We took a private tour around Florence, and a visit to Michelangelo's David with Paola. I would highly recommend Paola: her English is great, and she was brilliant at bringing the history of Florence to life. She is a real expert at building the 'story' as to how the sights came about. Paola's depth of knowledge means that you can ask almost any question and get an informed answer. She is very friendly and engaging. Highly recommended!

We had the pleasure of being guided by Paola through the streets, monuments and architectural gems of Florence. Paolo expressed love, enthusiasm, reflective insight and indepth knowledge of the city of Florence through the medieval ages until modern days. We (a party of 3) chose a personal tour which gave time and space for questions and discussions and recommend this without hesitation!

Our walking tour with Paola in Florence was a true highlight of our trip!!! We LOVED it!!! She is amazingly insightful, shares extensive knowledge in a way that makes connections and understanding to what we were seeing so interesting and fun!! It far exceeded our expectations. She is generous, authentic and simply wonderful. Our brains are still spinning from trying to absorb it all. Paola definitely enriched our time in Florence. Take this tour, you will be so thrilled you did!

Paola is incredible! I only had one day in Florence and reached out to her a few days before arrival. She put together a customized tour based on both my interests from readings and recommendations from a friend and time constraints. The tour included both the Uffizi and Accademia. One of the things that impressed me most was that if I had questions about a painting or sculpture she was not originally intending to cover on the tour, she would pivot and discuss it with me, with just as much insight as she had for the planned works. She is brilliant, accommodating, and fun!

We booked two private tours, the Uffizi and the scared heart of Florence (Duomo, museum, Baptistry). I cannot praise Paola enough, she brought everything to life in the most engaging and personal way. Her knowledge and way of explaining everything was so natural and she involved all of us a very personalised way. She was explained things with such precision but also a real respect and admiration for Florence and its history. I highly recommend anyone thinking of a tour to seek out Paola!

We had a fantastic time with Elena. She went at a pace that was comfortable for us and in two hours gave us a fantastic overview of the city. The tour ended at the Copianti statues, I’m so grateful that she convinced us to pay the 5€ to see the statues - it was the cherry on top of a perfect cake

Paola was an amazing, amazing guide. She was recommended to us by several families we knew and she did not disappoint. She didn’t just tell us facts, but told us stories and oriented us well to the history, beauty, and significance of Florence. When we toured the David, she guided us in how to view the masterpiece - we truly learned something new on how to view art and we will remember it forever. Please do not hesitate to book Paola, you will get an amazing history lesson and you will learn how to appreciate art in an amazing and emotional way.

Paola was a terrific guide ! She escorted us around Florence at a pace we enjoyed, customized it to our interests, and as a local was extremely knowledgeable about the city's history, politics and culture. We did 2+ hours with her in the morning, broke for lunch and then 2+ more hours in the afternoon. She also speaks near perfect English. Highly recommend her.

Heading to Florence and feeling a little overwhelmed with the choices of tours and tour guides? Yes, we initially felt the same! Booking a tour guide can be very daunting! Choosing Guided Florence Tours was the best decision we made! Paola was just incredible. She was knowledgeable, fun and friendly and kept us interested the entire time. So much so that we actually booked FOUR tours with Paola. She was fantastic with the 3 children too and really knew how to make it memorable. Paola was a joy to deal with when booking. She left me absolutely confident after every conversation, that we had chosen the right company... and it did not disappoint. I cannot stress how good this company is, if you are booking tours when you head to Florence, book with them and you will not regret it!

Paola is phenomenal. She's brilliant, funny, and incredibly knowledgeable about art, history, politics, and religion. We took a tour of the Duomo/Baptistry/Duomo Museum and came away at the end of the tour understanding so much more than we ever would have without her. Paola's understanding of the art and changes in artistic styles was astounding and she managed to weave together the story of the Duomo and Baptistry over the course of many centuries. It was fascinating. SHE IS AMAZING!!!
