Took the Newport Viking Tour only and did the houses separately later. Our tour guide Mike was full of knowledge about the history of the town. It took longer than the 90 minutes that was scheduled but you did not feel rushed at all while he did the tour. Well worth it and it helped my wife and I decide... More

I took one of the Newport Viking Tours that leaves the visitors' center. Our tour guide and bus driver was Ann Daly who is a native of Newport. Not only did she speak non stop pointing out some of the beautiful places in Newport, but she also gave colorful insight to days gone by from a very personal perspective, about... More

Great way to see Newport, was exposed to areas I had never seen prior to visiting Newport. The tour guide shared such great knowledge of the area and was not boring in the least. Beautiful way to get a glimpse of the city!

We arrived in Newport on a liner that offered expensive tours so we opted to get ashore and see what was on offer locally. The local information office was most helpful and directed us to this trolley tour about to leave. We had a a wonderful long tour around Newport and Ocean Drive with our driver presenting a clear, informative... More

We took this tour after having been to the mansions and were so lucky to get a driver who had spent 26 years in the area and loved to share his knowledge of both local culture and history. We couldn't have been more impressed with his depth of facts and anecdotes of the buildings, people, commerce, and history of Newport.... More

While in Newport we took a tour with this Company. It simply was well worth the money. If anyone wants to know the history of Newport. The tour driver/guide was extremely knowledgeable about the area. He took lots of time to explain any questions and point out numerous historical locations. Based on his interest and knowledge of the area it... More

This is the BEST value for you dollar on the island…the tour guides/drivers are amazingly well informed. The tour lasts only 1 ½ hours but there is more information jammed into that time than you can imagine! Place for sale? Driver knows the price! What family originally built the home? Known answer! Who lives there now? Known answer! This is... More
