Our dinner was terrible and just riding through the part is not the way to experience its beauty. If we could do it again, and the weather cooperated, I think a carriage ride would be the excursion I would choose. Or, if it were easier to do, I would rent a car and do it on my own. But the rental cars are located at the airport and the logistics of getting to the rental agency, picking up a car, returning it to the agency and returning to the ship, just didn't seem feasible.
Beautiful forest with great views. You must sit on the left side of the bus, it is were all the good pictures will be. We were on the right, to late to switch, bus was packed. Tour guide very knowledgeable
We book this specific tour because it included Jordan Park house for tea and pop overs. We expected a quiet experience. There was a tour group next to us which were very inconsiderate, loud and noisy, especially the tour leader. I asked our guide to please speak the the other group guide, to lower their voices-
She did nothing- So we quickly drank our tea, grabbed our popovers and went outside. So Jordan Pond House was disappointing due to our tour guide not making any effort to speak to other guide.
After a walking tour of downtown that morning, we met up with our group to have a lobster bake, which actually took place at the Bar Harbor Club (fancier location than anticipated). The lunch was a lot of fun, as neither of us had tried a whole lobster before. Or mussels. We discovered that we're fans. From there, we drove through Acadia National Park, and saw the stunning sites, and history of the area. We were able to get out at a bridge, which was the best part of the drive. Wonderful views.
