Tours Around Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park

We provide custom narrated tours of Acadia National Park and the surrounding communities of Mount Desert Island. Our drivers are from the island have a thorough knowledge of the history and geology of this unique area. The most popular tours start in downtown Bar Harbor. We will take you through a historic corridor of turn-of-the century "cottages" telling stories of the guilded rich or "summer people" as we head along the coast to Acadia National Park. Once we get to the park we will drive along the 27-mile long Park Loop Road up to the summit of Cadillac Mountain, the highest peak on the eastern seaboard and the first place daylight begin hits each morning. From Cadillac you can see spectacular views of Bar Harbor, the surrounding islands and the visiting cruise ships.

Visit all of the famous sites, including Sand Beach, Thunder Hole, Otter Cliffs, Precipice Cliffs, Sieur de Monts Springs and gardens, and Jordan Pond House. We can stop and stay as long as you would like at each location. As you wind through the park you will see hand-cut stone bridges, rocky coves and pink granite coastline, glacier cut lakes and dense forests.

You may also choose to see the famous Asticou and Thuya Gardens and the only fijord on the east coast, Somes Sound. All of these area are not accessible to bus tours. You will also view the mansions of Bar Harbor, Seal Harbor and Northeast Harbor, including estates of the Rockefellors, Astors, Vanderbilts and Fords.

Some wish to go to the "quietside" of the island and see the fishing communities of Southwest Harbor and Bass Harbor. Here you may choose to eat an authentic lobster lunch at a working lobster pound as you watch the lobster boats come and go alongside yachts and kayaks. In beautiful Bass Harbor you will visit the only lighthouse on the island, Bass Harbor Headlight.

If you have a special place you would like to see let us know, we will be happy to take you there. Our drivers narrate the tours with history and facts about the area, spiced up with local tales you will not hear anywhere else.

Our min-vans fit six comfortably. Vans provide the best viewing with their big windows and higher viewing point. Park entrance fee of $5 per person is not included in the fare. The fare is $80 per hour per van. You can go as long or short as you would like once the tour begins. A typical tour takes 2-4 hours. For parties of six or more vans travel together in tandem.

Please let us know if we can show you our beautiful island. Advanced reservations are strongly encouraged as tours fill quickly.
