I had no trouble reaching office staff for reservations. Parking was ample as we went on a Thursday. Boats are not new but are clean. We brought wine and a basket of treats. Would recommend that you take a tablecloth and a trash receptacle. Boat was easy to navigate and we had no problems. Plan to do this again on... More

Bought a 90 minute Groupon for an electric boat for $69. That's a good deal. I read the fine print and fortunately saw that you need to make your reservation 72 hours ahead of time. I did this and we got the boat mid week. Tiffany, who checked us out,was great. The boat was clean and worked just fine. Parking... More

Rented an 8 person electric boat for the 4 of us. What a great time. Used a Groupon, but either way, it would be worth it. Boats go 5 mph max. and we toured the harbor at sunset. This is perfect for a group to split the cost too- and they have boats that seat 12. Boats have canopy and... More

We have been trying to use our Groupon and can never get a reservation before or after the expiration date. The excuse is that all of the Duffys were booked and the Groupon did not cover the larger boats which were always available. However, when we paid the full fare for a smaller boat last weekend, we found it to... More

I found a Group-on for Newport Fun Tour for the electric boat. Being from 2,000 miles away I called to see how things worked... As others have pointed out, it did take calling 4-5 times before getting anyone to answer. Be advised that there isn’t any signage off the main road and passed the address about 3 times before pulling... More

This was my 2nd time with Newport Fun Tours. The first time I had a travelzoo voucher for kayaking and it was mediocre at best. On Saturday, we rented one of their Duffy boats for my birthday. I had booked this reservation 2 months in advance and it took two days because no one ever answers the phone there. My... More

FANTASTIC EXPERIENCE!! Was a little worried after seeing some bad reviews but our group of 7 had a great experience! Bought a Groupon for a segway tour of Balboa Peninsula in Newport Beach. Scheduled our time about 2 days ahead. Arrived on schedule, check in was easy, got a quick training on how to use the segways, and then we... More

I can't think of a Duffy rental experience worse than the one I had over Mothers day weekend with Newport Fun Tours. The rental started off great, I was told by the manager we were being given a "brand new Duffy" that had been delivered that morning. My family and I set out on our 2 hour rental and after... More

Our tour driver, Lou picked us up at our hotel and took us on a scenic drive to the wineries of Temecula. He offered us commentary along the drive and had coupons for special deals at some of the wineries. A great way to spend the day seeing a very different part of the state and tasting very good wines.

We took a Segway tour around Balboa Peninsula and had a great time. It was a fun way to see the Island without having to drive around or spend lots of time walking. We really enjoy Segways as this was our second time on it (1st was San Francisco which was incredible) so we were comfortable on them. Lots of... More
