My wife and I took this tour October 18, 2015 and it was most enjoyable. The tour guide (I wish I remembered his name) was very knowledgeable and ready to answer all questions. If this helps, he wore a cowboy hat and had his dog "Lady" with him. His dog was most friendly. We were given ninety minutes in Edgartown... More

For 1st timers on the island, this 2.5 hour tour which leaves from Oak Bluff provides an interesting tour around a few of the cities on the island. They did give you a 25.00 food voucher for the Marthas Chowder house. Just pass on this or give your voucher to someone already eating there :) Your typical point, talk and... More

Although initially a little apprehensive, we soon settled down to enjoy our tour with driver, Mike (Mad Mike?).it was such a unique experience travelling in such a vehicle, together with a unique driver. Mike was a fund of local knowledge and good zany humour. Having apparently lived on the Island since the 1970s he had many stories of the rich... More

For 1st timers on the island, this 2.5 hour tour which leaves from either Vineyard Haven or Oak Bluff provides an interesting tour around Martha's Vineyard. We found that it identified spots for later exploration.

We took both the bus tour so we could see all the towns in the area and then the next day took the trolley which was a little different tour and allowed for time to shop and eat.

Tony was our informative bus driver; excellent knowledge of history and island. Drove through all six towns starting out in Oaks Bluff. Stopped for 1/2 hour at Aquinnah to see cliffs and seaside attraction. A great sampler tour to pick our favorite spots on island.

This two and a half hour bus tour goes through the six towns in Martha's Vineyard and makes a short stop in Aquinnah. The driver was knowledgeable and humorous, but you cannot see a lot from the bus and you are passing large Forrest areas for a good portion of the trip. I would have preferred to spend time in...

The trip was worth it but overlong with not enough stops. The bus was on old school bus, not enough leg room and the seats were hard. The driver was knowledgeable but droned on and on. The only stop was at the Bluffs.

We took a 2 hour tour around Martha's Vineyard. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and quite funny with his commentary and jokes. At the end of the tour he told us he was from Azerbaijan and learned to speak English from watching TV. I enjoyed this tour tremendously. Highly recommended.
