Not usually a fan of bus tours but this one was an exception. Our driver and guide, Roger was on his 7000th tour and still energetic, interesting, funny, friendly, very knowledgeable- maybe the best guide ever..P.S sit on the side behind the driver!!

You can buy tickets at Testa's Restaurant on Main St. in Bar Harbor. Our tour left at I think 11. There are other tours after that as well. I'm sorry I didn't see this question sooner. I hope I'm not too late.
