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

This was our first visit to Martha's Vineyard and it was a day trip. We decided to take the 2 1/2 hour bus tour that covers the six island towns. We were extremely disappointed to see that there really wasn't much to see. Most of the tour consisted of driving through long narrow streets with only trees for a view.... More

We had a very enjoyable bus tour of the island. The tour lasted two and a half hours. The tour guide was very informative and funny at times. The tour included seeing the Gay Lighthouse, notable homes, views of beaches and cliffs. The tour makes a half hour stop for lunch and shopping. The food was so-so for the price.... More

Had a good experience on the tour. Driver Ted I think his name was, was great! Had me laughing the whole time with his dry sense of humor! It was really cold but he showed us a lot of stuff and was very knowledgable about MV. Had 2 idiots on our bus that ask dumb questions. Otherwise would highly recommend.

Took two tours in the past two months. One with my husband and one with a friend. The 1st tour we booked thru the Ferry service as we could never get anyone on the phone to answer questions. Price was reasonable for what they stated was offered – 2.5 hour basic tour of the entire island for around $31 (price... More
