Private tour with Deena

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

Deena was an excellent tour guide. Professional, prompt, flexible, truly knowledgeable(a former teacher) and the real deal...a native of Providence. She knew places and routes I had never seen ...and I am a former Rhode Islander! My friend was very pleased with the depth of detail(the history and origin was very well presented)and how the tour was conducted. I can't... More

Deena was awesome. She accommodated my personal schedule with an evening private tour of Providence, asking for my preference on focus of the tour. She knows Providence inside out, really brings it to life.

A gold mine of information for a bargain price! The most efficient use of your time and money. Deena Liffman was punctual, energetic, extremely knowledgeable, followed a full but flexible itinerary and we really enjoyed her company!

For a first time visit to Providence Deena gave us a great overview and was the best part of our trip. She was energetic, interesting and funny. We learned a lot about the history and architecture of Providence. Would definitely tour with Deena again.

Our tour took place on a cold, overcast Tuesday when no one was on the streets. Seemed pretty bleak to begin. Deena quickly brought this historic and architecturally beautiful city to life. Buildings were closed - but not to Deena. Everyone rushed to accommodate our every needs because, I believe, that Deena secretly runs this city. ;) Ditto what all... More

I had never been to Providence so I didn't know what to expect. Through Deena's vast knowledge and quirky humor I learned how Providence got its start (Roger Williams brought people who didn't want the restrictions Massachusetts imposed on them), how it developed along the many rivers that converge in the city, and how it has recently emerged from some...

Deena is fantastic! We really enjoyed our walk. The weather wasn't the best to start our walk but thank goodness we didn't call it quits. Deena tailored the tour to our interests and questions. Highly recommended- I will take a tour again.

We learned so much about Providence in two hours. Deena did a great job keeping us moving around the city and tying all of the pieces of history together.

My husband and I toured with Deena while in Providence (Sept 28th) and had such a great time learning and seeing everything she shared with us. She is a prompt, very knowledgeable, and interesting guide with a great personality that makes for the best tour you will experience in Providence. I requested more of a “tailored” tour because my attention... More
