I was very unhappy with this tour. The trolly was extremely uncomfortable and the guide spoke too fast. I had asked him three times to please slow down but he did not, so the group were not able to understand the tour.
This tour was excellent! So many great sights to see and so much history to learn from our awesome tour guide, Jim. We saw and learned about the town and loved the mansion tours. This is a great way to experience this area!
I thoroughly enjoyed this trolley tour and learned a lot about Newport. Our guide, Rob, grew up in Newport and was very knowledgeable about his hometown. He spoke of the history of the town, the architecture, preservation, trees/plants and the
The tour guide was friendly and informative and I don't intend this to reflect poorly on her. This kind of touring doesn't lend itself to photographic opportunities. That said they only allowed 45 minutes to explore and take photos in the 2 mansions we opted for Marble House and The Breakers. At the Breakers, two bus loads of Chinese tourists arrived at the same time as our trolley, so there were approximately 200 people jostling for position and blocking shots. We found ourselves RUNNING through the mansions hurriedly taking pictures and not really able to fully enjoy the experience. If I had to do it again I would just drive to the mansions and take my time. Lesson learned...
Great tour, our driver was very informative on the town and area history. He also had a lot of interesting stories about the mansions and their early owners. The Breakers and Marble House were magnificent. Would highly recommend this tour.
the tour guide was extremely knowledgeable. We visited two mansions Marble and Breakers and drove thru town to see other landmarks with great stories about each of them. Tour guide took time to stop so we can take pictures. Great time. Highly recommend.
