Acadia National Park Tour
Maine is well known for its fall foliage. But you might be surprised to learn that this foliage is relatively new! These forests used to be entirely dominated by coniferous evergreen trees, like spruce and fir. They’re now populated by young deciduous trees. What happened? Know more about it in our Acadia National Park Tour.
Explore Acadia National Park fall foliage and stunning vistas with a self-guided audio tour! Nestled away in the remote, unspoiled nature of Bar Harbor, Maine, Acadia is best known for its vibrant fall colors, which span the color spectrum from radiant yellows to deep reds.

How to reach?

Why Tour With Us
Stop 1 : Welcome
Stop 22 : Spindle Granite
Great tour! Acadia is beautiful in the summer too! We just finished up a visit there and had a great time using this app.
We enjoyed this app very much! GPS always stay connected even without internet connection. It tells about each point od interest and gives enough time to decide if you want to stop or not. The narration is both informative and entertaining and helps you to make the most of whatever time you have and decide what to see.
Great self drive tour!
We read previous reviews and decided to buy it . Saved us $70. We went at our pace and spent most of the day around the park. We liked that it automatically started as we approached a point of interest. Make sure you download the tour before the actual visit. With the Covid19 we thought this is a great alternative rather than travelling with a group of people. We wish that the tour offered more tales of the park while still in between the highlights and worked well on Bluetooth. We did had some connections issues but that got resolved automatically. Recommended
Very powerful application
This is a MUST app if you are visiting a park. Just make sure you download maps before departure. Also make sure you have a charger as continuous tracking saps the battery. My boys learned way more than listening to their dad and even gave the narrator a name. Will use again and see what other options they have
Great! Worked perfectly in airplane mode
I needed to reserve battery life and I didn’t have internet connection, so I was a little skeptical about this app guide, but it worked perfectly. Just remember to download everything in the morning when you still have internet.
Loved the history – very surprised to learn about the Rockefeller’s here!
The top one
Everyone should download this app!!
We already had a basic itenerary, but the guide added more worthwhile stops along our drives, including some that we would’ve passed without realizing. No ads, no glitches, no worries about cell reception because it worked off satellite.
Hands down this app made our trip. We saw many easy to access points of interest that we would have missed otherwise. It works perfectly and is such a help both navigating the parks and providing interesting commentary along the way. The only negative, unless we missed it, is knowing the narrator’s name!5 stars!!
Good info, drive slow We had some stories get cut off by the next story but realized we were driving too fast. (It can be tough with cars tailgating you!) But just pull to the side and then continue as usual and you will get the full benefit of this tour.
For a lazy person
Easy one way road. I was alone. My hu**and had some work. Decided to go for a drive. This app helped a lot to just follow it. It was easy 3 hours. Lovely drive. I had to stop at a few places to listen to the stories. Overall, good one.
We loved this app. Definitely download before you go and you’ll have no problems. Way cheaper and safer during Covid times than taking a group tour. Very informative.
Easy to use and I enjoyed the narration. Good info and entertaining. Would recommend
Superb tour through park
The stories are a wonderful addition to the beautiful sights of the park. Worked like a breeze!
Stunning colors in Acadia right now! Thrilled to find this tour so we could explore at our own pace. Loved all of the historical insight and especially the extra Learn More audios
Great tour! Acadia is beautiful in the summer too! We just finished up a visit there and had a great time using this app.
Good Driving App
Loved using this driving app in Acadia. We only had a day there and we saw and learned so much. The app was easy to use. I highly recommend it.
Worth the money
I found the audio tour easy to follow, informative, and entertaining. The actual drive loop through the park itself was confusing and not terribly well marked; if you miss a turn or head the wrong direction, you can end up stopped at a one-way road and have to turn around and backtrack.
We followed the directions and set up the app before reaching Acadia and it worked smoothly with the cellular data off.
Make sure to have a park pass to access the National Park and a time pass to drive up Cadillac Mountain. We did not know and will have to return to complete the tour.
The information is interesting and made driving through the park pleasant. The GPS map was helpful in identifying where we were and where the points of interest were.
We will likely do the tour again in better weather as it was a foggy day the first time we went up.
Super Fun and Easy!
Did this yesterday, followed all instructions and it worked great! It did take a bit to get the passcode and it was texted to me instead of in the conformation email like I thought I read. No big deal at all though! I was able to download it the night before we went so no issues! Having the audio guide made the tour much more informative and interesting! It was also quite easy to skip around since we did the park loop twice and only wanted to hear a few of the audio selections twice. I plan to search of other tours provided by this company!!
Very helpful for drive around
App worked great. Set up was easy. When driving it played as we were approaching the sites. Really appreciated the information. Made the whole visit better.
Easy as can be
Not sure why people have trouble with this self-guided driving tour. As long as you download it ahead of time before you arrive in the region, it functions exactly as it should. The first instruction is to turn off cellular data and it relies on GPS to trigger the talk at each location. It was very informative!
Flawless in reservation but also acceptance at the gates. I will be using this agent again. please note, I had questions that needed the direct help of the representative. both agents were resourceful, polite, courteous.I did not wait long for the agents to answer .
This virtual self-guided driving tour was AWESOME!! It kept up with me while driving & worked offline so I didn’t have to worry about cell service (which is awful in the park) or worrying with my phone while driving solo. The narrator had such a great voice & there was so much awesome information offered. I learned a lot and saw so many beautiful sites! I could go at my own pace which made this stress-free. Brilliant App / idea. This was an amazing find & was PERFECT for an Introvert that didn’t want to deal with a tour guide / large groups. Download this ASAP!
Neat tour of the Park Loop
Perfect way to enjoy the park, learn about the history from the comfort of your own car and at your own pace! Loved it!
Park Loop by car
Nice commentary of the park loop especially since there is little info in the park itself about the history and wildlife. So glad we purchased this audio tour. Be sure to download on your phone before entering the park or else it won’t work in some areas.
This was great, really had fun with it. The stories were interesting and the narrator was engaging. Good way to stay distant from others and enjoy a good tour of some beautiful sights.
Acadia Loop Trail Drive
Very helpful. Enjoyed. First time visit. Gave us an overview of spot we wanted to explore in our limited time frame.
Definitely worth it
Great value that added a lot of information to our trip. I liked that it is GPS based and would automatically begin the audio when near the point of interest. I cant think of a more economical way to add an interesting dimension to your trip. I will be looking for other tours from this company when visiting other places.
It was nice to be able to drive ourselves but still get all the facts that we needed about the park.
Great self drive tour – 10 pts!!!
Wonderful self drive tour. I read the previous review and decided to do it, it saved us $70. What we loved the most, we went at our pace and spent most of the day doing the park. I liked it automatically started as we approached a point of interest. It included history which is great and not sure if you’d get the information on another tour.
Be sure to download on a strong WiFi !!!
After that we had no problems with the tour!
Remember you must get a pass for the park or display your membership card.
Thank you for this self your, we will look into others.
I went in with low expeditions of the audio tour because of the reviews but decided since it’s $8 and it’s coronaseason, it’s a much better deal than a guided tour with a bunch of other people. My wife and I did the audio tour our first day at the park and it really helped get us acquainted with the park. Definitely download the app before leaving your hotel. Even with it downloaded we ran into a couple of connection issues but with patiences, they resolved themselves. And this normally happened when we would turn the app off to go explore a certain area we drove by. No big deal to me. There are a couple of spots where the audios for different things are close together and we accidentally cut off the audio we were listening to with the next one. We went back after we started driving and listened to the rest but be aware that could happen. We turned it into an all day adventure. Through in a hike at some spots we stopped at and you go right by the Jordan pond house which I heard has great food. We didn’t stop in, but always an option if you’re driving the park loop.
Tour was great, loved the bits of history, pull off areas for photos were great. Thunder Hole, Sand Beach, Otter Cove & Cadillac Mtn. were all awesome
Cadillac mountain. Thunder hole. GORGEOUS views. Soaked in nature. An experience to really connect to nature.
Best way to discover Acadia with the tour guide in your own car!
It is AWESOME!! Allowed us to discover many places in Acadia that we had missed in previous visits to this awesome National Park. We also learned a lot about the Park and the history of each key point. We loved it.
Well worth the 7$. My…
Well worth the 7$. My partner and I really enjoyed hearing the history as we drove through the park!
Interesting facts done at our pace!
jackie_m , Aug 2021 My mom recently had heart surgery. Exploring on foot was out of the question. The audio tour was EXCELLENT!! It had really interesting facts and we could do it at our pace. I would highly recommended it.
Great self-guided tour of Acadia
This tour was great – you go at your own pace, and the app knows exactly where you are. The information was interesting and it kept us moving.
Wonderful and inexpensive
This was a great app for driving through the main portion of Acadia National Park. I downloaded it on our way to the park and it was up and running by the time we wanted to use it. It offered interesting and fun facts about the area and its indigenous people. It uses the GPS on your phone so it knows where you are in the tour.
This was fantastic! I highly recommend it. we did our tour of the park September 7, 2021. I downloaded everything from home and the app ran perfectly, had a lot of great Information and fun facts as well as pointing out key things along the way! It picks up automatically based on your location.
