This is an amazing trip, not just to see Martha's Vineyard, but also to see some of the surrounding area on our way down to the ferry. The island itself is so beautiful and our guide on the trip, Tom was so good and really made the 3 hours zoom buy. He was very informative with lots of info to share and some stories of his time on the island, loved it! If you want to see this island book with Steve and New England Tours Inc, they are superb!

The Martha's vineyard tour was excellent. We were picked up on time. The rides on bus and ferry were pleasant once we arrived we had the 3 hour island tour which was fantastic. Our driver was very knowledgeable and gave us plenty of time to explore on our own. He even stopped longer at the fish market so we could buy and eat fresh seafood. It was a wonderful tour day. I highly recommended it!!

Went on this trip on Saturday October 6th. It was a nice drive down in the mini-bus and took less time than expected. We arrived at the ferry in plenty of time. Enjoyed the boat ride over to the island. We had also booked the additional guided tour of the island. Our tour guide Anthony was great. He was very friendly and informative with a little humor thrown in. It was our first visit to Martha's Vineyard, so it was good to get an overall view of all there is to offer there. We still had plenty of time to eat and explore on our own before boarding the ferry for the return trip. Would definitely recommend this tour.

The trip was great. It was a long day but well worth it. Took a bus ride to catch the ferry and off to the island. We took the tour on the island, bus driver was okay did not let you get some of the pictures because the bus was moving too fast to take them. Had a nice lunch there. We headed back across the ferry to meet up with our bus driver, not her fault but we hit alot of traffic coming back partially from the Red Sox game.

The weather was perfect for a short visit to Martha's Vineyard. We were impressed with our tour guide, Tom, who lives there. This was a great way to get a taste of the island.

Picked up at a hotel close by, the tour provides snacks and water, plenty of restroom breaks. Nice driver and interaction with visitors. A good value, take the additional tour, very interesting and good use of time. Still free time left for shopping and lunch. Eat lobsterling there, better value than in Boston.

The driver/tour guide, Jeff is great. He had just about the right amount of information while driving from Boston to Falmouth. My daughter and I were the first to get picked up at one of the hotel pick-ups from her apartment. .At 6am pick-up, Jeff was on time and courteous. The cold bottled water and blue berry/chocolate chip muffins in the morning to the ferry terminal and cold bottled water and bags of chips on the way back from the ferry at the end of the day was a really nice touch.

From pickup to drop off, everything went smooth. Paid for the extra 3 hour tour on the island and felt was beneficial to seeing areas beyond the pier where the ferry drops you off. Could be a little slow at times but convenient. Guides were informative and loved to answer questions.

Our bus driver was wonderful, picked us up at our hotel early, had water and snacks for us, he was very accommodating. The ferry ride was very nice, no other way we would have wanted to take a day trip to Martha’s Vineyard!

I got a good feeling about New England Trips as soon as I bought my ticket. The gentleman who connected with me to confirm my pickup location and time was very personable. I was picked up for the tour right on time, and there was plenty of space in the van, so I could spread out a little . They provided water and snacks, and we also had a rest stop on the way. The driver was very nice and did some narration on the way, as well as explaining about the tour . We each got a little envelope with our name on it and Steve (the owner's) number on it in case we got lost or took the wrong ferry or something.I opted to take the three hour tour of the island, and was glad I did. The driver, a year-round resident of Martha's Vineyard, was very knowledgeable and informative. We had enough time to get out and walk around at the two stops, then when the tour was over, I had about two hours to explore Oak Bluffs. I thought that was just about right.I actually live in Boston, and decided to take this day trip rather than figure everything out for myself, and I think it was much more relaxing that way.I plan to take more New England Trips!

There is no way to visit all of Martha’s Vineyard in one day unless you take this tour. The driver Anthony was humorous and extremely knowledgeable about the different locations around the island.

New England Tours is a top notch and well oiled operation. We were picked up from our hotel exactly as promised and what an experience with a wonderful guide Kevin who was very informative and thoughtful through our drive to Falmouth to board the Island Queen to Martha’s Vineyard. Alexander was great driving us through the island and and pointing out to all details. This one day outing is great and highly recommended and very reasonable in price. I’m glad my family and I did it.

My family and I had a great time on the day trip to Martha’s Vineyard. Steve, the owner, was very helpful with our booking since we scheduled it at the last minute. Our driver, Jeff, was awesome. Made sure we arrived early and was very friendly. Overall, a great experience!

If you're at a major hotel downtown Boston, the pickup/dropoff is very nice. Our driver was super courteous and very clear about what we were doing. Pay for the extra tour on the island unless you have a way of getting around on your own. Our tour driver on the island was great, and the ferry ride out and back was nice and cool which was much needed on a warm summer day.
