Fun educational tour for Newport history
Nancy_A, June 2023
Our tour guide, Ray, was very knowledgeable of the area, being a lifelong resident of Newport. We learned many historical facts as well as interesting anecdotes from Ray's life. All of Newport's historical "cottages" are a marvel to see, and the tour of Breakers mansion was truly magnificent. I would highly recommend this tour.
