We were in Boston for 7 days and had 7 different trips. This was the best one by far! The homes are worth the 90 minute drive. Our bus driver took us to see homes we would have never seen on our own
Only got to go inside 2 mansions but they were great. Spent about 70 minutes at each and could have spent have day at both they were so good!
Great day. Our driver was extremely well versed on history and gave us a very fun and interesting day. I would recommend this tour.
Amazing place to visit. The tour guide knows a lot about the history of the place,
Out of our whole time in Boston, this was our favorite tour! It is about an 1.5 hour drive each way, but it is worth it. The mansions are amazing- so elaborate and arguably fancier than Buckingham Palace on the inside. The Marble House was the better of the two, but the Breakers was enjoyable as well. You also get a decent amount of time to walk around the town and grab a bite to eat. It's a very cute town and definitely worth the visit. Highly recommend!
Excellent tour of Newport and the mansions! Unfortunately, it rained 2 inches the day we went! Our bus was old and the air conditioning had to be on the whole time so the driver could see out the window. We were freezing, but the driver got us all back safe!
Wonderful tour! Our guide David was fabulous. So interesting, knowledgable and enthusiastic.
Newport is a beautiful place , and the mansions are like little palaces . Tour guide was excellent , we had a problem with the bus and it was taken care of seamlessly , we were very impressed with the service
This trip was beyond amazing! Our coach driver/guide had so much knowledge it was worth the money. The Mansions take your breath away. Our only negative point is there just was not enough time at the Mansions. We didn't have time to go into the grounds or spend any time in the shop at each house. We don't know how the time at the mansions could be improved upon - there just isn't enough hours in the day. Our only suggestion would be the trip leave Boston earlier! Fabulous day out!
Driver gave a history of the area as we drove past homes. Very informative!
My guide is very knowledgable, he explained us history and interesting facts not only limited to the 2 mansions, but also the towns that we passed by. Newport is beautiful, and hope to visit back there again.
Excellent driver and tour guide who shared great information and stories of the area!
We had a terrific time on this tour. It made us want to go back to Newport for a vacation.
Weather was marvellous and tour was very comprehensive. The driver David was very well informed and knowledgeable. Good recommendation for lunch.
Long day but it was excellent. Newport was so interesting. Thanks
Great day, great city! As Dave, the tour director says, he's never had a bad day in Newport. Dave was very knowledgeable and we had fun. Great mansions from a bygone era.
I didn't know what to expect from Newport - but I was blown away - so much grandeur, history and wealth. I heard stories about Jacqui, JFK, the Rockerfellers and the Vanderbilts. I got to see mansions and I had a lovely lunch by the water. This was the highlight of my trip to Boston. If you have a day in Boston - you must do this tour.
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.
absolutely wonderful, would highly recommend it, especially on a sunny day!
Excellent trip wonderful guide in Mark very knowledgeable and seemed to really enjoy showing us around went out of his way to explain everything to us and nothing was a problem to him. Tell him well done.
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.
