Overview

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..

Hi Thank-you for your feedback! First of all, it was communicated to your group in advance through the tour info from your bus tour company, that we offer tours in 12-14 passenger vans, so all groups would be divided. Unfortunately, because the Coast Guard conducted...More

I will be visiting Boston in April and heard that there is a ferry that will take you to Martha's Vineyard, Nantucket, and surrounding areas. When I checked Viatar tour guides, all I see is that the ferry stops at Martha's Vineyard, but didn't mention the other islands. Any thoughts or ideas?
