We wanted an overall tour of the Park from the perspective of someone who lived in the area. We were not disappointed.
Arranging the tour was extremely easy. Because of tendering from the ship we were concerned about the 10:30 start time so we phoned and discussed it with the owner.
As it were, we made it to shore with an hour to spare.
Our driver was a wealth of information about the area, which he delivered with a dry sense of humor. Very receptive to questions.
Tour was much more reasonably priced than the excursions sold by the cruise line. It also included Cadillac Mountain, as it was a beautiful, clear day. The panorama from the top of the mountain was nothing short of spectacular.
Only downside, for which we could not fault the tour company, were the crowds. It was a three day Holiday weekend so nature lovers were out in full force. This tour has paid for parking spots in all our stops, so we were well taken care of.
All in all a beautiful day in a lovely setting.

Our tour guide, Santo was incredible. He was informative, he knew his stuff. He was very personable and he made the trip that more enjoyable.

We were in Bar Harbor for the day as a cruise stop. I'd booked the tour with Acadia National Park Tours a few weeks prior to the stop. We booked an afternoon tour. After we wandered around the town for a while and had lunch, we stopped by the restaurant to check in for our tour. We checked in an hour before an Andy suggested we could swap for the tour that was leaving about 30 minutes later as they had a few spots left. We appreciated his flexibility!

I'm so glad we traded tour times because we got to have Santos as a tour guide and he was excellent! He was very funny, knowledgeable and a natural story teller. the tour stopped in three spots and they were all beautiful. Of course I wish we had more time during the stops, but we understood the need to keep the tour moving.

I'd highly recommend this tour - it's abut three hours for a fraction of the cost of the tours through the cruise ship.

Thank you Santos and Andy for an excellent day!

This was a fabulous tour for the money. Well worth every penny. The tour is seamless from the point of checking to the end. Our driver Santos was very informative and knowledgeable on the area providing us with the great history as well. He was also very humorous as well we thoroughly enjoyed him. We were so impressed after the tour we hoped in the car and went back up Cadillac Mountain to spend more time and enjoy the wonderful fall colours! I would definitely go back again. Bar Harbour is fantastic and the people very friendly!
