Wonderful overview of Newport. I highly recommend doing this as an introduction to the area as you get a great overview of the cliff walk, the mansions and ocean drive to decide where you want to go back for an in depth look. The driver/guide provided humorous cometary and made some good restaurant suggestions.

There was much confusion on which bus to go on because there were two different tours booked at the same time. I did ask if we had to wear a mask on the tour and the driver got very defensive. I only asked because it was on their website that it was mandatory. They had not updated their website evidently. But no need to get loud and upset about it. We just want to follow the rules and they were clearly stated on their website.
The tour itself was good. the driver was informative. We got a great overview of the area.
Would recommend BUT don't ask about mask wearing unless you want to be attacked.

Myself and seven other friends took this tour and it was fantastic. It started at 12:30 PM and was supposed to end at two but our driver kept us until 2:30 PM. The information he presented was informative as well as lighthearted. I wish I could remember the gentleman‘s name because I can’t imagine any tour guide being better than he was.

Our experience on this tour was only okay. I'm not sure our driver was very knowledgeable about the area. At one point, to fill the silence he started singling karaoke then asked if anyone else wanted to sing. The driver also held a stick mic while driving (instead of wearing a headset or label mic), so the ride was bumpy since he was driving with one hand. We also had a hard time hearing the driver over the bus' air conditioner (it was a loud air compressor-type unit that buzzed when it was on). We told the driver we were having a hard time hearing him, but he didn't have a fix. Overall, I thought it was fine but I would probably opt for a different tour next time.

This review has us perplexed as all of our drivers are extremely knowledgeable and been with us for a long time. Sorry that you didn’t have a great tour - hopefully we can do better next time you are in town.

Had a great couple hours with Ray riding around Newport in a trolley. Ray was very knowledgeable and had lived in Newport all his life. He was able to share interesting facts and had funny anecdotes to share with the group as well. It was a really good introduction to Newport and is perfect to start your trip, if possible. It gives you a good orientation of the city and the guide also shared some tips on restaurants and such. I had a great time on this tour and would recommend it for couples, families, or solo travelers.

The tour guide was very knowledgeable about the history and people of the area. We saw some beautiful scenery and homes. For those who are going to Newport for the first time, this was a great introduction to different parts of town, so you will know where to go on your own later. I only suggest that those traveling by wheelchair make sure the trolley is accessible before buying your ticket. We had a lovely time and everyone in our group said it was well worth it and just long enough.

My wife and I took the scenic tour, since we had already viewed the mansions (humorously called "cottages"). Our driver was Ann. She was pleasant and knowledgable, as well as being a skillful driver. It was a wonderful experience and allowed us not only to view Ocean Drive at leisure but to learn numerous historic facts about Newport as we rode through the city. I would highly recommend this tour!

The day was perfect but I wasn’t clear about parking (didn’t see the municipal lot).
I thought there would be a limited number but every seat was full.
It was a beautiful day and Joe(?) our driver and guide seemed knowledgeable but we couldn’t understand him.
The windows were down and between his speaking pattern and wind it was impossible.
Nice to have someone drive but I would down load the app next time.

Great tour with knowledgeable guide. Only negative was that the tour started 15 minutes late and ended 30 minutes past planned end time. This can impact lunch reservations and planned itineraries.
