Our tour was a combination Cliff walk and tour of the Breakers. Best most informative memorable tour of the trip. the guide, a retired naval officer shared historical stories about the Newport society and current happenings in Newport. She was enthusiastic and was approachable. Of all our tours her enthusiasm, knowledge and friendliness stands out.

I love all the Vanderbilt houses, and the Breakers is no exception. My only complaint on this stop was the tour operator allowed us too much time here and everyone was back near the bus with about 20 minutes left. When we asked if we could walk to the Marble House, the bus driver got nasty and said if we chose to walk to the next house he wouldn't take us back to the ship. Guess he was having a bad day....

If you enjoy history & architecture, extremely interesting...GREAT audio-tour. Requires a LOT of walking (over an hour), if difficult for you, don't book!

We took the Cliff walk and Breakers combined tour. We saw the mansion after the walk. I'd been here before in the 80s when the tour was given by a person rather than a recording. It's still a nice tour, and a very interesting window on the lifestyles at that time period. My only regret is we did not disembark earlier because the schedule looked like we'd have some time to shop and look around in town after the tour and that was not the case.

Our last stop, Newport RI where we would tender in despite the rain. Yes, it was really really rainy, cold and windy however the tender crews did a fantastic job in getting us to Newport and the ship safely. Here we opted for the Vanderbilt Mansion tour and considering the weather we chose wisely. Our tour guide was great and a fun time was had by all.
