Did not like that when we got off to see the Mansion part of our tour we were given a Bus Pass to get back. Not explained very well and the Bus did not come at the time on the Bus Co promised time.

It was difficult to see many of the homes from the vantage point of the van. The roofline kept getting in the way.

Tour guide George was a wealth of knowledge. Very enjoyable tour. We happened to book this during restaurant wk in Newport. Had a wonderful 3 course lunch before hand at Black Pearl. Also toured in March so parking at Visitors Center was free. What a day! Thank you.

From Our Editors

Since 2007, the team behind Historic Tours of Newport has carefully consulted literature and publications documenting Newport’s heritage in its effort to chart engaging and enlightening van tours that propel passengers through more than 365 years of history. Expert guides dispense factoids about Newport’s social, religious, and architectural past on 60- to 90-minute Ten Mile Ocean Drive tours, which whisk visitors past a plentitude of sites including Bellevue Avenue’s 17th-century buildings and mansions, Chateau-sur-Mer’s dainty gardens, and the tree stump where town loon Humphreys McCaw declared himself king. Guests eager to peek inside one of myriad mansions detailed on the tour can opt for a Majestic Mansion tour, which permits escorted entry into one of six elegant manors during Ten Mile Ocean Drive excursions. Patrons purchasing private tours can additionally elect the two-hour Newport Now tour, which explores the city’s contemporary shopping malls, farmers' markets, and secret Redcoat-revivalist meeting places or custom design a tour around whatever sites and they yearn to behold.
