When I came to Bar Harbor with my wife, we saw the Acadia Air Tours sign and it was immediately clear to me that I wanted to do a flight with the bi-plane. When we came to the airport the next morning, I was told that the Waco would not be ready before later in the evening. I decided to... More

My family bought me a flight for my 60th birthday. Steve was our pilot and he was great. He explained everything we were seeing from the air and we had a fantastic trip. My face hurt when we landed because I never stopped smiling for the entire flight!!!

Our favorite part of our New England vacation! We did the bi-plane tour, and loved it! We were supposed to have our flight in the morning, but we woke up to fog and cloudy skies w/ no visibility. Acadia Air Tours was more than accommodating and let us move the flight to later in the day. They even thanked US... More

From the very start... calling to make the reservation... the service could not have been better. Friendly, helpful, enthusiastic , courteous are just a few words I would use to describe the experience.... and I haven't even gotten to the good part yet!! Arriving, the owner Steve was in the office to greet me and right away it was obvious... More

I booked a flight with Acadia Air Tours near the very end of their season. The first flight I booked had to be shelved until the next day, weather willing. The weather didn't cooperate with the next day's glider flight I had hoped to take either, but the guys at Acadia Air Tours didn't try to push a questionably safe... More

I normally don't write reviews but the Acadia Air Tours Crew warranted it. My wife and I chartered the biplane and had one of the best times of our lives. The owner was engaging and took the time to discuss the tour, aircraft, and answer any questions we had. Our pilot was outstanding! He gave a great tour and made... More

This is the best way possible to see the amazing scenes of Acadia National Park! Took a flight this morning with the kids - we all had a great time.

My friend and I went on a one hour glider ride last week. Fantastic pilots, both tow plane, and our glider pilot, Jeff. Steve, the owner, is obviously experienced at running this operation. I was a bit nervous, but their confidence quickly won me over. We were towed to 7000 feet and then Jeff guided us through the thermals and... More

Steve Collins , the owner, was great about helping my sister and I decide between the glider excursion and the biplane tour. he answered all of our questions and explained the differences thoroughly. We chose the biplane...40 min tour. I would recommend this time frame....right amount of time. Cool experience....words/reviews cannot describe the experience. You have to do it! Acadia... More
