we booked this tour thru the ferry company. The driver was a local and very knowledgeable. We saw most of the islands attractions and learned a bit about the history and local culture. There was adequate stops and opportunities for pictures.

Nantucket is an interesting place but far from exciting. The tour was very good though and funny at times with our host Betsy, who I would recommend. Tour takes around 1.5 hours and gives you a good view and information of and on the island.

Really the tour guide makes this trip, Betsy is 11th generation Nantucketer so you get a great history of the island. I could do without the Cranberry bogs but the history makes the tour worthwhile. You can jump on the bus straight from the ferry...More
