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 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.

The Perfect Bachelor Party in Minneapolis or St. Paul

Posted on September 18, 2017 by Chad
Bachelor Party

TWIN CITIES – The Minneapolis/St. Paul area has to be the number one destination for bachelor parties in Minnesota. The Twin cities are a hub for sports, culture, and entertainment. The perfect place for a bachelor party. There are different avenues you can take when planning for your last night out as a “free man”. There’s the traditional style booze festivities that involve a cadre of your closest companions and a definitively enforced code of misconduct. Usually this involves your favorite hard liquor or beer; you and your best friends hitting every bar, dance, and gentleman’s club under the night sky. Preferably all this loving mayhem is ushered into its final farewell to debauchery in a suitably stated (under or otherwise) stretch limo that pumps out your favorite tunes in-between hot late night spots. The point of this night is you and your friends, holding onto each other, letting go of inhibitions and just having fun pretending to be the people you thought you wanted to be before you grew up and realized just one more night was probably enough!

You can go that route, sure. The limo will get you where you need to go and the hotel after party will be just as sweet as any bromance flick as the inebriated version of yourselves express undying love and friendship. But, there are other ways!

If you’ve already been there done that or just don’t have the urge you could do some fine tune adulating instead. You and your bros could go to wine tastings and have tapas, peruse a pop up art show, or go to a late showing at the Guthrie Theater. Cognac and cigars vs. Vodka and Red Bull, whatever floats your boat.

Then there’s the sporty style. You can go high adrenalin or low key but this style of bachelor party involves movement, getting the blood pumping a little. Activities will range from golf and skeet shooting to late night drag races and sky diving.

Over the years I’ve been to my fair share of Bachelor parties and my favorites are the ones that incorporate a little bit of everything. A good bachelor party is a lot like a good marriage – it should be both comforting and a little challenging. But mostly it’s a way to spend more time with the people that you love the most. Why not grab that limo and head into wine country for a bit, then hit the golf course, go for a round of paintball, then hit the clubs, hit your stride, and then eventually hit a groomsman for hitting on your ex twelve years ago…it’s your guys’s night!

Whatever you want to do, whatever style you choose, be safe and stylish with a limo from RRV. RRV will not only get you there but also can help you plan the perfect bachelor party. Just call us 763.551.1919 or book online at http://www.reneeslimousines.com/

These and other artists paved the way for the groundswell of talent coming out of the Nordic region today. Many had studied in Paris and returned with new skills and avant-garde ideas that fired a commitment to renew Swedish art.  The exhibition is on loan from the acclaimed Sam and Ann Charters Collection of Swedish Art housed at the Augustana Teaching Museum of Art at Augustana College in Rock Island, Illinois, with support from Julie Hohman.”

Minneapolis Trolleys are Perfect Rides for Twin Cities St. Patrick’s Day Events

Posted on March 15, 2017 by Chad
Minneapolis Trolley Service

Minneapolis Trolleys are Green, Perfect Style for St. Patrick’s Day Events in the Twin Cities.

MINNEAPOLIS/ST. PAUL — It’s that time of the year when green is in fashion and everyone is Irish no matter their ethnic or national origins: St Patrick’s Day is around the corner! Ironically, we have a number of green trolleys, which are an excellent option for safe, reliable, fun and festive transportation for any number of the local =Twin Cities St. Paddy’s Day parades or other events.

The Perfect Party on Wheels

Have you ever seen one of the street cars that travel throughout San Francisco? These old time railway cars are still in use in their city. The old “cable cars” as they were called back in the day, were more like trains and were powered by electric cable. Our version of the classic street car obviously doesn’t run on electric cables (and what for when we have the light rail, right?), but are drive train powered. We have several street car trolleys in our Minneapolis fleet. They make for a great party on wheels at events in the Twin Cities because they provide for such an open yet intimate environment conducive to social activity.

The Perfect Sober Cab Event Transportation

RRV has been providing local residents in the area with safe and reliable transportation for many years, since the early 1990s to be precise. In addition to our limousines, coaches (coach buses) and limo coaches, we also have the retro trolley fleet. We just love pulling these machines out of the garage. They are so fun and interesting. They are well known among locals as well. If you plan on drinking and having a good time for St. Patrick’s Day in the Minneapolis or St. Paul metro area, you should plan to have a designated driver or sober cab. The trolleys are a great way to get from one place to another without driving and risking death, injury and jail time.

Event Organizers and Transportation Coordinators

Are you involved in the event planning or transportation planning process for a local St. Paddy’s Day parade or other type of event in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area? We are an established top rated transportation provider in the Twin Cities with more than two decades of experience. We stress quality, safety and experience. If you are looking for event transportation and need to coordinate the planning of event travel on premises, off premises or to/from premises, please talk to the staff at RRV to see what kind of arrangements we can customize to accommodate your specific needs for St. Patrick’s Day in the Minneapolis area of Minnesota. Read more below about our company to see what we are the best choice for event transportation in the region.

About RRV

RRV is a premiere travel and transport company providing limousine, coach, limo coach and trolley services for businesses and individuals in Minneapolis and the surrounding metro area.
