Newport is a fantastic destination for a day trip.
The opulence and splendor of the mansions are definitely worth seeing.

Our favourite tour of the 4 we did from Boston. This was a really excellent tour with a very ,experienced guide/driver. We saw two fantastic mansions belonging to the Vanderbilts as well as enjoying the waterfront at Newport and seeing the replica of the Mayflower.
We enjoyed it so much that I would do it all again tomorrow if I could.

This trip is a must if you have time in the Boston area to do it. Newport is a beautiful coastal town with typical touristy businesses that do not disappoint. Our driver/guide, Dave, was very knowledgeable about every home on the coastal tour and historical happenings during the Guilded Age of history. We toured the Breakers and The Marble House. We had a 2 hour lunch stop and ate at The Black Pearl, a small restaurant with the best clam chowder and crab cakes! The peak fall foliage and warm temperatures make this tour fabulous! This would also be beautiful to see during the Christmas season.

Very nice day out of Boston. You get to see how the other half lived and stop in a Newport. We had 2.5 hours there but I could have easily spent more time there. Quaint sea side town, many restaurants and plenty of shops to see. Would recommend this tour. Tour includes admission to 2 mansions. Cant take photos though- so be prepared.

The Tour guide was very professional and took the time to go around and find one of the tourist who didnot show up at the specified site .( Was waiting at the site we were dropped.)

This was a wonderful trip! The driver was amazing and very knowledgeable. He showed us so many things and had many interesting little facts to share along the way. The mansions were very interesting to explore. We also had a nice time walking through Newport and having lunch. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone. I might actually go again during the holiday season!

My sister and I will be talking about this trip for a long time. Wonderful time so much to see, we could do it again. The driver was very informative pointing out details along the way, history, and human interests. Just wish the buses were newer, the seats weren't that comfortable and somewhat bumpy. But we enjoyed the trip and would recomend highly. Nice to have someone else do the driving!

I thought that The Newport Mansions Tour was excellent. I would definitely do it again upon my return to Boston as I couldn't get enough of Newport in one day. The Mansions were exquisite and the tour guide was extremely informative both going and returning on our trip. I would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Boston. I give it a 5 star rating!

To have the chance to visit only 2 of the many stately houses in Newport really opened our eyes to the way the elite past wealthy residents of other cities enjoyed their summer vacations. The tour guide was knowledgeable and imparted that information to us. He gave us more than sufficient time to see and experience what was available to view. Add this tour to your itinerary as it was extremely entertaining.
