“What the rise of experiential travel reiterates is that travelers want greater flexibility, more choice and a more personalized trip that’s in their control.”

In a Private Tour from Newport Jaguar Tours, you will Reach Destinations and have Experiences that no Trolley or Bus Tour can Provide.

Newport Jaguar Tours will pick you up and demonstrate that your comfort and our experiences are unparalleled as you immerse yourself in a luxurious guided private tour of Newport, and greater Newport County. All tours come with highlighted destinations, and stories unique to Newport, and then can be customized in more specific ways to your liking.

The classic Jaguars carry one to four passengers in private tours…two people tops if you’re in a convertible, with a certain nimbleness required for the person in the rear seat. (Yes, what one will do for the summer sun and the wind in the hair.)  Ask about the availability of multiple cars for larger groups—we connect the cars through Bluetooth so everyone hears the same live guided tour. A gourmet champagne picnic lunch is available on full-day, private tours. A stop at a fabulous seaside restaurant, lobster shack or country inn is another option on a full-day, private tour.

 

Included in all private tours is important, fun information and views of Newport’s famous scenic beauty, architecture and more, as well as experiencing amazing history and stories about its famous and infamous citizens. Let us know where your interests lie and we will customize a tour for you.

Stately Homes, Libraries and Social Clubs are Yours to See

Newport has the largest collection in America of existing Colonial homes, inns, taverns, religious establishments, and other buildings. Some of the finest Victorian architecture in America was created in Newport and these stately homes, libraries and social clubs are yours to see on your private tour, not to mention the magnificent mansions on Ocean Drive and Bellevue Avenue. You will see masterful creations by famed architects and hear about their history as you drive-by, or elect to stop and take tours of the historic places. This is a three-hour tour, morning or afternoon.

Consider adding one of these to your tour:
