Ok, for extravagance, mixed with natural beauty, this is it! THe homes are from the Great Gatsby with all of the regality and 19th century luxury you could ever imagine. But the cliff walk outdoors is so beautiful it does not seem real. The day we did the walk, there were SURFERs on boards and that was really exciting.
Great audio tour
The narration was clear and interesting. Added a lot to the long walk. The map and GPS location helped us. Used my phone with earbuds, which worked fine. My only minor issue was that the info was repeated at several sites. Would recommend this tour.
Great audio tour
Great self walk tour. Be aware that the walk is 3 miles plus. It is a long walk. You can get off the path at certain points. Interesting points.
Great! Very informative. I enjoyed getting history along the way. Definitely,recommend whilearound Newport! Had lots of interesting information and stories.
We loved this guided tour. It was interesting and informative. We enjoyed getting history along the way as we walked. Worth the money. Good Job
Enjoyed the Cliff Walk with my audio accompaniment. The walk was beautiful on an overcast fall day. The narration was helpful and interesting. Ear buds were the way to go. Totally doable in an afternoon.
