We had never been to Acadia before, so we felt it was important to get an overview to begin with. This was a nice way to do that, and the tour bus driver gave us a lot of good information about the area. The only problem we had was that the bus itself did not make it easy to see... More

We enjoyed our tour of Acadia National Park. Three bus stops with restrooms and food and merchandise available. The guide, Heather, was informative with lots of historical information and local trivia. Cadillac Mountain is beautiful and we visited on a cool day (58 degrees). We could see for miles. Jordan Pond is nice and we will return to the restaurant.... More

If your time in Acadia and Bar Harbor is limited or if you just want an overview of the area before you "plunge in" for an extended visit, this is a must see tour. My husband and I were very pleased with the quality and length of the tour. Our tour guide, Mike, was professional, highly informative and had a... More

I used the National Park Tours for my tour of Acadia National Park. You pick up your tickets at a local restaurant very near the pier, even though our time was for 11:00, when we arrived they asked if we wanted the 10:30 time, so we took the earlier time. We were on an updated school bus, seats were nice,... More

We booked a tour with Acadia National Park Tours. Our driver/guide was very knowledgable and very personable. He took us through the village of Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. We had two stops in the park. One was at Thunder Hole and the other at Cadillac Mountain. The tour was a much less expensive than what the cruise line... More

We were in Hancock with two other couples and wanted to take a tour of Acadia National Park and decided to take the national park bus tour. We were certainly not disappointed. It wasn't the best day because of fog, but our tour guide, Mike Shapiro, was fantastic. He was very personable, very knowledgable, and had a great sense of... More

Not a bad tour, informative and the bus was comfortable, much better than the trolley. Only 3 or 4 interesting stops as there is not enough time to see everything. The guide Roger was excellent as most of them are. The next day we decided to do the the drive again on our own so we could spend more time... More

We took a 2 and half hour tour up to Cadillac Mountains, thunder hole and all bits and bobs in between. Our driver /guide was both informative and highly entertaining . What he didn't know about the area, the lobster industry and the Rockefellers wasn't worth knowing. Good affordable trip at $30 pp, almost half the price the cruise we... More

My wife and I took the 10 am tour with Roger (the bus driver/tour guide) back on August 24. (We booked it because of the good reviews I had read.) The morning of the 24th we arrived early and Roger suggested leaving something on a couple of seats (driver's side) to reserve our spot and then we could go off... More
