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..

Took a tour at the last minute, I found the guides to be knowledgeable and well informed and very accommodating. They were there waiting for me as I left the ferry and were polite and friendly from the start. I was impressed with the quality of the vehicle and the custom element of the tour. I would do this again... More

Took this tour of Martha's Vineyard as recommended by our driver. Was not disappointed, Mr G was great. Knowledgeable, friendly and with really fun facts along the way. If you want a great way to see all of the best bits of the island go with Mr G

My girlfriends and I were visiting from California,, and although most of the shops/restaurants were closed and it was freezing, Cheryl was fabulous! She showed us things and told us history we would never had seen or heard on our own. The only way to experience the whole island in a few hours. Thanks!

Today was super fun! My family and I wanted to go to Martha's vineyard but we were kinda worried about the weather and it being off season. On the ferry ride over we researched online what we could do once we got there. We came across a tour advertisement and a man named Ron. He was funny, he was friendly... More

My family went to Martha's Vineyard this newyear weekend and we had taken the 3 hour tour and Dave Alton was our tour guide. The 3 hour trip felt so short along with Dave. Though it was winter and we did not have a lot of places open in many cities, Dave was able to show us all the key... More

In mid September I visited the island and hired their service for 4 hrs to tour the island. Cheryl King was my driver and she did a superb job of telling me interesting facts about the entire island, answering my questions, and driving me to the numerous areas I wanted to see. She helped me manage my time so as... More

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
