OK, we have Halifax set now we need information on what to do in Bar Harbor. We want to go to Acadia National Park. The question is: should we rent a car and drive ourselves, or hire a cab (or tour). We would appreciate any advice from anyone who has been there. Thanks so much. We always get such good advice from this board. JD
We just got back from 7 days on the Enchantment. We did the Arcadia park tour and lobster bake(4hours). The lobster lunch was amazing! Fresh muscles to start, then lobster, the sweetest corn, red potatoes and fixens. The blueberry cake at the end was just so-so. Now the tour. This might have been a very nice afternoon if we hadn't gotten the worst tour guide we have ever seen. Couldn't put a full sentence together if her life depended on it. Kept switching subjects without notice and didn't give us any basic background info so that we could understand what she was talking about. We were so releaved when she stopped talking - it was that much work to listen! There were 3 buses so I don't know how the other guides were. I should have asked - sorry.
