Tour was full of information about Newport history - just what we wanted! PA system not the best, but understood most. Thanks for providing the opportunity.

Tour director was very pleasant and knowledgeable. But we had a lot of difficulty hearing him. We think the problem was the audio system, not him. Other than that, the tour was good.

I loved everything about the tour, except that the guide was hard to understand at times. He showed genuine interest and excitement in the places he was talking about, but spoke very quickly and did not always enunciate. I understand the need to jam as much info in 90 minutes as possible, and to do so one has to talk pretty fast, but it would have been great if he were more clear. Words kind of blended together.
