Traveller Tips


  • "Make sure to do cliff walk the next day to explore area from the other side." See review
  • "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." See review

Would have loved our day but our driver left us at the first house and drive off without us and 8 others even though we were not late. Waited in the sun for 1/2 hour when another trolley showed up and picked us up. Very disappointed and certainly took away the enjoyment of the day.

Our driver / tour guide is very good. He grew up in RI so he knew the houses and people who owned them; worked as caddy when he was young. We loved to hear stories from local people. This guide is better than the one we had 3 yrs ago in the same trolley tour. Sorry missed his name- starts w R. Irish catholic and was a history & religion teacher.
