Took the First tour of the day so crowds and parking to catch the bus were not too bad. The crowds at the stops were also not too congested. Good to take the tour to get oriented and then revisit favorite stops on your own

Taking the shuttle was great. The driver/guide was excellent, friendly and informative. I gave only an average rating because it was very rainy and foggy. The passengers were given a squichy to wipe the condensation from the windows in order to see the sites

Beautiful park! Ron was very informative and friendly! Our group of 9 girlfriends felt that we received a very good overview of Acadia and Bar Harbor in the 2 1/2 hours. Ron also recommended a few places to eat. We went to the West Street cafe and it was very good. Great lobster, lobster bisque and appetizers.

On a whim, we (wife and I) signed up for this tour the night before we took it, not realizing it was the last tour of the season and boy were we glad we did! We learned so much and saw so many beautiful sights during the 2.5 hours...definitely worth it. Our tour guide Santo was great; funny, smart and full of knowledge about the history and local folklore...I highly recommend the tour...and Santo!
