Visit Newport’s famous mansions on our private van tour with New England Tours. We’ll begin at The Breakers, the grandest Newport summer “cottage.” The 70-room Vanderbilt estate boasts a two and a half story Great Hall and Morning Room with platinum leaf panels. After a narrated van tour along Ocean Drive, we’ll break for lunch before heading to The Elms, a thoroughly “modern” house so technologically advanced for its time it appeared to work “as if by magic.” Self-guided audio tours at both mansions. Van departs Café Tatte, 70 Charles Street, at 7:45 a.m., and Starbucks, 165 Newbury Street, at 7:55 a.m. BHV members and guests: $110. Guests of BHV members and prospective members: $120. Price all-inclusive; lunch is pay individually.
