Took the tour and it was chilly and rainy. Craig was able to make this tour a very fun and informative tour. Even with a large group (umbrellas and all) we were still able to hear him speak above the traffic. I would highly recommend this tour.

First you listen to a story at Gangster Piano bar. The guys screamed everything he was saying. He need to just talk loudly, we could of heard him. They also should of taken us into a bar or something, instead of just looking at building. I did the Queen City underground Tour and liked it much better.

A very interesting (and entertaining) tour of Newport with the emphasis on it's gangster days. It is a walking tour that fills in a lot of details of just how much was going on 'back in the day'. We were surprised at how much we learned.

The Newport Gangster Tour was a great visit to the past! We enjoyed walking and seeing places that were once part of Newport's colorful history! We had no idea that before Vegas, Newport was the gambling mecca and the place to be! I highly recommend this tour. We did the 5:00 tour and then stopped and had a burger at... More

My husband and I did the gangster tour in the fall 2012 and we really enjoyed it. It was the last tour available for the year and it was a little chilly that time of the year so it would be better to go during warmer months. The guides were great, they were lively and made sure everyone could hear.... More

This was such a fun adventure...full of laughs and quirky history of an era that ended in my parent's generation. Planning on the Underground Cinti Tour this summer...heard it is also great!

Although our group was a little too large the two tour guides did a great job telling stories and playing off each other to make the tour informative and fun.
