This was a wonderful comfortable informative trolley tour. The guide shared so much information, it was amazing. He took us all over Newport, past the mansions, along the shore, and through the historic district. It really gave us a great overview of Newport.

This customer is describing our competitor's trolley. Please post your reviews under the correct company. As you can see in the 2nd photo on the top left, our trolleys do not have airline windows. They are late model and do not shake rattle or jostle either. Customers who've taken our tours proclaim how comfortable and luxurious our trolleys are in numerous 5-star reviews.
