The tour was awesome. Our driver, Gene, was a native of Newport and knew everything about the town. The mansions were beautiful.

We loved this tour. The general tour of the city was very good and then we
visited The Breakers and The Elms and loved them both. All arrangements
by the tour company were handled very nicely.

The Breaker Mansion was awesome! Fog along Ocean Drive prevented us from see much. Driver/tour guide was ok. Mansion tour was the best part and worth the price.

We completely enjoyed this trip. It was longer and more comprehensive than we had expected, but very informative and interesting.

Our guide was very knowledgable and friendly. His willingness to share personal stories added much to the stoc background info which was also worthwhile. The Breakers speaks for itself as a completely WOW experience, and the self- guided tour was exactly what we were looking for

The bus tour and walking tours 2 Mansions went well--learned about the people of the past, their thought process and what they wanted in the their lives to be shared by their family and friends. Tour with LIVE people were the best-- the interaction, ability to ask questions, and be challenged was a major draw. Recorded tours are OK- less costly for sure, but may not add to the P and L in the long run.

Wonderful time. Rained every day, but did not care. Mansions were beautiful. Currently re-paving major downtown street. Everybody was extremely friendly.

Good tour of the Newport area and insights into the history behind the mansions. Also took the tour of the Breakers and Elms mansions - both were very informative. Would suggest the addition of the tour behind the scenes at the Elms to see how the servants worked. Tours take a good 2-3 hours each so plan accordingly - we were able to work this over two days since the tour tickets do not expire. Great experience!

The man who drove the van and his helper were very knowledgeable and helpful!! The mansions which we got to see 3 of them were very interesting, we even entered more numbers into audio tour to get more information on different areas of interest.

My fiancee and myself went on this tour and it was excellent ! The van was spotless.The tour guide was excellent and very well informed. The drive along Ocean Drive was beautiful.
We went on to tour The Breakers and Marble House ..it was very beautiful, informative and was so very ostentatious.
Newport is full of history and how much wealth and privilege some acquired at that moment in time.
Will definitely return !

The enjoyed our tour of Ocean Drive Newport RI. The minivan held 10 passengers so we were not in a large, cumbersome group. We visited two mansions individually as part of our tour. The driver dropped us at Breakers and we had tickets for bus transport to the next mansion and back to the port. We had a great tour and a fun day at Newport.

The tour starts at the Visitors Center which was easy to find and had parking. Cost of parking was expensive. Our tour guide Bob provided a wealth of information on the history and people of Newport. I felt that he "knew" the info as opposed to reciting a script. He stopped and let us step off the bus at several spots to get good pictures. He gave us detailed directions on what to do when he let us off at the mansion for the tour and how to get back to town by bus at the end of the tour. He also recommended some places to see and eat. We had a choice of mansions to see. It was a treat to see the architecture and furnishings up close. The tour was done with an audio headphone. In most rooms there were "featured spots" where you cold listen to even more details on the period or people. This allowed you to go at your own pace. You could walk through the garden to the lawn overlooking the ocean. The breeze showed us why these city people enjoyed their summers here. We thoroughly enjoyed this tour which was well worth the money.

This is the standard mansion tour we pre-booked to ensure the tours were not sold out on a beautiful fall weekend with cruise ships in town. The tour covers the Bellevue mansion area only. It allows a visit to one or two mansions depending on your preference. We toured the always fabulous Breakers and the veru unusual Marble House. Tickets are supplied for the return trip to the visitors center.

Tour would have been great, but due to weather related problems, we were forced to cut our tour short because we had to return to our ship earlier than expected. What we did do was excellent, but I am not able to give a comprehensive review.

This was a very good informative tour. The sites were wonderful and the time allotted was just right. The only draw back was our driver who thought he was a comedian. He was very knowledgeable but the jokes got old about half way thru.
