The 14 passenger van ride was excruciatingly uncomfortable for 1.5 hours to the ferry. We were packed in, literally, like sardines. If you want to take this tour, make sure the numbers is nor more than 12. It was utterly ridiculous. The tour company definitely does not care

Hi, thanks for your feedback. I wish you would have informed me of your discomfort so I could have assisted in any way possible. So happy despite your lack of approval for this service you still gave us 3 stars. Seems pretty evident by all the other reviews guest seem to really enjoy this day trip AND the smaller vehicles for the intimate experience. Obviously, we have taken the time to ensure our guest get their money’s worth and make the ride as enjoyable as possible. I greatly apologize for making you feel like a ridiculous sardine. Your feedback is acknowledged and appreciated. Tell next time my friend.... Matthew New England Excursions Boston, MA 617-706-5284

The tour guides were knowledgeable and professional. The vehicle the company provided was not large enough for 14 adults. At most there should have been 12 adults in the van. We had 6 large adults in our group and had to ride for an hour and a half with 4 of us squeezed in the

Matt is extremely knowledgeable and gave us a great overview of Martha’s Vineyard on our 75 minute drive from Boston to the ferry. He did a great job of telling us step by step what we needed to do to get on the ferry and what to do afterward. If you are last on the large van

Hello there, Thanks for taking the time to write a nice review. I agree, it can be tight at time, but I do thank you for your patience and understanding. Unfortunately, someone always has to be last. Tim is a great tour guide and a wealth of knowledge. Melia did work work at Nancy's a few summers ago, however it was a short lived career due to her celebrity status lol. I'm glad you liked the food at Nancy's, I am surprised to hear about the service though. They generally offer 5 star service. Please reach out next time you're in town and we'll plan a new excursions. Thanks! Matt New England Excursions 617-706-5284 Boston, MA
