Was contacted by owner of tour group that morning to verify I was coming and pickup location. That was great! However, during my ferry ride over, she notified me that our pickup was changed to the other dick on Martha's Vineyard since ferries were being diverted due to wind. My ferry was not diverted which caused me just a few minutes of anxiety as I had never been there before and wasn't sure how to the other place; but before I could figure it out, she called back and said a taxi was on its way and were to meet him! That was going out of her way to help! I very much appreciated this! Taxi driver was great too. Devin the guide was very knowledgeable and personable. Only 5 in our group and he accommodated us very well. Highly recommend Homegrown Tours!

Great tour and information from a local resident who was knowledgeable about the island. Visited 6 communities and a number of lighthouses and beaches. Pleasant small tour bus with about 12 passengers. All in all, a great introduction to the island and communities. The next day we had a rental jeep and knew exactly where to go on the island to further explore beaches and communities. We were able to go thru the campground houses and big community meeting hall.

The gentleman guide that we had was very informative and seemed to actually enjoy what he was doing which made for a very pleasant experience. It was entirely worth it and would recommend it.

Very informative about the history of Martha's Vineyard! Tour guide was extremely knowledgeable about each stop on the tour.

Paul provided excellent service and interesting island facts!
