    Informative tour with convenient pickup/drop-off location
    Arlette_G, Oct 2023
    This tour was narrated by a knowledgeable guide and went through Acadia's most prominent sites with beautiful views. It is a good tour for those who want to visit various sites along the park without a lot of walking or hiking and have limited time.
    Informative tour

    Marilyn_S, Oct 2023
    Such a wonderful tour. The tour operator was a fountain of interesting information. We viewed so much beautiful scenery on the narrated drive through Acadia. The stops were well-planned and enabled us to see the best of the park. The guide was very helpful offering tips for post-tour experiences, too.
    Great experience despite the rain
    Cheryl_M, Oct 2023
    My husband and I really enjoyed the tour. It was very informative. Definitely worth the money. The only drawback was that it was raining, so we did not get a good view of bar Harbor from Cadillac Mountain.
    Best tour in town!

    Our tour guide, Heather, was super friendly and knowledgeable. My favorite stop was at Thunder Hole, but the whole trip was great.
    Worth ever penny! Rick is the best!
    Janice_R, Oct 2023
    Our guide Rick drove this Premium trip backwards so we would have a chance for the fog to lift on Cadillac Mt. It did and the view was spectacular! Rick was very knowledgeable, personable and entertaining. The time per stop was just right. The bus was very comfortable. Excellent trip!
    robin_b, Oct 2023
    Perfect way to see & learn about Acadia NP. My husband could take in the views that otherwise would miss! Our driver was very knowledgeable & friendly! We can return to the park on our own to visit the sites we want to spend more time in!
    Great tour
    Sherry_S, Oct 2023
    Rob was excellent! Very knowledgeable about the park and the history of the area. Definitely would recommend this tour!
    Nice tour to hit the highlights of Acadia
    Eric_T, Oct 2023
    The meeting point was easy to find. The tour hits some interesting spots which is nice when your time is limited on a cruise. The driver shares a lot of interesting stuff, but could dial back the bad jokes & puns
    Thumbs up
    DeAnne_P, Sep 2023
    Heather, the guide, was absolutely fantastic. The sights were beautiful, she gave a lot of great info, and presented it in a fun and interesting way. It was also really nice to not have to worry about finding parking at each stop in the park. I highly recommend this trip.
    Wished they had made more...
    Catherine_S, Sep 2023
    Wished they had made more stops such as sand beach. Not as memorable as other tours taken of the National Parks.
    Great Excursion in Bar Harbor
    Donna_M, Sep 2023
    This was a great tour. Lots of interesting facts and we visited familiar and unfamiliar places. Rob drove us safely up and down Cadillac mountain in a very comfortable bus. I would highly recommend this excursion.
    Great Tour of Acadia National Park
    John_S, Sep 2023
    The Maine coastline was spectacular! Cadillac Mountain provided incredible views for 360 degrees. Our guide was experienced and funny. She provided just the right amount of area history and geological makeup. The stops were spaced about right. Restrooms were clean and well maintained.
    Great quick tour of Acadia National Park hitting the highlights. Our tour guide was an expert on the plants and trees.
    Nina_P, Sep 2023
    The views were amazing! Loved the tidbits of facts about the park and island. The van was also comfortable.
