A retreat of the rich and famous during the Gilded Age, Newport today is host to historical mansions, museums, and a wealth of waterfront sightseeing—and this two-in-one tour makes exploring simple. Following morning pickup from select Providence hotels, travel via comfortable coach to the city, where you’ll go on a guided driving tour of its highlights. Then, explore the city’s attractions independently, using the bus as a hop-on hop-off service.
  • Discover Newport’s highlights and history, all in just half a day
  • Round-trip transit from central Providence via comfortable coach
  • Learn about the city’s Gilded Age past, and admire its mansions
  • Enjoy time at leisure to explore the sights at your own pace
