Three times a day––9 a.m., noon, and 2:30 p.m.––the expert guides at Naples Segway Tours usher guests aged 14 and older on an award-winning looped excursion through the historic city. After a brief training session that orients visitors on manning their Segway i2 Generation II machines, tours commence by first heading south past Olde Naples Seaport and Landing Park. Later, the jaunt heads west toward Naples Pier before trekking north to highlights such as Rogers Park, St. Ann Church, and the tree house that the Naples Family Robinson once called home. The tour concludes with an eastward journey around Cambier Park and the city's Bayfront.
Naples Trolley Tours
Vintage trolleys typically don't come with a "pause" button. But at Naples Trolley Tours, they don't have to—passengers can stop and start their trip at any of 21 designated stops. That's because the tour runs all day, completing a coastal route that wends past more than 100 sights and landmarks. Throughout, guides accompany each point of interest, from the 5th Street Beach to the Philharmonic and Naples Museum of Art, with lighthearted narration, leaving plenty of room for questions and for people to disembark.
Off the trolley, patrons browse the Waterside Shops or Ooh Lala Jewels Du Jour, eat at restaurants such as Bayside Seafood Grill & Bar, or tan at LaPlaya Beach Resort until they can successfully hide in a pile of pennies. When they're all set, they can reboard the tour—and continue the narration—where they left off.
