Who We Are

Carol Conway

Carol Wilkinson Conway

In 1978 a college friendship and a summer on Martha’s Vineyard Island led me to the tour industry.  I “woke up!” to the incredible beauty around me as I watched tourists arriving by ferry to explore my summer home.

Four decades later, I’m still discovering New England and New York, still being wowed by all there is to see and do.  Our tours include my favorite lobster shack, harbor cruise, small town shopping and the scenic mountain drive that takes my breath away. My desire to explore and share my experiences is the foundation of InnovaTours. 

On weekends I ride my bicycle, training for the Pan Mass Challenge, a 163-mile bicycle ride that raises money for the Dana Farber Cancer Institute. If you told me I’d still be doing this in my 60’s… I would have told you you’re crazy!

My children have grown and flown. I travel to San Diego to visit daughter Ali whenever I can and I thank my lucky stars that son James is still local! My husband Ken and I are downsizing, traveling and blessed with family and friends.

My favorite vacation spot is Provincetown. I love the endless sand dunes, the fresh seafood, the art galleries along the harbor, and the feeling of standing at the edge of the world.

I started working for InnovaTours, Inc. in 1999.  At the time, I had a 6-month-old daughter at home and was looking for something to get me out of the house and keep me busy (ha-ha-ha)!

I am a proud native of New England.  My genuine affection for the area, coupled with my vibrant (also known as loud) personality will help make your trip to New England one to remember.

I work with all hotels, suppliers and step-on-guides booking and overseeing every detail of your tour.

I am married, have two teenage daughters and am an avid New England Sports Fan. You can catch me on any given night watching the Red Sox, Bruins, Celtics or Patriots (sometimes all 4 at once, depending on the time of year).

My favorite vacation spot is Cape Cod. I have been vacationing on the Cape since before I could say it.  You've got to check it out – you will not be disappointed!
