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.

Local Trolley Service in Minneapolis-St. Paul

Posted on September 29, 2017 by Chad
Minneapolis Trolley

Twin Cities Trolley

Twin Cities – Replicas of the San Francisco cable cars that were first built in the 1870’s, RRV’s version of the trolley has had custom upgrades and amenities added to the classic favorite to create a fun, comfortable, and elegant experience for your next event.

First of all, there are no cables! Each Trolley is a stand-alone 22-30 passenger vehicle capable of taking
you anywhere for any occasion. Tour the River Valley’s in style for a wine tasting or visit your local pubs
with a few dozen of your friends or use a trolley if your wedding party is just too big to fit into a
standard limousine, but too formal for a bus. Or if you just want to make a stylish entrance.

The Trolley is a fun way to accent any evening with more than a little bit of classical style.
An enduring symbol of old world charm the original trolleys were first opened to the public in

1873 to fill the need for a safe efficient form of transportation. Set in bustling cityscape with a booming population the trolley became not just another mode of transportation but a staple of daily life for the City goers of San Francisco as much a part of the city as the destinations it carried its customers to. At one point 23 lines were created between 1873 and 1890. Due to the rise of the electric car, buses, and the
automobile by 1944 they were reduced to 2 single lines as a memento of an error predating the
automobile. To this day the remaining San Francisco trolleys are a symbol of civic ingenuity and public
minded integrity, a form of transportation that transcends mundanity and harkens back to a bygone
aesthetic. They are considered national treasures and are one of only two mobile national monuments
in the country.

Providing the authentic styling of a San Francisco trolley with all of the modern accoutrements Renee’s
Royal Valet has is offering the closest and the next best thing to traveling all the way to San Francisco.
Each trolley constructed with impeccable detail and is fitted with full climate control, authentic brass
railings and bells, a new stereo system with iPod adaptor, and a PA system, as well as your very own
“conductor” to use it.

To reserve a trolley in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area for your next special event you are just a few clicks

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.

Minneapolis City Tour

The Twin Cities, which encompasses the greater Minneapolis and St. Paul metropolitan area, is home to around 4 million residents who live in a geographic area that stretches into Western Wisconsin (Hudson, WI is one of the most easterly lying suburbs of the metro area). This includes hundreds of suburbs, some as small as 69 people and some as large as 85,000 (like Bloomington). Your city tour can be customized by contacting and consulting with us on a coordinated travel plan in the Twin Cities.

Mall of America

Since we already mentioned Bloomington, a shopping stop might be the famous Mall of America, one of the largest shopping centers in the United States and it is right next door to a large IKEA outlet as well.

Brewery Tours

Minnesota is home to a diverse and growing list of micro- and craft breweries and “brewpubs” that are spread throughout the Twin Cities. Our website contains a list of these special Minnesota-based craft beer breweries, which are great attractions. They are also a lot of fun, as well as educational. Learn how beer is made!

US Bank Stadium, First Avenue and Target Field/Center

Target Center and Target Field (where the Minnesota Twins professional baseball franchise and Minnesota Timberwolves pro basketball team play) are located right across the street from the historic music venue First Avenue, where Prince once played. Big news right now (at least according to rumor) is that Paisely Park may become a tourist destination and possible museum for fans of Prince’s music. US Bank is the new super technologized stadium where the Minnesota Vikings play. It’s great to be state that has all four major sports teams, plus a growing soccer league. useu

Walker Art Center and Museums

The Walker Art Center is a great place to see art. Also, the twin cities is home to the most live theaters per capita of any city besides NYC. There is a lot of art and culture here to explore. Beyond the great restaurants and awesome people, there are history museums and other arts museums and centers, including the science museum.

University of Minnesota

Check out the U of M campus, one of the largest colleges in the nation (in the top 3) while you’re in town. It’s an amazing campus with its own set of attractions and neighborhoods.

Minneapolis Trolley Rides – Photo from Wayzata Art Fair near Lake Minnetonka.

Looking for summer fun? June 21 was the first day of summer and the weather has been beautiful, so people are out looking for things to do in Minneapolis/St. Paul metro area. Old fashioned trolley rides are a great fun summer activity that brings friends, family, colleagues and groups together. Take an amazing trolley tour of the city and its sprawling suburbs. We have an amazing fleet of vehicles that will make you feel like you stepped into a movie set from San Francisco.

Our trolleys, like the one pictured in the photo above, can seat several passengers. The Wayzata Art Fair was an event that made good use of the Trolleys in our fleet. We accommodate all types of summer events in the Minneapolis area, including fairs, festivals, concert series, parades and other large outdoor activities. The art fair, where this photo was taken, took place near beautiful Lake Minnetonka, that place Prince (R.I.P.) so nostalgically talked about in his diatribes of “Purple Rain”, in which the phrase “Purify Yourself in the Waters of Lake Minnetonka” has become famous.

We have done several St. Patrick’s Day activities with our trolleys in the month of March, which are a great type of event to help us prepare for the many great Minnesota activities taking place during the summer in the Twin Cities metropolitan area. In the months leading up to summer, we condition and clean our trolley so we can provide the best transportation experiences for our passengers when the time comes. We regularly maintain the vehicles with repairs, cleaning, painting, etc.

Do you want to have an experience like none other? Take a Minneapolis trolley ride for that one of a kind experience. The cars are unique, just like our home state and city of Minneapolis, where our company is centrally located. Get out for a night on the town, breathe the fresh air and take in all the great surroundings and activities our great region has to offer in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area.

We also offer limousine, coach and trolley rides for wedding parties. Give Renee’s Royal Valet a call today to get started with your custom transportation service for your event, activity or party.
