We just returned from Florence and used a truly fabulous guide named Silvia Ponticelli. Silvia was very knowledgeable about the city, art and history of Florence. Personally, she was easy-to- be-with, warm, kind and very charming. Silvia made Florence "come alive" for us. We appreciated how flexible she was too. She was very understanding when we changed our itinerary due... More

Our family of 5 (2 parents, 3 kids aged 4-11) had an outstanding tour of Florence with Silvia Ponticelli. She was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and patient. On top of showing us many of the sights for which Florence is known, she also pointed out other aspects of interest that we would have not noticed otherwise, such as the "modern art... More

We were fortunate enough to have engaged Paola Angelini of Guided Florence Tours during our most recent trip to Firenze. Having been there before, we decided to use a professional guide to expand our experience. We learned so much more about the sights and history of not only Florence, but Italy as a whole and the relationship of the various... More

A great walking tour with Michele. We saw all the main attractions and heard many interesting details about the history of Florence. Absolutely the best way to see the town!

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
