Black Friday in the Twin Cities brings shoppers from all across Minnesota and the Minneapolis and St. Paul metro area to stores to save money shopping for clothing, electronics, home decor, toys for kids, home entertainment, athletic gear, automotive equipment, tools, jewelry and much more. All that shopping requires a lot of travel and professional transportation companies often assist clients with shopping trips around the city.

Minneapolis Transportation for Parties, Events, Tours and More

Posted on October 31, 2017 by Chad

MINNEAPOLIS — RRV is known for its premium transportation and travel packages for events, tours and parties of all kinds. That is because the company has dedicated itself to creating wonderful experiences and has been doing so since the 1990s when it all began. Now the company has a larger than life fleet capable of almost anything.

Some of our loyal customers post about their experiences on our Facebook page, like Samantha S. below:

“Renee’s was above and beyond everything I could have hoped for. I hosted my best friend’s bachelorette party in Minneapolis and rented the 20 passenger limo coach, for 4 hours. Bob was our driver and he made sure we all had a great time! Originally, we had planned to stop at a handful of bars, but decided to just ride around on the bus after it started raining. Bob was up for anything as long as everyone had fun. I highly recommend RRV to anyone looking for a fun, affordable, and clean party bus. Thanks again for a great night!!” …. Samantha S.

Thanks for sharing your experience Samantha! Ed N. ranked RRV with a five-star rating on the official RRV Facebook page after one of his events scheduled with a premium Twin Cities transportation package:

This was a great experience from the moment we requested information through the trolley tour. We (@hocmn) organized a ‘trolley tour’ of affordable properties in Minneapolis for consumers, real estate agents, lenders and other partners. While planning, every question was answered incredibly quickly and our driver was FANTASTIC. Professional, engaging and accommodating. All-in-all this we’re incredibly pleased with the service we received from Renee’s.

RRV is known for the excellent service at weddings, too. Recently, RRV traveled to the Basilica of St. Mary for a wedding. Emile C. rented a silver Hummer for the event:

Just rented Renee’s silver hummer for my wedding that occurred @ The Basilica of St. Mary on 09.09.2017. Mark was punctual and very polite, as well as accommodating when a slight change of plans were made regarding pictures taken @ the Como Zoo Conservatory, rather then the Minneapolis Sculpture Gardens.
I also want to say THANK YOU to the entire staff @ Renee’s that helped make that day a very special one.

Another aspect of the limousine, coach and trolley business is customer service. RRV wants every customer to recommend them so they make sure every experience counts with their passengers, as Misty B. would agree:

My group of 12 used Renee’s for transportation to and from a charity event in Minneapolis, picking up in Chaska. From beginning to end, they were extremely professional and highly focused on customer service. After being dropped off, I left my cell phone in the vehicle and the driver was kind enough to come right back and bring it to me, even though he had a tight schedule and a wedding to get to. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

If you are looking for transportation that is professional and reliable for your next event, check with the staff at RRV.
