The Tourist Information Center sold us tickets for the next available tour, the 90 minute tour of “The Best of Newport Trolley Tour” and it provided a great introduction to the different sections of Newport. We were on a clean white trolley that offered a smooth ride and the driver was named Carlos. He was knowledgeable about Newport’s history, pleasant, and informative. We learned a lot. The tour gave us a very good overview and we were then better able to decide which places we wanted to explore further on our own. I highly recommend the 90 minute tour. Some of the passengers initially on our trolley had booked the longer 3 hour tour, which included visiting the Breakers mansion. When we reached the Breakers, the driver give them tickets to enter the Breakers, dropped them off at the entrance gate, and told them he would return to pick them up later at the same spot to resume the trolley tour; he also picked up a group of passengers he had dropped off earlier.

I brought my friends to Newport from the Providence Ferry over the summer again and we took this trolley tour for the 3rd year in a row.

We thought we'd heard it all in 2016, but Russ our guide once again managed to add new tidbits and facts for this year's tour. He's up on all the current events. Great to see they modify the tour every year. They are also on top of what's going on at every restaurant in Newport with menus, specials, and water views.

Looking forward to returning to Newport on the ferry again next summer and we will definitely be taking this tour again in 2018. Hope to get Russ again next year!

We were glad that we chose a trolley tour and had a great driver - Carlos. He provided enough back story about the area and helped us to understand all that we were looking at without too much detail overload. The tour gave us other areas that we wanted to return to see more or again (i.e. ocean drive). We would recommend this tour.

Easy to get on and off at various marked stops. Passes by all the tourist stops. We were soaking wet and so happy to have it come along.

A group of us did a tour of Newport, it was a great day and we had a great narrator. I have lived in RI all my life and been to Newport a number of times but still managed to learn something new. It was a great day.
