Tour Martha's Vineyard in a 14 passenger, a/c touring van. Fully narrated by local, knowledgeable, and friendly guides. Our famous one hour tour, or, a 2.5 to 3 hour tour, which covers the entire island with great stops at the clay cliffs of Aquinnah and the working fishing village of Menemsha. See lighthouses, historic whaling captain homes from the 1800's on the streets of Edgartown. Enjoy Oak Bluffs, a Victorian style summer resort built around the historic Methodist Campground. We also offer 2 hour and customized tours.We travel to many places the "tour bus" cannot go....Martha's Vineyard Transport is the original van tour company, and now its seems Martha's Vineyard Excursion (ex neighbor employee) .not only copied are business plan, but also our ad picture of the van at the East Chop lighthouse..

Rode over on the Seastreak fast ferry over to Martha's Vineyard. It was a very nice ride over to the island. The views over to the island was great, and the ferry was very comfortable. I would advise getting reservations for your ride. I got lucky getting in early and got on the first ferry over.

We traveled as a family to the Vineyard with four adults and three children. At the spur of the moment we decided to reserve a private island tour, and due to the overwhelmingly positive reviews MV Tours was an easy selection. The price felt right, and we hopped on it. Ron answered the phone and quickly accommodated my group in... More

As part of my job I provide concierge services for guests at a luxury Boston Hotel. I had an e-mail request prior to arrival that a guest wanted a "Full, Private Tour" of Martha's Vineyard for he and his wife. Martha’s Vineyard Tours and Transportation did not disappoint. I made all arrangements online and subsequently had follow up questions and... More

We had a super experience touring Martha's Vineyard with Dave. We shared a comfortable van with several other couples for a 2 1/2 hour tour of the island. This is the best way to learn about the history of and the stories of the famous people who visit the island. In the van we could make stops in places a... More

They were able to juggle their schedule during very busy time to accommodate a party of eight. Ron the owner drove and was very entertaining over the next couple of hours. Not a canned presentation, but eclectic. We all had fun and learned a lot about the vineyard. Van comfortable and air-conditioned.

We went on a 2-hour tour of mostly Oak Bluffs, Vineyard Haven, and Edgartown. We had asked for any Jaws movie trivia/ locations our driver, Dave, knew of, and since he was on set and an extra in the movie, he knew so much. We had a clean, van with AC for nine people, and Dave was funny, interesting and... More

We had Dave Alton as our guide . He was incredible. So knowledgeable of the area since he has live here since 1973 !!! Van was clean , right on time, and back in time! And Ron was a hoot in the office when we made our reservation.

Took a three hour tour with Dave as our guide, an interesting and entertaining old salt with local knowledge. Highly recommend Dave as the starting point for any visit to Martha's Vineyard. Gives you overview to go back to highlights for more detailed exploring.

A group of us recently took an hour tour with Martha's Vineyard Transport and Tours guided by Dave Alton on August 9, 2015. Going into this I was apprehensive about being stuck in a van for two hours. I have to say, I was more than pleasantly surprised. We ended up having to cut the tour down to one hour... More

Our driver, Ken, was extremely pleasant, knowledgeable, and friendly. I would highly recommend the modest expense of this guided tour of the island. There is much to learn about this beautiful vacation destination, and this tour does a great job of exposing many of the secrets and interesting tidbits that you will want to know.
