Helicopter Ride & Winery Tour 

4 stars

This experience couldn't have been more fun. The folks that run the helicopter rides couldn't have been more pleasant, helpful and efficient and the ride over Newport was breathtaking! The only small issue we had was that there was extensive renovation going on at the winery so we had a bit of an abbreviated tour, but the wine tasting was very nice.

Helicopter ride was amazing! The ride was really smooth and gorgeous to see the mansions from the air. The winery tour was a nice addition too, only a couple minutes drive from the airstrip. I'd highly recommend this tour!

We were given the xperience gift card as a gift, which is the only reason we even knew about this. Glad we did. We had an incredible time, everyone we delt with was fabulous, and we can check 'helicopter ride' off the bucket list. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone. The wine tasting was like the bonus at the end, they were generous with the selections included and we enjoyed many of the selections. What a great afternoon.

Newport Winery & Mansion Tour 

5 stars

I received this tour as a 30th birthday gift from my husband. I must say it did not disappoint! I wasn't sure at first, as I had never heard of Xperiencedays.com. FANTASTIC is the only word to describe both Xperiencedays.com and the tour itself. The 12 minute helicopter ride was more than enough time and both the sights and pilot were amazing. The wine tour was only 5 mins down the road from the helicopter tour. At first glance it doesn't seem like the vineyard setting. However, once you step through the doors, you are embraced by wine, grape vines, and lots of tasters! Not only were my husband and I able to try 5 wines each, but the tour of the vineyard was fun as well. Great experience and I will definitely be purchasing from Xperiencedays.com from now!

The helicopter tour was nice but very short we barely saw the mansions. The winery was nice, but very crowded. The winery tour really did not feel 'special' at all.

This was a great experience. The helicopter tour was awesome. It was very cool seeing the mansions from the air and then going to walk through them. The Newport Winery tour was fun too. Learned a lot about the process of making wine. Everyone at both the helicopter tour and winery were very nice. Remember to bring a camera!!

Tour Review 

3 stars

Something different with the helicopter ride.. would have liked the ride longer, explain and talk about what you were seeing. Could have talked a little more before the ride as well.. Very impersonal. As for the winery tour/tasting.. nothing different.

Short But Sweet 

4 stars

The tour was wonderful, but everything seemed too short. I was enjoying the helicopter ride and in the blink of an eye it was over. The tour of the winery was lovely but it was also quite short and i would have loved to have walked through more of the vineyard and perhaps had a private tour rather than being in a group of a dozen or more people. All in all though it was a great experience I just wished that it hadn't ended so soon.

We really appreciated our pilot Jeff''s knowledge of the area and the staff's ability to reassure my nerves! he wine tasting was outstanding and just 5 minutes from the arial tour! We loved this so much we plan on purchasing these as Christmas gifts this year for our grown children! What an AWESOME experience!

We had a blast on our Mansion and Winery tour. The helicopter ride was amazing and our pilot was fabulous. He was very informative and had a great personality...we wished the ride was longer. We also had fun learning about the wine making process and tasting the wines. I thought it was a nice touch that they gave us our own wine glass to keep!

Had a great time! 

4 stars

This was truly the best way to see Newport! The helicopter ride was fantastic - it was a smooth ride, the pilot was great, and he took us close enough to see the city, the ocean, and the mansions. Definitely a once-in-a-lifetime experience! The group winery tour was very interesting and a unique opportunity, although their wines weren't anything amazing. Still had a good time getting to see some of the best Newport has to offer. 

- - Boston, Wednesday, June 01, 2011

AMAZING!! 

5 stars

This experience gift was absoutly amazing! I gave the gift to my boyfriend for our anniversary and neither one of us had ever been on a helicopter or a wine tasting before. It was truely a wonderful experience and would recommend it for anyone that's thinking about booking this trip. Words can't even express the thrill it was to see the beautiful mansions and being in the air to see it all. We also got to see seals on the rocks in the ocean. Please try it and you won't be disappointed at all. Our pilot was very informative and very nice. I believe his name was Jeff. He will make it very comfortable and will show u Newport in a whole new way!

Newport Winery 

5 stars

This was an incredible experience. The Pilot was so good you didn't even feel yourself take off and he was so informative. He answered all of our questions. The wine tour was so good. The variety of wines were perfect and the staff was so nice. My only complaint would be that xperience tells you to dress business casual and you don't have to. We felt a little uncomfortable and definitely overdressed for so if you could take that out of your description it would be perfect. This was an amazing experience and if you are on the fence about doing it I would say just do it you will enjoy every minute of it.

RI Aerials is awesome. We had a perfect view of the Newport RI area including the harbor, Naval Base, and mansions. Our pilot Jeff was very smooth and knowledgable making our flight wonderful. Their 3 year old Robinson helicopter is imaculate and obviously maintained to the highest standards. The wine tour that followed was fantastic. Everyone was helpful, friendly and made our experience one of the best we've had. We highly recommend this experience!
