We enjoyed our 4 hour tour with Tammy. The Sprinter van was very comfortable, and Tammy was flexible with our requests for the tour. She is easy going and super knowledgeable about the mansions and Newport in general. Highly recommend.

Good Morning, you would call us at 401 864 0392. You determine the starting time, so calling (or emailing) to see if that date and time is available really works best.
