Bus tours live or die with the guide. Mike, with a bit of gray, curly hair and a dry sense of humor, made our tour terrific. New buses with larger windows would be a plus. Still a great time.

We took a two hour tour that was very informative and that deliberately made stops at the top (Cadillac Mountain), in the more forested area (Sieur de Monts Nature Center) and down on the coast at Thunder Hole. Excellent guide. This was a really well...More

You can buy tickets at Testa's Restaurant on Main St. in Bar Harbor. Our tour left at I think 11. There are other tours after that as well. I'm sorry I didn't see this question sooner. I hope I'm not too late.
