on June 28 and 29, 2014 we took two private tours with Paolo. She was great with our entire family of 7 (7 yrs to adult) and very knowledgeable. Our first day was a walking tour of Florence and Academia's David. This was by far our favorite of the two tours, only because we seemed to connect more with the... More

The tour company we wanted to sign up with was full and we had to find an alternative. We booked with Guided Florence tours after reading comments on trip advisor. We are not at all sorry that we did this as Paola was superb! She has so much passion! Her love, understanding and knowledge of her city is communicated to... More

I had the wonderful chance to be lead by Laura Dente around parts of Florence and Tuscany. She also takes cruise passengers from Livorno to any surrounding area, including a full day of Florence. She is young, has great English and German skills and made her country come alive for us. Highly recommend having Laura meet you and show you... More

We had a guided tour that was sponsored by our hotel, Kursaal. The guide was Paola Angelini. It was the best tour we had while in Italy. She had great knowledge of the people/buildings,history. She was a superb story teller. She used the ear insert speaker so you could always hear her and she had great English. It was a... More

We have just taken a walking tour to discover Florence with Paola Angelini. She was so knowledgeable and interesting. She took time and trouble to really educate us about the city and the way it became the power that it was during the renaissance. We saw art and sculpture from a different perspective - learning how to read it rather... More

We did 2 tours with Michele-the 2 1/2 hour "Discovery of Florence" tour and then the 1 hour tour of L'Academia. Michele's joy and interest in the history of Florence overflowed from him. He was gracious and thoughtful about questions, and was rarely stumped for an answer. We arrived about 10 minutes late, and he had kindly waited for us.

Paola was outstanding! Our group of eight toured the Uffizi, did a walking tour "Discovery of Florence, and the Michelangelo and Medici Chapel Tour with Paola. We learned a lot and had a good time doing it. She offered great insight and did a nice job of weaving together the three different tours to tell the story of the Renaissance.... More

We hired Paola Angelini to give a Tour in Florence area, she speaks many languages including English and Spanish. She was on time and explained everything in details and made the day very interesting. We had our kids with us and they were very excited to learn and be educated. I highly recommend Paola, she is very professional.

We did the walking tour of Florence with Paulo and had a great afternoon. She was very friendly and knowledgeable and brought the history of the town to life and gave it a human story so it wasn't just dates and facts. I'd emailed a few tour guides as we decided to come to Florence at the last minute, she... More

We went to see the Uffizi with Paola 2 days ago and... we are already looking forward to coming back ASAP! I am a guide myself (elsewhere) and I can say that Paola is a lovely person and a real professional. We had kids with us and she did a great job with them, they loved her. My favourite painting...
