Awesome experience
A.J. was awesome. Because of heavy rain, we were unable to go to Acadia National Park. Due to his great knowledge of the area, he was able to fill our day by taking us to gorgeous, quaint towns in Coastal Maine. He took us to the botanical gardens and everyone in our group greatly enjoyed it He is an awesome tour guide. I highly recommend this tour.
