Yet the city harbors echoes of a dark and turbulent past, including a variety of haunted sites: the Jailhouse Inn, we walk through Newport’s colonial district which dates back to the 1630s. You can reference the historic district or Washington square as a place where we walk. The White Horse Tavern―America’s oldest tavern―and many more.

These tours show a side of Newport that history books alone could never tell and help you peer past the city’s gilded façade to discover dark secrets sure to spook and surprise!

...AND DON'T FORGET TO TAKE SOME HISTORY HOME WITH YOU!

A fun way to see another side of newport.

"Bryan J was fantastic and we had fun learning about the history and ghost stories of Newport!! 2 hours went by quickly and he captivated every moment!! Highly recommended!!! Even captured a mist!"

"Our tour guide Holly was awesome! She started the tour with a story about her background. She showed us her ghost hunting tools. So much fun and will spread the word out to go on her tour. I think Holly has connected to all of the ghosts and they feel comfortable around her."

"One of the best ways to learn the history of and Area is to take a Ghost Tour. Our tour guide John was Extremely informative and Entertaining. Wherever we went the lights would go out, including his lantern."

"Wonderful tour guide who was lively, funny and incorporated a tremendous amount of historical facts into the script. The walk itself is manageable for children (may be tough for strollers but doable)."

"We met inside the Marriott, so you don’t get burnt out by the weather before the evening begins. John was our guide and he is such a masterful storyteller that orb chasing should be left for another evening. Loved the stories, not the weather."

My husband and I went on a ghost tour tonight with Danielle as our guide. Not only was she wonderful, the stories she shared were haunting! This was our first ghost tour ever and I didn't realize how rich Newport is with ghost stories. 10/10 recommend

Terrible. No good stories. Ridiculous temperature gauge. Bad photos. Was not worth $20

Photo of R- D.

This was a good ghost tour. I always want the history and backstory of WHY there is a haunting rather than knowing about someone's experience with a haunting but this was a good combo of both. What I enjoyed most about this tour was our guide Morgan. Every tour limits liability for injury while on walking tours but she actually treated us like the adults we are and explained the "look both ways when crossing the street" in a humorous way. Thank you. I appreciated that she found cover for most of us when it rained for a short period of time. Good story-telling, humor and lots of interesting history about Newport and the town residents.

Wonderful way to spent the evening throughout the historic downtown. Guide was extremely knowledgeable and entertaining. Distance of the walk was a perfect median. It was a great way to spend the early part of the night.

We had a great time. Olivia was so fun and informative. We loved it and would def come back to it again!!

Our tour guide was a polite nice lady but she had no story telling skills. I've been on many tours and this is the saddest one I have been on. I have no idea why you start near long ward because the first stop is streets away. The walk between stops was literal silence, the best tours keep you engaged the entire time. This seemed more like a "take a photo try to catch something" kind of tour, instead of your typical history/scary story tour. We go to a spot and they only told us stories of people "seeing" something and then a photo was passed around. There were no historical stories, literally just stories of people who one time saw something with no back story. This was a disappointment. We left 60 mins in and at that point we probably heard a total of 15 mins story. Don't do it.

Photo of Nikki J.

Such a fun and great experience! We learned a lot about the history of Newport, and the tour guide was very engaging and knowledgeable! Highly recommend.

Photo of Bailey A.

I give a 5 mainly because after the tour ended I decided to stay back and ask a question to the tour guide after everyone left beside my boyfriend at the cemetery. He decided to take random pics separate from where I was talking because he liked the street where the cemetery was located via his photo. Anyhow, the next day I was browsing his photo & legit found a pic of what looks like a ghost.

Ghost top right of pic!

I love ghost tours mainly for the historical and ghostly stories. This was the worst tour I've been on. It was so corny as the tour guide was using a thermometer to find ghosts and showing us pictures from previous tours with orbs. There was a huge lack of interesting and historical ghostly stories. We were actually bored. A couple dipped out about 15 min into the tour. We left after an hour. Providence has a really great ghost tour. I wish we just did that one again!

Photo of Laura H.

This was the worst tour ever. Almost no mention of ghosts and it is sold as a ghost tour. Everything the company says the tour covers is not even addressed. It was a super boring history tour with a boring guide and it was a massive waste of our precious vacation time and money. Don't do it.

It was a very enjoyable walk with Mackenzie. Her cherry personality added charm to evening. May of even found an Orb.

I enjoyed this ghost tour, but I learned more about the history of Newport, then anything about actual ghosts. The guide was enthusiastic and a good speaker, but there were not enough stories about actual ghosts. Scare level is very low, so the tour is fine for children.
