I had a wonderful experience! As a first timer, having the 3 hour narrated tour was a great introduction to the island and learning about its history. It gives a great set up to be able to roam the island on your own for the next time. I highly suggest this tour!

A long but wonderful day. Our van driver, David, was personable and informative. We opted for 3/hr Vineyard tour and Tom, a local, had a ton of interesting anecdotes. The ferry ride to & from the island was a perfect way to observe the pristine beauty of the land & sea.
