  • The driver’s corny jokes were amusing . The drive to Cadillac Mountain and the views were spectacular. The thunder hole was at high tide so we didn’t get the full effect.

  • The guide was very professional and enthusiastic. Excellent knowledge of the place and very kind and patient with everyone in the tour

  • Great experience, knowledgeable driver (Rob)! Time at the three stops was sufficient. Would definitely look into booking more tours with this company.

  • Amazing tour. Santo was a wealth of information . We grew much in knowledge of the area! God bless all if you!!!

  • Our bus driver was entertaining, if not a bit corny with his jokes. Our weather was a bit rainy and he was kind to change the route up so we ended up at Cadillac Mtn after the precipitation, rather than at the beginning of the tour. It was a great introduction to Acadia.National Park.

  • Heather our driver was the best. Full of information, great personality and super jokes. Give her a raise. Despite the inclement weather she made the trip the best

  • The guide, Mike, was very well informed and quite funny. He told us many interesting things …not silly, famous people tidbits some tour drivers think is cute.
    The tour experience was comfortable, efficient and on schedule.

  • Very happy with the tour. Knowledgeable driver and very courteous. Would do it again.detailed information concerning all interested areas

  • Great excursion....Our driver John was excellent. He kept everyone in stitches. His knowledge ranged from the area history to geology and more. John gave everyone plenty of photo opportunities. Overall the tour with John was educational and entertaining.

  • The location where to pick up the tickets was half a block from where you get off from the tender. The bus is like a school bus, not like the fancy bus the cruise ships uses but for half the price. The driver+tour guide was very knowledgeable and bubbly, just makes the tour a lot more fun!

  • Great tour driver was very knowledgeable and entertaining. Besides being very informative the tour was much cheaper and included more than the ships tours with similar descriptions. Late October is a good Time to be in Bar Harbor because every thing was closing for the season and prices were attractive.

  • A very enjoyable afternoon in a natural wonderland. Our driver Rob Jordan was very knowledgeable and we had a great time.

  • The tour guide was very knowledgeable, we enjoyed this tour very much. The time we spent getting off the bus was just perfect. The bus was very comfortable.

  • We were on the tour when in Bar Harbor with a cruise ship. The tour gave an excellent impression of the beauty of the National Park.Our guide told us a lot at the different stops and also during the tour. highly recommended tour to get an overview and to come back one day!

  • Guide was very knowledgeable. Made the trip more enjoyable. Would recommend this to trip. It rained the day of our trip, but we learned a lot of facts about the park and the area

  • The trip was a comprehensive look at the Acadia National Park and all its beautiful Autumn colours.Great trip and a fabulous time of year to see all the trees changing colour.

  • Sorry I forgot the guide's name already! He was great - told many stories and made numerous stops along the way. Definitely a bargain. I was worried about the whole tendering process from NCL and whether we'd get ashore in time for the 10:00 trip, but we got up early for tender tickets and were on shore way too early but walked around town for awhile. I highly recommend this trip.

  • Great tour. Tour guide was very friendly, upbeat and knowledgeable. She pointed out local stuff a resident knows.

  • Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable about the park, the area and the history of Bar Harbor. He made the tour very interesting! We would do this tour again and recommend it highly.

  • Great trip, very beautiful scenery. Tour guide very informative and entertaining. Several opportunities to get out and take pictures, pause and enjoy.

  • Great tour and information. Would suggest more than 20 minutes stop at Cadillac mountain. And less time at the 2nd and 3rd stops.

  • Our tour guide Heather was fun, and informative during our tour. Acadia is a beautiful park and a great subject to articulate.

  • If you are in Bar Harbor - seeing Arcadia is a must! Our guide was a “senior woman” with lots of knowledge of the town and park and made sure she told us everything! The views are spectacular and make sure your tour goes to the top of Cadillac Mt as this one did! Not a long tour so plenty of time to enjoy the town of Bar Harbor.

  • It was just what we wanted — we are not into hiking a lot anymore and it was a great way to see a little of Bar Harbor and especially Acadia National Park and its three major points of interest in a condensed amount of time. We love bus tours because they are so informative too. Santo was a great tour guide — humorous and knowledgeable.
