This was a great way to avoid traffic and parking issues and to see highlights that could later be explored. Highly recommend online advanced ticket purchase - we did this and discovered the tour was sold out when we arrived at the bus. When you purchase a ticket online, you still have to go to the booth physically and pick up a ticket - your receipt is not your ticket. The bus was a comfortable coach with seating for about 12 people. Lots of narration about history and geology, so bring your airbuds if you aren't into that.

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.

Our tour guide/driver was very knowledgeable about the area and what we saw on the drive. She had a great personality and was very engaging. The bus was comfortable. The length of the stops could have been longer. My husband and I took a very brisk walk around the top of Cadillac mountain. That took up the entire stop time. The second stop at Thunder Hole was a better length of time. However we toured Acadian national Park at the end of the season. Had we tour during the peak tourist season getting down to thunder hole and back to the bus with any pictures would have been challenging. The third and final stop was a restroom break, botanical garden and spring, and the gift shop. There was plenty of time to complete these activities for the most part. However with covid-19 and social distancing issues they only allowed five people in the gift shop at one time so there was a line. Anyone wanting to tour the gift shop I would recommend doing that first prior to any restroom breaks due to the line.

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

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.

Our tour guide was sensational. He was informative and funny and had a VERY broad range of interests. He was a great driver and the mechanics of meeting, loading the bus, finding toilets and moving around the park was seamless.

What a great way to see Acadia! I've been to Acadia National Park a few times and this tour was by far the best experience. Our guide provided a wealth of information on the history and area. I learned so much! We also visited during the peak season, so crowds are a challenge especially with parking and accessing certain areas. However, when you're with Acadia National Park Tours, you have VIP access and do not have to worry about trying to find parking! We were dropped off at each location and did not have to walk far. The transportation was smooth, spacious, and includes A/C :) I highly recommend for newbies to Acadia for an overview of the park, as well as families, or groups traveling together. In addition, the customer service is excellent! I emailed the company prior to the trip to ask a few questions and they responded immediately. A++ service.

Mike was truly knowledgeable and even though it was foggy and we weren’t able to see anything on top of the mountain, he kept the jokes flowing. We called it the “just imagine” tour. Very easy checking and departure process.

Our tour guide, an older gentleman, was very knowledgeable and provided just enough historical information to be interesting, yet fun. It was nice to be able to enjoy the view along the drive without having to worry about obtaining passes (to Cadillac Mountain) or driving. Definitely recommend this tour if you want a short tour of the park, or to help you decide how to spend additional time in the park.

Mostly I want to recommend this company because they have the highest integrity. Though not within their control (weather made getting from our cruise ship to Bar Harbour delayed), the staff CHEERFULLY scheduled us for a later tour (the 2.5 hour tour rather than the premium 3.5 hr tour). When we got there, they had us ready to go and we had a delightful tour with our tour guide/driver. Then after returning home, I found they had REIMBURSED us, unasked, for the difference between the cost of the 2 tours. I would definitely recommend anyone going to Acadia National Park to take an Acadia National Park Tour, and then if you have your own car or other transportation, go back to do more hiking and exploring in and through the Park.
