Great tour of the Island with lots of local history. Ara was very knowledgeable about local lure and was able to point out things that are not part of the published profile of Nantucket.

Great island tour. Called on Ara’s day off at 2:30pm and she came to us right off the ferry and took us on an island tour. Very knowledgeable of history and stopped anytime for us to take photos. Definitely recommend Ara. Karen
