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.

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.

We took this tour at the suggestion of our hotel. The van is clean and comfortable. It was easy to hear, even from the back of the van. We don't typically take tours of this sort, so we didn't exactly know what to expect. On...More

We scheduled a tour with Gail for our trip to Nantucket and were not disappointed. Its nice to be driven in a smaller van than a big bus. The A/C worked great on a hot day. Gail is very knowledgeable about her hometown. If you...More

Visiting a place as large and historic as Nantucket can be challenging for a day tripper. Fortunately we heard about Gail's tour from one of the locals and we're really glad we took it. You'll hear about the old history, current events, and a lot...More

My wife says they should have paid us to take this tour. First, we were picked up close (but not at) our hotel. Since we were not at the normal meeting place, we were the last in the bus. This meant four people in the...More
