It was very educational and easy to understand. I got to do the tour of the mansions but I would like to listen to the tour of the cliff walk now that I’m back in New York just to listen to the history. Will I be able to do that.

I was hesitant at first;however, this was perfect! We did not have any issues with the information as we drove along the path. I was impressed with how intuitive it was. I would definitely recommend this.

I would recommend this for a more detailed and enjoyable drive through by the Newport mansions. Interesting stories and detailed directions. Worth it!
