Great tour. The guides were very informative. Just a little too much time in the van. Would have liked more time to get out along the way but for a gal who generally does not like tours and who prefers to drive everywhere I was pretty satisfied. Saw a lot in a short period of time.

Not as expected - could be better planned

Drive down from Boston to vineyard was great with excellent guide and informative. But, the 3 hr tour of Martha’s Vineyard is not worth it at all. Skip at all cost. Unless you want to hear about who’s who in US politics and what rich person owns what land or house that you can’t even see, dont bother with Island 3hr tour. You only have 2x 20min walking - which was not even close to enough time to visit the light house nor walk on the eroding shoreline. Which would have been a lot more interesting than sitting in a van 3hrs looking at trees, road and so called famous places.
