Really fun.

This is a really fun thing to do in Newport. Out on the water, listening to local history, sun, what could be better? Well worth the money.

We stumbled upon this tour by accident. I’m so glad we did, this is probably one of the best guided tours I have been on in a while. Dan, our tour guide, was extremely knowledgeable about Newport and the harbor. He pointed out various yachts, lighthouses and “cottages”. He also has several personal stories to go along with the sights.... More

Great tour with very knowledgeable tour guides. Just a little chilly at the end of the summer so bring a jacket! Kids enjoyed it a lot.

I take a boat tour of Newport Harbor about every 2 years, which is how often I am in Newport, RI. I love being out on the water and each time I go, I learn some new historical facts. This time the guide gave a wonderful talk that included the story of Ida Lewis, the lighthouse keeper. Although the water... More

My fiance and I were spending 3 days in Newport and really wanted to fit everything we could in a short amount of time. We checked out all of the boat tours on the wharf but they were either very pricey, booked or almost 2 hours long. We found Amazing Grace and were glad to find out their tours were... More

19 dollar's each is defenately worth it. An hour full of historic sites and a lot of laughters. Defenately will go back again

Took the 6pm river cruise on a perfect summer night. Upstairs seating was the best. The guide provides educational snipnets about the various boats, islands, mansions, and other sights along the way. It's a great opportunity to just relax, take in the scenery and wonderful ocean breezes. They also serve drinks, alcohol, and snacks on board. Great price for a... More

We went on the sunset cruise. Price was great,$19, but could save $2 off each ticket with a coupon on the map. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and gave a lot of history and trivia about the area. Views were beautiful and was an enjoyable 1-hour cruise.

You do not need to make reservations ahead of time if you go during the weekdays. We were staying nearby and walked to the harbor and took a 4:30 tour. We were not disappointed with the wealth of knowledge that the crew had to tell us about everything that we saw., which was a lot. Great photo taking opportunities. They... More

We took the sunset tour in mid-June and it was brilliant. After a long day touring the Newport Mansions, we actually stumbled across the lady selling tickets (who is as great as others have said!) and made a spur of the moment decision to take the trip. We thought the trip was good value - about $20 dollars for an... More
