Yaquina Cab Company recently announced that is now offering a fully narrated tour of Newport. The company plans to show off Newport to its visitors, future residents and anyone wishing to know the city a bit better. 

Yaquina Cab Tours is offering two-hour comprehensive tours of the greater Newport area on a daily basis through Labor Day. Tours will be offered in Yaquina Cab’s distinctive new 14-passenger Ford Transit van. Passengers will be given the opportunity to stop at any point in the tour with the option of hiring one of Yaquina Cab Company’s taxicabs for a return to their starting point.

Reservations will be required for anyone wishing to join the tour, which begins from the Newport Performing Arts Center parking lot at the corner of Coast and Olive streets. The two-hour comprehensive tours will run from 10 a.m. to noon every day of the week. Additional tours for different times of the day can be catered for groups of four or more.

Anyone wishing to join a tour should call 541-265-9202 to make their reservation. Tickets will be $20 per person.

The tour will take riders through Newport's five separate districts: Agate Beach, Nye Beach, City Center, Bayfront and South Beach. Riders will discover facts about trails, hikes, bike routes, birding trails, state parks, restaurants, entertaining spots, places for children, museums, specialty shops, disc golf and more. Each tour will take riders off the beaten path to allow them to discover places they might not discover on their own.

For the month of June, complimentary tours will be offered to any member of the Greater Newport Chamber of Commerce, its owners or employees. People must make reservations and provide a company business card as ticket to tour. This will be done on a first come, first served basis.
