The only negative was that it was very foggy and couldn't see the views from cadillac mountain. Maybe the tour should have been delayed for a day or two for the fog to clear to see the views.
Rob was fantastic! So incredibly knowledgeable and experience. The ride was smooth and comfortable and we got to see a lot of the park in a short amount of time with minimal effort. Highly recommend.
Roger was a great guide. Park was beautiful!
Lack of parking space....
Excellent guide provided a great overview of the park and it's history.
Great tour guide.
Excellent information given
Because we had 3 stops and the bus driver chose one of those stops to be a garden we could have toured on our own as it was before the ntrancr to the mountains
Roger K. was a great tour guide and provided us with lots of facts, anecdotes, and humor throughout the tour.
I feel the trip was very interesting, I thought that we learned things about the area that we wouldn't have otherwise. I enjoyed seeing the big attractions without having to worry about parking. I also liked the drivers choice of the natural garden.
Our guide was very informative and personable. The only problem we had was a rude group that overstayed their allotted time at Cadilac Mountain by a full 15 minutes causing the rest of the group to wait on them.
Our tour guide, Santos, was extremely knowledgeable and very entertaining. The trip was well planned and allowed us to see so much of this beautiful area from the top of Cadillac Mountain to the shoreline and Thunder Hole. I'd recommend this tour to anyone visiting the area.
Excellent, knowledgeable tour guide.
The driver was excellent. She had great information about the park, it's founding, ecology and plant life.
Roger made the tour interesting and everyone was very friendly and nice. Happy we took the tour it made our visit to Acadia.
Roger was very informative and we enjoyed his humor. Had a great time. THANKS
We know you can't help the weather. We were just sorry not to be able to see much of anything because of all the mist!
Bus driver was very good at telling us the history and interesting things about the park. Very good tour.
YOUR BEST MARKETING PITCH IS THAT YOU DO THE DRIVING AND THE WIFE DOES NOT GET HYPER ABOUT TRAFFIC CONFLICTS IN AN AMAZINGLY DENSELY TOURIST POPULATED PARK. THE DRIVER WAS LOCAL AND ABLE TO ADD LOTS OF SMALL DETAILS. HIS SPEED ALLOWED MY WIFE TO TAKE PICTURES THAT SHE SAID WERE GOOD QUALITY OUT THE BUS WINDOWS. SHE FULLY ENJOYED THE SCENERY AND TRIP.
Our tour guide Mike was very knowledgeable and had a witty sense of humor. The tour was perfect for our family to get a lay of the land on our first day at the park. Well worth the time and money.
Our tur guy was very knowledgeable. Learned a lot then just touring the park on our own.
Heather was great and very knowledgeable. Loved her passion for the park.
Beautiful trip and very knowledge guide
Our guide was extremely informative and funny. It really was the highlight of our trip to Bar Harbor
Excellent tour guide! He made the tour special.
The tour was very good but windows of bus were not optimum when viewing Acadia while in motion and ride was sometimes too fast to take in the breadth of the park. However, the driver/guide was very knowledgeable and friendly and funny at times. The park itself was magnificent and we wish we had more time. Bar Harbor is a great place but parking is difficult and punitive if you're not back exactly on time.
The tour was great! We took the morning one so it was nice and cool. Could have used more time at the Cadillac Mountain stop.
Very pleased with our trip. Our tour touched om all major points as described in brochure. Our tour guide on the 11am tour was very informative. We will recommend this package to anyone going to Arcadia National Park.
The tour guide, Santos, was very knowledgeable and informed. He was polite, friendly, and funny. We saw everything we wanted to see.
Thoroughly enjoyed Roger and his knowledge and enthusiasm. He made the trip thru the park a delight!
Tour guide was well informed and shared abundant knowledge of park and area. Made the most of foggy day. Bus was comfortable. Price is reasonable given that we were not up for tackling the park on our own.
The stops weren't nearly long enough, 15 minutes is not enough time to see what we wanted.
Entertaining informative driver. Beautiful day, beautiful scenery
The tour is very close and walkable from the cruise port. The tour guide was enthusiastic.
I wanted to learn about and see the park. This tour was perfect.
