Our tour was great! The driver was very informative and Newport is absolutely beautiful!!! Thanks so much - it was worth every penny!! My thanks to a fine guide.
A lovely tour of Newport and its historic mansions. Our tour guide was outstanding - shared facts and humorous details. A great shore excursion.
Wonderful and informative trip around Newport. Our tour guide was excellent, an extremely knowledgeable and mature gentleman who had a US naval service background. His descriptions and historical knowledge were focused, comprehensive and enlightening to say the least. Probably the best tour we did on our 2 week New England holiday and well worth the money. I would strongly recommend this tour to everyone.
The tour was excellent......our tour guide was very informative. Will definitely use the service again when we are back in Newport for another visit!
90 minutes of information and great history review of Newport, Great driver and the best 90 minutes on any tour we have taken in the lats 25 years!!!
Driver was great, with lots of interesting and amusing stories about the mansions and the people who built and lived in them. Very nice bus tour. Well worth the low cost...go for it!
As first time visitors, this tour afforded us the opportunity to see so much of Newport. Our tour guide, Doug, was very informative about the city and its beautiful sites.
One of the best tours we have ever taken! The tour guide was very knowledgable and friendly! Seeing all those mansions was fantastic, along with the history. We would have loved the tour to be longer. We wouldn't think twice about taking another tour with Viator!
Bob was great! it was all good! One thing I think would be good to add to some trips...Maybe after tour or during allow folks to be dropped off in town of Newport for an hour or so to check out some shops and return to van. Over all though very nice!
Our tourguide was terrific. He spoke clearly and loudly enough for all of us to understand what he was saying. There were many interesting sites where we were allowed to disembark and take pictures or just walk around. I am going to be looking into the lives of the people he discussed during the tour via books, internet and movies.
I forgot our driver's name but he was very familiar with the Newport area. For a 2 hour quick overview, we thought that the tour was very informative and enjoyable length.
Was a very nice and informative tour. Tour guide was pleasant and very knowledgeable about Newport. Took our guests from PA and they were very impressed. Wish we had done the longer one.
This was definitely worth doing but I would recommend a longer tour that included a visit to a mansion and perhaps stopping on the Cliff Walk. I had thought that the driver would stop to give us an opportunity to take photographs or even just to admire the glorious views, especially along Ocean Drive. I wasn't impressed with the driver we had - Mike, as he only made one stop when people were almost throwing themselves out of the mini bus to get a better look and photo of one of the mansions. He pointed out the Cliff Walk, just a few hundred metres away but simply advised that we take buses from the centre of town if we wanted to see it. This was disappointing but the tour is well worth doing as long as expectations are realistic. The tour I took was only 90 minutes so I would recommend taking a longer tour.
Tourguide was great but I thought there would be more real photostops at the houses to take a picture from the outside and not just passing by.
No chance to take pictures...windows in bus have frames that blocked photos...driver was a great tourguide but we got a late start even though we all were there early and just 3 people...never stopped to let us out to take a picture and rushed our tour to be on time for a subsequent charter pickup after us.
Driver was very limited in his knowledge, and very inappropriate at times. It was almost uncomfortable at times listening to him. The last 45 minutes we just wanted to be off the bus, not enjoyable.
Our tour guide literally did not know simple facts and actually told us wrong information we googled two names after. He mumbled in a monotone voice and pulled over to read boring facts or just read the sign like everyone else can?!?!? I wish i did the trolley tour or any other. I wanted my kids to learn about Newport and they were bored. Waste of time and money!
