What people are saying about Bar Harbor

Charlie was our guide and he was informative and really added his own personality to the tour. I was glad we had Charlie. It was a great tour for the price. Charlie has lots of Moxie!!!

Randy was absolutely magnificent! His knowledge just blew us away. He is so cordial and so patient and made this tour one of the best tours we’ve ever been on.

Definitely worth while. A little pricey. Needs to add ME blueberry pie at the end instead of just ice cream Guide very good
