Awesome trip. Our guide was excellent and extremely accommodating. Provided a lot of history along the way. He even had morning and afternoon snacks. I would also recommend the optional 3 hours island tour which provides a complete overview of the whole island.

Wow! We had a wonderful time, the best driver, jay, taking us from Boston to the ferry and back but the hi light of our tour was our guide, Phil, who enlightened us about Martha and #39;s Vineyard.

This tour was everything we expected and more. Our driver picked us up and he was pleasant, funny and knowledgeable and provided us with a nice drive to Falmouth to catch the ferry to Martha's Vineyard. We were offered water and muffins on the bus and we also stopped at McDonalds since we were ahead of schedule. Thanks everyone on our bus for being on time. The ferry ride over to the Vineyard was easy and nice. We opted to take the optional 3 hour bus tour once we got to Martha's Vineyard and I would highly recommend this tour. You will get a nice history of the island. Our driver had lived on Martha's Vineyard for 32 years and had a lot of stories to share as well as much history. We had plenty office afterward for a leisurely lunch and shopping. The ride back to Boston was pleasantaswelland again wend a great driver. This tour is a must!!
