What people are saying about Rhode Island

Your tour guide “Tom” was very knowledgeable and so very nice. We were the last couple to arrive that morning and unfortunately didn’t see the confirmation message stating we need masks.Tom was very patient and let my husband run back to our car, even though we were already late, and he was able to get our masks so we could still join the tour. We had a wonderful time on the tour and an awesome time in Newport! Thank you so much!!

Joe, our trolley driver was very informative and entertaining. The tour itself was nice, better with the admission to a mansion. If there is a negative at all, it is not having the option of “hop on, hop off” tour.

We found that the trolley was the best way to see and be learn about the sights. I would Highly recommend taking this way of transportation.
