My wife and I like to taking walking tours of the various cities we visit. We found Deena very highly rated on tripadvisor and were not disappointed. Her high ranking is well-deserved.

Got in touch with Deena from a referral and she was nice enough to meet up with me and my family at the last minute. Deena: Thank you for your seemingly tireless work helping people understand the fabric of Providence. We particularly enjoyed seeing the areas where the layers of history are visible such as Benefit Street, Prospect Park, Brown... More

With only a half a day to see Providence, we knew we had to have a tour leader who knew it all. And Deena does! For two and a half hours we walked through the historic streets of this lovely city. History, architecture, politics, culture, you name it and Deena was able to provide us with every aspect of Providence's... More

After considering several tours, we opted to go with Deena. We met her at 9 AM at our hotel and hit the ground running. Her passion for the city, its history and its architecture are evident and infectious. And while she certainly has a basic agenda to follow, she is responsive to changes in interest as well as pace. We... More

Wow, this was fun. Deena started off the tour at the visitor center in Roger Williams Memorial park, giving some of the basic history of the Roger, and the settling of Providence. She was a teacher, and has a way of making the experience interactive. She'll give you information, but then also give you clues based on what she's told... More

Deena is friendly guide that is very knowledgeable about the city of Providence. After a brief overview of the early history of the city, we embarked on a brisk stroll through the downtown and river walk areas. Her spontaneous commentary pointed out the history and architectural diversity of the city. Things that would not have been realized without a lifelong... More

Recently moved to Providence and wanted to learn more about the city's rich history. Deena was able to explain and show us some amazing sites within half a mile. We spent two hours getting to know the roots of a wonderful city through her passion for Providence. Would definitely recommend a tour with her.
