See trip advisor review. The guide left us at the breakers and did not pick us up. We came out at 1:46 and he was already gone. The tour was not enough time as there was a long line at the entrance even with tickets. Disappointed that we paid full price and did not even get transported back to town on the trolley.

Spent 2 days in Rhode Island and this tour provided a glimpse of history in R.I. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and every corner turned provided info on the mansions, colonial homes, celebrity presence, JFK and Jackie, and beauty of the area. The Breakers tour was breathtaking! A part of architechtural history is found here in this summer mansion which is a slice of French architect in the USA. Highly recommended all ages as my 12 and 10 year old daughters also enjoyed this tour. The pretty, old fashioned trolley was covered and air conditioned, seats are wooden, medium comfort.

Good info and nice driver, but difficult to hear. Also did not need the .357 comment. Beautiful tour. Would have liked to do some more stops at the state park or the fort.
