With our tours, you will reach destinations that no trolley or bus could access. And the comfort is unparalleled in comparison, not to mention the exclusivity. We will pick you up and deliver you back to your hotel, inn or residence in Newport County and Bristol, R.I. All tours come with introductory destinations, and stories unique to Newport, and then can be customized in more specific ways.
Yes, but lengthy stops only if you request it. Stopping is fun and part of every tour. For example, once your driver knows your goals for the tour, he will be able to give you a good idea of how long you should stop (or what you might miss with too many stops). If you plan to take an extended tour of some place, say a Newport mansion, you might want to consider scheduling that at the conclusion of your Jaguar Tour and purchasing tickets beforehand.
The cars carry one to four passengers on any given guided tour. The car is for you, your family, or your friends only. Of the passengers, you decide who comes along. Exclusivity is one of the cornerstones of this experience.
Tours are a minimum of three hours or a full day in length, depending on variables. Half-day tours begin at 9 a.m. and conclude at noon, or begin at 1 p.m. and conclude at 4 p.m. Full-day tours begin at 9 a.m. and conclude at 4 p.m. with extra time for lunch included.
You can opt for NJT to prepare a gourmet champagne picnic lunch for up to four people only on full-day tours. The cost is $30 a person with a two-person minimum and includes champagne and gourmet foods in a lovely picnic basket complete with real plates, silverware, wine glasses and more, plus a picnic blanket. As another option, on full-day trips we can also take you to a fabulous seaside restaurant for lunch and drinks. Those expenses are yours alone.
Drinking, yes — passengers only — must be 21 or over. Being reasonable is requested (especially on a wine-tasting tour). Smoking, no.
Yes, provided there is room. (If you don’t have a dog and would like to have one come along we can bring Tedward the Bernese Mountain Dog if there is space.) Keep in mind that not all places we stop will accommodate pets.
The classic Jaguars are at least 20 years old. The four-door Jags are what the Brits call a “saloon,” a stylish way to say sedan. Saloons made by Jaguar combine superior comfort with notable design and performance. A Jaguar convertible is available on a select basis for scenic top-down experiences. The ragtop will accommodate one to two passengers. That’s why it is ideal for our Singles Tour, but any of our cars can be provided for this tour.
Yes, subject to availability. We regularly transport large groups in multiple Jags and, in fact, have perfected a way for each car to hear the same live tour guide and ask questions; that way, at the end of the tour, your group will appreciate that you all had the same tour experience.
Unfortunately, no, unless it is the convertible option and one is available. As for the four-door cars, at any one time they are engaged in multiple tours and choosing, say, a particular color, would not be possible logistically.
No, only drivers with tour training and authorization from the company can drive.
Yes, predicated on availability
