We are a family-owned business started by brothers who grew up in Rhode Island. Together with our team of drivers and guides, we count it an honor to help people enjoy life through exceptional tour and transportation experiences. We carefully craft everything we do to give you the best time possible, from reserving your trip, to the cleanliness and comfort of our vehicles, to the places you go, to the things you discover. When you are looking for a fantastic tour of Rhode Island or surrounding areas, or a great outing with friends, or transportation for a special event, please know that these things are our specialties, and we would love to serve you.
We provide kind, prompt, and safe transportation service for weddings all over the Rhode Island and the surrounding area. Using clean, climate-controlled, and comfortable 25-29-passenger mini coach buses, we love to serve area couples and their guests. We will get your wedding party and guests safely to and from the hotel and your ceremony and reception site. We only charge for the hours that you actually use our service, and not for the hours in between. We would be delighted to serve you!
Typical Price Range: $150 – $250 per hour per bus (Could be less or more depending on the location, number of buses reserved, etc)
This price includes everything except gratuity. While we do not presume gratuity, it is appreciated by your drivers, if you receive good service. Thank you.

Just hire Experience RI already!

Experience RI did an amazing job as transportation for our recent wedding; you’re crazy if you don’t use them! Their price point was fantastic, the entire staff is responsive, eager to help navigate logistics, flexible, and easy going. They got all of us to ceremony, then photo location (which was determined THE DAY OF the wedding due to covid), then to reception and back to our hotel on time and without a hitch. The coach looked brand new. It was super clean and the seats were very comfortable. Hiring them was the best decision we made (besides getting married), and we can’t wait to book a private tour with them next summer!
Experience Rhode Island Tours's reply:Thank you for your review, Erika! We are so glad that we could help with your special day, and we can't wait to see you on a tour next summer! :)

Great for wedding transportation!
I worked with Experience Rhode Island Tours for my micro-wedding in October 2020. The team was incredibly professional, the bus was clean/sanitized and the price was very reasonable. I had a few last minute changes with timing and the team was able to accommodate it without a problem. As I didn't have a wedding planner, it was great to have such a thoughtful team handling the timing/transporting – I didn't have to worry about a thing. I highly recommend Experience Rhode Island Tours and I look forward to working with them again in the future!Sent on 02/17/2021
