There really isn't a whole lot to see. The houses all look alike; famous people do live there, but in the back of a van all you see is their hedges. We were crammed into the back row so probably didn't experience the view that people up front saw. Gail stops for people who want to take pictures but there... More

Gail should be your number one choice for an overview tour of Nantucket. Comfortable Mercedes van covers quite a bit of island tidbits in just an hour and a half. You'll love her and her stories.

This is a large van with big picture windows. Gail is a native to Nantucket going back generations and has a rich knowledge of the area. This is only about 2 hours and just touches on the highlights but you get a good overview of what to go back and further explore. She stops for pictures and you get out... More

I was a little hesitant to take Gail's tour your given some of the prior negative reviews. My wife, daughter and I all loved this tour which lasted almost 2 hours. This tour covered all of Nantucket with helpful detailed info all along the way. At every major attraction she asked if anyone wanted to stop for pictures. Gail and... More

Gail was a great guide for an overall view of the island. She has some good stories of the history, including family stories and local gossip. For the most part any pictures you want to take will be taken through the van window (hopefully you're in a window seat on the side of the thing you want a picture of... More

I had booked Gail's Tours through the recommendation of our hotel. She was extremely informative, friendly and willing to stop just about anywhere for pictures. She has wonderful knowledge of Nantucket as she was born and raised there. We saw many things during our tour. Old grist mill, famous homes, oldest home, lighthouses, cranberry bogs, etc etc. Her tour let... More

A goup of 12 of us took this tour at $30 per person. It was definitely not worth the money. It went quickly by many spots without stopping for pictures. Gail was knowlegeable about the area, but covered it all so quickly it was hard to take it all in. At one point, she actually bordered on being rude when... More

Gail seemed tired and tired of talking. The van was HOT in the back and with the a/c on high, we couldn't hear. I felt like it was just, "well, there's that and here's this." She seemed bored with her own tour. Only good thing was going out to Sconset. I wouldn't recommend this tour.

A good quick tour with history of island thrown in, would not suggest the longer tour. This gives you basic information about the island
