Great guide!
Dora_T, Oct 2023
The most memorable part of food tour was my group! They were amazing and the food was we tried was great! Our tour guide Renee was really nice and knowledgeable, she also provided some input on places to visit and history of area. One of their partner restaurants (Sidestreet) was not accommodating and sat us outside (chilly) even thou they weren’t even packed. We arrived on time and Renee apologized profusely even thou it was definitely not her fault at all!!! Place is popular so doesn’t really need the business I guess. Food was really good thou.., but, not a good partner.
Decent tour, but not worth the price
Brian_D, Oct 2023
This tour was just OK. Our guide was actually really great, but the food offerings were quite small proportions and for the price we paid, we expected to be much more satiated. We were hungry less than an hour after we finished! Also, the tour didn't even include some of Bar Harbor and Maine's best-known foods like popovers and blueberry pie... :( Sure, we had a lobster slider and blueberry soda, but we spent over half an hour in an olive oil and vinegar tasting room. That seemed like a weak filler that didn't contribute and just wasted our time and money. For the price of this excursion, we would recommend skipping and doing something else.
Disappointing.
Greg_N, Oct 2023
Too much food too fast. We walked around one block and ate 5 times. Not much history of the town. Our tour guide seemed tired and worn down.

Awesome! Everyone should take this

We enjoyed a great experience with the culinary tour and our guide Renee made that possible. She was knowledgeable and informative but also gave much insight into the historical aspect of Maine. A great day.

Thank you so much for your review! We are so glad it was a great experience for you!
Disappointed
Joseph_G, Aug 2023
We were able to see and learn about some of the history and parts of town that were off the beaten path. Shouldn't call this a culinary tour as the food was good but not what we expected. Basically nothing remarkable or outstanding. Tour guide Renee talked way too much about herself, her life and experiences, places she's been and worked. Also shared personal details of her late husband's demise. Not at all appropriate for this tour. Can't recommend this tour, not worth the price.
Response from Host, Aug 2023
We are very sorry to hear that you were disappointed on your tour with Renee. Renee consistently receives 5-star reviews so we are very surprised to hear this. She prides herself on being a local and she loves sharing her Maine experience with everyone. We are glad she showed you some off the beaten path areas of Bar Harbor and we are glad you learned some history! We do hope you will give us another chance to redeem ourselves!
Bar Harbor food is splendid!
JoAnn_F, Jul 2023
The 10:15 am start time was a little early for me to fully enjoy lunch-treats (lobster slider), but overall, the food choices were spot-on representative of Bar Harbor and scrumptious. I’ve never tasted a better Italian sandwich or crab cake in my life! And one of the best surprises was the exquisite Fiore balsamic vinegar and olive oil samples! Our tour guide was a short-term Bar Harbor resident, but lifelong food industry worker who has lived and worked globally. As a result, I was left wanting to know more about Bar Harbor food history and culture and less about everywhere else. All in all a really good tour with potential to be outstanding.
Response from Host, Jul 2023
Thank you, JoAnn, for your review. We always appreciate hearing feedback like yours so that we can continually improve our tours. Thanks again and we hope to see you again soon!

Barbara_D, Jul 2023
Had a great time and learn a lot about the area. Tour guide was. friendly. Would highly recommend this tour. Barb and Kathy.
Good overview of the area
Sue_F, Jul 2023
The food was delicious. Renee was our tour guide. She was not as entertaining as some of the reviews I read about the other guides but she has a long history in the area. Because she is fairly new (we were her 10th group), I felt like her presentation was as practiced and she talked about her personal life a little more than I expected. The tour is a little pricey but I would do it again.
Response from Host, Jul 2023
Hi Sue, thank you for taking the time to write a nice review of your tour with us. We are glad to hear you'd do it again on a return visit!

Our tour guide was Randy, he was excellent. Engaging and so knowledgeable about the history of the area and the food we sampled. The food was plentiful, and we left with stuffed bellies. Delicious food, beautiful views!
