Very interesting tour which included several stops where we could exit the bus and look around. Lots of fascinating trivia about Rhode Island and Providence that we wouldn't have learned from a book. Two hour tour of the city included all the top spots. I'd use this company again.

Although we did not go on a tour, we booked Experience RI as the shuttles for our wedding. Ted was so friendly and accommodating from day 1. Even after I made a bunch of changes he was always so nice and helpful! I cannot remember both of our driver's names, they were both super friendly and they put up with... More

My wife and I had no idea what to expect of Providence before we decided to drive down from Boston to see the last Waterfire of the year. We found the tour through Tripadvisor and booked it. We had a great time and enjoyed seeing the Federal Hill neighborhood, Brown University, the DownCity neighborhood and hearing about former mayor "Buddy".... More
