Tour was very good. As with most tour guides, it seems sharing personal information is a high priority.

My family and I greatly enjoyed the tour. Ray was awesome! He provided a great historical background with a lot of personal touches, since he grew up in Newport. His ability to speak in such a personal way really made the tour special. Thanks so much!
