Even tho it was pouring the day we went, we had a great time and learned a lot about Nantucket's past. Highlight of the tour was the Hadwen House, a beautiful Greek Revival house built by a wealthy merchant and eventually bequeathed to the NHA. In addition to the tour, the $10.00 price includes same day access to other houses... More

we went on two walking tours and each one was excellent. We started at the museum and walked to different houses or buildings. We were led by knowledgable docents who brought the history of these houses to life. They knew about houses along the way and stopped to answer our questions. We learned about the people and what life was... More

Very good tour! It was a personal tour for my friend and me, because no one else signed up. A young woman led the tour. She had lots of information to share with us. It would be an adult tour. The history of the town and the old homes was interesting.

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.
