We did the Acadia National Park Loop Road tour, BY40A. After a long tender into this port, we waited quite a while to get loaded onto buses. As it turned out, one of the operator’s buses had broken down and other competing tour companies were pressed into service to transport us. Fortunately, for my spouse and I and one other couple, we were loaded into a large SUV with a driver (Melissa) so we ended up with a personal tour of the Park. We were treated to a fascinating history of the area, the land of rich and famous (think Dick Wolf from “Law and Order” fame, Martha Stewart, and other icons of American industry. We had three stops along the way for photo opportunities, although the weather had become almost overcast and foggy by the time we reached the summit of the Park. Interestingly, by the time we arrived back at Bar Harbor, it was sunny. We spent the rest of the time shopping and sightseeing before returning to the ship. Highly recommended.
