Want to feel like you step back in time? Want to hear the stories of Florence - the people, the politics, the art and intrigue? If yes, this is the tour for you. From the outset this tour was well supported and managed. All correspondence was conducted via email, and responses were timely and accurate. I was asked how I... More

We had visited Florence before but never the Uffizzi. We only had a few hours on this trip and wanted to see the highlights. I contacted Guided Florence Tours and received almost immediate response from Paola Angelini. She was readily accessible via cell phone and we were able to book a private tour with her on very short notice. We... More

We recently traveled to Firenze for the first time. We booked this tour beforehand, relying on the excellent reviews from Trip Advisor. Paola was our guide. She was simply outstanding! An art historian, she was able to make the city's complicated and ancient history come alive for us. Her understanding of Italian history and Florentine politics were extensive without being...

When planning our trip to Florence, I was overwhelmed on all that there is that is a "must see" and the complicated times/reservations, etc. So, for the first time we hired a private guide to take us around for half of a day. I will ALWAYS do this from now on! We had Michele and he was great. He spoke... More

I just returned from my trip to Italy and I must say that Paola was a phenomenal tour guide! I did all three tours offered by her company (Uffizi, walking tour, and Accademia) and would not have changed a thing. Paola's knowledge of Florentine history, art, and politics is exceptional. I also found the price of the tours to be... More

Paola was great! We learned so much! I wish that I had been taking notes so that I could remember more, since she said so much! Paola was friendly and accommodating to our schedules. We focused on a few things with more depth. We really enjoyed her personality and easiness!

As a couple who had 3 days in Florence we wanted to make sure we learned something. It was a bonus that there was an Assassins creed link because we both love the game. We found our guide Alessia to be friendly and knowledgeable. There was plenty of time for photographs and some Q and A time that you just... More

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
