Owner Ron & one of his guides gave our group of 24 the tour of Martha's Vineyard. What an informative & entertaining pair they were. Nothing was too much effort for them. He called while we were still on the ferry & told us exactly how to find him when we got off the ferry. So accommodating. We thoroughly enjoyed... More

Did this tour in July. Our tour guide was Gary. Very interesting guy with some neat life experiences. Knowledgable about JAWS and the history. At times felt like a tour of Gary's life rather than a tour of MV. We also only exited the van twice, once to use the restroom (at our request) and once in Aquinnah. We returned... More

We were visiting Martha's Vineyard with 6 adults and 6 kids. We wanted to see parts of the island that we had not yet seen but had limited time. We also needed to make the tour interesting for the kids. When we called about the tour, Annette was very helpful and took the time to design a tour within our... More

Dave was our tour guide and was great. We did the 3 hour island tour and he had a lot of local stories and knew the history of the island. He dropped us off at Oak Bluffs for our ferry in the afternoon. Our ferry was canceled due to the wind and he came back to pick us up and... More

We visited Martha's Vineyard as part of an 11-night trip to include Washington, Chicago, Boston, Martha's Vineyard and New York. We managed to fit in a lot in those 11 nights but this tour (and the tour guide Dave Alton) was the highlight as put simply it was a "money can't buy event" for us. What an absolutely fascinating guy... More

Can not say enough about our tour guide Jack and Ron the owner...from the get go they were accommodating and helpful...our private tour with Jack was first rate...very personal and very well planned out and executed...again, high praise to their collective efforts and I would recommend them to anyone looking for a great efficient way to discover MV.

My husband and I were looking for a comprehensive tour in a short amount of time as we only had a day to spend on Martha's Vineyard. Our local tour guide, Reggie, showed us all but one of the towns on Martha's Vineyard in two hours. We listened to his personal experiences with some of the famous residents, as well... More

Owner Ron was very accommodating to our group of 30 tourists from Michigan. He was flexible and worked with us to see some unplanned sites on the island. His staff was prompt, friendly, courteous and knowledgable. Mr. G was exceptional! It's not easy to offer a great experience to a large group but we were very well satisfied.

We chose Martha's Vineyard Transport and Tours because we wanted to be on the smaller van rather than a bus since the van is able to go into areas where a bus cannot. Typically they cater to tour groups but allow direct reservations when there is room available. Ron was able to add my husband and I onto a tour... More
