  1. You want to include a tour of St George's which is a UNESCO World Heritage Center. Since you're visiting Bermuda on the Escape, you'll be able to use the free NCL ferry to SG and return. If you were to take the first ferry over to SG and how long you toured there, you could fit the visit to the caves on the same day. SG is at the eastern end of Bermuda and caves are close by, not walking distance. You'll be saving travel time if you do them on the same day. You could take the public bus to the caves from SG. Depending on when you complete the tour of the caves, you could return to SG for the ferry. Otherwise, you would take the bus to Hamilton where you could catch the Hamilton > Dockyard ferry. SBtS
  2. There was a recent thread titled - Walk to Acadia National Park From Tender drop off Here's what I posted in reply: I think it is a little more than a mile (from the tender dock). But the real question would be what can I do by entering the park that way. There is nothing within walking distance from where you entered the park with the exception of hiking to the top of Cadillac Mountain on the North Ridge Trail, but I'm not too sure where the trail head would be vs where you entered the park. In season and if you are on the Park Loop Rd, you could flag down the Island Explorer bus..... I would say my reply answers your question. The only other options would be hiring a taxi or an independent tour. However, take a look at Toms Port Guide for Bar Harbor which has information on the Bar Harbor Great Meadow Loop Trail (page 12). It may be what you are looking for. SBtS
  3. Oli's Trolley will unload about a 5 minute walk from the tender dock. Oli's has been doing this for years, and if Oli's says that the tour will be back at 4pm, you can count on it. If there is a line waiting for the tender and if the line is more paxs then the tender holds, a second tender will be provided for the overage. No paxs will be left standing on the tender dock. SBtS
  4. That's the problem with the tours, 15 minutes per stop does not give you enough time to do your own exploring. You can get a 4 hour.tour by Oli's that provides 30 minute per stop, better than 15 minutes but it still may not be what you want. Not sure when your cruise is, but in season, there is a free public bus service (Island Explorer) which has routes that include ANP. It is HOHO with designated stops, and it runs frequently. The down side is that there is no tour guide providing commentary and you have to work the schedules for what you want to see. SBtS
  5. Yes, do a tour. That is the only way to see ANP. I would suggest using an independent tour company, such as Oli's Trolley or Acadia National Park Tours. You could hike or rent bikes but you would be limited at what you would see. SBtS
  6. I agree with you about HAL, but unfortunately, HAL is no longer doing Bermuda. SBtS
