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.

This tour was one of our favorite parts of our vacation. The whole tour from the indoor presentation to the walking part was outstanding! There was so much interesting information given that we looked up information online when we got home so we wouldn't forget the names, etc. History came alive for my boys and I and everyone had a...

I remember much of what they were talking about but didn't realize it could all be made so interesting. Everyone should take this tour!

I loved this tour! We met at the "Dueling Piano Gangster Bar" next to the Syndicate. During the introduction, we were shown a power point presentation while enjoying a cold beverage in the bar. This really helped set the stage on how things looked in the past. Our guides were hilarious, cracking jokes and falling into the charactors of "Gangsters".... More
