Loved the tour, history, behind-the-scenes stories about Bar Harbor and Acadia Nat'l Park. Our driver/guide was terrific. Unfortunately, this trip was "marred" by the business director holding up the start because he was waiting for 2 additional riders who were late or never showed up (we did not know the details). The bus was almost full, very hot (>80 degrees outside), and people were having difficulty keeping cool (the bus only stays cool by having air flowing in during the ride). The director finally gave the OK to leave - by then, we were late and the driver had to rush through much of her talk (not her fault).

My wife and I were on a cruise which took us to Bar Harbor. We had not planned to take any excursions but saw the two and a half hour tour of Bar Harbor and Acadia National Forest being advertised. We decided to take the tour and had a great time. Our guide, Mike, was excellent- very informative while being humorous and entertaining. We learned a lot about the park and about the rich and famous who have lived in Bar Harbor. We highly recommend this tour.

We took the 2.5 hour narrated trolley tour to Acadia National Park and Cadillac Mountain. We purchased our tickets on arrival at the pier upon tendering in from our cruise ship. Tickets were readily available in the gift shop at the pier. Tours were departing every 30 minutes on the morning that the ship was in port. The trolley starts and finishes right at the waterfront less than half a block from the main pier. Our 70 year old driver guide, Magic Mike, was very informative and quite a character. He even managed to keep the full bus of visitors adhering to time-lines at the few photo/rest stops where we got out for 10-15 minutes. He was an incredible source of history and humour as he took us to see the beautiful views around Acadia National Park. On return to Bar Harbor, at our request, he pointed out options for getting lobster and did not steer us wrong as we had a fantastic lobster lunch and wild blueberry pie at the West Street café just across from the trolley pickup and drop off. This is a very good option for touring Acadia Park if you don't have independent transport and want some local history and colour.

The tour of the city of Bar Harbor and the trip up to the top of Cadillac Mt. was the best shore excursion we had on our seven day New England cruise. The knowledge that was shared on the history of the city and the area was fantastic. This tour was not book via the cruise line. Just one block to your right when leaving the pier and the cost can't be beat. The manager, driver, and guide offered other tips of the city's highlights and local dinning spots that proved valuable. Highly recommend. DON"T MISS THE TIFFANY STAIN GLASS IN THE OLD CHURCH. Make a note when you motor past and walk back for an inside view.

Was initially thinking what's the point of a trolley ride round Bar Habor, the realised it takes in a good part of the island. An excellent two and a half hours of seeing things in context and discovering how wild a place this is. Staggering the wealth of some of the occupants. Highly recommended.
