Highly recommend this Trolley tour. Dominic was an amazing guide, one of the best we’ve ever had. The Breakers tour was well worth the upgrade. Trolley seats were not so comfy but it’s the same on most Trolleys.

The Viking Trolley Tour was interesting and enjoyable. Ray, our driver/guide, was a native of Newport (and a retired history teacher), and his knowledge and familial asides added to the information we learned while driving through this historic district of Newport. The "trolley" was cool and comfortable, and the timing for the Breakers tour was just right.

We knew planning our trip to Newport that we wanted to tour the mansions. We just assumed we'd drive to one, pay and go in, the day before we discovered this tour and it was 100% the BEST way to do it! We learned so much more about the whole area AND got to tour The Breakers! We loved it! Dominic was fantastic!

7/22/22 - 1:30pm tour
Patricia_H

We toured the summer cottages and the Breakers on Friday, July 22, 2022 at 1:30 pm. There were several major issues with our tour that day. While we were excited to learn the history of Newport, we were unable to hear what the tour the guide was telling us due to the poor sound quality of the speaker system and/or headset problems. This sentiment was shared with the tour guide by other attendees and was not fixed. The air conditioner was barely functional on one of the hottest days of the year and it was quite oppressive. And finally, his driving skills especially around tight corners needs improvement. Overall, our tour experience was very unsatisfactory.

The man who drove the trolley was also the narrator. He was very engaging and actively helped people get on and off the trolley and took group photos. He also had a lot of first-hand knowledge about Newport and that added a personal touch to the narration. We had fun while learning a lot!
