We enjoyed our 4 hour tour with Tammy. The Sprinter van was very comfortable, and Tammy was flexible with our requests for the tour. She is easy going and super knowledgeable about the mansions and Newport in general. Highly recommend.

Good Morning Cathy, Yes we pick up at the cruise ship pier. For 2 people we would use our Mercedes R350. A three hour private driving tour for 2 with admission to the Breakers would be $390.
