I would recommend this tour, we saw so much. Just wish we had gone to Cadillac Summit in the afternoon, we arrived too early and the morning fog was still covering the mountain, so we couldn't see anything, but John stopped the bus halfway down the mountain so we could see the beautiful fall foliage. Mystic Seaport was a great stop and Bar Harbor was a beautiful, picturesque town. The 2 hour nature cruise was very relaxing and informative. John was a great host and we had an amazing bus driver. This is my 4th tour with take tours and I will continue to use them. I have never been disappointed on any of their tours
It's hard to write a review of my impressions of this tour. It was our second trip with TakeTours, after last year's Niagara Falls trip. The first tour was well organized, and our guide was fantastic, so we had high expectations about this second tour. Acadia National Park is "must-see", and the Nature Cruise or the Cadillac Mountain was fabulous, I recommend everyone to visit all these places
Great trip. No complaints. Our tour guide Ning was gracious. He made everyone comfortable during the trip. Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park were phenomenal. Lobster rolls at Geddys, blueberries icecream, blueberries soda a must in Bar Harbor. Memories to last a lifetime indeed.
This is a great tour for outdoor lovers. Bar Harbor and Acadia are beautiful, and the Portland lighthouse seems surreally magnificent. Our guide Mick was very lenient, flexible and helpful. The whale-watching cruise is worth taking just for the ride, even though you're not always guaranteed to see any whales. The motel was a great surprise, fabulous location within minutes from the downtown harbor, instead of your usual highway inn. Also, the stop-over at the New Hampshire Duty-Free liquor store was a very nice surprise. I would think twice about including the York Zoo and the Aquarium on the trip, I guess they make sense because families are a big part of this tour, however, I personally would have enjoyed more time in Portland or Bar Habor instead of the rushed visits to these two places.
The tour was overall good. The tour guide knew all the places well and was considerate of families with small children. He always made sure that everyone was comfortable with the decisions that he made regarding food stops and other things. Other than that the hotel was pretty good and the ride back and forth was not bad.
This trip was our second trip with Take Tours.
The first was to Niagara Falls and the second to Maine.
For the price you pay, the coach was very comfortable, the seats had adjustable footrests and it was very clean. The pickup point was a bit hectic on our Monday departure in China town but we eventually took off. The first day's York Kingdom had changed with the third days' Mystic Aquarium but we didn't mind because the weather on the three-day trip was so fantastic.
The highlight and the best part of the trip have to be the whale watching cruise in Bar Harbor. It was after we had the lobster lunch- I recommend a lobster or crab roll as it's much easier to eat and they are actually very filling! The blueberry soda is a must with your meals, so nice!!
We had some free time pre & post the cruise and we liked the flexibility to choose the restaurant for dinner so we could enjoy nature in peace with a beautiful view.
Acadia Park (Cadillac mountain peak) was also worth the trip. The hotel we stayed at included breakfast, which was rather nice and we stayed in the same hotel for 2nights so that was quite convenient, too since we didn't have to unpack, pack twice.
This was a good co-ordinated tour and the locations and weather were also good. The guide, John, was helpful and enthusiastic about the job. This was our 5th tour with taketours.com and I have enjoyed each one of those. The accommodation for this tour was a Super 8 motel and Quality Inn, which was a slight let down from the earlier better quality hotels I have stayed in with taketours, but its ok. The bus used was old Mercedes Benz and window of our assigned seat (back row) didn't have clear view to enjoy scenic route during 6-7 hour drive. Fortunately the tour guide could let us swap seats for empty available seats. Overall, we enjoyed the trip.
IT was very well organised trip and I strongly recommend. We could spend whole day in Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park on the second day.
Really appreciate our travel guide John for his service and professionalism. Thank you
This was a good co-ordinated tour and the locations were also good. The guide Mark Liu was helpful and enthusiastic about the job. This was my 3rd tour with taketours.com and I have enjoyed each one of those. The accommodation for this was a Super 8 motel and was a slight let down from the earlier better quality hotels have stayed in with taketours but its ok.
I highly recommend this tour. The driver Will and tour guide Maggie were both fantastic and got us to all our destinations safely. Due to time constraints, we didn't get to spend the free time to explore Bar Harbor, which was a bit of a bummer. My only notes for improvement are that the optional excursions be actually optional. My family and I were not interested in visiting the YORK Animal Kingdom and Amusement Park, but our only other option would have been to wait for everyone in a parking lot. All in all, this was a fantastic way to visit New England and not have to drive me.
I liked the attractions offered on this tour and would have preferred to spend more time at Acadia National Park. The weather was gorgeous and we got lucky to spot two whales during the whale watching cruise.
This was an excellent tour. Our tour guide Harrison and our driver were great. We not only lucked out with great weather in Portland, Maine as well as on top of Cadillac Mountain, but our guide scored us rooms at a Marriott hotel including free hot breakfast for two days. We luxuriated in a King Bed Suite. Amazing! The tour was well organized, the locations were great and the whole experience was very pleasant. Highly recommended.
The tour was a great value, and the accommodations were good; I would've given it 4 stars, but for the botched drop-off. Although there are some small problems, they are generally good and will be recommended
Tour was good. Foggy weather screwed up the view down the Cadillac mountain so I should have checked the weather on travel days prior to booking. Overall though, I still think the tour was excellent and the tour guide (Fiona) and driver (George) were very friendly and provided excellent service.
Lovely tour overall. After staying amidst the tall rises of NYC, nature seems to be even more pleasing. Check with your tour guide for the days of visit to select ur gear appropriately. Mystic Aquarium was our favorite of all. Do cover the sea lion show, beluga whale in the aquarium. It's beautiful. If you're opting for the whale watching cruise, don't have high expectations. It's worth a 3hr experience, even if u don't get to see those mammals. Dress up in layers. Carry your woolen caps, jackets, and gloves; or else you'll freeze and not be able to enjoy. Stand on the deck preferably. You might feel seasickness or pukish, be prepared. The travels are long, better to have groups to enjoy. Stay is good. All is good except yorks wild kingdom. It's more of kids affair. You can enjoy nature to the fullest with the national park, lighthouse, beach n all offered in this package. Feel free to ask your tour guide to switch on the video on the bus. It helps a lot in killing time in those long travel hours. All in all, you will have a great time :)
This is a very relaxed, wonderful tour of the North East State. Visited Mystic Aquarium, CT; Liquor Store, NH; Cadillac Mountain, Bar Harbor, Sand Beach, Thunder Hole, and finally the lighthouse at Portland. Kudos to the guide (Angie)for her management of the tour and also to the driver (John) for his really good driving. The stay was at Best Western, Augusta which was excellent. Overall a really good tour, far from the hustle and bustle of NY !!!
Very nice tour. Its a long route, so self-driving will be tiresome. Tour bus helped us to enjoy the trip, while we were relaxing with movies and snacks:) Guide Ms.Angie was very pleasant. Stay was excellent too. Wonderful sightseeing, whale watching was remarkable, totally a well-planned tour...I am glad that we chose 'take tours'. Thanks.
