I would of given a 5 if not for the helicopter operator he had no personality but, the views were very nice. The wine tasting was very interesting and fun, we enjoyed that very much.
- Donna Grant - Rhode Island, Thursday, October 03, 2013
It was a beautiful day in Newport so the helicoptor tour was great and the wine tasting and tour was very good too. A great day overall.
- Ginny Thompson - Newbury, MA, Wednesday, October 02, 2013

Fabulous experience! It was the best 60th birthday present! Would highly recommend it to anyone!
- John Stempleski - Plymouth, MA, Monday, August 19, 2013
Helicopter ride was AMAZING!!! A little short but still a great ride! Newport Vineyards was nice. We were able to sample 5 wines and we received glasses. The samples were very small. The tour was not great. Overall a pretty fun trip!
- Samantha Dubois - Danielson, CT, Tuesday, July 30, 2013
Awesome best describes it was a really enjoyable day the helicopter flight was excellent!!!
- Richard Smethurst - Milford Ct, Sunday, June 09, 2013
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.
- Susan Chiasson - Westfield, MA, Tuesday, May 21, 2013
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!
- ML - North Andover, MA, Tuesday, April 30, 2013
It was a great experience! Wish The helicopter ride was longer!!
- Stephanie - Chelmsford MA, Tuesday, April 16, 2013
The helicoptor ride was absolutely amazing! Great pilot! Beautiful views!! The winery afterward was wonderful! Definitely worth the money!!!
- Julie - Pepperell, MA, Tuesday, November 06, 2012
Had a great time on this tour. Weather was great! Helicopter ride was amazing, and wished it was longer. The pilot, Jeff was very nice, and informative. First time in a copter for my wife and I. Wine tour was very nice. Informative and intriguing. Great gift that I gave to me and my wife!
- Bob Maxwell - North Attleboro, Ma., Wednesday, October 31, 2012
Awesome trip and beautiful views. Our pilot was wonderful pointing out sight along the way. We loved the tour of the Winery and the tasting was perfect
- Lynn L - Ashford, Wednesday, October 24, 2012
Great way to see Newport.
- Doug & Phyllis Joyce - Newport, Tuesday, October 23, 2012
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.
- Bethany Brousseau - Warwick, RI, Tuesday, October 23, 2012
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!
- Cassandra - Boston, MA, Tuesday, October 23, 2012
Absolutely fantastic and I would highly recommend this to anyone.
- Richard Talbot - Florida, Saturday, October 13, 2012
We enjoyed our helicopter tour. The pilot was very informative and the views were amazing. We also enjoyed the winery tour. Great day. We have already started recommending this tour to friends. Thank you.
- Rick & Marcia Walach - Bradford, RI, Tuesday, October 02, 2012
We had a great time the staff was friendly and helpful. I will be telling my friends and family how much fun we had. Thanks again.
- Frank Wheeler - East Taunton, MA, Thursday, September 27, 2012
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.
- Heather Cosgrove - Newport, Tuesday, September 25, 2012
This Xperience was incredible. We just wish our pilot was a better tour-guide and a little more talkative.
- Melanie Kondor - Middletown RI, Tuesday, September 04, 2012
We really enjoyed our experience in Newport. The people were all very friendly and helpful which was also appreciated.
- Maureen - New Hampshire, Wednesday, August 22, 2012
- David Zoni - Newport Vineyards, Tuesday, July 24, 2012
Enjoy a Helicopter Tour of Newport and wish it were a little longer. The woman at the desk was extremely helpful and the pilot answered all our questions and gave a great tour. GREAT JOB! Winery Tour & Wine Tasting was also good and the wines are great and enjoyed the tasting session which was helpful in making a decision about the wines to buy.
- Tim & Bette Flaherty - Franklin, NH, Sunday, July 08, 2012
Very nice helicopter tour. The views were great. Would like to have spent more time in the sky.
- Rosemarie Carulli - Mansfield, MA, Thursday, June 07, 2012
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our gift from our children. The weather couldn't have been better for the helicopter ride and the pilot was friendly and skilled. The winery tour and tasting was informative and delicious. This was a very nice package.
- Nancy Cordy - Newport, RI, Wednesday, May 23, 2012
The ride was excellent. Our first time in a helicopter. Would do it again. The only thing we would suggest is to narrate a little more about what we were looking at. Thanks, Gary & Joanne Smith
- Gary Smith - Braintree, Ma, Thursday, October 27, 2011
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!!
- Rob - Newport, Tuesday, October 25, 2011
We enjoyed the flight and the tour. It was a beautiful day. Thank You
- Bill McManus - Lincoln, RI, Tuesday, October 25, 2011
Received the package as a Christmas gift from our daughter, my wife & I had an great time - the views above Newport were awesome and the winery tour & tasting was excellent.
- Rich Daniels - Wallingford, CT, Tuesday, October 18, 2011
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.
- Linda Gbbons - Newport, Sunday, October 09, 2011
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.
- Kristen - Boston, MA, Tuesday, October 04, 2011
Had a great time on both the helicopter ride and winery tour. The people at both locations were friendly and happy to serve us. Looking forward to our next 'xperience day'!!
- Eric - Massachusetts, Wednesday, September 14, 2011
I got my boyfriend the winery and mansion tour for Christmas and we just went this weekend on the 3rd of Sept! What an incredible team, set up, location and view! 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!
- Lisa Vaira-Haslock - Ayer, MA, Tuesday, September 06, 2011
Enjoyed both tours however Hurricane Irene interferred. We did the Helicopter tour at the beginning of the week and the winery tour at the end of the week due to loss of power. It was however a good tour.
- Tim - Ma, Sunday, September 04, 2011
We really enjoyed the helicopter tour. Because of the hurricane there was no electricity in Newport so the winery was closed. I'm disappointed that nobody contacted us to reschedule.
- Sherri Foster - Newport, Thursday, September 01, 2011
This was an awesome experience. I would definitly recomend the two together because it was a great day, and great wine at the Newport Winery.
- Jennifer Jacques - Newport, Tuesday, August 30, 2011
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!
- Caroline Arsenault - Middletown RI, Monday, August 22, 2011
We had the time of our life!! The people were so pleasant and made our day so enjoyable.
- Donna Hickey - Vermont, Tuesday, August 09, 2011
We had a great time on the winery and mansion tour, everything was well coordinated and the beautiful weather made it all that better.
- Tom Miller - New York, Tuesday, August 02, 2011
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.
- Lisa - Boston, Wednesday, June 01, 2011
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!
- Danielle - New Haven, CT, Wednesday, April 06, 2011
My wife and I really enjoyed the helicopter ride and winery tour/tasting. The pilot was extreemly competent, knowlegable, and informative. The flight was on time and the ride was smooth. The winery had some excellent wines and the tour was informative.
- Michael Biagioni - North Reading MA, Tuesday, December 14, 2010
Fantastic! The experience was memorable, and the staff and helicopter pilot were helpful and professional. I will recommend them to my friends and family!
- Jeff - Newport, RI, Monday, November 22, 2010
The Helicopter Tour was a highly memorable experience with terrific views of Newport. The staff was great!
- Maureen - Lakeville, Ma., Thursday, November 18, 2010
The helicopter tour was fantastic and the next time I'd take a longer ride! The winery was good but a little crowded, I'd recommend not going on a Saturday.
- Lisa - Newport, Sunday, October 24, 2010
It was fun. I want a helicopter. The staff was great. A good way to see Newport. The wine tour was interesting and it was nice to see the grapes on the vine. Good time.
- Dawn - Connecticut, Wednesday, September 22, 2010
The Helicopter ride was Awesome!!! I would recommend this to all. The Winery Tour was also fun. All in all a terrific Day. Thank You for the experience.
- Geri Leach - Providence, R.I., Tuesday, September 14, 2010
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.
- Guillermo - Newport, RI, Tuesday, August 31, 2010
This was great!!! It was a present for our anniversary and my boyfriend was very happy and excited! Perfect getaway for 2:)))
- Nejla - Boston, Sunday, August 08, 2010
This was even better than we anticipated. The helicoptour tour was incredible. The staff was enthusiastic and welcoming and the flight had breathtaking views of the Mansions as well as the bay and boats. The winery tour was informative and everyone was very friendly, and of course the wines were delicious!
- Kathryn - Boston, MA, Wednesday, July 14, 2010
We had an absolutely fantastic day! The helicopter tour was incredible! And the winery tour was great - definitely tasted some great wines!
- Joe - Shelton, CT, Thursday, June 10, 2010
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!
