It was a great idea to take the trolley. The driver gave us so many details about Newport that we would never have known...and it was great to see everything this way. I definitely would recommend taking this when you go to Newport.

On a beautiful spring day, we took the "Best of Newport Plus" tour driven by a very knowledgeable guide named Russ. His commentary was very valuable, and among the best I have heard on any tour. I don't think that he missed telling us about any site of importance that we passed. Russ also had a good sense of humor... More

You must book Newport Travel Tours for any wedding in the New England area. To say they go above and beyond is an understatement. Russ and Carlos made my wedding dreams come true. They were early, were generous enough to stay a bit late when needed, and treated my friends and family like gold. The vehicles are all very clean... More

Our guide was very enthusiastic and informative. He brought the town to life for us! So much information -- almost too much, but not quite. There is so much history in Newport, I had no idea. Many thanks!

I have done this 3 times - I learn something new each time. The first time I took the tour was with my mom who was limited in how much walking she is able to do. It was a great option!
