Traveller Tips

Make sure to do cliff walk the next day to explore area from the other side.
We thought the trip was too quick, i.e., we know the trolley is on a schedule but to get a good look at Newport maybe extend the tour to give the driver/narrator time to go slower.

Joe_U, Aug 2023
Both of the Mansions were impressive. But what made the Trolley experience outstanding was Ray (our guide) and Steve (driver). The personal experiences they shared about living in and around Newport RI were interesting and added the human touch to our experience. We can't thank them enough for their efforts to inform us while adding their stories that celebrated the changes Newport has experienced over the past 50 years. We did the two Mansion ride and truly appreciated the drop off then pick up from those locations. It's a great way to see Newport without worrying about traffic and parking. Thanks to you all for a great day in Newport RI.

Thank you!!

If you’re not touring on a weekend, ask for Larry. He’s absolutely amazing. Very knowledgeable but more importantly, he loves the job. We received an overview of Newport from the history to the present. Beautiful tour route. I’m sure it was selected to show off the best of the area. We were overwhelmed by the two houses we visited but the area was the star of the tour
I recommend this tour especially with Larry
Nina_W, July 2023

GraceAnn_M, Dec 2022
Our trolley operator (Ray Lynch) was fantastic! So knowledgeable and added many interesting facts and trivia, having grown up in Newport. He was a pleasure to meet.
Response from Host, Dec 2022
Best tour ever.
John_M, Dec 2022
The mansions were beautiful. Our driver was the best. He was a retired teacher who grew up in Newport and still lives there. Learned a lot as he was able to tell us how Newport was when he grew up and all the changes that are now in place. Who owned what and who owns it now. What a great way to learn all that history going back over 100 years ago.
Response from Host, Dec 2022
Thank you!

Response from Host, Dec 2022
Delightful Tour
Michelle_M, Dec 2022
Our tour guide, Ray was a delight. He was full of interesting history and anecdotes. There were detours downtown and he expertly routed us around them and continued to provide gems of knowledge. We visited both Marble House and the Breakers. They are definitely worth seeing if just for the opulence. It was an afternoon well spent.
