This was our first time in Bar Harbor, and we wanted to make sure we experienced the key highlights and saw some hidden gems we would have otherwise missed. This tour delivered both.

The minivan we rode in was immaculately clean and comfortable.

Our guide, Nathan, arrived at our Airbnb promptly, on time. My wife gets carsick easily, and after telling Nathan about that, he drove the windy roads of Acadia at the right speed so she had zero discomfort, something I am rarely able to do! His knowledge of the island was fantastic, and he was able to answer most of our questions. I enjoyed being able to enjoy the sights and not worry about driving. That would have been impossible on my own.

Some of the hidden gems we saw: beaver lodges, the coolest carriage trail bridges (we got out at each one, which was great, and we never would have seen the last one, by far the best, on our own), and Asticou Azalea Garden (a less visited but amazing place).

Most notable is that we had heavy fog most of the afternoon which obscured many mountaintop and water views. Nathan could have easily said, “If the fog wasn’t so bad you would be able to see…” over and over, but instead, he embraced the situation and helped us focus on what we could see. Amazing!

The four hours flew by. I am glad we chose the 4-hour tour over the 3-hour tour. We’ll worth it and highly recommended!

I’m so glad we decided to take this private tour of Acadia National Park. It was the perfect way to see all the highlights and we were so lucky to have David as our guide! He took us to all the places on our list (plus some) — managing to do it at the best time to avoid the crowds as well as finding a parking spot close to whatever it was we wanted to see. He was friendly, accommodating (always willing to take photos of us— and he’s really good at it!), funny and very knowledgeable of the area, sharing lots of stories and insights that we would never have known about if we were on our own. And the fact that he and my husband shared the same love of music made our conversations even more fun and enjoyable. Thank you David…wishing you all the best!!

I couldn't deal with carpooling 13 members of my family from site to site in Acadia National Park so we booked a private tour. Our driver Paul was a great source of knowledge about Acadia (and much more.) Despite dreary weather, he kept us upbeat with his colorful stories and good nature. My Mom was especially happy to have a fellow ex-New Yorker to banter with. Great trip. Thanks, Paul and At Your Service Tours. Highly recommend.

We were on a cruise and all the excursions to Acadia National Park were filled early. Boy, am I glad they were! If we had booked a tour of Acadia through the cruise lines, we never would have had the good fortune of booking through At Your Service Tours! What a wonderful experience! Everyone I spoke with at the company were helpful and they even altered the time of our tour because we were late getting off the boat due to customs check. Our tour guide was Paul. The van was clean with cold bottled water offered throughout the trip. Paul kept us laughing the entire time and had answers to all of our many questions. His knowledge of the area was exceptional, and his passion for Bar Harbor and Acadia was quite evident. Paul showed us areas that I can't imagine most groups were able to see and explained history along the way. We had a 4 hour tour and he had us back for lobster before we had to board the ship. What a wonderful day with a wonderful tour guide, Paul! I cannot recommend At Your Service tours more highly! They were excellent!

We had a great experience with this company, especially our driver-Dave! we told him the most important areas for us to visit, and he made sure we got to have time at each place. He also took us to a couple spots we didn't know about! We enjoyed his humor and stories, and our daughter made sure he was in our family photo at the end of the trip!

Traffic is crazy and it was so nice for my husband to enjoy the tour and not have to worry about driving.

We highly recommend this company (and driver Dave) for a private tour of Acadia!

Dave is definitely a wonderful local guide! He works hard to make sure each tour group sees what they are interested in seeing. Having a private tour really makes the most of your time and interests and we handle all the hassles while you have fun!

I rarely write reviews, but wanted to acknowledge what a great tour this is and what an awesome guide Grant is. The park, of course, is amazing, but there is so much to see that I highly recommend taking a guided tour at the outset of your visit to give you a good overview. Our guide, Grant, was very personable, professional, and extremely knowledgeable. We’ve used several guides when traveling, and Grant is one of the best we’ve ever had. His enthusiasm for, and love of, the park is infectious. Kudos!!

Wonderful tour with Katherine to Acadia National Park and other stops. Very easy to book in advance as we were coming in to Bar Harbor by cruise ship for only one day. There were 5 of us on the tour, as well as a crocheted lobster. Katherine was extremely flexible and knowledgeable. In addition to the stops listed in the itinerary, she stopped at Thuya Garden, a hidden delight with massive flowers in bloom. All in all, a wonderful day spent with Katherine.

A very enjoyable tour, albeit a little on the pricy side given the fact that the fog totally obscured the view from Cadillac Summit. Not anyone’s fault, but nonetheless disappointing. On the plus side, Catherine, our guide was very professional, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic about the national park. Her recommendations for dinners and rainy day activities were spot-on and greatly appreciated. All in all, a great experience!

Our family had an amazing time and thoroughly enjoyed our tour. David was awesome and took us to many places that we would not have had time to see based on our compressed schedule. I highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to see many of the sites of Acadia in one day.

After being the skeptic, my wife and I had a spectacular experience with Bill T. The tour was energetic, informative, entertaining and it was one of the highlights of our trip. We have been to Maine before and to Bar Harbor. After we were done with the tour, we got to experience the other 90% of what the area was all about. Bill T is a guaranteed excellent experience. I started the day with a guide and truly believe we ended the day with a friend.

Bill spends his off time studying the area and continues to invest in his own value as a guide.

If there is any question, just do it!!!!!!
