Exceptional tour!
Giovanna_E, Sep 2023
Having never been to MV, we wanted to see as much as we could in one day. Bart was exceptional as he grew up on the MV. Very good tour. We recommend taking it, and if you're lucky, Bart will be your guide.
Charles_M, Sep 2023
Enjoyed it all. Good. Can’t think of 100 characters besides that. Maybe need a larger van. Okay. How’s that.
Terrific island tour with lots of local history
Sandra_D, Sep 2023
we were shown all around the island and given the history of each area.Sam, our guide, was very knowledgeable as he has been a resident of the island for a long tiime. He was friendly and went the extra mile to accomadate special requests by riders.
Just okay for us
Kanika_M, Sep 2023
The Cliffs were beautiful. Wish we had more time there and actually stopped in Edgartown instead of drovong through. The driver was very nice but very dry (even his jokes fell flat) and many people drifted off to sleep during the tour. I wouldn't do the tour again. But it served the purchase of being able to see various parts of the island within a day trip without having a vehicle.
A day in the life of Martha...
Heather_J, Sep 2023
We were happy that we chose this 3 hour bus guided tour of Martha's Vineyard. The island is quite large so we would not have gotten to see it all and learned as much as we did had we not taken this tour. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable since he has lived on the island for over 44 years. The only 2 negatives about this particular tour was the van was rather cramped even though there were only 10 of us and it seated 14. I guess it was just the type of van it was and glad it wasn't completely full. We got to stop twice and get out and do some sight seeing and picture taking for 15 minutes each time. That really isn't enough time, I wish we would have had more time when we stopped in both areas. Other than those 2 things, I would definitely recommend this tour.
Best tour on island.
Sallie_P, Sep 2023

Would recommend
Barbara_K, Sep 2023
Our driver Ken was great. Very knowledgeable and added personal stories about events on the island. The coach was comfortable. The only comment was finding the pick up location. We took the ferry from Falmouth and the direction we’re from the other terminal.
Wonderful experience!! And

An Exceptional Tour
Doris_B, Sep 2023
We had an exceptional tour, narrated by Wayne N., who was excellent. He is a native of the Vineyard, and he was able to provide a great history, as well as tidbits of his experience growing on the island. Wayne was very knowledgeable and interesting. I would recommend this tour to everyone!
Fun and informative
Chip_C, Sep 2023
Martha’s Vineyard tour with Bart, who lives on Simpsons way, Yes, Bart Simpson was the best. He shared with us his own private collection of fossils found in the cliffs. Viewing the Cliffs were spectacular. Bart told of two tribal Indians history, cruised over the Big bridge, filmed in Jaws movie. Driving through this town was very scenic. Lots of history. The van was comfortable and air conditioned.
Great tour
Aurora_P, Sep 2023
The tour was excellent. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and courteous. He provided and excellent overview of the island and its history.
Great experience all around.
Marguerite_K, Sep 2023
We (8 friends) were visiting Martha's vineyard for the first time. We were interested in learning about the island and its history. Devin our tour guide was great. He is a 4th generation islander and gave us great info about the history. The only comment we had was, the van was comfortable, however it was tight getting in and out of for an older non agile group. Great experience all around.
Great insight into Martha’s Vineyard
StuartJames_L, Sep 2023
Devon was a great host and he shared lots of interesting facts about Martha’s Vineyard. Trip provided a great insight into life on the island and covered all of its major towns. Would highly recommend tour.
Fascinating tour of island in just 3 hours!
Suzanne_M, Sep 2023
Matt, our guide, was a great resource for information about the island since he has grown up and lived here his entire life! This was by far one of the most fascinating tours I have ever taken! Matt spoke about all the separate towns on the island and how they differed from each other! Of course he noted the famous people who lived or still live on the island. He recommended a little mom and pop place to eat which really did have the best chicken wings! I would heartily recommend taking this tour, especially if you only have a limited time on the island. But it would be good to start an extended stay with… it would help give you an idea of general makeup of island and where you might want to spend more time!
Great tour
Richard_C, Sep 2023
Scenery was beautiful and driver was knowledgeable about the history and made some memorable stops along the way
Learned a ton
Holly_K, Sep 2023
The tour was jam packed with information and fun facts. The three short stops were excellent, and Phil was great!
Great overview of Martha’s Vineyard
Ned_L, Sep 2023
Mac was our driver and guide. He was very knowledgeable and full of interesting information. It was great to get an overview, seeing and hearing, of MV. Hopefully we can return someday and spend more time. The type of van used was a little small and, window-wise, did not provide the best views, as a regular sightseeing van/bus would have.
A Very Worthwhile 3 Hours
Stuart_E, Sep 2023
Our guide, Sam, was a retired native. He could not have been a better guide. Very informative about the history of "The Vineyard."🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗
Mac !!!
Sharon_D, Sep 2023
Mac was a wonderful guide. He was very knowledgeable. We enjoy listening to his voice it was great that he was a local.
Too rushed. Only one stop. It was disappointing.
Joanne_B, Sep 2023
None. It was too rushed and there was only one stop. Just constant driving. Boring and not what we expected.
Response from Host, Sep 2023
