We enjoyed our 4 hour tour with Tammy. The Sprinter van was very comfortable, and Tammy was flexible with our requests for the tour. She is easy going and super knowledgeable about the mansions and Newport in general. Highly recommend.

A well-deserved top rating. Tammy is immensely knowledgeable and enthusiastic. She’s also terrific company. We saw and learned far more with her than we would ever have done alone. She makes the history come alive with verve and humour. We can’t recommend her highly enough....More

Good Morning, you would call us at 401 864 0392. You determine the starting time, so calling (or emailing) to see if that date and time is available really works best.

Good Morning Cathy, Yes we pick up at the cruise ship pier. For 2 people we would use our Mercedes R350. A three hour private driving tour for 2 with admission to the Breakers would be $390.
