We participated in the Ocean Path Tour, stars on Sand Beach, and Rockefeller's Bridges ranger led tours. I would recommend them to anyone who wants to learn more about the park.

I waffled between poor and average for this tour. If you do not have a car, it is a good thing. The park is lovely. The tour, however, does not take you anywhere you could not go on your own if you have a vehicle. And, while there may be some great tour guides, if you happen to get a... More

Throughly enjoyed this very informative 3 hour bus tour of Acadia National Park. I liked the fact that the bus driver knew some famous faces who live in Bar Harbor and could recount amusing stories. We stopped at Jordan Pond house where they serve their famous popovers. She even went to retrieve one since my husband didn't know what a... More

We took a bus tour through Acadoa National Park Tours that left downtown Bar Harbor and went out to the park. It went to all the locations that the ship excursion went to for half the price, $30. Our bus driver/guide was knowledgable interesting. Would love to go back to Bar Harbor someday and explore more.

The tour was fantastic. So much to see and do. Our guide was very knowledgeable and was very friendly. Well worth the money. My son who is 11 was not bored and that is saying a lot since it is hard to keep his attention for long periods of time.

This is not a review of the park tours, but a heads-up to those of you who are 62 or over that you can buy a lifetime access pass to all national parks for the grand sum of $10 at any of the park stations. Yes, lifetime. And, this is good for admission for you and up to 5 others... More

We went on the tour on a rainy, foggy day. Our guide, Heather was very friendly. She was super knowledgeable about Acadia Park. We had the chance to check out many waterfalls which were beautiful! The trip was about 3 hours and $30/ person. We were glad we took the tour. I would recommend going on a sunny clear day.

I'm not a huge national park fan. I know plenty of people that are trying to get to all of them in the country. That's not us. That said, visiting this park in the backdrop of Bar Harbor, Maine is something I'd do again in a second. What a phenomenal place.

Did the bus tour since it was raining but still wanted to see the park. The tour has 4 stops and you have time at each to grab some photos, walk around, use the restrooms and grab a snack (at one stop). Tour guide is very knowledgeable and friendly. She even gave recommendations for where to eat or get a... More

The tour lasted 1.5 hours and was really interesting. With limited time for a shore excursion this was the ideal thing to do
