Day trip to Martha’s Vineyard

Fun day trip to Martha’s Vineyard! All of the arrangements were smooth and easy, and the travel went without a hitch. Noel provided fun facts and tips and made the journey to the ferry and back memorable. Highlights on the island were an great lunch in Edgartown, and the walking tour of Oak Bluffs. It was a cloudy day and not good beach weather, but still worth the trip to a beautiful island on our week in Jamestown/Newport.

Great places to visit on the island both Edgartown and Oak Bluffs are absolute musts. Glad you enjoyed them both.

easy transport from Newport to the Vineyard
Joanne_M

Noel was a great tour guide, personable and knowledgeable about the Newport area. Although we knew a guided tour was not included for Martha's Vineyard itself, it would have been great if we could have received the packet that he gave us ahead of time, maybe emailed to us. So we could've been better prepared. Or give the packet to us on the bus ride over, because honestly we didn't read it upon arriving at MV. The public bus system was confusing when we arrived. We didn't know which bus to take to "pay the unlimited" fee. I do recommend this tour because the transportation over to MV was simple. But we should've booked an actual MV tour because you want to see as much as possible in the time we had there.

Viator and Yeswevan have customer service nailed. Everyone was super nice, friendly and courteous. When we got sick on the original date they not only switched us with no problem but asked if they could do anything for us. I would recommend them unreservedly

Choosing this tour made everything about our trip experience even better. Great communication, extremely knowledgeable and a great sense of humor made the trip even more fun than we expected. They provided perfect recommendations for us to take advantage of our time on the island doing what we would enjoy most, and shared interesting information and stories about the history of various places in RI and Martha's Vineyard. I would highly recommend doing any tours that this group offers!

The staff at Yes we Van was just terrific! The drivers communicated with us in advance, they were on time, and they had a folder with tickets/tour information and goody bags with refreshments for every participant. Our driver, Noel, gave us a tour of the area on the way to the ferry. He was awesome. I would recommend this tour to anyone!

Covid strikes again

Our drivers were great and prompt. However, Viator should not be offering this tour during covid. Many restaurants were closed and we wasted a lot of time wondering around looking for a place to eat. I’m sure it’s lovely another time but currently save your money.

Thank you Laura D for taking the time to write a review of our Day Trip. As with other areas, our island paradise shows some signs of the effects of COVID-19. Some small businesses have limited hours but the quiet serenity of the island is always there for you. Walking along the sunny beaches, old New England cottages and one-of-a-kind shops, makes it a bit easier to take a much needed break for even just a day...

Rookie island traveler, no more!

Being from a land locked state and never experienced boarding a ferry or going to an island was somewhat an anxious endeavor, but Viator relieved every anxious moment. In business, communication is essential and they know this. I was made aware of the process of the day, and the driver, Noel, was an essential piece. He was in constant communication, was an educator, historian, and tour guide. He dropped us off at the ferry, told us exactly how to board, and texted us let us know that he was indeed waiting for us at the dock ready to take us home. We went July 2020 which is still in the COVID 19 pandemic and not everything was open (which we knew going in.) Unfortunately, the tours were not running, which was disappointing because there was no mention of this on their websites. This is your tip! Call the tours ahead of time and confirm or book your tour in advance. Also, the best way of travel the island is by mo-ped or bicycle which are readily available for rental. I plan on using Viator again in the future and recommend it 100%.
