“I wish I’d written this review a month ago, when we took the tour, because now I cannot remember the name of the man who was our guide. What I do remember is that he was a fantastic, engaging and knowledgeable guide who told us the history of the area, about the geology, about preservation efforts, about the wildlife, and he was able to answer every one of our questions. We took the late afternoon tour to Cadillac Mountain and it was spectacular, as the sun was starting to set. We were on a Royal Caribbean cruise and we chose to tour Acadia on our own using the park shuttles, but since the shuttles do not go to the top of Cadillac Mountain, we booked the Oli’s Trolley tour. My only negative comment is that we only had 15 minutes at the top of the mountain – hardly enough to absorb the beauty. But that’s all the buses and trolleys are permitted, so we can’t blame Oli’s Trolley for that. Highly recommend this tour.”
