Holiday Lights Tour Minneapolis/St. Paul (Twin Cities)

MINNEAPOLIS — Holiday season is here. And with it the merry spirit of Thanksgiving and Christmas cheer, family togetherness and love all around. Did we mention that we are in the business of love? We like to use that phrase as a slogan because it is the mission that drives our business, to deliver cherished memories with loved ones, families, friends, colleagues and the community. Our Minneapolis transportation service has been providing unique travel options for local consumers and businesses since 1993, including the famous Twin Cities trolleys that you may have seen throughout the cities.

Holidays are festive. Festive times call for festivities. Festivities often involve a lot of people, a lot of planning and a lot of resources, including transportation. Governments, non-profits, businesses, schools and other institutions and community organizations often come together during the holidays to create spectacular events in the Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota metropolitan area. Organizers of these events can count on RRV to provide transportation services and travel coordination for their events.

The trolley service from RRV is one of the most sought after services in our business in the Twin Cities metro area and the RRV fleet has several of the old-timey feeling street cars ready for any type of holiday event, excursion, adventure, tour or function. Holiday lights tours are one of the most popular tours and events requested from our company. We also offer limousines, coaches and limo coaches for the holiday and Christmas lights tours in the Minneapolis area.

Trolleys are super fun because groups can experience the open air atmosphere of the street car that brings about the most fun and intimate moments of exploration and dialogue among close friends, family and colleagues. If you head over to the RRV website, you can take a look at the many different types of street car trolleys available in our Twin Cities fleet of limos, trolleys and coach buses.

Book your group now before it is too late. Availability becomes challenging around this time of year, the closer it gets to the Christmas and New Year holidays. Explore the holiday lights of the Twin Cities or use the trolleys at your organization’s or family’s event in the Minneapolis or St. Paul metro area. Reserve the trolley and consult with our experts to consider what type of coordination might be necessary for your group using the holiday trolley.

Don’t forget to have fun.

Minneapolis/St. Paul — Twin Cities Black Friday deals are some of the most sought after retail extravaganzas there are across the country, especially considering the major retail giants that call Minneapolis and St. Paul home – Target, Best Buy, Mall of America, Gander Mountain, Fleet Farm, etc. These retailers slash prices at their stores, not to mention the other retailers in the area that do not have headquarters in Minnesota such as Wal-Mart, Walgreens,  Home Depot and many others during the holiday season. 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.

RRV can provide limousines for your shopping trip in Minneapolis and St. Paul metro area, including the many suburbs in the area like Burnsville, Bloomington, Richfield, Brooklyn Park, Blaine, White Bear Lake, Apple Valley, Shakopee and many other cities in the metro area. Get a limo to go shopping in the Twin Cities and experience a pleasant experience along the way. Customize your shopping trip to plan a route that makes sense and to get the deals that you are looking for. Are you looking for a Black Friday transportation choice? Consider a company that can provide a wide range of limousine options in the Minneapolis area, including both stretch limo cars and SUV style limos.

If you are traveling with a group to go shopping, consider RRV because the RRV fleet also includes larger coach bus and limo coach style transportation options. These large vehicles accommodate several passengers in a group but with the same type of luxury, comfort, amenities and entertainment options as limos.

Limo coaches are similar but a hybrid between the limousine and the coach style, to give your smaller groups a chance at an excellent shopping adventure throughout the Twin Cities local area. In addition to major retailers in the area like Wal-Mart, Target and Best Buy, there are a ton of locally owned retail businesses in the Twin Cities as well that you can visit in a planned shopping trip through 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.
