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

I always like to celebrate the day in which my spouse and I met, so to surprise him I purchased a coupon off Travelzoo for a three hour kayaking tour with sandwich, chips, and water included for each of us. I purchased the coupon on a whim and wasn't able to read the reviews beforehand. When I got the chance... More

So disappointed in this place! We purchased a voucher from TravelZoo that specifically said it was valid, even on holidays and holiday weekends. Unfortunately, even after admitting that they had full availability on both Sunday and Monday, they refused to honor the voucher. They apologized, but said they were sure they could get full price for boats on those days,... More

We bought the travelzoo deal for kayaking. Check their website to make sure you are found to the right place. Parking is underground and the stairs to the second floor to their suite 210 is on the side of them building. The check-in process took 2-5 minute. Getting on the kayak took another 2-5 mins. Then we were off. Rented... More

I had a great experience with NEWPORT FUN TOURS! I purchased a Groupon and I never had any problems with what the business name was. Anyways, it was hard to find at first because their office is located in the back of a white building called "Mariner's Mile." So park where ever you can and walk to the back! Bf... More

Within 2 minutes of instruction in a busy 7/Eleven Parking Lot, I was not told how to dismount, I fell getting off & was extremely lucky not to have injured myself severly. The owner was not concerned about me, seeing me on the ground only asked if "I had insurance" not are you ok or can I get you some... More

All reviews listed on the Internet have the same feed-back. "ONE STAR". Many different addresses listed. Work under two business names. Service, quality, equipment customer service all the same - ONE STAR. WILL NEVER GO BACK TO There Balboa Fun Tours shop. This was the Newport Fun Tours shop previous to opening new shop. Segway equipment older generation stuff. Owner... More
