Enthralling Stories and Fantastic Views

Really enjoyed the whole experience. The informative stores were shared with such enthusiasm and knowledge. It was very enjoyable and we will definatly do this again. We also would like to do the fire boat tour and are going to also do one of the walking ghost tours.

Thanks so much Stacey_B! We so appreciate the awesome review and (if I'm not mistaken) for sticking it out in a drizzle with us! Hope to see you aboard again.
Fantastic stories and Sites!

I had so much fun. Courtney was very mesmerizing weaving stories both creepy and historical. Captain Pete was a great storyteller as well and they seamlesly passed stories and information back and forth. Just going back and forth on the river was fun but being guided by spooky stories was just so kickass. I also thought I knew about my Poe and Lovecraft and was blown away learning about their deep connection. to Providence. The two of them are also very professional and kind . I've got great pictures but tripadvisor is saying they are too big. Let me know how to send these pics to yoj.

Just being able to see the city from the water was itself a really great experience. The guide telling the stories was also really interesting and knowledgeable. We had a great time.

Thanks Ann! I am so glad that you enjoyed the Haunted Boat Tours with our guest guides from the Providence Ghost Tours! I believe you got rained out once or twice, so I'm happy that we finally got you aboard. Much appreciated!

Thanks for the awesome review of our Haunted Boat Tours, Karen! We usually just get reviews of our narrated tours, so this is a welcome addition today. We love collaborating with the "ghosties" over at Providence Ghost Tours, they're just so cool to work with, so we really appreciate this feedback! Thanks again, we're thrilled that you enjoyed your tour!

Hi Jennifer, Wow, sometimes we're a bit perplexed by a review, and yours certainly fits into this category. When your friend called us this past Sunday night, October 18 at 7:53pm, asking where check-in was for the 8:15pm tour, I immediately jumped into action mode as we didn't have an 8:15pm tour that night. And even though your friend was verbally disrespectful, cutting me off, not listening to a word that I was saying, even hanging up on me at one point, I was determined to find a solution to the problem, which I did. Luckily, your friends mother took the phone from her, apologized for her behavior, and had a rational conversation with me. Within minutes, I was able to contact our Captain, who was out on the 7:45pm tour at the time, and confirm that we could accommodate your group, even though YOU had showed up on the WRONG DATE. And, no, you didn't have to wait an hour, it was actually 45 minutes from the time of your friends initial call until you were boarding. Please see the email thread that I cut and pasted from Viator's website that details the correspondence that you and I had regarding your reservation in early September. (I also emailed you later this past Sunday night to explain this, but I never heard back from you.) I'm sorry that you came on the WRONG NIGHT, but this was 100% not our fault AND we still accommodated your party, so I really don't understand why you had to write a lousy review, demanding a refund?? I do hope you enjoyed your night out with the ladies and thank you for your business, we do appreciate it, especially these days of COVID. But please, get the facts straight. EMAIL THREAD FROM VIATOR: Kristin: Hi Jennifer, the only dates that I have left for 4 passengers would be Oct 25 at 7:45 or Oct 28 at 6:30pm. Do either of these work? Kristin Stone Sep 4, 2020, 08:25 PM J: 745 is good. Jennifer Cole Sep 5, 2020, 04:13 AM Kristin: Please call me at 401-580-BOAT. Someone purchased the last four tickets for 7:45pm after I emailed you last night. Please call to discuss all of our open dates. Thank you! Kristin Stone Sep 5, 2020, 09:24 AM J: Hi what is open?? Jennifer Cole Sep 5, 2020, 10:10 AM J: I could take the Oct 14 at 7 pm. Jennifer Cole Sep 5, 2020, 10:12 AM J: I can to Oct 28 at 630 Jennifer Cole Sep 5, 2020, 02:56 PM Kristin: OK, I will book you for October 28 at 6:30pm, per your email. The Viator booking will still show your original request date/time, so please ignore that information. Please arrive for check-in on October 28 by 6:15pm. Thank you!
