My friend and I went on this tour last night. We have been on many tours in many cities. Our guide seemed to have trouble remembering names and facts. Desperately needs to work on storytelling skills. Saw one couple ditch. Wish we had, too.

I'm a huge lover of history, especially local personal history. This was no leisurely stroll through Newport. This was a brisk walk at short intervals. The tour guide tried to make it authentic with clothing and an unlit lantern. But the story telling was rote,...More

Fun walk through the historic part of Newport. This is a night tour through the city with a tour guide. The tour guide did and excellent job explaining the parts of the attractions we stopped at.

My husband and I signed up for the walking tour on a Thursday night in October. We got lucky in the respect that our group only had 25 people and a group of 5 left early so it was only 20. We didn't have trouble...More

I expected this to be the low-point of my trip to Newport, but it quickly became the highlight! If you are booking, try to take the tour with John Thayer -- he will make sure you are having a terrific night! Will return!
