We rented a coach bus to shuttle our guests from a couple downtown Newport hotels to the wedding venue and back. Kirtley and everyone were so flexible and easy to work with, even a couple days before the wedding! They were all professional, the pick-ups were on time, and everything ran smoothly. Very happy with our experience!

My daughter was just married in September in Newport. Due to the traffic on weekends, we decided to offer trolley service back and forth from the hotel to the church and back. We were worried that the guests would not use it and we would be wasting our money, but most of the guests did use it! Additionally, it was such a great ice-breaker between people before and after the ceremony. Friends and family from both sides met each other on the trolley. It was one of those memorable events of the day that guests still talk about.

We hired two Viking coach buses to transport our guests between their hotel locations and our wedding venue. They were very flexible and let us do pick-up and drop-off from two hotels in Middletown and a third spot in downtown Newport. The buses showed up right on time and were able to pick-up and drop up all of our guests just as we requested. They were easy to work with and executed their service perfectly. The buses were nice and the guests were all really happy to have transportation to and from the wedding. Would definitely recommend Viking to anyone looking for wedding transportation!

From the beginning, Keira was such a pleasure to deal with! Arranging all of the minute details for the day of and always very responsive to email/phone.

The day of, while I found our day to be great from the trolley standpoint, quite a few of the bridal party members commented that our driver was rather rude. One would think he'd be funny and outgoing to lighten the mood but his very cut and dry businessman like attitude showed. He accidentally hit a car's parked driver mirror on his way of bringing the groomsmen to the ceremony (very early on) and that seemed to ruin his day from that point on. We just did our best to ignore the negativity he was showing to others.

I would recommend Viking in the sense that I have to imagine a very popular company like this has to have drivers that are more personable. I too would be ticked if I hit a mirror so I can't get mad at him but just hoped he went a little more out of his way to try and make our day better.

The trolley was one of the things I was so excited about for our wedding. I had been in the trolley for other weddings I have been in so we knew to bring an IPOD dock, but unfortunately we did not have the best experience. I don’t want to steer brides away as our bad experience was not because of the trolley, but because of the trolley driver. Everything on the trolley was great until we got to our final destination. As we were unloading the trolley it was my turn to get off and the trolley the driver was nowhere to be found. Because of this I had to get off the last step by myself, resulting in me tripping on my dress and falling onto the ground. Luckily I put my arms out to help stop my fall, which I think prevented me from seriously getting hurt. Once I got up I lifted up my dress and my whole entire right knee had been cut, getting blood on my dress and putting me in excruciating pain. Of course I would have thought that the driver would have come to my assistance to help me, but he was still nowhere to be found. Before we knew it the trolley was gone. It seemed to us that driver knew he was in the wrong and wanted to make a getaway before someone got really mad at him. After returning back from our honeymoon, I reached out to Viking Tours. I informed Kirtley of the incident and how I was very upset. Kirtley was very apologetic and said she was going to speak with the owners and review our file. The company was able to work something out with us and thanked me for informing them about the incident. Kirtley reassured me that as a company it is policy that the driver is to stay by the trolley until all members of the bridal party are off, especially the bride. The owners plan to review their company polices with the drivers before every single wedding they have. Although it was not a fun experience for me, I would say if you plan to use a trolley through Viking Tours make sure someone is at the door before getting off.

I knew at the beginning of wedding planning that I wanted a trolley and looked into a few of the local companies. Kirtley in the office was very helpful and responsive. They let me go to the garage to check out the trolleys, and when I went on one, I knew they'd be perfect for our wedding party transportation. The trolley was early to all pick up sites and was such a fun way to travel from church to reception. Trolley was clean but had a bit of a leaky AC unit in the front. Driver was very nice. Enjoyed being able to have champagne in trolley. All in all a great experience!

I hired The Wedding Trolley to take the wedding party around Newport to get pictures and then to pick up guests at local hotels. The trolley was beautiful, very professional, and right on time. The only suggestion I have is to install speakers that run music through them, this would make it AMAZING! Thank you!

Great ride for a big group of people and great rates too!! The trolley arrived 30 minutes early to ensure they'd be here on time which I appreciate. The place we were taking our first look photos was sort of hard to get to so I explained to him as we drove and he was very at ease and followed my directions well. He took us to our first look, the ceremony and then brought us to our reception hall and through the pouring rain and verbal directions our ride was smooth and comfortable.

I would absolutely use them again!
