We had the immense pleasure of having Paula give us a guided walking tour through Florence. She was very informative, without drawling on in a way that made it boring. I was comfortable with asking her questions, and she made a point to include us in her demonstrations. I learned a lot and hardly realized I was learning, all in... More

Working with Paola was a joy! She knew exactly what she was talking about, having an extensive knowledge of the city and its history. She was able to answer all of our questions-- we could tell that she had done her research. I left that tour feeling like I learned many new things!

Having Paola as our guide to Florence really made our trip there one of the best holidays we have ever had. She gave us a private tour, five half days in a row and introduced us to the awesome treasures of this amazing city. Some are what everyone visits but others, immensely special, would have been hard to find alone... More

My wife and I stepped off a wonderful Adriatic cruise in Venice and were on our own to explore Venice and Florence before returning to the US. Fortunately, we had been in touch with Paola several months before and she had arranged... More

She was knowlegable and very familiar with the city. When it came time for us to pick a place to eat she was always a great resource for recommendations. We extremely enjoyed her as a tour guide. She was clear and always open to questions.
