Had a truly amazing JAWS tour with Dave. We drove around the whole island and saw many of the "sets" for the film. Dave was incredibly knowledgable about the film and told amusing and informative stories about the making of JAWS. The tour was like having a friend on the film telling you about all the insanity that went into... More

The $40 round-trip ferry cruise from Hyannis, Cape Cod, to Martha's Vineyard Island, out on the Atlantic Ocean was 2 1/2 hours of pure, relaxing, beautiful pleasure....it is the time to talk to passengers from around the world, close your eyes and breathe in the sea air, or just enjoy the 'real' ocean view. I arrived at Oak Bluffs on... More

Just returned from the Vineyard for the first time. The highlight of the vacation was our tour of the Trail and the Towns. Our guide, "Mr. G" was great and very knowledgeable about the Black history and experiences as well as the Island as a whole. Would recommend this tour especially for first timers.

Had an excellent tour with Dave. It was my husbands birthday and one of his favourite films is Jaws. Dave took us round the whole island and was very knowledgeable about where the film was set on the island. Maybe that's because he was an actual extra on the movie. He also had lots of other information about celebs on... More

Great three hour guided tour of the island. We missed our booking due to the insane crowds of the Steamship Authority port at Woods Hole, with the requirement to park 30 mins away and take a bus back to the porr. I When we called to change our booking, the tour office recommended we return to Falmouth and take instead... More

Our tour guide was Allison. She was fun, animated, peppy, and very knowledgeable/informative of Martha's Vineyard. The views, history, fame, & wealth are amazing. I can't imagine going to MV and not taking the guided tour. You will truly miss out. GREAT DAY!! Thank you Allison!

I spent an afternoon touring Martha's Vineyard in the comfort of a roomy and air conditioned van with 2 other couples and a resident tour driver who knew all the shortcuts and inside scoop and history of the island. Being a smaller van, we were able to access areas that the busses and larger vehicles could not. Being picked up... More

Alex was our guide and he provided us a memorable afternoon. It was our first trip to Martha's Vineyard and we can't wait to come back. The history, the community and the landscape all came alive with Alex's narrative. We were fortunate to have a spectacular August day to add to our trip. Needless to say, this was a terrific... More
