A private tour with Boston Tour Hub is always a completely custom itinerary, created just for you and your group! A private tour of the nearby city of Newport, Rhode Island can be from 4 hours – 10 hours, depending on the itinerary. Pick-up and Drop-off locations are the group’s choice. While many visitors to Newport have specific sites they would like to see, many are happy to let our team create a custom itinerary that fits their interests, budget, mobility, and timeline.
No two groups are alike and we will plan a trip tailored to your group’s interests, budget, and needs. Below are some sample itineraries to use as inspiration for your perfect tour:
Every tour starts with a 90 minute to 2 hour drive out of Boston and across the state line to Rhode Island, after picking you up at your hotel or rental. Along the drive, you’ll get to know your guide and hear the history of Rhode Island and the shining gem in the coastal crown of New England: Newport. As you wind through the quintessential New England landscape, you’ll learn about the summer playground for America’s barons of industry during the Gilded Age. Upon arriving you will be greeted with the yacht-filled harbor beautiful mansions. Newport is a destination like none other.
Half-Day Tour: A half-day tour (4-6 hours) allows you to visit all of the Must-See Spots in Newport. You can’t visit Newport without strolling along Bellevue Avenue, home to the most famous “summer cottages” of the rich and famous (think Vanderbilt, Rockefeller and Widener). By far, the most well-known of these is The Breakers – which is spectacular inside and out! If you’d like to stretch your legs a bit more, we’d suggest a walk along the famous 3.5 mile Cliff Walk trail offering beautiful 360-degree views. We could also drive around the edge of Aquidneck Island for views of Jamestown and Narragansett. On this shorter tour, we can also stop at a local cafe or coffee shop for a snack or pick-me-up to take with us as we continue on.
Full-Day Tour: A full-day tour (7-10 hours) gives you the chance to explore all of the Must-See spots of Newport to their fullest and the ability to add on optional activities a la carte. You’ll visit all of the Must-See Spots, as well as having time to explore and take in even more of this idyllic part of New England. Take a tour of The Breakers or any other of the magnificent mansions and marvel at the architecture and opulence of the Gilded Age, stop in at the Inn At Castle Hill on Aquidneck Island to sip a cocktail in adirondack chairs on the rolling green lawns that overlook Jamestown and Narragansett, tour the oldest synagogue in America, or explore Thames Street in downtown Newport – bustling with local shops, boutiques, and galleries. On a full-day tour, we’ll be able to sit down to a full meal (probably lunch) at one of the fantastic local restaurants in the area. If you’re really feeling like going all-in on the Newport fun, we can even arrange a cruise on a schooner around Aquidneck Island! Your Rhode Island wish is our command!
