My family and I had only one day to spend in Florence this past summer, the kids (34 and 23) were first-timers, and we needed professional help to cover as many sights as possible. Paola knew exactly what to do, she managed to work around crowds and last-minute closures with great dexterity, and she gave us a fabulous lesson in... More

Both my wife and I had visited Florence before, wondering aimless, guidebook in hand! As we only had 2 days with our 7yr old and 12yr old children we had to make the best use of our time and ensure they left Florence having learnt about the important history of the place. With Paola our guide it was absolutely the... More

We recently enjoyed a guided tour of the city and two museums with Nicoletta of Guided Florence Tours. We booked the private tour for our two families consisting of four adults and six children between 10 and 18. All of us thoroughly enjoyed this day in Florence. Nicoletta was extremely knowledgeable about the history of the city, the region and... More

Paola accommodated us at the last minute and we're glad that we could see Florence with her. She is very knowledgeable and goes above and beyond just dates and facts. She makes the most boring facts of history sound interesting and fun. It was a truly an amazing day and was the highlight of our trip to Italy. I would... More

We had a wonderful three hours with Francesca. It was of tremendous benefit to skip the line to the Accadamia. We also very much appreciated Francesca's insight into everyday life in Florence - as it was hundreds of years ago, and as it is today. I would recommend Francesca as a most capable guide to anyone spending time in the... More

We signed up for this tour with Paola for our last day in Florence thinking we would probably see much of what we had already seen in the city. To our surprise Paola provided us with a wealth of history of the city and showed us places the guide books never mentioned! My kids age 12 & 14 were completely... More

Paola taught my family and I about present day and ancient Florence in a manor we completely understood and enjoyed listening to. I highly recommend this company and Paola as an outstanding tour operator!

This was a fantastic tour of Florence. Paola had incredible knowledge and passion of the city. She had a deliberate walk path to show all facets of the city; she started with a topological model of the city, with the ancient borders, and newer borders, that gave a great perspective. Her knowledge was incredible; you can ask detailed questions and... More

Touring the Uffizi with Paola was the highlight of our visit to Florence. She took the time to explain the background and point out the details of each piece. Her knowledge of art was amazing. We wish there was a Paola in every city of Italy!
