About Martha’s Vineyard Tour Guide

Martha’s Vineyard Tour Guide was created by Jim Rivard when he saw a need for a more affordable way to explore and tour Martha’s Vineyard. His goal is to make the Island accessible to more people, by developing informative, go at your own speed, guided tours that everyone can afford and enjoy.

Jim has lived on the island of Martha’s Vineyard for over 35 years, and has many years of experience in the tourism and service industries.

Jim is an avid reader and history buff. When he is not researching and developing audio tours, or spending time with his kids, you can find him giving guided walking tours of Martha’s Vineyard in person. This is his favorite part of the business, because he really enjoys the in person dynamics of a small group. He is also available as a step on guide or private guide for groups.
