Deena is an absolute gem. She presents interesting aspects of Providence extremely well, and knows so much not only about its architecture, but she is a lifelong resident who provides interesting tidbits on its history and economy. She's a former teacher who listens to questions and was extremely accommodating in giving the type of tour we were looking for. She... More

Deena is a great guide. She knows the city very well and easily handles any question she is given. She adjusts quickly based on the people in the group and their interests. I would definitely go on another tous with her

Deena was not only informative and passionate, she went out of her way to make sure the four of us were all accomodated in the tour sites. When I made the reservation I was concerned that we may have a mixed bag of tastes from NYC but we were all delighted and captivated for the two hour tour. I look... More

Deena's knowledge is so vast that she could respond to questions about the historical past up to Providence's future development plans. And to think I had been walking by some of these spots not knowing anything about them. History and the role Providence plays in it came alive. Loved the hidden gems of places she took me to and the... More

Deena is so knowledge about Providence and so accommodating. I had relatives from Portugal visiting and Deena got in our car and gave us a thorough tour of the city. I have lived near by all my life and Deena showed us locations I never knew existed. She went out of her way to accommodate everyone's requests with a constant... More

Tour with Deena was both informative and entertaining. We had a group of 6 and ages ranging from my son 16 to my father-in-law 84 and my mother-in-law in a wheel chair (while she can walk she gets tired very easily). Deena was very accommodating to our needs and still gave us a good look at our nation's history. All... More

Me and my boyfriend took a tour with Deena the day of the Waterfire festival, and it was one of the best tours I've ever taken in my life. Deena knew the answer to every question we asked, she took us to really cool little spots in College Hill I didn't even know about, and she has a wonderful way... More

This was my second opportunity to walk the streets of College Hill In Providence with Deena and I enjoyed it as much as the first time. Deena is extremely knowledgeable and is genuinely happy to share her knowledge. I would highly recommend Deena for this tour and I plan on calling her again to do the Jewelry District in Providence.... More

My Dad turned 70 this week, and we were having a hard time with what to get him for his bday to make it extra special. He loves history & has done his homework on Boston but not Providence. I found Deena on Trip Advisor, and thanks to previous excellent reviews, I booked a 2 hour tour for 4 of... More

We had an amazing time touring Providence, RI with Deena Liffmann. In two hours time she covered all the major attractions and important places in Providence. The kind of details that Deena provided was really amazing. She took personal interest in sketching out the tour plan that covered all the significant places. We really enjoyed our tour with Deena and... More
