I really liked this tour. Was scheduled for 10:00 am departure and was picked up by Nate, the tour guide. He did a great job driving us around and letting us take in the views of the ocean drive and we even did a snack stop at an old fort. The second half of the tour we were given tickets for a mansion tour and allowed to go to which ever ones we chose. Since I had seen the Breakers the day before, I picked the Marble House and the Rosecliff. Both were great to see. Well done!

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 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 !

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.

The overview and the guide were great. We were left and Breakers- great - but no one ever came to take us to the next mansion- marble house. Again no one came. We had to take public transportation twice. 4.00 extra per person Not a great thing.
