Great trip! Michael’s voice was beautiful and he personalized the songs that he sang. And we loved the wine biscuits. Highly recommend on an evening out in Providence but not during Waterfire because it is so peaceful.More

We went on a late Sunday afternoon ride. Quiet but romantic. You have price choices depending on add-ons like a musician. Prices are $89 to $179 for 2 people plus tip.
