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..

Dave A. was our tour guide....picked us up as per plan and then provided a tremendously informative and fun narration as we toured Martha's Vineyard. We only had one day to see and experience what we could. He went the extra mile, as we left a bag in his van, and he promptly found us and returned it to us... More

We were in on a day trip. Five days before our trip, I was able to secure a reservation for a three hour tour. I requested Dave after reading the many reviews here and we were not disappointed. I received a call from Dave about 30 minutes prior to our ferry arriving. He was right where he said he would... More

As I saw in previous reviews, we scheduled our Jaws Tour with Dave, an actual extra in the original movie, and we were not disappointed. Dave had great info on the filming and took us to several locations where clips from Jaws were filmed. He was entertaining and very knowledgable. We would have never seen this much of the island...

Mr. G was an awesome tour guide! He navigated my family and I around the island and pointed out various interesting tidbits of history on the island from a diverse perspective. I would highly recommend his tours.

We arranged for a private tour with "Tours & Transportation". Our driver Ken arranged for a location to pick us up and then took us on a customized tour. He was an excellent tour guide and was very knowledgeable about all of Martha's Vineyard. It was exactly what we wanted. We highly recommend Ken and Tours & Transportation if you... More

My family of 10 had the pleasure of being shown this beautiful island by Alex of MV Tours. Nice van, private tour, reasonable price. Great way to get an overview of the 6 distinct communities of MV. But the best part was Alex, who grew up on the island. We heard sweet stories, like how a certain bakery has a... More

We took a 3-hour tour with Cheryl, a Wompanoag Indian, the native peoples of Martha's Vineyard. She was so knowledgeable and friendly, it was a great way to see the whole island and understand its history. Thank you Cheryl.
