As others have reviewed, Tammy is very outgoing and knowledgeable about Newport. She gave us a very informative tour of the city. We got off the ship early and decided to have lunch. She called shortly before our tour started and readily agreed to meet us at the restaurant instead of at the pier as originally planned. Very accommodating.

This was an exceptional tour. Our tour guide Tammy is so out going and energetic, she was great, she’s well versed in the history of Newport relating the history with her special touch. After touring Newport we visited the Breakers and took a self guided audio tour that was simple to use but extremely informational. After the Breakers tour Tammy answered all of questions she made great recommendations for other interesting sites and restaurants. All of her recommendations were spot on. If visiting Newport for the first time or on a return trip I highly recommend Tammy’s tour.

Tammy met our party off the ferry on a beautiful Saturday and gives a wonderful tour of Newport. She takes you through the city historically but not boring and really helps you understand what it was like to live in the city during our "gilded age". Tammy is wonderfully engaging and her tour is a "must see" when you get to Newport. She will not disappoint!

Tammy Fasco and her company, Newport Tour & Guide is a true find and the only way to become acquainted with Newport and appreciate its history as well as what it is today. My family and I booked a three hour tour with Tammy. Most of us are not history buffs, but Tammy made history come alive. She was fun, informative, and flexible. We had been in town for a night by the time we met up with Tammy for our tour. She drove us places on the tour that we had already driven on our own, but with her, it was so much more valuable because of the information she gave us. We also had a toddler with us, whose attention span was short at times. Tammy was fantastic with our daughter! She included her into the tour and made things fun for her as well. Do not go to Newport without booking Tammy’s tour. You will not be sorry!
