The tour guide was great and we really enjoyed our time. We would definitely come back some time for another tour.

I wished we would have taken this tour as soon as we got into town. The overview of Providence was very helpful, particularly in deciding where to go back to for spending extended time. The explanations/descriptions/reviews of restaurants was very helpful.

We loved this tour. Ted was awesome! Tour was so informative and such a great way to see Providence. Especially when we only had one day there! We had our two year old with us and it was no problem. It was about an hour and a half tour. You drive around but also get out at a few stops.

Ted, who emphatically referred to what we were doing as a TED Talk, took us on a tour throughout our nation's smallest state. As a history teacher, Ted's tour was very informative regarding the place RI has within American history as well as its industry and natural beauty. Over the course of several hours, we visited Roger WIlliams Park and his memorial and learned of his place in ensuring religious liberty in American politics. We visited Point Judith which overlooked Block Island, and even visited the marsh where the Gaspee burned. We learned of the Brown Brothers and their role in the slave trade as well as their philanthropy and penance for their participation in it. It was a grand tour of the quaint villages that dot the central valley of the state. We even stopped at a Narragansett fine dining establishment before heading back to Providence. I recommend doing both this tour and the Explore Providence one to get the whole view of the state.

Enjoyed the Discover Providence tour. Guide was engaging and well-informed. We made several stops where you could get out of the van (if you wanted to), but we kept things moving to squeeze in as much as possible during the tour. Really liked going to the Italian section, because I would have likely not discovered that on my own.

I would definitely recommend this tour. I was only in town for a day and it was a very efficient way to see a lot and then afterward see other things on my list and return to areas that caught my interest.
