Tour begins and ends at Newport Visitors Bureau. The driver of the trolley style bus gives a non-stop narration of popular sights and history of Newport including many of the famous mansions. You can return on your own to anything of specific interest. Well worth the price.

We've found the best way to see an area is to do a bus, carriage or trolley tour. This one was well worth doing. Our guide was pleasant and knowledgeable. It gave us ample information on what we'd like to go back and see. It amazes me that more people don't take advantage of these tours. You see a vast... More

This tour covers a lot of ground and history of Newport. I really got a sense of how the town is laid out and where I wanted to spend more time. The guide was knowledgable. I appreciated how nicely he asked another rider to stop taking on her phone! Enjoyable activity!

We were in Newport in April and chose the Viking Tour because the vehicle had enclosed windows. Our guide -- forget his name -- was a long time resident and provided a lot of insightful information about the area. Although I've been to Newport several times, it was a great way to get re-familiarize with the town. Our guide provided... More

Open air trolley tour of the main attractions of Newport was just the thing to get oriented in the city. Our guide Carlos was extremely knowledgeable and very personable. He spoke of history, culture and current events and even threw in a bit of gossip.

This is a good way to get an overview of Newport. The trolley car is not the most comfortable but as expected with the trolley. Do book a tour with a visit to one of the mansions or you will be disappointed.

We went on Saturday and our tour guide Ann was AMAZING! Her knowledge of the city, the history, everything made it a great tour. We did the one mansion tour and saw the Marble House which was beautiful - it sounded like the other mansions were amazing as well from what we heard from other people on our trolley. We... More

Really enjoyed our sight seeing tour with this company. We did the Scenic tour with admission to The Breakers mansion. Our driver, Jim was very interesting and informative. We could never have done this and known what we are seeing on our own. The Breakers was amazing, so glad we chose that option!
