“Must stop here first if seeing Newport”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

friendly and helpful! Saved time buying tickets for Mansions tour!
Only problem was we asked for some seafood restaurant recommendations and the most expensive and kid "unfriendly" one given to us. but they were plenty of others, just check the menus posted before going in!

“Not all was visitor friendly at the Visitors Information Center”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

Inside behind the "circular" counter the personnel were helpful. The gift shop was anything but helpful, approaching rude. Skip that part. Do check advertisers on the interactive screens for special deals. Flori's has a display case and advertises in the center. This shop is wonderful and if you mention seeing the ad at the center you get 15% off of your purchase! (Wish I had seen that beforehand.)

“Helpful staff”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

To be honest, we've been in the visitor center many times through the years and it's got less and less materials, probably due to the influence of the internet. But the people who work there are extremely knowledgeable and helpful in making reservations.

“Your First Port of Call”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

Excellent help and information provided by a number of staff. Never left in a line for very long. If you park in the car park they will stamp your ticket for a free half an hour and if you buy roving tickets on the 'yellow bus' your all day car parking at the visitor centre will cost you just two dollars.
