Our guide was very interesting and informative. We learned some interesting history about a place we love to visit. I probably wouldn't have thought to do this without being prompted by the Groupon. We plan to do the Gilded Age Tour - wonder if they'll be another Groupon :)

I wish the tour, Golden to Gilded, has focused more on historic events of the time and less on the architecture of the areas we visited.

About Newport History Tours

When the Newport Historical Society and the Newport Restoration Foundation joined forces, the result was Newport History Tours. Founded to celebrate the region’s rich and vibrant history, Newport History Tours designed more than a dozen tours that explore the city’s landmarks, historic sites, and more than 300 pre-Revolutionary War–era buildings. The tours touch on just about every aspect of the city’s past, with themes that range from the colonial era and Golden Age to prohibition smuggling, historical criminals, and lantern-lit holiday strolls.
