My husband and I both agree that this cruise was worth the money. The staff were very knowledgeable about everything we passed. Free mimosa but you were asked if you wanted more. Clean boat. Left on time. (Sorry, only pic I have)

What an exciting boat ride! The narration was so exciting, and very interesting with lots of stories. I wold highly recommend it to anyone in Newport. But go really early to get a place to park in a spot or on the street, so you don't have to pay Chicago parking prices in a lot on the wharf!

What a FABULOUS excursion. Words can't begin to describe how impressed we were with Patrick who narrated our tour. His extensive knowledge, delivered with a keen sense of humor, far exceeded our expectations. In addition to learning so much about the history of Newport, the boat was comfortable while the coffee shake was a delicious and surprising bonus. Whether it's your first visit to Newport or your 50th visit, this is truly a must-do activity.
