This 3-hour tour (2.5 hour narrated tour and 15-minute stops each in Menemsha and  Cliffs of Aquinnah) will introduce you to our 100 Square mile island by giving you the history both past and present of our six unique towns. You will learn about and see:

Oak Bluffs: A Victorian seaside resort that was built around the Methodist campgrounds. The campground is now known for its beautiful open-air tabernacle and the 300 plus Victorian gingerbread cottages from the mid-1800's, that replaced the tents once used for summer revival meetings. The Flying Horse Carousel one of the oldest platforms carousels still in use resides here.

Edgartown has a picture book setting with its harbor and waterfront, along with its stately white Greek Revival houses built by whaling captains and carefully maintained. The Old Whaling Church with its six massive columns, the Edgartown Harbor Lighthouse, and the historic Harborview Hotel make Edgartown a museum piece community.

The busy harbor town of Vineyard Haven — entry port to Martha's Vineyard since the mid-1600's and our year-round port.

We will take a drive through the scenic up-Island country-side passing through the historic farming towns of West Tisbury and Chilmark, making a 15 min stop in Menemsha an Idyllic fishing village where you can sample some "clam chowdah or lobstah bisque".

You'll see the breathtaking multi-colored clay cliffs of Aquinnah (Gay Head), with its impressive lighthouse where you will have an opportunity to get out take pictures and stretch your legs.

Because the island is so diverse, on your drive you'll catch glimpses of centuries-old stone walls, views to the Atlantic shoreline, grazing livestock, rolling hills and historic homesteads. and will go over the bridge used in the filming of the movie Jaws.

Our tour guides are all long-time island characters who love sharing their love of the island with you, so sit back and enjoy all our island has to offer when you, come and tour with us.
