Really enjoyed the details and explanation of each place we passed. It wouldn’t have been the same drive if we didn’t know the story behind it .

This experience was such a great alternative to a structured Trolley tour. We enjoyed being able to go at our own pace. Start and stop in places that we found interesting and enjoy Newport. The tour has lots of great info, and is so slick …. It uses your GPS to start each particular story and even gives you turn by turn directions. I would 100% recommend this for anyone. Remember to download the app before driving :)

This was a great overview of what to do in Newport, gave us a point of reference for planning specific places to visit. Spent time at Fort Adams along the tour. Take the guided tour, well worth it and very very interesting.

The route was easy to follow and the app was very user-friendly. Just be sure to download it ahead of time. It offered lots of wonderful information with a couple of optional add-ons if you wanted more history on a particular subject or location

This audio was great. We could be in our own car going at our own pace and hearing about each place. It worked well and I would do it again.

Entertaining & great value for money. Saw many things we wouldn’t have if left to our own devices! Took us all round Newport and the fabulous mansions.
