“Don't miss this experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 March 2014

We have never regretted taking a simple tour whenever we arrive in a new place. It gives us an overview and tells us where we might want to spend our time and we learn something. The tour with Russell exceeded all our expectations. We not only learned about the origins of the surrounding towns, the cottages, the parks, but we learned even about the geology of the shifting rocks and sands. He was entertaining, quick, witty and a beloved integral member of a fascinating community. We took the two hour tour and it was perfect for us since we were only there overnight. On a longer visit we would definitely sign up to see more!

“Highlight of our visit!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 March 2014

We spent several hours on this tour with Russell as our guide. He took the time to show us everything and his knowledge of the island is something you won't find anywhere else. Hands down this is the best tour of the island!

“Everything you'd want to see, the perfect guide”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 March 2014

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”
5 of 5 bubbles 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”
5 of 5 bubbles 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.
