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..

This is a great tour to take before you go sight seeing on your own. The guide , Ken, was quite knowledgeable and he provided a lot of interesting facts about the island. There were not a lot of stops, but that was okay because...More

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Jeff. This tour only cost us $5 over the mixed group price and he catered it to our group. If you have a large enough group, it's the best value.
