We took this tour on our first morning at the park so we could get some history and get a feel for the areas we wanted to go back and spend more time. There weren't many of us touring in the rain that morning, so the driver was able to add in an extra stop. He was very interesting and... More

I did not actually go on any tour but made the tour myself by car. To my chagrin it did not turn out the way I had expected as rain was pouring down and it was mostly fogged in. I came here because I had heard of its beauty but did not actually see all that much due to unpredictable... More

The view left me speechless. It was great taking a tour instead of navigating the road and trying to admire the scenery at the same time.

The staff and drivers are friendly and informative. Most are 2nd and 3rd generation MDI residents. The stops are beautiful and you are given enough time to see each sight unlike the other bus tour in town. I was very happy and pleased with the kindness and service knowledge these employees showed. I would recommend this tour to anyone coming... More

Funky old school bus to ride in but a wonderful guide. Long time resident of Bar Harbor and knows his stuff. Easy to hear and understand and able to convey the information clearly. I highly recommend them.
