See Rhode Island In Style With A Local Guide

Leave the heavy lifting to the pros when you visit Rhode Island and hire a local tour company.

Guides in the Ocean State can give you an insider’s perspective and locals-only access. Try the Rhode Island Brew Bus for a chauffeured tour of the state’s breweries. Rhode Island Bay Cruises and the Providence River Boat Company take you along the Providence River. Sakonnet Charters can get you on the water in style, while Trolley Tours in downtown Providence lets you see the city from a unique perspective.

Speaking of a unique perspective, in Providence you can also take a ghost tour of the city’s haunted spots, a tour by gondola along the scenic waterfront, or a culinary tour to sample local Italian specialties. Near Wickford you can hop on the fast ferry to Martha’s Vineyard or take a Rhode Island Bay Cruise through Newport Harbor, by Fort Adams, and past Hammersmith Farm. Newport is home to the popular Rhode Island Red Food Tours, Historic Tours of Newport, and a number of guides who offer tours using yachts, tall ship sail boats, and historic launches. Prefer the view from above? Sign on for a one-hour ride with Newport Helicopter Tours.
