We recently used the services provided by this company for transportation to Providence airport and then back from Boston airport. Planning went smooth and so did the trips. The have a comfortable van and a friendly and punctual driver. Multiple personalized pick-up / drop-off locations were a big plus for our group. I will use in the future.

Recently a group of ten of us made a day trip to New York City with transportation provided by Historic Tours of Newport. They worked with us every step of the way in planning the trip. The van was comfortable, the fare very reasonable, and the driver professional, courteous, and friendly. I will use Historic Tours of Newport in the future. They are second to none!

We really enjoyed this. Also, a shout out to Kelly, our driver. She was entertaining and knowledgeable on all things Newport. After the tour, we opted to go see Marble House Mansion and it was unbelievable!

We had limited time in a recent trip to Newport. We had booked a 2 hour tour and the van was very conveniently located at the Visitor's Center. We had a delightful driver that told many stories about the families who originally settled here and all the mansions. We did not have time to go to any of the mansions and would do that next time.

This tour is recommended for those who want to know the history of Newport and get a handle on the logistics of the town. Our guide was extremely knowledgable and a pleasure. The transportation, in a van, was not the most comfortable but it worked. The traffic can get crazy in Newport, so this is a good alternative to driving around and exploring on your own.
