harbor and Acadia, etc. I love a bus tour if its not too long and this was a 2.5 hour tour which was enough. The driver had good stories and good strong history about the area. Enjoyed the ride to the top of Cadillac Mountain. Fortuantely, I had already come up the mountain in my own car the day before and had seen the views because the day we came was mostly fog. Still we got to Thunder Hole which I hadn't seen and that was impressive. The driver was good and safe and entertaining. I would have stressed even more that there shoudl be no talking on the bus. I had a hard time hearing him sometimes because people behind me were having their own conversations. Good tour overall. I recommend it to anyone who likes to learn a bit more about where they are visiting.

    On a cold, very windy day (but with sun shining and sparkling), this tour was a fantastic way to see notable areas of the park. We had enough time at each stop. Our guide, Santo, was EXTREMELY knowledgeable, professional, courteous and fun and made the trip even more enjoyable (give him a raise).

    Just a perfect introduction to Acadia.

    The driver never wiped down the seats after the previous tour. The tour driver Never stopped talking about him and his wife. Your Brochure shows a picture of Thunder Hole but it is not like the picture. Unless the driver took us to the wrong spot- there is no walkway to Thunder Hole. A lot of passengers did not go down because it was dangerous to go down because of all the rocks. Better off driving on your own> Not worth the money
