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.

Needless to say, Deena provided everything we had hoped for in a tour of historical sites in Providence. We literally "walked and talked" the history of the area. Not one of our questions went unanswered and Deena had a notebook of items/pictures she would use as a reference to help us better understand. We three sisters had a great tour!... More

My mom and I toured Providence with Deena, and loved every moment of it! She catered the speed and theme of the tour to our interests (arts, architecture, and local flavor) and was warm and witty. Deena showed us downtown with its Deco buildings, the 7 bridges project, and the old colony. We wouldn't have been able to see all... More

We found Deena via the internet and became interested after seeing how many great reviews she had been given. Today, I am very pleased to add to this long list!... More

For us, Deena proved to be a part not to be missed for a visit to Providence. Her knowledge of the city made the tour extremely interesting. Even though the city itself is a quaint, beautiful city, but Deena's insights made the city even more delightful. The tour went on in a very informal and casual style; she let us... More

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.
