We provide private driving tours of Newport, RI, the most historically intact city in the United States.

Whether you are traveling alone, as a couple, or with thirty-five friends, Newport Tour & Guide offers an experience that is both relaxing and informative, providing a rare insight into this City by the Sea. Our guides are all local, well trained, and have a prodigious knowledge of Newport history. Our private tours include over a dozen opportunities to stop and visit historical sites, not just drive by. Our special license allows us unlimited versatility in both our tours and routes, and we can stop at a moment's notice for photography, culinary delights, rest stops, or shopping, wherever and whenever our clients wish. If there's someplace you want to spend more time, it's your tour, and your choice.

My sister surprised my husband and I with a private tour with Tammy this past Monday. We are history buffs therefore when Tammy began the tour with Newport's old historic area, we knew we were going to enjoy her in-depth knowledge and attention to detail😃. While taking her tour, we felt as though she had transported us back in time.... More

This private tour was an exciting way to see Newport! Tammy has a way of personalizing the tour and making it a unique, tailored experience, which I've never had from a tour guide before! Tammy is incredibly knowledgeable and funny, and I couldn't recommend this tour more. Great for locals and out of towners alike—whether to refresh your knowledge or... More

We've found private tours are much better than being on crowded buses, waiting for others to climb on and off, not being able to hear clearly or see everything or have unenthusiastic tour guides...especially when traveling with teens. Tammy who is the owner/operator of Newport Tour and Guide met us at the Visitor's Center -ASKED us what we were interested... More

Tammy was an excellent tour guide for Newport. I went to Newport with six friends for a long weekend. One of the friends arranged for Tammy to give us a tour of Newport and The Breakers for 3 hours. Tammy was friendly, professional, extremely knowledgeable and very reasonable. The price per person included the ticket for The Breakers tour and... More

We were lucky enough to have two great tours with Tammy, from Newport Tour and Guide. Tripadvisor is where I always start when heading on a vacation or getaway. After reading the rave reviews I had to contact the tour company. Right away I knew Tammy was the person I wanted to have as a guide. She is efficient, personable... More

I made arrangements with Tammy for a 3.5 hour private tour for our party of 6. We were traveling on an Oceania Cruise in September 2015 and Newport was our first port. After reading such glowing reviews of Tammy I was disappointed that she was already booked and thus not able to be our Tour Guide. However, she said Pat... More

Is it her charm? Her cheerful personality? Her passion for her city? Her obvious love for her profession? Her knowledge of the history of Newport and the Mansions? Her anecdotes about the gilded age and the owners of those mansions. Just put all of it together and you have the recipe for a great tour guide. Four of us thoroughly... More

Our group of 4 (two couples) booked a private tour with Newport Tour and Guide. I worked with Tammy to setup what we wanted to do as we were wanting to combine some of the tours to see a little bit of everything. Newport was our last stop on our cruise to Canada and New England. Tammy met us as... More

Tammy took my wife, her mother and me on a four hour of Newport. Tammy has an exuberant personality and in addition to her obvious love and knowledge of the town and its history, we praise the special attention she gave to Mom, who was half in and out of her collapsible wheelchair. Tammy is truly one of a kind.
