Peter was very knowledgeable and a great tour guide. We really enjoyed our tour and could tell that Peter enjoys sharing everything he knows about Rhode Island.

Worth every cent
Jul 2021 • Couples
If you are looking to understand the long-standing, unique history of this area, be sure to book this tour. Peter is a lifelong resident and supplies many details, while also taking you to less-known areas in the town. All without dealing with traffic or parking, time for both of us to just take in the sights. We finished with a list of places to return to as well as a new appreciation for Rhode Island. He serves the town well. Definitely worth the investment of money and time. Thank you

Disappointed
Oct 2019
On 10/17/19 at approximately 12:30PM our cruise ship captain notified us that our ship would not be able to make port in Newport, RI, because of high seas and gale force winds. Our tour was scheduled for 11AM the next morning on 10/18/19, so my calls to this tour operator were placed at 22 hours prior to the scheduled tour. The weather and the timing were out of my control, and yes, I was slightly less than the 24 hour minimum on the cancellation policy, but I was very disappointed that Native Newporter Tours declined my request for a refund of $110. Considering the weather, I very much doubt that he would have been able to book someone else for a walking tour on that day, and I believe that most tour operators given these circumstances would have refunded my purchase price. In addition, I have called several times, hoping to discuss this with Peter, but he as chosen not to return my phone calls.

Hi The policy, set by TripAdvisor, is common in the trade. I declined another Tour for your Tour and this help prevents revenue loss. I have issued you full credit toward another Tour. It is part of the aspects of (cruise) travel and a chance we both signed off on. Sorry... Best health, Peter

We enjoyed the history and the guide made the tour fun. Very enjoyable. We could have used 15 more minutes at the mansion, but we were able to get back to the bus in time with no visit to the gift shop.

Unprofessional = Disappointing
Jun 2019 • Couples
Lack of communication despite several days trying to book a tour via phone and text was a precursor to the ultimate shun when Peter failed to appear at 8:50 where he told us to be. Heavy rains and cold conditions, according to him, were reason to cancel the tour. Of course he never bothered to contact us and when I called him he said he didn't have me scheduled!
Maybe he had a bad week, but we booked this tour based upon the many five star ratings and needless to say we're extremely disappointed. My only choice was one star... it would have been a Black Hole if I had the option.

So sorry and remember you agreed to cancel too. Unfortunately you only had the one day to tour as well. Remember, our Groupons never expire... Best health!

Nice private tour
May 2019 • Couples
We really enjoyed this overview of Newport. As a native to Newport, Peter really knows the city and it's history. He was flexible and accommodating, stopping wherever we asked, offering up bits of history and culture at every point of interest (and some pretty obscure spots too!) His vehicle was clean and comfortable and he is also a good safe driver.

Great Private Tour
Apr 2019
What a great tour of Newport! Tour began with Peter picking me up at my hotel, Gurney's Resort. Peter is a Newport native and is so knowledgeable about the history and culture of the city. He showed me all the best sights and places I would have otherwise missed. There were plenty of photo opportunities. Highly recommend Peter's private tour!

Get Away
Peter was an excellent tour guide. Very knowledgeable about the area. Also very accommodating as we had plans change in the last minute and he was able to get us in for a tour when we asked. Highly recommended to take this tour before you make plans around Newport RI. Peter gave great recommendations for places to visit and eat. Thanks for the Brick Alley Pub tip for the best clam chowder around!!

Overview of Newport, RI
Oct 2018 • Family
This was a 3 hour private tour of Newport, RI with Peter as the Tour Guide. Peter was genial, accommodating and had great personal knowledge of Newport. He pointed out a number of sights that a tourist would miss otherwise and had many stories to share of the area and the current situation as well as history. There was a lot to cover in 3 hours which was not Peter's fault. It was rushed without much time at any one stop but provided a nice overview of the area. If I was going on this tour a second time I would probably pay for a longer tour and go back to a few of the sights we saw on the first trip. Peter gave us a tip to go to the White Horse Tavern, the oldest tavern in America, for lunch. It was not far from where we needed to catch the tender boat back to our cruise ship and lunch was excellent as well as the opportunity to visit such a historic location.
