Take a two-hour walking tour of Bar Harbor past many of the Victorian homes built by the wealthy during the Gilded Age. A guide dressed in a Victorian-era costume will lead you on a leisurely pace past many of the mansions that at one time populated the area, point out historically significant points of interest, and share stories of the grand parties and exorbitant lifestyles once enjoyed by Bar Harbor's rich and famous. You'll stop for an interior tour of St. Saviour's Church. Built in 1878, the church is the oldest, largest, and tallest public building on Mount Desert Island. The site of some of the most extravagant society weddings ever seen, and boasts ten original Tiffany stained glass windows. Your tour ends at the Village Green, a well-groomed park with a pretty gazebo. Return to port at your leisure.

Special Notes:

Guests should dress warmly and wear comfortable walking shoes. This walk covers a distance of about one mile and is conducted at a leisurely pace. The group stops often to hear commentary from the guide. Photography is welcomed along the entire route, including the interior of St. Saviour's Church.
