Catherine was engaging and knowledgeable with a lot of fun facts about Bar Harbor. Highly recommend this walking tour.


Our tour guide was Catherine! She was lovely and very personable! I love history so the tidbits of information about Bar Harbor’s history was great, but was interesting to even the non-history lover as we were constantly seeing current day areas. It was an amazing intro to the town!


To know something as you walk by and see it - is so much better than to wonder! There should be a walking tour in every little town and city to do it justice!
