Deena and her walking tour came highly recommended to me as I was booking various tours for a recent trip to Providence, and my family and I were delighted! Deena was knowledgeable, full of energy, and kind. I emailed Deena to tell her a little about my family, what each person's interests are, and what we were looking to get... More

Deena is the best! Before the tour, me and my friends knew exactly nothing about Providence, but after the tour, we know how this city was built, what did people do here in different historical periods, and the story of many buildings and streets. Deena makes PVD alive for us, and she really knows the city. If you only have... More

My wife and I had a terrific tour in and around Providence, where Deena grew up. She's charming, well spoken, and was flexible about adapting to our interests.

Friends of ours from Holland were visiting and said they'd rather tour Providence than go to Boston. Having lived here for 15 years one would think we could manage...but honestly, I wanted our time to be informative and fun. That evening it was Tripadvisor to the rescue, where I found Deena and all the rave reviews. I emailed her late... More

What a gem Providence has. Deena is a wealth of information, and is very responsive to your questions. She provides not only historical information, but a personal perspective of the city.

We were driving in from Maine to meet Deena on August 1st and she could not have been any more gracious. She guided us along a most fascinating walking tour around historical Providence. The average tourist simply misses the interesting features of this city by missing this tour. Deena was personable, knowledgeable and very prepared. If you are looking for... More

Walk and talk with Deena and you will learn about Providence history, culture and architecture. She is a wealth of information and enjoys engaged listeners that ask questions and love history. The walking tour was 2 hours and can be customized to your interest.

Deena was perfect. I can't rave enough about her. The very best tour I have ever had anywhere. Her exceptional knowledge about Rhode Island and it's history is only exceeded by her enthusiasm. She was truly a joy to listen to. Eden has motivated me to learn more about Roger Williams, Providence, and Rhode Island.

Deena is a wonderful and very knowledgeable tour guide. She customized the tour just for our group, provided wonderful insight to the history of Providence, and related how Provdence's history ties into U.S. history. She is a lovely lady.
