Enjoyed trip. The guide was hard to understand and the trip to and from island was a little rough. Driver seemed to be in a hurray and drove too fast and careless.

Fantastic pick up from hotel. Comfortable drive to the ferry with a drink add snack. Driver very informative about the area. Easy access to the island queen ferry. Lovely day spent wandering around Oak Bluffs. Caught bus to Edgartown for 5 dollars- these go every 15 mins. Highly recommended day out

Being picked up from our hotel was so convenient. When we arrived at Martha's Vineyard the big blue bus was waiting for us. Our driver/guide was great and at each stop, we were able to get off and enjoy the sights.

It was so much fun! The bus driver was excellent and provided some great history tidbits throughout the ride. The bus and boat were comfortable, and the day was the perfect length. We didn't take the optional bus tour once we were on the island, but it was easy to get around on local transit.

I am a professor and I had a group of 13 college students. We all LOVED the tour! Our guide was friendly, knowledgeable, and gave us a wonderful tour of Martha's Vineyard. This was the very best way to see the island!
