We bought our tickets at the visitors center then caught the bus outside. This is not a hop on hop off tour. It was very informative and lasted around 90 minutes.

Our tour guide grew up in Newport. You could very easily tell, he loved his city. We really enjoyed his enthusiastic overview. I'd strongly suggest this tour for anyone who wants to see the town & celebrate a very historic part of America.

You can purchase your ticket at the visitor's information center, which is where the tour begins. I think it departs every hour, maybe more frequently. It's a 90 minute ride from start to finish, but you can also hop on and... More
