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..

The tour was arranged within 2hours as we stepped on island after we strolled around Camp meeting Asociasion and sat down to eat. The tour guy was very informative, personal and very attentive to details. We had plenty of stops to take pictures, stretch legs, and browse the local shops for souvenirs. The tour covered all major sightseeing points, so... More

My wife and I arrived at 10 AM after traveling on the ferry from Hyannis. The driver called us on our cell phone to coordinate, and we met in Oak Bluffs. He was very helpful and knowledgeable about the island and it's history. The tour included just my wife and myself, so we traveled in a 15 passenger van. We... More

The trolley tour was less crowded that the bus tour and much more personal. Our tour guide (his name was Cat) was fabulous. He was very informative and very amusing. Recommend this tour.

we were expecting more from this private tour. the driver was nice enough, but it was kind of boring. we never were offered to get out to explore a bit or take photos, as was explained over the phone. we were taken through a lot of commercial, traffic filled areas, not what we were expecting. the route seemed to waste...

Phillip was a great guide and having been born and raised on the island, he knew so much about the different towns. Maybe a little tough not having time at more stops, but what a great way to visit your first time on the island.

Enjoyed a 3 hour tour with Dave Alton as our guide. As a local, he was very knowledgeable on the ins and outs, as well as the history of Martha's Vineyard. We made a few fun stops along the way (Meneshma Fish Market was our favorite!), and we found the time really flew by. Dave was entertaining and caring about... More

Booked the shared tour for 3 hours for a party of four. Best bargain at $45 per person! Normally $100 per hour per group. Philip Tucker was knowledgeable and professional. Highly recommend the lobster roll and bisque at Menemsha. As a native of Martha's Vineyard, Phillip was a wealth of knowledge and entertaining. Best way to tour the island!

Great private tour of the Island. We arrived on the ferry from Falmouth only to discover that I had mistakenly booked the tour for the next day. Ron (the owner) was very accommodating and rearranged the reservation to meet our schedule. This was all accomplished within about 30 minutes. Cheryl King (tour guide) conducted an excellent and very thorough tour... More
