Bought our tickets through Viator. Received a confirmation email. Printed the tickets. Showed up on our day and there was no 480 Thames St. So, no Segway tour. All of the businesses around there had never seen Segways before???????? I called Boston by Segway and they said all tours were cancelled for the day. I asked why nobody told me???... More

We arrived for our 10am reservation and no one else was there. After a few minutes we called and was told by "management" that all tours were cancelled for the week... More

The helpful people at the Gateway Visitor Center tell us this attraction is no longer running. The phone number still works but it's difficult to hear the voice message. Would love to take a segway tour here in Newport.

My husband and I took the 2 hour Segway tour of Newport. We were the only people that signed up and essentially got a private tour which was great. Our tour guide, Chris, was wonderful. He was energetic, lots of fun and very knowledgeable. We mostly signed up because we wanted to ride a Segway but Chris also imparted some... More

The two hour Segway adventure offered by Newport by Segway provided an excellent overview of Newport, an opportunity to see the outsides and grounds of several of the mansions, and some beautiful scenery. Chris is an excellent guide and provided some good advice on use of the Segway. My wire and I had ridden several times, but this was the... More

My husband and I had a marvelous 2-hour Segway tour of Newport. Chris was a great guide, very knowledgeable about the city and the sights and he did a great job of shepherding our group of about 10 along the streets of Newport.

My husband and I and 2 friends did the 1 hour Segway tour of Newport. It actually was more like 2 hours as Chris took the time to teach our friends how to ride the segway and then took us out for at least an hour. Our friends were a bit nervous at first but Chris had them comfortable and... More

My daughter and I have previous Segway experience allowing us to really enjoy a two hour tour of Newport. Even those without prior experience quickly come up to speed with the initial training and acclimate to driving the Segway. The guide was well informed and paid careful attention to the groups safety and enjoyment of the sights. We covered about... More
