Customer Reviews

"I Learned So Much!"

Hugh is an incredible guide and a wealth of knowledge on the history of Nantucket. He knows everything there is to know about the island from the whaling hay days to present. I learned so much and loved every minute! Thanks, Hugh!

"Fun way to see ACK."

This is such a fun way to see ACK. I've been coming to Nantucket with my family for years, but we've never done a tour of the island. Hugh's tour gave me and my family such a great appreciation for Nantucket, beyond just going to the beach. The kids really loved the corn mill.

-Carol A., Montclair, NJ

"Amazing bike tour."

My friends and I did the bike tour while we were in town for a week. We had an amazing time and saw parts of the island I think most people don't get to see. Highly Recommended.
