My 80-year-young French mother, my trendy artistic 14-year-old daughter, and my middle-aged-teacher-self booked Deena for two hours yesterday, in Providence, RI. We arrived at the the Roger Williams National Memorial, not knowing quite what to expect. Deena greeted us with great warmth and humor, and led us on a local walk, entertaining us all the while with details of things... More

I toured with Deena earlier this month when I was in town to interview for a job at Brown. She is incredibly knowledgeable about the history and present-day of Providence, and I had a blast seeing the city through her eyes. We started at Roger Williams Park and walked along the original streets of Providence containing the original houses established... More

My husband and I had arranged a walking tour with Deena on Christmas Day in advance by phone. She explained that these tours are custom-designed to suit the interests of her clients, and she was very flexible about when and where we would meet. She had lots of interesting information and anecdotes to impart as we walked through much of... More

Fantastic two hour walking tour for four of us. I've lived outside of Providence for 18 years and never knew its history. Deena changed that in an interesting and personable way. She is very enthusiastic, friendly and knowledgeable. Highly recommended!

I scheduled a tour with Deena during my weekend roadtrip to New England. She was a marvelous tour guide who truly has a passion for the history of Providence. Her walking tour covered all the essential elements of Providence history and culture from the colonial era through the present. I am a history teacher so my expectations were pretty high.... More

She was a font of information and took us to places (like the gorgeous RISD library/dormitory in a bank building we NEVER would have gone into!). She's full of energy and information! I had driven through Providence many times between the Cape and CT but never stopped to learn about all the history there and the fascinating Roger Williams!! Just... More

Deena gave us a personal tour just for the 3 of us. We could ask questions and go at our own pace. We covered a lot of territory and we felt we learned a lot of history. Deena is a retired school teacher and the most energetic senior I've ever seen!
