Take Our Self-Guided Martha’s Vineyard Tour

Pick up your rental car from one of our convenient locations on the island and drive off on the ultimate self-guided tour around Martha’s Vineyard. Local Vineyarders created our island tour. They know the best way to get around the island while avoiding traffic and hitting all the must-see spots. The tour takes about 3.5-4 hours and can start at any one of our rental car pick-up locations.

The length of time the tour takes depends on how much time you spend visiting, shopping, and eating along the route. Some popular stops include downtown Edgartown, Alley’s in West Tisbury, the Chilmark Store, the cliffs at Aquinnah, the harbor in Menemsha, and Main Street in Vineyard Haven. Our tour will take you past historic lighthouses, plenty of beaches, and places to taste fresh seafood. You can let the young or young at heart in your party ride on the Flying Horses, a classic carousel, and you may even spot a celebrity or former president of the United States.
