    Everything was Great! Easy to get tickets, Since trying to get park reservations for vehicles are so hard to get to see Cadillac Mountain. Rick was very knowledgeable about Arcadia Park history. What Beautiful views of Bar Harbor.

    Fantastic tour!

    Excellent tour of Acadia National Park! Dave, the driver and narrator, did a great job telling the history of the park and stories that brought everything to life. He stuck to the schedule which allowed ample time at each stop. My husband and I enjoyed it so much! This tour was perfect for me as I have mobility issues, and it still allowed me to experience the sheer beauty of this park! Highly recommended!

    Narrator/Bus driver had kits if good information. He had mad driving skills. He shared his videos and pics of the park which was great because it was foggy and rainy the entire trip. He was awesome!
    Short, but great overview of the park!

    Wonderful Bar Harbor and Acadia NP Tour
    Debra_S, Oct 2023
    We had a fabulous guide on our tour- informative and funny. Although the view from the top of Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National Park was all fog, it was still beautiful. Our guide pointed out scenic views on the drive through the park and in Bar Harbor. He knew his history and had lots of stories. Very worthwhile!
    Beautiful Bar Harbor

    Great narrator with great stories. He pointed out a lot of points of interest. Acadia Park is so beautiful.
    Kathleen_P, Oct 2023
    Rick, our tour guide made this a memorable experience for our group. He was a wealth of knowledge and also shared a lot of trivial information….when your guides loves their job, it shows. We had the right amount of time for each of the stops. Even though the weather was a bit unpredictable, Rick kept the coach comfortable and It was very clean. The bathroom stops were most appreciated. Well worth the money we paid. I would recommend this tour to anyone. I am so glad we included a bus tour on our trip to Maine and a visit to Acadia national Park. Thank you very much!
