“Surprisingly interesting!”

Nantucket Historical Association Walking Tours
Ranked #7 of 32 Tours in Nantucket
Attraction details
Reviewed 31 August 2013 via mobile

We took a walking tour of historic houses and it was a tour not to miss while in Nantucket. We had only four people on the tour which made it almost a private tour. Our guide, Linda, was absolutely the best in explaining the history of Nantucket and we literally had a chance to touch 200 year old items. You'll learn a lot about early American history. Do it if you like architecture or/and history.

Thank you so much for your review of you recent experience on the Historic House Walking Tour. That's wonderful to hear that you and your group had such a personal experience, and we will definitely pass along your kind words to Linda. We're glad that you enjoyed visiting Nantucket homes spanning three centuries and that you were able to come in contact with some very unique artifacts. Thank you so much for participating and we look forward to seeing you again someday!

Our tour guide for Historic Houses tour was enthusiastic and well informed. I saw houses (inside, too!) that I had never seen in my years of visiting Nantucket. It was a great balance of building styles and life styles over the years. Just the right amount of time. I would tour again in a heartbeat with NHA.

Guides are locals who live year round on the island & are very knowledgeable. They give everyone full attention to questions asked.

While we have been to Nantucket many times, there is a lot about her history that we do not know. This tour and several hours spent in the Whaling Museum were wonderful learning experiences.

We are delighted that you had an opportunity to take a walking tour with us - especially during this splendid fall weather! It is a truly wonderful way to learn about the people and place that make this island's history so fascinating. We are thrilled you visited the Whaling Museum as well and look forward to seeing you again soon.
