Our tour guide Max was an excellent storyteller, very charming and witty! The tour hit a lot of really cool locations around historic Providence, including much of Brown's and RISD's campuses. Great way to see the HILLS of Providence (wear comfy shoes!).

Our tour guide, Kelly, was amazing. She was funny, informative, interesting and fun. I learned a lot about the history of the area and found the stories captivating. My 10-year old daughter also came - she was okay with it but it wasn't as interesting...More
