Viking Tours of Newport
Newport's most popular tours
Viking Tours of Newport has been the tour company in the "City by the Sea" ever since I can remember. They've been around for 40 years, which is still longer than I've been alive :)
No matter what your transportation needs, Viking Tours can get you wherever you're going with their various services:
The specialty tours, aboard old-fashioned trolleys and modern motor coaches, take you back in time to the Gilded Age of Newport. There are 3 types of tours:
Tour 2 - Grand Mansion Tour
Tour 3 - Deluxe Newport Tour
Viking Tours can handle groups of all sizes, whether your party is attending a meeting or convention in town or wants to charter a trip to New York, Cape Cod or Boston.
Viking Tours' fleet is ready to handle your group, with its 47-passenger motorcoaches and 24-passenger minicoaches and smaller trolleys.
Viking's 30-passenger red and green trolleys are perfect for small groups and wedding parties to tour the historic "City by the Sea".
If you're visiting Newport in your own motorcoach, Viking Tours offers a number of services, including step-on tour guide service and full itinerary planning.
Newport SamplerThis narrated tour, which lasts about 3 hours, includes the colonial section of Newport, the breathtaking Ten-Mile Ocean Drive, Bellevue Avenue mansion area and a visit to one of the Newport mansions.
The Vanderbilts’ NewportThis narrated tour takes about 4 1/2 hours. You'll see the Ten-Mile Ocean Drive, Bellevue Avenue mansion area and you'll visit 2 Gilded Age mansions:
The Breakers (Cornelius Vanderbilt)
Marble House (William K. Vanderbilt)
Tea with Mrs. AstorThis 4 hour tour also includes the Ten-Mile Ocean Drive and Bellevue Avenue mansion area, plus, you'll stop in for tea with "The" Mrs. Astor at her Beechwood mansion.
***Note: Beechwood mansion was purchased by billionaire Oracle founder Larry Ellison, and it seems that 2010 may be the last summer that tours and events will be conducted here.
The Viking Tours Wedding Trolley is the perfect mode of transportation for your special day or even your rehearsal dinner. The unique and elegant red and green trolley is clean, comfortable and air-conditioned, seating 30 on its old-fashioned wooden benches.
If you'd like to reserve the trolley for your wedding day, I'd advise you to book it as far in advance as possible (10-18 months). Saturdays and holiday weekends in the summer and fall are always the busiest, so plan accordingly!
