We took the two hour carriage ride which was called Rockefeller's Bridges. Two beautiful horses pulled our carriage through the woods and past three of the stone bridges which we would not have been able to see without taking this trip. Our driver let us get out to explore a little around one of the bridges. The driver was very... More

fell in love with the whole thing, horses tour guides, and the tours themselves, must do, but must make reservations days ahead, it gets booked quickly, we didn't know, were very dissaponted but were told to call at the end of the day to see if there were cancellations and voila!!!! there was!

We waited until the day of to reserve our seats on a carriage ride, and were lucky to get in. (I recommend you call to reserve ahead of time). We were only able to do the one hour Day Mountain loop, but that was still extraordinary. We arrived early, so walking around and visiting other horses added to the experience.... More

I was fortunate enough to be able to join the two hour Rockefeller Bridge Tour today, with Betty, and the team of Willie and Waylon. What a wonderful two hours. It's a great deal and I highly recommend it. NOTE: plan ahead, book at least a week in advance to secure the trip you want. Also, be sure to have... More

We took the two hour morning bridge tour. Our driver/guide was a young girl who knew about the area. Is was nice to see parts of the park that we would not see. The horses were named Willy and Waylon. I would recommend. Kids would like it too.

How relaxing - We had a beautiful day and our guide (Betty) was superb! The horses are well trained and we saw a little of Acadia NP that most people miss out on. Give it a try!

We signed up for the two hour bridges carriage ride not sure what to expect. What a pleasant surprise. Our driver, Betty, was well versed in the history of the area and shared her knowledge. The early fall weather was spectacular on this day. What an enjoyable way to spend two hours. This is highly recommended for anyone wanting to... More

We had the best time with a very knowledgable guide. Mitchell was full of interesting facts and a personality that reached out to all! What a great ride and new information he shared. I loved his line that questions lead to conversations!!! Don't miss it!

We had the 2 hour 3 bridge carriage ride and thoroughly enjoyed the 84 yr old tour guide, Elmin Mitchell. What a wealth of information. The carriages are like those you'd have on a hay ride, so they are not shaded, but you are on a shady road most of the time. They are easily accessed with only a few... More

We took the one hour carraige ride. Our drivers were.entertaining and informative. The horses were well behaved. I think it was 20 bucks for adults, it was worth the price. I would do this again. Did not feel ripped off.
