No one showed up. No one answered at dispatch. No one responded to online chat. I’m not even sure this is a real company. They did issue a refund however, so that is promising. Total bummer experience and terrible way to start my day trip in Newport.
Private tour fell through without explanation
, May 2022
The driver never showed up and failed to respond to my messages. Given our very short time in Newport and the unlikelihood of visiting again this was a big disappointment.

Terribly disappointed. One hour before our tour I called to find out for sure where the office was so we could drive right to it & the gentleman said he was sorry but he was driving to Milwaukee for family emergency. We had gotten up early & were getting in the car! I would think someone could have called us & told us this. Very disappointed! This was my 1st trip to RI,
Waited and never showed up

They never showed up. When I called they told me they didn't have anyone and would refund me. Refund hasn't shown on my card yet. I only gave one star because you had to pick 1 to 5. I give this company zero stars and would never recommend.
for a great time...

Very fun! He took us on a 40 minute tour of the old city and sprinkled in some history. Enjoyed talking with Justin. Got some great pictures
Fantastic Tour - Relaxing and fun ride!

Our drivers, Dave and Pete, were terrific! They picked us up and dropped us off at The Breakers. They gave our family of four a wonderful private tour of Newport!
A tad late....
, Jul 2021
It was a bit unfortunate we had to wait over 1 hour for our tour. We contacted Justin several times during the wait and was simply told the tour guides were running late. But a whole hour? I was getting a tad upset over the delay. However, once we were able to get going, we were treated with a knowledgeable tour guide who took us through the historic middle class neighborhoods in Newport. We have seen the mansions many times, but we enjoy seeing how the rest of the city has been preserved.
An intimate way to tour Newport

The pedicab was a fun alternative to the trolly tour. It was outside and private which was great during Covid.
