We were in Newport on a cruise ship on October 1st and wanted to do something that was both fun and showed us some sights.
When we arrived we we're greeted by our guide who was both patient and a great teacher for two people who had not ridden a Segway before.
We spent some time learning the basics and testing our skills on a small course before setting out on the streets of Newport. We did the ocean road tour which really showed off the beautiful coastline, the incredible mansions and that Newport is known for and some spectacular gardens.
Not once during the 2 hour tour did I feel unsafe, I'd even go as far to say that riding a Segway is much easier than riding a bike!
I would whole-heartedly recommend Segway of Newport to anyone who wants to see more than you would on a walking tour, but doesn't want to be stuck on a bus.
Jump on a Segway and get out in the fresh air!
