Wheeling City Tours, a short walk from the ferry and train, explores New London's streets at the speed of Segway. As groups zoom through the city using hands-free radios, the knowledgable guides narrate facts about the town, tales from its history, and tips on some of the best spots to grab a bite or visit. During their one-hour tour, the guides lead groups through downtown to peep Waterfront Park and Fort Trumbull, puttering along the Thames River and Long Island Sound for breath-taking views. To commemorate the journey, guides snap photos throughout and forward them along to tour-goers.
And those who haven't ever ridden a Segway need not fear. Before setting out on a tour, the guides lead a thorough training in Segway maneuvering and safety, and promise that each Segway is gentle and has been properly broken.
