It was a beautiful, albeit winding day. It was awesome to see Newport from a different angle. We sat out front of the second level and it was a little hard to hear the narrative but well worth the money.

We had a lot of fun cruising on the water. Staff was friendly, the narrator/tour guild was easy to understand, and the drink was delicious!

Sat on right side of boat , however all sights weee on the left side. Still nice boat ride and Newport RI is. Beautiful place!

Loved the knowledge and fun character of the guide, all other staff very friendly!

Very fun scenic ride! I would highly recommend this cruise!
