Day 1
Providence, RI

Head to Providence’s Little Italy, where the day’s activities will certainly make you feel as though the bus flew you across the ocean!

Join your tour guide for a behind-the-scenes tour of Providence’s Historic Federal Hill.  Your senses will be intoxicated with the flavors, smells, sounds, and sights of Italy.  You will see why Federal Hill is described as “One of the top ten Little Italy’s in America.” Enjoy a three-course lunch at Trattoria Zooma, specializing in classic Neopolitan dishes in the heart of Federal Hill.  Lunch begins with Caesar Salad and the choice of:  Eggplant Parmesan, or Chicken Piccata, or Baked Salmon.  All entrees come with Pasta or Vegetables, Dessert, Soft Drinks, and Coffee.

The Italian experience continues onboard an original Venetian Gondola, where you can view the historical sights of the Renaissance City from a truly unique vantage point.  Glide under the magnificent Italian-influenced bridges while observing the illustrious beauty surrounding the Riverwalk.  A little singing by the gondolier will complete the experience.

Sit along the Riverwalk listening to live music with an Italian flair.  The music, covered bridges, magnificent architecture, the food, and gondolas will certainly transport you to Italy.  In sitting along the Riverwalk, some benches are provided.  If you would like to bring a chair to sit in while listening to music, you are more than welcome to do so.

Always enjoy my trips w/tour guide Donna McAdam. She is friendly & Informative. I met nice people on this trip. Also I have been pleased w/all the bus drivers on each trip I’ve been on to get us safely & timely to each destination! On another note, the food can be very sporadic in quality on all the trips I’ve been on! The restaurant dinner where we picked from 3 diff meals (this trip) was very mixed up our orders & they didn’t have enough prime rib to go around for the folks that ordered it. They served 3 diff desserts Choco cake, carrot & cheesecake to each table. And when someone said I prefer the chocolate cake because I don’t care for carrot cake, the response was no we don’t have anymore! They really just wanted us out of there! Thought you should know this!

I cannot say enough about my first trip with Tours of Distinction! Our tour guide, Lorraine, our tour director, Julie, our bus diver, Nick were beyond awesome! They were very accommodating and always at our beck and call! They were very personable, helpful and fun! Every minute was filled with eating great food, enjoying fun entertainment, meeting new beautiful people, visiting new places, enjoying pleasant rides across many breathtaking areas of the western part of our country while listening to the history of that area, and then resting comfortably in extremely nice accommodations every night! I will be taking another trip with this company! 🤠

We enjoyed this trip to Saratoga very much. The horse races were exciting and of course the transportation from place to place was always convenient. We did feel a bit rushed on our morning after breakfast, the free time in town could have been shortened and more time allowed before checkout at the Inn. The ship on Lake George was very big and service suffered a bit because of the number of passengers. Overall a recommended trip.
