Well worth $30. Our guide was great (my bad, I cannot remember her name, but she has an engineering degree and has blonde hair and loves to crack jokes!). She was very knowledgeable and entertaining. Took us all along the Park Loop and we made a few stops, including Cadillac Mountain with a view of the Porcupine Islands. And you... More

Our final stop was Cadillac Mtn......the views were magnificent. The tour was like 3 hours but flew by because it was so... More

on Wednesday, 8/3/2016 we visited Bar Harbor taking the Acadia National Park Tour Bus. We had Roger as our driver and the tour could not have been any better. His knowledge and explanation of the Park's history was clear and easy to understand. The personal touch that he added about his own grandfather working on the construction of the bridges... More

Wonderful 3 hour bus tour! Roger was full of humor, great stories and informative facts. He filled our minds with a true appreciation of Acadia National Park! There were 3 stops where we got off the bus - so peaceful and beautiful. Highly recommend!

The park is fabulous. Our guide was terrific and the tour covered much more than I thought possible for a 3 hour ride.

Purchase the $25 weekly pass, you'll use it several days. We did sunrise (0400) sunset another day, we went to Jordan beach which is a sandy quiet beach. Cadillac mountain, sand beach very busy with lots of tourists , thunder hole make sure you go two hours before high tide in order to catch the thundering wave! So check tide... More

We took this tour of the park since my husband and I have trouble walking. It gave a great overview of the park. Our tour guide, Roger, was excellent. He was so knowlegeable and funny, He had tons of stories to share since he has been doing this for 43 years. The downside was the bus. The seats are narrow... More

We took the tour bus out of Bar Harbor and our tour guide never missed a beat. Heather was amazing. She had great stories and kept us entertained while also being very informed on the town, the park, and preservation efforts. It was a real joy.

Roger provided a great deal of information about Maine, Bar Harbor, and Acadia. However, much of the info required a joke to proceed which got tiresome after a while. I would have preferred less attempts at being a comedian and giving example of Maine-speak and more fun facts, historical tidbits, and professional wisdom of the park. Unfortunately, our bus tour...
