We had a wonderful day with our guide Paolo who customized our private tour. One day in beautiful Florence is not enough but we were able to see & learn about so much! I can’t wait to go back and have Paolo take me around again!

I can highly recommend this tour if you want an overall introduction to Florence and its history. The tour was given although we were only two participants! The guide was sweet, knowledgeable and good at making the information interesting and visual.

Amazing guided tour; Paula captivated me the for the whole duration of tour in spite of the rainy and cold weather. Her presentation was very detailed and in depth, and was greatly appreciated by the whole group. A must, if you happen to be in Florence!

Paula is an extraordinary guide. The 2 hours tour that she prepared for us was a treat in all regards. We all appreciated her expertise, her terrific sense of humour and her passion. I thought that I knew Florence, but now, after the tour, I realize that I only start really appreciating it.

For a while, I felt that Florence's Renaissance environment had been generated this amazing person by the misty mistery of the past... That was just a foggy and rainy evening. Two hours with Poula were the best experience during my stay in Florence. Let the Florentians live!

Paula was great. She knows the city inside out, and can answer any question you throw at her. I went with a group of historians, who wanted to know really specific details - but no-one could catch her out. And we all loved the things she showed us.

We had a group of 8 people and shared the privilege of having Paula as our walking tour guide. We had perused the city the night before without knowing any of the history. Walking through it again and learning the historical stories brought Florence to a whole new level. She was smart, informative and passionate about her own city. I would recommend seeking out this wonderful guide and learning about the significance of its history and beauty. Thanks Paula!
