Attraction details
Owner description: 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..

Just yesterday, 12/2/14, we embarked on a short day trip to the Vineyard and we were greeted by our tour guide, Cheryl King. This was absolutely the best tour and tour guide - ever. Cheryl's enthusiasm and knowledge of the Vineyard was remarkable. Cheryl is a native of the Vineyard so we learned and saw a 'native's' view of the... More

We were a group of six and had never been to the Vineyard. Being mid-November we expected that many places would be closed for the season but our tour guide (Dave) brought it all alive. He was very knowledgeable and entertaining as well with stories of things that an average tourist might not be aware of. Dave stopped wherever we... More

Just one week ago (November 1), I toured Martha's Vineyard and cannot say enough about the company (Martha's Vineyard Transport and Tours), the owner (Ron Minkin) and my tour guide (Cheryl King). Ron was very competent and organized when I called to make a reservation. I had a very short time frame -- just one night on the Island and... More

You can see from the 200+ reviews that this is an awesome tour company. We were there in Oct. 2014 and decided to do a last minute tour. We got Dave Alton as our guide and he was as good as the other reviewers have said. It was a great way to see and learn about the island. Thanks you... More

Finally, after many years of visiting the Cape, we decided it was time to do a all encompassing tour of Martha's Vineyard. Our hotle recommended a private tour of the vineyard with this company. My wife and I wanted to see the great landscape, the vistas, and hear some history of the island. Wow...did these guys come throught for us.... More

Had a fabulous tour of MV in October, We had been before but did not take the tour this time we did. Our Guide Jocko was very knowledgeable of the island. Because the van was smaller than a bus we got to visit areas that buses would not fit. Our guide gave us little tidbits of info along the way,... More

We were only on the island for a few hours and decided last minute to book a tour. Rang mv island tours and Alex picked us up within 20 minutes. Had a lovely 2 hour tour of the island with his local knowledge. It's a beautiful place.

On October 14, 2014 my husband and I were bringing three of my out of town (from Arizona) family members to Martha's Vineyard for the day. I had called another tour bus company the day before and was told there was no need to make a reservation for the following day and given the times of their tours. While waiting... More

On a recent trip to Martha's Vineyard, my husband and I and another couple made a last minute decision to take a private tour of the island instead of a bus tour. That was absolutely the right choice. Our guide, Jack, took us around the entire island, sharing its history and many facts. He took us down narrow streets and... More

Took the private 3 hour tour of M.V. and were very glad we did. Our tour guide Ron [who I think is one of the owners] was a font of knowledge about the island.Very comprehensive w/o being boring.Made several stops to break up the length of the tour, including a stop at Larsen's Fish Market for a very tasty pre-lunch...
