Since it was too cold for the beach and no car we opted for Gail’s tour. Gave us just enough info. Not too much and showed us in comfort around the island. For $30 a head (cash). It was well worth it

Gail truly knows Nantucket in and out. It’s great to hear her local perspective. She’s funny too. This is not a boring historical tour about who settled here and when; it’s a fun modern look at Nantucket today and what life is like on the...More

On a regular day, you may want to grab your bike and take the ride out to the beach towns and lighthouse under your own steam, but on a rainy day, this is a perfect option to still see the island and hear about the...More

This tour with Gail was amazing! It was only supposed to be an hour and 45 minutes and it was almost 2 and a half hours long! Gail has a beautiful van that is spacious and well air conditioned. She picked me up right downtown...More

Gail picked us up at the Visitor's Center on Federal Street. Tour was in a Mercedes Van and lasted one hour and forty-five minutes for $30 per person. She did a nice job of narrating as she had a headset with a microphone.

Gail's tour This tour was recommended by the B& B proprietor -it was advertised as an island tour in a Mercedes van given by a local woman, Gail, who is a 7th generation Nantucket resident- but the tour was very superficial and uninformative. Mostly pointing...More

If you expect to learn about the history of Nantucket on this tour, you're going to give it poor marks. If you've already studied about the island, been to the Whaling Museum, seen the film there and taken one of their walking tours, then Gail's...More

Taking time to tour the island is a good idea. Hearing from a local is always good also. The negative is that I felts as if I was whist driven around not a detailed tour.
