“Bus trip”
Reviewed November 21, 2012

It would have been better to take the car, as the bus did not give anything like enough time to enjoy the views.

“Great Ride”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

This tour through Acadia National Park was very well worth the money spent. The bus driver kept us on the winding road. He not only informed us of all the pertinent facts surrounding the area and its people, but also the 'happenings' in the last 100 years. (i.e. the "Rich and Famous").

“Great way to get around!”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

The bus is a fun way to travel around Acadia National park. The drivers will often give descriptions of the area as you are driving around. Its definitely less stressful than trying to find parking during the busy season and the busses even go as far out as many of the campgrounds. You can take your bike too!

“Great service--free”

Run frequently--and free. Cannot ask for more--drivers are helpful and friendly too. One of the best values in the town.
