Step by Step

This tour lasts approximately 12 hours and is bound for the island of Martha's Vineyard. Located south of Boston and just off Cape Cod, it is famous for its unspoilt nature, tranquillity and restaurants serving fresh seafood. The tour includes bus and ferry transportation, water bottles, snacks, discounts and an expert guide. The starting point can be either Boston or Falmouth, the port of departure for the boats.

During your day on Martha's Vineyard, you'll have time to explore the island at your leisure. If you wish, you can also purchase a supplement for a bus tour of the island, with on-board commentary. In any case, the main attractions are as follows:

  • Oak Bluffs - A seaside town best known for two things: America's oldest working carousel, the Flying Horses Carousel, and the Gingerbread Cottages, small Victorian-style wooden cottages painted in pastel colours.
  • Aquinnah Cliffs - Scenic cliffs that are home to the Gay Head Light lighthouse. The area is also home to Jackie Kennedy's villa.
  • Edgartown - Now a holiday resort with elegant mansions and charming shops, Edgartown was once the port that saw a number of whaling ships set sail. A short distance away is Chappaquiddick, the island where the movie "Jaws" was filmed.
  • South Beach - Also known as Katama Beach, this is a popular destination for surfers. The beach is noted for its wild beauty.

Getting around the island is very easy, you can choose the optional tour, opt for public buses or even bike rentals. Keep in mind that Martha's Vineyard is a highly sought-after destination, especially in the summer months.

    We enjoyed the cliffs and lighthouses. I wish I had spent more time with them and less time in the cities.
