Traveler Tips

Take the additional 3 hour tour on the island to get a good overview and see the highlights.
I would highly recommend doing the add-on for the 3 hour guided tour so that you are able to hit all the highlights of the Island, especially if this might be your first and only trip to Martha's Vineyard.

Great way to see Cape Cod and Martha's Vineyard
Angela_W, Aug 2022
In Boston for concert at Fenway and decided to add a day in Martha's Vineyard. This trip took us through Cape Cod and a ferry ride to Martha's Vineyard. Great way to see the area. Our guide was the owner. He was pleasant, knowledgeable and a great driver. Pick up and drop off at our hotel. Highly recommend this trip.
Great way to see Martha’s Vineyard in 1 day

Very knowledgeable tour guide. Efficient travel between Boston and the ferry to the island. Very glad we went!
Great trip, highly recommend
May_L, Aug 2022
What a wonderful day! The tour was very well organized. Rory picked us right on time and shared a lot of interesting knowledge of Boston, we enjoyed very smooth ride both to the ferry and back to Boston. The van was comfortable with good AC. It would be nicer to have bottle of water though on the way to Woods Hole, so it's good idea to bring your own water in case get really thirsty. The 45 minutes ferry ride provided fantastic view of the Atlantic! Harry is our tour guide on the island and he's so humorous, knows the island inside out. We are so glad we took the island tour. Thank you to both Rory and Harry!

Pat_F, Jul 2022
The tour of Martha's Vinyard. We had a great tour guide. The tour through Cape Cod did not happen. The driver said because of traffic but we left an hour later than the tour information said. I was ver disappointed that i missed a part of the tour that was promised.
beware of false historical stories!
DianeW, Jul 2022
we heard from our driver that there was a shortage of his tour guide drivers so the owner was the driver and we were given his opinion of history of Boston with several erroneous historical explanations - especially with his disdain of the US government and Kennedys specifically and the dirt and misdeeds not the accomplishments of the Kennedys - especially with an international groups from Australia and France. then he shared how the French came to boston and kidnapped /purchased Indians Blacks to take them back as slaves to France!!!!! told us how successful he and his family are- etc. Matt was very friendly with a clear biased perspective that was not appreciated- wanted to get history of area not the Enquiror
Awesome trip
Melody_R, Jul 2022
Last minute decision turned into a very nice day… informative guides - Matt from Boston to Cape Cod then Harry around Martha’s Vineyard… made the trip that much better. Highly suggest doing the addition of the guided tour around MV…they make a few stops for photo ops and give some time at the end for a little shopping, sightseeing or eating… overall, glad we took the tour.
Awesome excursion - very...

Our driver, Matt, was amazing!! He provided helpful tips and was full of information!! The time in MV seemed to fly by, but it was beautiful.
Excellent Historical, cultural tour
Jose_J, Jul 2022
It was a beautiful experience. From the time I was picked up from my hotel to the time of dropped off. My tour guide is very knowledgeable of the Boston’s areas, history, and culture. He kept us all entertained the entire trip. Very friendly. I would do it again definitely with the same company. Hopping to come back for their fall foliage tour.
Beautiful day trip with teens- beach/bikes/lobster rolls
Jocelyn_U, Jul 2022
Our driver/guide Rory did a great job of accommodating all types of guests. Pick up from our hotel was prompt and he drove safely, and gave us some interesting Boston highlights and tips during our 2 hour drive there. The ferry was a nice ride maybe 45 minutes and we rented bikes while we were on the island, got some beach time in, and enjoyed Lobster Rolls for lunch. We were home around 6:30 and all had a great time!
Great history maybe more stops
Enrica_H, Jul 2022
Harry was a terrific tour guide and gave us all the history about the island that you could want. The only thing that I would suggest is to maybe finish the tour in Edgartown and give advice to catch a bus back to Oaks Bluff and ferry.
Fabulous with maybe a tweet to itinerary
Enrica_H, Jul 2022
All the history of the Island was absolutely fantastic. Harry was very good. The only thing that I would suggest is to maybe finish the tour in Edgartown and give advice to catch a bus back to Oaks Bluff and ferry.
A great day , all in all!
Stephen_S, Jul 2022
Our driver from Boston , Rorry, an interesting and knowledgeable young man, was a pleasure to ride with. Harry, our on island guide, native retired islander was the best you could ask for. Very accommodating and with many interesting and personal stories!
BETTYR_L, Jun 2022
Enjoyed guide's humor and information that made 3 hours interesting, belly-roll laughter at times and extras for our tour. Got to see a large part of the island and had free time for leisure lunch and shopping before having to return on ferry. Driver to the Vineyard was also very informative showing interest points on our 1 1/2 hr drive. Also supplied us with restaurant suggestions where locals frequent rather than chains.

Our guide/driver was great and very informative. He was on time for pick up and the entire trip was wonderful. I enjoyed the entire trip.
Great day trip
Gary_M, Jun 2022
This tour is excellent. The tour guide for the Island Tour was great. He kept things interesting for sure. Beautiful scenery around the island. I really enjoyed the cliffs even if it was raining that day. The different little towns were interesting. I especially liked the "gingerbread houses".
