So very disappointed.
Jessica_P, May 2023
We waited half an hour and no one ever showed up. We called the dispatch number and kept getting a voicemail. We final called the third party booking company to find out they cancelled the trip. I did not get a cancellation call, text, or email. In fact I keep getting emails and texts asking how the trip was. CANCELED!!!!! That’s how is was.
No go. No fun. Called and texted four times.

Canceled on me only after I drove a hour to do it and it was time for the ride. Didn’t have a driver.
A lot of fun

Justin was a great companion and story teller on our adventure. He was also funny and a great “driver”. Loved the experience of seeing city in this way. Also …surprisingly comfortable seats. My rear end and back were completely stable and pleased. Wear layers though! It gets cool in the evenings.
Awful: Beware, do not use this company, they never showed up

I purchased this tour on Friday for 6:00 p.m. on Saturday, September 10th for two adults. The tour operator never showed up. I tried numerous times getting in touch with someone via the phone number and via the texting option within the app. I have still yet to hear from anyone. Someone needs to contact me soon to get a refund. I definitely do not recommend this company
Did not show up!!!!!!! Pedicab Newport Tour
Pauline_P, Sept 2022
Terrible! Our tour guide never showed up. We waited and tried to contact someone with no luck. We already paid $200 fir the tour. Still trying to get our refund and someone to talk with directly. Very very dissatisfied. We would like a compensation for this .

Raysa_A, Aug 2022
We arrived 30 minutes early and waited 40 minutes they never showed up. Do not appreciate this at all. I jope they refund our money
Awful, very expensive, and would never recommend this to anyone.
Paul_F, Aug 2022
There was no experience, petty cab driver never picked us up, we arrive a half an hour before designated time at the exact spot they told us to meet him at, he never showed up we were charged $300 and they never showed up to take us to the historic Newport mansions, we waited for over an hour for the petty cab driver, and they never showed up!
Excellent choice!
James_P, Aug 2022
The guides were very knowledgeable and welcomed any questions. They did not rush through the tour and spent more time with us than anticipated.
What a treat Pedicab!
Ellen_C, July 2022
“THIS” was so enjoyable. We were a party of 4 and we had 2 delightful, knowledgeable guides! We were picked up at 23 America’s Cup Ave and it was very convenient parking. I would recommend fitting pedicab in your trip to Newport!
Britton_U, July 2022
No one ever showed up. I tried to contact them multiple times and was sent straight to voicemail. This is a scam do not use them.
Donna_E, July 2022
We planned our entire one day trip to Newport around our tour. We waited on a hot corner for an hour and our tour guide never showed. It ruined the whole day. We couldn’t contact anyone from Viator
We waited for pickup and...
Patricia_B, July 2022
We waited for pickup and no one came. Called and was told they needed to reschedule because they had a busy weekend. Unacceptable.
lynette_m, June 2022
No one showed up. No one answered at dispatch. No one responded to online chat. I’m not even sure this is a real company. They did issue a refund however, so that is promising. Total bummer experience and terrible way to start my day trip in Newport.
Private tour fell through without explanation
Catherine_B, May 2022
The driver never showed up and failed to respond to my messages. Given our very short time in Newport and the unlikelihood of visiting again this was a big disappointment.
Judi_G, Apr 2022
Terribly disappointed. One hour before our tour I called to find out for sure where the office was so we could drive right to it & the gentleman said he was sorry but he was driving to Milwaukee for family emergency. We had gotten up early & were getting in the car! I would think someone could have called us & told us this. Very disappointed! This was my 1st trip to RI,
Waited and never showed up
Wendy_D, Feb 2022
They never showed up. When I called they told me they didn't have anyone and would refund me. Refund hasn't shown on my card yet. I only gave one star because you had to pick 1 to 5. I give this company zero stars and would never recommend.
for a great time...
Sandra_J, Sept 2021
