Walking Newport

The town is so picturesque. Lots of interesting history. The guide was knowledgeable but went into too much information. The hour long tour lasted 1 1/2 hours.

A very interesting walk

This was the only walking tour we did but it will encourage me to do others in the future. The narrator was excellent, loads of knowledge and interesting tidbits. The pace was appropriate and we even stayed on longer with him to hear more than had been advertised. Highly recommend this tour.

Terrific History Lesson
October 23, 2018
The guide was extremely knowledgeable about the rich history of Newport. From the English invasion to the French chasing the English out of town (and then leaving themselves), the tour covered a wide breadth of history of this area. She was able to present all this in a way that it wasn't "dry," but interesting.

Newport Walking Tour was interesting but long

Though the sites were very interesting, the guide talked too much and took too long to point out sights.

Newport - So Much History
December 16, 2016
Discover Colonial Newport Walking Tour was a wonderful way to see Newport up close and personal. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable, and we learned a great deal about the quest for religious freedom that served as part of the basis for the founding of our country and for the development of Newport. There are so many well-preserved historic buildings in Newport, and we had access to an original Quaker meeting house. I would recommend this tour to others.

We had visited the mansions on prior trips to Newport, and wanted to see something different. This was a great tour! Our guide was a very knowledgeable and personable volunteer, who had interesting information to give us about what it was like in early Newport. The walk was just the right length, and extremely interesting. We totally enjoyed it!

Guide was extremely knowledgable about the history of Newport. She was able to weave local folklore with historical events. The best way to see and learn about a city is a walking tour.

We were greeted warmly at the historical museum of Newport, and started the historical walking tour with a little background info and history of Newport. Walked a moderate amount, learned a ton about the town of Newport. We had a truly well informed, interested and animated guide. Couldn't have been better.
