We charter a tour trolley for a custom tour, the driver/tour guide did a great job. Explaining everything we saw to those on board. The trolley arrived on time, was clean and attractive. Will absolutely use Viking again.

To get an idea of what there is in Newport, this is the best to do so. The driver gives a very interesting and informative commentary. We got to see every point of interest in town and also all the mansions, which are not only visually interesting, but also have an interesting history. Thoroughly recommend the 1.5 hour tour.

Viking offers a trolley tour around Newport. The guide identifies over 100 points of interest on the tour. He really wanted to show us the livestock near Fort Adams. When they couldn't be seen from the road he drove up towards the Fort Adams entrance to give us a view of the goats and llama. He also provided us with... More

A great overview of Newport history and the various sights was provided by Ron. He was informative as well as funny, joking appropriately along the way. Ron also was of great assistance during boarding and disembarking to my mother-in-law who is mobility impaired. For first-time visitors to Newport, this is a good way to start your trip, allowing to better... More

I took the Newport Trolley Tour to see the Newport mansions. The tour guide did not disappoint. The tour guide drives you all over Newport to see some of the landmarks and the oldest summer homes. The trolley then stops at the mansion that you purchased admission for and then picks you up, but not before prepping you for all... More

Our tour guide was very nice and knowledgeable but the in the trolley itself were uncomfortable little benches and windows that did not allow you to see much. It felt very cramped. I cannot recommend this mode of transportation.

This is a great narrated 90 minute trolley ride around Newport. It takes you through the historic district, the shopping district (think Thames St), along Ocean Drive (watch for the Oreo cows), and along Bellevue Ave (where the mansions are). Getting a native's perspective on everything is invaluable if you really want to be more than a tourist. We found... More
