My teenage son and I were in town visiting Brown and since we both love history, we thought a walking tour with Deena would be perfect. We were right. Her knowledge of Providence's ---and Rhode Island--history was amazing and she pointed out and explained architecture, culture, and city planning, and gave us biographies of important and influential people in the...

Deena knows her city very well. She answered all our questions and showed us all the important spots of the early Providence history. She went out of her way to make sure we had a great time and gave us several options on how to continue the tour. There was no rush. We ran over the 2hrs and she had... More

We had never been to Providence before and did not know much about the history of the city. We booked the tour with Deena (on 10/11/16) after reading great reviews here and elsewhere - she exceeded our expectations with her infectious love of the history of Providence where she was born, raised and educated. She is an expert story teller,... More

A highly informed walking tour of the historic section of Providence, namely the College Hill District. Tour guide Deena, a spry and enthusiastic graduate of Brown University and long time resident of Providence, starts off at the Roger Williams National Memorial with a fairly thorough introduction to the founder of Providence. The walk not only is a stroll through history,... More

I went to Providence last week and scheduled a tour with Deena. It was amazing. She really knows about all the places. Not a general guide who knows a few things BUT actually she knows everything, every single detail, dates, history. In addition, she is passionate about what she does and very caring and lovely with my young children. I... More

I highly recommend her for your own visit to Providence. If you're... More
