As tourists in our own state, we gifted ourselves with Deena's walking tour as an anniversary present. We could not have been more pleased as she customized our walk to include important historical sites that we put off visiting for far too long. We left feeling that Deena's enthusiasm and knowledgeable was of great benefit and value to us. We... More

My wife and I took a tour with Deena while on vacation from New Brunswick, Canada. She was great! Very friendly, knowledgeable and a genuinely nice person. She packed a ton of interesting history and local flavour into a fun, casual walking tour. We really enjoyed it. It gave us a real appreciation for Providence.

Deena gave us a 2 hour walking tour of Providence historical city. Her knowledge of Benefit Street houses was impressive and inciteful. We enjoyed her passion and commitment to a city she grew up in was delightful. Please take her tour if you visit Providence.

Thoroughly enjoyable tour! We booked our trip a couple of months in advance and weren't sure exactly what we wanted to do. She asked us a few questions about our interests, and was able to put together a tour customized to our interests and capabilities. She was on time, extremely knowledgeable, flexible, and interesting. Would highly recommend you take a... More

Deena managed a grand feat: Keeping a busload of day tripping senior citizens not only awake but entertained and involved with her on the bus tour of downtown Providence. Considering we all had just tucked away a 4 course meal at an Italian restaurant on Federal Hill this was no small accomplishment. One suggestion for her: Be sure and face... More

Deena rode along with our party of 6 first time Providence visitors in our rental van. She is a an amazing tour guide and was able to explain the sights to us with a concise, witty, and very interesting style. We were all impressed and learned things about Providence history and architecture that I don't think we would have gotten... More

Had a great time with Deena today. We booked our tour the day before and she was very accomodating. We learned a lot about the history and architecture of the city. Deena was also able to take us inside some buildings that are not open to the general public which was great. Would highly recommend!

Deena walking tour of the City was excellent. She knows more in her little finger and is able to explain the City and its history in a fun and interesting way.

This was our first time in Providence, even though we live only an hour away. We learned so much from our 21/2 hours with Deena. She has a broad knowledge of Providence and New England history and architecture. She was willing to take it in whichever direction our interests led. We will take another tour with her the next time... More

Very thorough and quite detailed. Seemed like she had many experiences here that "bind" in with the city and its history
