Reviews

“Have been visiting Bar Harbor/Acadia National Park for over 30 years but had never taken a narrated tour. Learned new and interesting things. Ron, our driver, told good “Maine” stories in between the history, etc. Very entertaining. Would recommend this!”

“We arrived for a short stay in Bar Harbor and were exhausted and didn’t know where to go or what to do. We saw the trolley and decided to try it. We are so happy we did! We not only saw the area and got a lot of information, but also relaxed and took in the sights. Our tour guide was friendly and funny and I wish we had the time to do more of the tours. Two thumbs up!”
