this lighthouse area was a huge letdown. long traffic line, no parking outside of lot, and once you get to lighthouse there are too many ppl standing to get a photo.

What luck in finding Woody and his business. We enjoyed an amazing private tour of Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor. Woody shared so many stories and showed us so many sites we would not have heard or seen had we decided on a self guided tour. His love for the area is obvious in his knowledge and enthusiasm of Acadia and the Bar Harbor area. Highly recommended! Jim and Ginger, Springfield, MO

There is a SMALL parking lot but they do have his and hers outhouse. The path from the parking lot to the lighthouse is paved and steep. This view is not paved and you are on your own getting over the rocks to see the light house from the shore line

We arrived into town on one of the last Silversea cruises of the season to find that the locals had pretty much packed up shop and our plans to hike around Acadia National Park for a few hours would be stymied. However the Chamber of Commerce host at the information centre was great and rang around to find out of someone could help us. We were fortunate Woody was free and he arrived to pick us up about 5 minutes later. We thought we were just getting a taxi ride into the park, but Woody set up a plan with us so we could make the most of our few hours. He took us first to the Park visitor centre to make sure we sorted out with rangers the best places to go, had maps and paid our fees. Then it was off to the bubbles for a long hike around them. Woody arranged to come back to collect is after we had finished our walk about 2 hours late. We called and he was there about 15 minutes later. He then dropped us at the next location and set us up to walk through the lower areas and all the way back to town. He would come and pick us up if anything went wrong. It didn't and we made our way back into town after having a marvelous time. Throighout our journeys in the taxi Woody gave us a full commentary and lots of local information. We couldn't have asked for a better driver and guide. He was superb. Many thanks to you Woody - really appreciate it. Kevin and Sandra from New Zealand

We were on a cruise and took this tour in Bar Harbor. With three couples it was very cost effective. Woodie was our tour guide and he was great. Very informative about the island, it’s history and it’s culture. He drove us out to the lighthouse and was very willing to go on the trail with us and take pictures. He took us into Acadia National Park and explained the history of the park. I highly recommend Woodie and his tour.

We were a party of 4 coming into Bar Harbor on 9/25/19 from the Norweign Escape. Ellen was our tour guide and was so accomodating even picking us up a little earlier. She was very knowledgeable, excellent driver and we all had a lot of fun with her.
She stopped at all the good places in Acadia and even other places that we didn't know we were going too. Overall I can't say enough about Coastal Tours. Woody was very quick to respond to my e-mails and even though we couldn't get him for our tour guide we loved having Ellen. Had a great lunch in Bar Harbor at her suggestion. Great Lobster Rolls. Thank you Ellen.

From our very first contact via phone months before our cruise, we knew Woody was the right choice for our tour in Bar Harbor. He picked us up promptly and the fun began. His enthusiasm is matched only by his professionalism. We learned tons about Bar Harbor, its famous residents and sites, Acadia National Park, and Cadillac Mountain in the time we spent with Woody. He was especially considerate of our 93-year-old, getting her wheelchair out numerous times to be sure she didn't miss a thing. Woody was knowledgeable and fun and he made our day in Bar Harbor a day we won't forget. Thanks bunches, Woody! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

Some people might say that Mt. Desert Island is “just an Island, water all around it”, but we now know better. The 6 of us booked a 4 hour tour, and Woody TOTALLY surpassed all our expectations. As someone who has visited a number of times, I learned a whole lot from him. We weren’t very happy with the options the cruise ship offered, but were very happy with Woody. Please take my advice and book with them. You won’t be disappointed.
He was a font of information on not only the local history, but on park history, and everything from the carriage roads to the geologic formation of the park.
He also worked everything in, in just the right amount of time, without rushing or stressing.
All this and he even really knows how to frame a picture. And he taught me a new favorite “Maine’ism”. “Hard sain, not knowin”.
Thank you Woody for a great time.

Woody was an awesome tour guide! We did the Cadillac loop tour and it was great.
We saw Acadia's highlights and Woody provided a lot of interesting history. Would definitely recommend this company for Acadia tour. Much better than being on a bus full of people!
