We spent 4 hours with this tour and couldn't have asked for anything better! Our guide Russell was so sincere and knowledgable having grown up on the island. We met many locals and saw all the hot spots. This was the best way to see the island!

“Perfect Tour - perfect service”
Reviewed 18 December 2013

Sue Bennett was the one person helping us out when we missed the last bus around the island. Good that we missed it because the private tour guided by Al was superb. It can only be good when the guided tour is made by a native person. Full of information, attractive scenery which a bus would never have reached. At the end of the exciting trip, however, the camera was missing and only with the help of Sue Bennett it was found and sent back to us in Germany. Perfect service in all aspects. Thank you !

“The perfect tour guide, the perfect tour”
Reviewed 24 November 2013

We only had time for a quick one hour tour of the island, but Russell Smith, our excellent and knowledgeable tour guide, packed a lot of sights and even more information into our tour. He picked us up at our convenience and imparted us with tremendous knowledge since he comes from a family with many generations on the island. He has also been active in local politics even representing the island in the MA state house so he was also able to share those unique insights. You will not go wrong in booking with this excursion!
Sue, the owner, runs a very honest and reputable company. We discovered on leaving that we had left a valuable Kindle on board the bus, but she located it and graciously offered to send it to us as we had left the island. People who run businesses like this deserve to be patronized! Use them for your tours of Martha's Vineyard.

“An excellent tour, wealth of information.”
Reviewed 2 November 2013

Our experience with Martha's Vineyard Private Tours and Excursions was excellent. This pleasant experience was due in most part to our tour guide, Russell Smith - a many generation islander. We were met at the WH-MV ferry by Russell and a clean, roomy, multi-passenger van. While on the tour, Russell provided us with a wealth of information about the island: its history, the people, the geology and traditions as only a local can impart. Even though the tour had a laid out plan, Russell included extra things that we were interested in seeing. We liked the visit and the history about Martha's Vineyard Camp Meeting Assoc. gingerbread houses and the meeting pavilion. The hours went by too quickly, but we were presented with a tour that we all enjoyed.
I would highly recommend this tour for anyone visiting Martha's Vineyard, for its friendly guide and the sights we saw.
