Aside from the fact that the bus is not a luxury tour bus, but instead, a basic, comfortable vehicle with large windows for enjoying the vista, this tour provided us with everything the other passengers on our ship had seen for half the price. The guide was excellent, providing top notch narration. For cruise passengers, the walk from the pier... More

This is the beat way to see Acadia Nat'l Park, it is beautiful and scenic, breath taking. There were stops at Thunder Hole and Cadillac Mtn. Tour guide was great; he was knowledgable and personable and enjoyed what he was doing. Highly recommend this tour. Would suggest making reservations prior to trip.

I guess I could have driven up Cadillac Mountain by myself in the car, but I never would have enjoyed myself so much. The driver was excellent and full of charm and information. SO GLAD I did it.

We were on a cruise ship and wanted a quick trip to see Acadia National Park, and this seemed to fit the bill. We got the bus in town, and the guide had a few quips that led me to think that he was trying to portray a crusty old Mainer, which it seems he was. However, he took it... More

What a great way to taste test this National Park. With 2.5 hours of tour for a mere $30, the guide left me wanting more. Great factual info, stories and stellar views. Two stops as others have stated. 25 minutes at each stop was too short in my opinion but better than nothing. The views from the bus are great,... More

We really enjoyed this tour...lots of info and a great guide plus 2 stops, one 25 minute stop at Cadillac Mtn & one 25 minute stop at Thunder Hole. The bus was VERY comfortable...better than the trolley tours.

Bar Harbor was one of our ports on our cruise. This was great way to experience Acadia National Park. Not a lot of time, but enough to know we need to come back and spend a week. Our driver was great. Very informative. Our only wish was that we had longer. The park was beautiful. Views amazing.
