We provide private driving tours of Newport, RI, the most historically intact city in the United States.

Whether you are traveling alone, as a couple, or with thirty-five friends, Newport Tour & Guide offers an experience that is both relaxing and informative, providing a rare insight into this City by the Sea. Our guides are all local, well trained, and have a prodigious knowledge of Newport history. Our private tours include over a dozen opportunities to stop and visit historical sites, not just drive by. Our special license allows us unlimited versatility in both our tours and routes, and we can stop at a moment's notice for photography, culinary delights, rest stops, or shopping, wherever and whenever our clients wish. If there's someplace you want to spend more time, it's your tour, and your choice.

We will never be able to repay her for all the information we learned and the sights we saw. Tammy was so helpful, flexible and took excellent care of our... More

My daughters and I so enjoyed our Newport tour today! It was just perfect! The weather was fabulous and with Pat as our guide and Ed as our driver, we learned and saw so much! Pat is not only very knowledgeable, she made you feel as if she knew those who made history here! Thanks!

Tammy was a step-on tour guide for our Alaska junior high tour group. She joined us at the Rosecliff Mansion and narrated a tour of the Gilded Age homes of Newport, RI. She was delightful and so full of knowledge of the area. I highly recommend her.

We arrived on our ship on a rainy day to find Tammy waiting right there for us with a comfortable Mercedes, water and snacks. She was any amazing guide. She could read our needs immediately and tailored the tour to fit us. One of our group had walking problems and she was sure that he was taken care of. We... More

We learned years ago that a private tour guide is the only way to go when visiting a new place. Tammy is by far the best of them all, and we have had many!!!!! We loved going back in time...I don't think there was a detail missed, and as others have said, Tammy's energy makes it fun and entertaining!!!! We... More

I found Tammy on Tripadvisor and our group of eight ladies could not have been happier with her three hour tour. She picked us up at our inn and was energetic and filled with knowledge of Newport history. We traveled in a comfortable mini-bus and Tammy even had water and snacks for us. The tour included a visit to The... More

My sister surprised my husband and I with a private tour with Tammy this past Monday. We are history buffs therefore when Tammy began the tour with Newport's old historic area, we knew we were going to enjoy her in-depth knowledge and attention to detail😃. While taking her tour, we felt as though she had transported us back in time.... More

This private tour was an exciting way to see Newport! Tammy has a way of personalizing the tour and making it a unique, tailored experience, which I've never had from a tour guide before! Tammy is incredibly knowledgeable and funny, and I couldn't recommend this tour more. Great for locals and out of towners alike—whether to refresh your knowledge or... More
