A long but wonderful day. Our van driver, David, was personable and informative. We opted for 3/hr Vineyard tour and Tom, a local, had a ton of interesting anecdotes. The ferry ride to & from the island was a perfect way to observe the pristine beauty of the land & sea.

Excellent experience. Driver was prompt and efficient. Snacks and water provided on the drive. We chose not to do the optional island tour and enjoyed time on our own exploring the beauty of Martha’s Vineyard. Highly recommend!

Get your guide’s team is simply perfect and friendly! Transfer service and tour guide through Martha’s Vineyard was really well organized. We enjoyed the experience very much.

Jenny was fabulous and was very knowledgeable and personable. The ferry to the Martha’s Vineyard was great with plenty of free time.

Everything was on time. Bus driver was very informative and pleasant.
