Giovanna is a practicing archaeologist whose enthusiasm for the subject of this tour was matched by her knowledge. She also pointed out things of interest from other eras as we toured around central Florence, and happily answered all questions. I highly recommend both her and this tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your feedback Liz! It's been a pleasure showing the "archaeological side" of Florence!!!

Giovanna offered this unique tour of archaeological Florence and its was just what we wanted. She showed us the remnants of the ancient walls, even those inside a shop under the glass floor. She had handouts to show the layout of the city and then we saw the artifacts in the Florence museum. She was knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the subject and we learned a lot about ancient Florence.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Lester and Gayle, Thank you for you feedback. It has been a pleasure to be your guide in Florence!

Giovanna was a superb guide in every aspect! She was wonderful to correspond with & was flexible with the change of our tour time due to train delays. She made sure we ate a quick lunch before touring as she graciously waited! During the tour she was a FANTASTIC guide! She was passionate about everything she was sharing, pointing out detailed information that was intriguing! She literally made our 1ST hours in Florence spectacular and we are forever grateful to her! Thanks Giovanni! You're THE BEST!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Marianne for this great review!! It has been my pleasure touring with you in Florence, hope you will come back soon!

To say that my family of 5 was pleased with Giovanna's tours would be a vast understatement. Her knowledge and enthusiasm for the art and culture of Florence was endless and captivating. She "connected" the dots in so many levels that we felt as if we got a real vision of what life was like from the peasants to the aristocracy. If you are looking for a vibrant guide that is as kind as she is knowledgeable, Giovanna will not disappoint. The Saffer Family

Gio was great! She communicated with us well before the tour to make sure we knew where to meet, if we needed anything, etc. she arrived early and guided us quickly into the museum. She was great at maneuvering us thru the crowds to get a good view of what it was she was explaining. We were 3 couples with not much knowledge of the art or history of the area. Gio did a fantastic job of explaining what we were seeing, giving us historical context while also making it interesting! Highly recommend!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kindness Susan, I had a great time with you! Hope to meet you again here in Florence!

Giovanna was exceptional- fun, informative, and engaging. We saw so much more in the few hours we had with her that we ever would have seen with a cruise tourgroup. Her knowledge of art and architecture is admirable- her tour of the Uffizi gallery was phenomenal- we had other people just hanging out near us so they could listen to her. Using the private car from the cruise terminal was a little expensive, but well worth it in the time we saved vs using the bus.

Giovanna was the PERFECT guide! She is so knowledgeable and we loved hearing the history of this beautiful city while she took us from place to place. She was willing to modify the tour based on our preferences- which is one of the reasons we love tours by locals. The driver was right on time picking us up from the ship and the van was new and comfortable- with great air conditioning! Thank you for a wonderful day in Florence. Wish we had more time with this fantastic guide! Grazie!

Giovanna is a wonderful guide. She arranged for us to visit Pisa, purchased our timed tickets to climb to the top of the tower in advance and also arranged for skip the line tickets to see The David in Florence. Giovanna is very friendly and extremely knowledgeable. Her love for Florence is evident at every turn. She was terrific with our kids and made sure they stayed engaged and were having fun. We highly recommend Giovanna to anyone visiting Florence. She is an amazing guide and a fabulous person!

We thoroughly enjoyed our pleasant and educational tour with Giovanna. We were very impressed with her knowledge of the history of Florence and Tuscany as well as how that history was shaped by the cultures of greater Europe, Asia and Africa. She was very good at keeping our interest and engaging us in her explanations. Our trip to Florence was greatly enhanced by her expertise and we strongly recommend her tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your feedback! I really liked to show you the Archaeological Museum and the Roman Florence, and I appreciated a lot your interest for the history of our city! Hope to see you again in Florence! Giovanna
