  • 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 bus was old with high backs. We were on the last seat on the right side.
    We did not see anything except at the stops. We were very disappointed!

  • Driver didn’t count how many passengers. We waited more than ten minutes at the first stop, because he didn’t sure if all passengers were on the bus.
    The driver only made two stops on this trip. It supposed three stops as the description,when we booked this tour.
    It hardly see outside while sitting in the bus.
    Also it took less than 2.5hiurs.
