          Perfect Day in Tuscany
          Wonderful day with Paola in Tuscany! We loved the cities of San Gimignano and Siena and thoroughly enjoyed our Tuscan winery visit! This was one of our favorite days of our trip. So fun and beautiful as well! Thank you Paola for bringing the cities to life with your knowledge… just a perfect day.

          Beautiful countryside, excellent guide.
          We thoroughly enjoyed our day trip through Tuscany with lunch and wine tastings. We visited Montepulciano, Piensa and Montalcino. Paola is very knowledgeable and took great care of us. She answered all of our questions, including those we didn't know we should ask. In addition to our day with her, she gave us great advice about more things to see in Florence, where we were staying, and even made reservations for us at recommended places in Florence. Paola made a difference in the way we experienced Florence and Tuscany. I highly recommend using Paola as your guide.

          Private tour at group prices with very helpful guide! Exceeded our expectations
          Guiseppe took us on a 2 hour 40 min tour (though he charged only for 2 hours!), covering much more history than what we had expected. He was very friendly, took time to learn about us and our interests, and then went on to cover of course Acaademia / David but many more areas of Florence while we walked from our hotel to Accademia and then towards the dome. I would highly recommend Paola's tour.

          Paola Migliorini is a knowledgable tour guide. We recommend her tours!
          We had a fantastic Private Walking Tour of Florence which included the Accademia Gallery. Our guide, Paola Migliorini, has many years of experience and she was extremely knowledgable. She shared the secrets and history of the city and we learnt so much. We enjoyed exploring all the hidden gems she share with us and her amazing guide skills. Thanks for a wonderful day of touring the beautiful city of Florence!

          We had an amazing private tour and will have the memories for a lifetime.
          We started our tour as a private tour of two wineries. After one beautiful winery, we decided to go on to San gemenico at Paula's suggestion. So glad we did. It was an amazing small town in Siena in the tuscany region.

          Very helpful and friendly service
          Paola helped our group of 8 in arranging all the local tour and transfer during our 5 day stay in Tuscany. She replied timely to our enquiries before the trip. We enjoyed the tour to San Gimignano and Siena arranged according to our pace. She recommended good restaurants and helped made booking. All pickups were punctual. Highly recommended.

          Choose a Tour with Paola She's The Best
          We hired Paola to take us to our grandfather's home in Prato, Italy. She arrived at our ship in Livorno promptly and we were on our way. During the ride to Florence (Prato) she provided entertaining commentary about the area. After visiting Prato we prearranged for Paola to take us to two vineyards - Capezzana and Dianalla. Capezzana was ok very small and wine not our favorite, howeveer, Dianalla is not to be missed. We did and food and wine tasting and tour. It is not to be missed. Located in the town of Vinci, where Leonardo was born, it is also a hotel offering cooking classes. Wine and food were delicious. Paola was a delight to spend our nine hour tour with and will customize your tour to fit your travel plans. She is courteous, knowleddgable and goes out of her way to be sure you are safe and cared for.

          Paola is the best
          We were recommended to Paola by a friend of a friend, and we did it "all" with her and her colleagues: several walking and museum tours in Florence, a food tour, a cooking class, three one-day trips to San Gimignano, to Pisa and Lucca, and through the Tuscany countryside and to Volterra. It was magical, and everything we'd hoped for in celebration of our 50th anniversary.

          Best Guide in Florence- Paola of course!
          Paola came highly recommended by the Rick Steve’s Florence guide so we were not surprised by her professionalism in communicating about our travel plans. We started with a 4 hour walking tour of Florence. Great preparation for visiting the historic sites in the following couple of days. She also knows the best restaurants, shops, gelato breaks, coffee shops and comfort stops in the city. Her personality brings old Florence to life. Highly recommend.

          The perfect countryside tour
          Paola's tour of the rolling hills and towns near Florence was exactly what we were looking for and it was outstanding. She is very knowledgeable, well spoken and fun to be with. The winery she took us to served a wonderful assortment of local wines and food. It was the perfect tour for my daughter, granddaughter and me. I highly recommend her, Sue Anderson, Superior, Az USA

          We would like to thank Paolo for a wonderful day seeing the Tuscan country side. The views were magnificent and her knowledge on the towns was stellar. She picked us up right on time, she was well organized, warm and a fabulous tour guide. Thank you!

          Wonderful tour guide who brings the most important things in the museums alive!
          Paola is very personable and easy to understand the history of Florence behind the art collections in the Uffizi & Academia. The surrounding streets and architecture from the 1300s to the 1900s is pointed out & put into perspective. An expert in art history & both lived & studied her whole life in or near Florence. Very highly recommended!

          Wonderful tour of Florence
          This was a wonderful tour. It really helped us put the pieces of history together. I can now look at things in buildings and understand when they were built in what was happening. It helps you understand the history of Florence much better. The best is they adapt tours to the interest of individuals on the tour. I certainly recommend them. We will be giving her name to our friends.

          Two Great Guides
          We spent one full day with Giuseppe and a half-day with Paola touring the Uffizzi, the Academia, the Duomo and Santa Croce. They were both knowledgeable, engaging friendly and professional. We learned much about Florence from them. Giuseppe 's knowledge of art history is phenomenal. Paola added so many jewels of information regarding what we saw and where we were staying.

          Paola is the best!!!
          OMG! I contacted Paola 2 years ago planning our 50th wedding anniversary trip to Tuscany. We (4 couples) toured with her and her husband Guseppie, three days in total. Paola is absolutely fantastic as a tour guide and driver. She picked us up at Villa Montesassi in the Chianti Hills and brought us home after wonderful tours. She was thoughtful and cognizant of our individual wants and needs. She is such a joy. I would not hesitate to hire and tour with her again. Thank you Paola.

        On the back of so many positive reviews, decided to book with Paolo for a Pisa / Florence shore excursion from Livorno (private tour with 8 people).

        First off, the van was clean and comfortable.

        Unfortunately, Paola wasn't our guide. Instead, it was Giuseppe. He was on time meeting us but really started off on the wrong foot but trying to present a history lesson while we were still in the parking lot of the cruise terminal. So we sat there for 5-7 minutes right from the start and immediately hit traffic leaving the port which totally killed the mood from the beginning. We all woke up early and were looking forward to a quick start. Giuseppe could've easily spent the time driving to give us some commentary.

        He said he's been a tour guide for 30 years and it shows as he very clearly wanted to do things his way rather than asking the group what kind of tour we wanted. Giuseppe stated that he wants his guests to fully understand what they're seeing and for him, that means detailed history and repetition (literally repeated certain facts 5-10 times).

        Our group wanted to maximize our time and see / experience more rather than stay in one place and listen to long commentary but Giuseppe didn't want that. After the Pisa stop (which was nice - Giuseppe dropped us off right at the entrance and was there waiting for us when we finished), I literally had to tell him how we wanted the rest of the tour to go. At one point, we had to pretend to sleep so that he would stop talking incessantly.

        Because we really didn't have the same outlook, we completely forewent the planned walking tour of Florence and had him drop us off for free time.

        I don't necessarily think Giuseppe is a bad guide, but I think his greatest weakness is not asking / caring what his guests want, preferring to do things his way only.

        I emailed the above feedback to Paolo to which she responded:

        "Buongiorno everybody
        This is the 1st complain I am receiving from him from years.
        You booked a tour with a licensed guide, it’s quite normal that is trying to introduce the city and talk, it would be have beed strange the opposite
        Of course we the guide we need to be flexible and understand the clients needs. He has a lot of patience usually and this is all be surprise what you wrote to me
        About the Mayor, you asked why we need to pay 1 euros to go to the bathroom, we don’t have any control on this, this the mayor decision
        James thank you to say is not a bad guide, as he is not, but thank you for your feedback.
        He is very upset of course of what your wrote down, but in the this busy season as this one is, is possible not to please everybody"

        ***

        To clarify: No one asked why bathrooms cost 1 euro. It's a private bathroom and they can charge whatever they want. The issue was that many in the group needed to use the restroom. We passed a McDonald's where we told Giuseppe we would be happy to stop and he did not. That was the issue. Just one of many examples where Giuseppe simply did not read the group's wishes.

        We took numerous tours during our month in Europe. All the other guides knew when to talk and when not to talk, even in join-in tours. This was a private tour and Paola's guide made no effort to ask/ascertain what our group wanted from the tour.

        On a related note, I just found another TA thread where Paola revealed that Giuseppe is actually her partner/husband... which explains a lot.

        So, YMMV but you might want to confirm which guide you're actually getting on the day...
