What people are saying about Newport, Rhode Island

It took a while to connect my phone to rental car. Also, it was not clear from instructions that tour talk would begin wherever car was. Once we got started it was great. The older the guest, maybe less tech savvy but we eventually figured it out.

Great tour at your own pace. First time in Rhode Island and to try this kind of tour and we enjoyed the whole trip. Recommended if you got your car and spend the tour with the whole family or group of friends.

Great resource. Download it in a good wi-fi area before you head out. Make sure to adhere to the speed, otherwise you will miss good info. Recommend it.

Great day one activity to get the lay of the land. Thank you!
