Great tour which was guided by a local person so we got some great stories on our way round by someone with lots of local knowledge. We started at Oak Bluffs and went all the way round the island in 2 and a half hours. Saw lots of homes of the rich and famous as well as the areas were... More

Island Transport was a convenient mode of transportation not having a vehicle on the island. They showed up at the allotted times for pick up from the hotel and for transportation to restaurants. The drivers were friendly and courteous.

We took the 2.5 hour island tour, as not having been on the island prior, nor having our car, it would be a nice overview. There were several points seen and history given that wouldn't have known otherwise. The bus was late leaving, which then cut our tour short/pushed it a bit. The 30 min Aquinnah stop could easily have... More

We took the two hour tour around Martha's vineyard and the bus driver was informative but very monotone. In addition the air conditioning did not work and the windows did not open fully. We were steaming. When we arrived and stepped out of the bus, we felt like we had stepped into AC- it was so hot inside. The driver... More

Disorganized at the Port. Not worth the money. Most of our time was a lunch break in Edgartown. Didn't see much except the beach where JAWS was filmed. They use converted school buses.

I'm sure the trolley tour is fine, we just had a bad experience. We landed early in morning and asked ferry landing about next trolley tour. A representative at landing said we could leave on the next bus and told us to walk a block to get tickets using a credit card. She said the bus would pick us up... More

our first time to Martha's Vineyard- so we wanted to get an overview of the island- so we take the 2 1/2 hour tour which leaves right on time in a nice air-conditioned bus which was full! Driver was personable and tried to be funny- after a while his humor was a bit obnoxious! you pass through all the major... More

We only had a few hours on the island and wanted to have to get an overview of the place and its history. The tour fitted the bill just right - we got to see the main towns on the island and learn something of its history. Our guide was very good (although his accent was a bit tricky at... More

I learned a few things on this tour and the driver was funny in a corny way. However, I cannot recommend this tour to anyone and I wish I spent the 2.5 hours walking around Edgartown or Vineyard Havens instead. With the ferry scheduling, I only had 6 hours to spend on Martha's Vineyard for my day trip. It was... More

I only had part of an afternoon to see Martha's Vineyard, and this bus trip was suggested to me by a woman who had done it the previous day. Was not disappointed. Comfortable air-conditioned bus, and I got to see the entire island - which I wouldn't have been able to do otherwise. Great way for first-timers to pinpoint where... More
