This is part of the public transit system, but a fun car to travel in and you can't beat the price for getting you around Providence's hot spots!

I have been on this tour many times. The driver is a real hoot. Lots of jokes about Rhode Island, lots of great historical facts. Well worth the time and the price is very reasonable.

We definitely got a guide whose script was full of corny jokes and puns but it didn't bother me and I think the other people on the tour were mostly amused. It was a useful tour with some helpful information. It might have been nice...More

The tour guide was this old fart who made offensive jokes and was not the least bit courteous to his passengers. I would recommend everyone to avoid this tour at all costs!
