I live in RI for 20 years. As a tour guide operator for 8 yrs in RI, Our goal is to connect people with places. I love Newport, RI. Not just for its Gilded Age Mansions, but also for its rich history and culture. I believe that every destination has a story and I want to tell it. In Newport, I have over three self-guided audio tours that do just that -- share the stories of Newport, RI.

Starting my self-guided tour app in 2013, the app knows where you are and which direction you are heading, and plays audio automatically about the things you are seeing, plus stories and tips, and advice. Simply follow the GPS map & the routing line.

I received the Preservation Society's Laurel Award for Volunteerism for their generosity in creating a state-of-the-art mobile tour app for The Breakers, The Elms, Marble House, and Rosecliff.

Really could not see a lot of the sightings mentioned. They were behind trees or blocked by something. We weren’t able to enter any buildings because we didn’t have tickets. Not worth $24!

Fun to take a tour from the comfort and safety of our car! Great to be able to take it at our own pace. Would definitely take another tour when available.
