“Nice Guided Tour”
Reviewed 22 June 2012

For $10, you get a guided tour of the Vincent house (c, 1671) and the adjacent Fisher house and "Whaling Church" (both early 1800s),
The tours start in, and concentrate on, the Vincent house, a very well preserved Cape Cod style house, with some period furnishings. Our guide was very knowledgable and articulate, happy and able to answer questions.
We tried to visit on a Saturday, when they were closed. There was no sign giving hours or details, We tried again on Monday, with better luck. They were open at 11:00, and had hourly tours, lasting almost an hour.

“Interesting!”
Reviewed 20 June 2012

We bought the $15 tour package which included Vincent House, the Dr. Daniel Fisher House, The Old Whaling Church, Martha's Vineyard Museum, the Old Sculpin Gallery, and the Edgartown Lighthouse. The Vincent House was our first stop, and the most interesting.

The tour there lasted about 30 minutes, and the tour guide was knowledgeable and shared a lot of interesting information about the house and the period, as well as about architecture in general. This tour was combined with the Old Whaling Church and the Fisher House tours, and each of those lasted 15 minutes, for a total of one hour. We could have walked through the Vincent house without the tour, but I'm glad we chose the tour instead as I learned so much more than I would have otherwise.
