“One of my favorite tours that I've taken....locally and abroad.”
Reviewed September 10, 2013

Twice I have used Newport Tour and Guide when I have had out of town guests visiting, and they wanted to experience the history and culture of my great city. (I've lived in Newport for over 30 years and I actually have learned a lot of the town's history just from taking the tours with my guests). The tours can be customized to your interests whether it is Colonial or Gilded Age history. Also, for those that want to walk part of the Cliff Walk and hear great information and local lore, that can be included too. Sam, the tour guide that I had both times, knows her stuff and the stories she shares will hold everyones attention - never has 2 - 3 hours flown by so quickly. I highly recommend this company - great people, a clean air-conditioned van that will pick you up and bring you back to your lodging, and interesting, fun facts that make Newport so special.

“Great way to get to know Newport”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

Took a custom tour with girlfriends and had a blast. The van was comfortable and our friendly guide Tammy made me feel like a Newport insider instead of a tourist. What a treat! Learned more about Newport than I ever thought I would. If you want to get to know the city and its interesting history and back stories and not feel rushed or crowded, I would definitely recommend this tour.

“What a trip!”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

We have been to Newport many times but never like this!
What fun to be guided by someone who knows the in's and out's of this beautiful city.
Can't wait to go again and take one of the other tour choices.
Thanks Sam for making it so much fun.

Reviewed August 24, 2013

Sami was an excellent, knowledgable guide, who is native to the town. Tammy is bubbly, helpful, and a great driver. These women give a wonderful energetic tour, which can be individualized to meet needs and interests. I recommend this tour with great enthusiasm!

“Fabulous Tour of an enchanting town! Loved it.”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

My husband and I are not the "guided tour" type and would never do crowded trolley/bus type sightseeing. But a good friend highly recommended Newport Tour & Guide to us so we booked a custom tour with them. We were shown a wonderful time by the very knowledgeable guide, a native Newporter who made it interesting and fun. They make as many stops as you like and we got lots of great pictures. I love the architecture and history and my hubby enjoys the seaport stories and boats. The guide did an excellent job of covering all of it and more. The van is comfy and snacks/drinks were provided. A really great experience!
