We booked a tour with this company to get a well-rounded idea of all Acadia National Park had to offer. Our guide, Roger, was informative and witty, a third generation Bar Harbor native. The stories of his grandfather building the bridges in the park added a special touch, and as he recounted his job history, it gave me a sense... More

As a first timer to Acadia with my family and girlfriend, we took this tour to get the lay of the land. Our guide was Roger and he was amazing at his job. He is a native of Bar Harbor and was very knowledgeable about both the history of Acadia and the science of the natural landscape. He was able... More

We enjoy the tour and several stops and felt confident afterwords that we had a good lay of the Park to go out on outer own. The addition history behind the Park was very helpful and interesting. The driver was quite entertaining as well and obviously cares very much about his home and sharing it with others. We thought that... More

This is a great way to see the highlights of Acadia escorted with info & history provided. Then you can go back on your own and spend more time where you were most interested. We had a great tour, but wish we had sat on the drivers side. Our tour driver was about 2 notches too loud - i had... More

This is the best way to start you visit in Bar Harbor. You can buy your tickets online at http://www.acadiatours.com or reserve your seat at Testa's Restaurant (53 Main St, Bar Harbor, Me). The tour is about 2.5 - 3 hours long. Your bus driver is also your tour guide. They explain as you drive through the town and Acadia... More

Had a great time on a guided kayak outing for almost 3 hours around the coastline. Did not see any marine life other than star fish and some birds but was fun being out on the water. The guide was great and a very friendly chap. Gave very good instructions to get us started. You dont need any previous experience... More

This was awesome! Our bus driver/tour guide was a native of the island. He wad friendly & knowledgable & obviously loved what he was doing. I recommend doing this before you explore on your own. You have the benefit of seeing a lot of the park in one 3 hour trip & can then go back on your own to... More
