    Of course the guide on a tour like this makes or breaks it. Our guide was knowledgeable and entertaining and made sure we saw the highlights of Newport. We were a fairly small group of 10-12 and toured in an air-conditioned "trolley."

    Awesome trip! Monday tours are discounted for their anniversary! Our group was from 74 years old to 13 years old and everyone enjoyed the tour guide’s description of historical and current information of the buildings and sites along our route.

    A really enjoyable trip in an old historical trolley bus. Very good value for money. The driver-guide knew all the local gossip and info about what we were passing. Giving many opportunities for a photoshot.

    I thought Viking Tours operated every day but I see they have blacked out the dates you are looking for. We also enjoyed a harbor cruise on Ganset Cruises leaving from Bowen’s Lane

    The bus stops nearby for everyone to stretch and explore. I would think that the bus may do an on/off at Brenton Point.

    You can pay extra and tour the breakers. It will drop you off there and pick you up. Just drive by the Marble house.
