    Very organized trip. All staff was friendly and courteous throughout the process of the trip. The bus ride was comfortable and we had an excellent, knowledgeable tour guide. Great Experience!

  • 14-Nov-2019

    This was an amazing trip. The beauty of New England is difficult to describe. The tour was perfect size, the drivers were spectacular (the driver that took us to the ferry and the drive on the island(. The history of Cape Cod and the beauty of it all. Recommend to all!

  • 05-Nov-2019

    I really enjoyed the ease of this trip. After you pay for it, all you have to do is show up at the pickup location. The bus driver had muffins and bottled water in the morning, and bags of chips with bottled water on the way back. The driver drops you off at the ferry and explains everything very clearly on what to do and what time to be back at the ferry. The driver also tells you what to do should you have any questions while there or if you miss the ferry on the way back. Call Steve!

    My friend and I decided to be on our own rather than to buy the offered tour of the island. We had no problems filling the free 6 hours. We had a great meal, shopped, and took pictures of the Gingerbread houses. I'd definitely recommend this trip to anyone interested in going to Martha's Vineyard.

  • 01-Nov-2019

    Easy pick up and drop off from our hotel. We had a very friendly and knowledgeable driver in Keith who had to put up with some silly questions from some members of our group and had the patience of a saint.

    We enjoyed Martha’s Vineyard but a lot of the shops were closed for the season so perhaps the tickets should be discounted to reflect this. Anthony gave a good tour of the island although it was a little difficult to hear him at some times over the engine noise.

    I would thoroughly recommend NETs and this tour.

  • 30-Oct-2019

    The trip to Martha's Vineyard was well worth it, we had a fantastic day, our driver Keith was efficient and got us to Falmouth from Boston and return in good time. We travelled in the fall and the sights were amazing with all the beautiful changing colours. The Vineyard is more than beautiful with plenty to see and do on a day trip - Tom our tour guide was fantastic, very entertaining and although most of his stories were highly embellished they were great listening. I would recommend doing the 3hr bus tour once you get on the island as you get to see so much. I do however have one serious complaint that spoilt the end of the trip for us and the rest of the bus tour - Tom left 2 young girls at one of the stops, it was a vantage point for photo's and clearly these girls were photographers, he wouldn't wait, he didn't look for them and at first we thought he was joking when he drove off saying he had left them - we realised by the next stop he had in fact left them and wouldn't return to pick them up even at our request. when we boarded the ferry back the girls had just made it to the Marina by themselves but the boat was already leaving, so they missed the return ferry, the return bus and was now left with a 75mile journey back to Boston, the girls were literally 5mins over time and no one was moaning about this, at the end of the tour we still had a spare 3hrs leisure time, so waiting an extra 10miins wasn't ruining the tour for anyone - We found this to be completely unacceptable and as I said previously spoilt the last leg of the tour.

    Very informative with hotel pickup in Boston, ferry drop-off in Falmouth and pick-up in Oak Grove. Covered highlights of the island with lively commentary. Adequate free time.

  • 28-Oct-2019

    Not worth spending so much money to see the island. It is just an average island, but surrounded by a beautiful sea.

  • 28-Oct-2019

    The drivers/guides did an excellent job. A lot of information, well-prepared, friendly. Especially the ones who drove us from Boston to Martha's Vineyard and back.
    My rating for poor is due to the Optional Island Tour which could be done in a much better way.
    We received a lot of information about the Island and the history, so far so good. But we didn't really visit the Island. It was only a hop on hop off all the time. Just to take pictures for instagram or facebook isn't really what I hoped for. In my opinion it would be necessary to reduce the driving time.
    Was it really necessary to drive on the other side of the island to stay there for 10 minutes to take the one famous picture. This time we could had spent better on other places.
    The driver/guide of the Island Tour should increase his advise about the places of interest on the different spots.

  • 22-Oct-2019

    It was off season so a lot of shops and restaurants are closed. So do not go the middle of October. The tour was over booked. Used an old school bus and a large 12 seat van - very cramped.

  • 16-Oct-2019

    Weather was not great. Journey across to island was ok. But as rain closed in it was clear needed to shorten trip to get back. Bus was misted up and the driver initially grumpy as he felt trip should have cancelled. Notwithstanding Vineyard is beautiful
