Had a fantastic experience that my son and I will have for a lifetime! The pilot, Steve, was personable, professional and just plain wonderful! He gave us an excellent tour of Mt Desert Island, while flying an open pit biplane, the waaaay coolest thing ever!!!! Remember to bring a tip for the pilot...it was well worth it!!!

My husband and I had been to Bar Harbor several times before, but this one was most enjoyable. The lighthouse tour in the biplane is a must for visitors to this area. Our pilot, Silas, was friendly, very knowledgable about the area, and very competent. Bar Harbor, Acadia and surroundings take on a whole new perspective from the air. Highly... More

Have watched the gliders go over my house for years and finally, thanks to a gift certificate from my husband, got to go up in one with my nephew! It was a beautifully clear day which made for a fabulous flight. The pilot was friendly and took the time to explain what each gauge in the cockpit was telling us,... More

What an adventure I had last Thursday gliding for the first time. The ride was so smooth and quiet. The pilot gave us an amazing flight around Bar Harbor. I would not hesitate to go gliding again with Acadia Air Tours. The staff are friendly and experienced.

Although my boyfriend had been planning our trip in the air for some time, I wasn't aware of it until the afternoon we went. From the second we walked in to the office (in downtown Bar Harbor) until we landed, each employee we spoke with was super nice. Steve, in the check-in office, was accommodating, funny and a pleasure to... More

This was something we'd never experienced and it was great. Despite being delayed from 9 until noon due to fog, we still had a fabulous experience. Our pilot was great, providing a running description of the areas we flew over. We took the longer flight and weren't able to see what they usually fly by, but regardless we were very... More

These guys are the best! What a way to cap off our anniversary weekend. The owners and pilots are cool, personable, professional and totally fun to hang with. Our pilot, Steve, gave us an excellent tour of Mt Desert Island, while flying the plane, which by the way, is about about the raddest thing you'll ever ride in. So much... More

The folks squeezed us in for our ride even though they were pretty booked up and we were thankful because we had already had other plans cancelled the day before because of the weather and were getting frustrated with our vacation. We took the 12-15 minute bi plane tour of the area. Our pilot was friendly and pointed out many... More

This was my first time ever in a biplane and first time visiting Bar Harbor. This was a great way to learn about the island. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and qualified and answered all of our questions. I would recommend this to anyone!
