Thanks to the Newport guide, we saw much more and learned far more than we could have by researching on our own. Easy to use, but sometimes the info began a little before we had reached the point of interest, so it created a bit of confusion a couple of times. Otherwise, we highly recommend this program.

Very good tour, but a blocked road forced us to reroute and miss some of the early landmarks of this tour. Personally, I’d like to hear more details of each house.

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

It was nice to be able to drive around and see all the mansions in Newport, RI
