Our drivers, Dave and Pete, were terrific! They picked us up and dropped us off at The Breakers. They gave our family of four a wonderful private tour of Newport!
A tad late....
Perry_G, Jul 2021
It was a bit unfortunate we had to wait over 1 hour for our tour. We contacted Justin several times during the wait and was simply told the tour guides were running late. But a whole hour? I was getting a tad upset over the delay. However, once we were able to get going, we were treated with a knowledgeable tour guide who took us through the historic middle class neighborhoods in Newport. We have seen the mansions many times, but we enjoy seeing how the rest of the city has been preserved.
An intimate way to tour Newport

Sam, our guide, was fantastic. He had a great handle on Newport, RI history, and we toured through all the places of interest that were on my list. A wonderful way to tour Newport.
