As you drive across the picturesque island, admire curiosities like America's oldest carousel and the cliffs of Aquinnah.

Turn a corner and see "The Flying Horse Carousel," America’s oldest carousel, operating since 1876. Continue to Edgartown, with its quaint harbor complete with an 80-year-old lighthouse. A former hub for the whaling industry, admire the stately Greek revival mansions built by ship captains. Travel along the idyllic countryside and small fishing villages before stopping for some clam chowder or lobster bisque in Menemsha. Next, arrive at the technicolor cliffs of Aquinnah before swinging by the bridge made famous in the movie Jaws.

I was really interested in getting an overview of the whole island. That’s what we got and our pleasant guide, RichM gave us insights which we never would have known had he not given so much effort to his presentation. I was mainly interested in Oak Bluffs and Edgartown and both of these towns were covered in detail. Thank you, RichM ‼️

Our guide, Jim, was knowledgeable, personable, and accommodating. This tour was worth the price especially on a gloomy day. I only wish we were able to spend some time in Edgartown.

Our tour guide, Rich, was very informative about the island... from the history to current activities to celebrity sitings. If you go on this tour, ask for him.

Our guide JP is a year round resident and educator. He was so knowledgeable about the island and gave such great commentary throughout the tour.

It was a very nice and comprehensive tour of the entire island. Also the information about where to pick up the tour really was ver helpful.
