Great take. We walked to each location it only took a few minutes to get to each one. The Historical Society people were very helpful, nice, knowledgable

My friend was gracious enough to let us stay at her home on Nantucket. It was my first visit. We took the tour. It was informal and fun. It was also very I formative. I would definitely recommend it.

We took a walking tour of historic houses and it was a tour not to miss while in Nantucket. We had only four people on the tour which made it almost a private tour. Our guide, Linda, was absolutely the best in explaining the history of Nantucket and we literally had a chance to touch 200 year old items. You'll... More

Our tour guide for Historic Houses tour was enthusiastic and well informed. I saw houses (inside, too!) that I had never seen in my years of visiting Nantucket. It was a great balance of building styles and life styles over the years. Just the right amount of time. I would tour again in a heartbeat with NHA.

While we have been to Nantucket many times, there is a lot about her history that we do not know. This tour and several hours spent in the Whaling Museum were wonderful learning experiences.

Very knowledgeable guide on our walking tour, and lots to learn. It certainly sticks with you better hearing it rather than reading it. Nantucket played a pivotal role in world commerce during its whaling days, and you are remiss if you don't learn about it!

The guide knew the town currently and in history. My husband and I enjoyed 2 walking tours, one early morning and one mid morning. The tour about the Great Writers on Nantucket was especially interesting.

My husband and I took the daily 11:15 hour-long (or so) walking tour of downtown, and it was a great introduction to everything we'd see on the rest of our four-day visit. The guide painted a vivid picture of life during the whaling heyday, the 1846 fire that burned much of the downtown, and the extraordinary connection Nantucket has always... More
