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..

I recently used this service as a part of a group. We had three vans with 9 passengers in each. Our tour guide, Jim, was very knowledgeable, gave a lovely chatty tour, was very accommodating to assist our safe exit from the van, helping as needed. He was friendly & funny & I highly recommend this company.

As I always do, I used Trip Advisor to help plan and organize our visit to Martha's Vineyard. We arranged a private tour with Martha's Vineyard Transport and Tours. Cheryl King was our tour guide....she was awesome! She was born and raised on the island so it was fun to see all the wonderful sights through her eyes. We had... More

Since this was our first trip to Martha's Vineyard, MA, we decided to utilize a 3 hour guided tour to maximize our experience. This turned out to be a great decision. We reviewed the various options online and selected Martha's Vineyard Transport, www.mvislandtours.com. The four of us had a dedicated 15 passenger van with a fantastic driver/guide. Cheryl took us... More

My girlfriend surprised me with our first trip to Martha's Vineyard. It is an absolutely beautiful place to visit in general, but more particularly for me since I am a Jaws enthusiast. All but two scenes of Jaws were filmed on the island. We stayed at the Winnetu Resort on South Beach. They highly recommended Dave from MV Transport and... More

If you get to Martha's Vineyard be sure to take a ride on the Martha's Vineyard Tour bus. If you are lucky you will get Tad for the tour guide. Besides telling you about the island he points out homes of celebraties and notables along with personal stories about people who you can run into while walking around the Vineyard.... More

Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and funny at times. He knew the history of the island very well. We got our money's worth. If we would have taken our own car, we certainly would not have gotten the rich history our tour guilde shared with us. He even took us to John Beluchi,s grave site. Didn't even realize he... More

Arrived on the Island. Was greeted by Cheryl, our operator and tour guide. What followed was 31/2 hours of pure magic. Cheryl is native to the island. Just being with her gives you a sense of belonging. This was my 2nd visit in a year and I took the tour both times. I travelled this time with my two adult... More

Dave had a wealth of local knowledge, delivered with a pleasant personality. He was punctual in picking us up from our hotel and answered all our questions and we would recommend... More
