Paula is a fantastic guide - she is very knowledgeable and kept our multi-generational family group entertained and interested throughout the tour. Kids particularly enjoyed the photo stop at the boar statue, learning about historic football, the Vasari corridor and identifying the hidden face on the Perseus sculpture. We got lots of information that we might have missed (or under-appreciated) by ourselves and tips for the best places to go with more time. I highly recommend TBL and Paula.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Carolyn for taking the time to write such a nice review. I´m very happy that all of you liked the tour, it was a pleasure to meet you and your family. Best wishes!

My wife and I had limited time to see Florence and Paula was able to make sure we got to see all the important sites. We didn't need to wait in line at Uffizi gallery or to see David at Accademia. She was also very knowledgeable about local restaurants and other things to do in the area. I would highly recommend her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Bruce, thanks for taking the time to write me this nice review. It was a pleasure to meet you both and be your guide. Best wishes!

Recommend Paula's Duomo tour! We booked a Monday which was busy because of state museum closures. Using skip the line tickets we quickly entered the baptistery. The inside was undergoing restoration but she sat us away from noise and large groups to give us a detailed explanation of the art, religion and history. Paula got us tickets to return for the cupola climb at sunset. This was fantastic for great pictures of the city. She also gave us tour and shopping tips for the remainder of our stay!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Pete, Thanks for taking the time for writing such a nice review and for choosing me as your guide! Best wishes

Paula was a phenomenal guide and partner for our full day in Florence! Her knowledge of the city and it's treasures is extraordinary and her ability to make the city come alive inspired us to return for another full day. She shared insider knowledge of where to eat, etc. which we used when we returned. By the end of our day with Paula, we felt like we had a new friend and felt very comfortable navigating Florence on our own as well. Thank you Paula for making our first visit to Florence so wonderful!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Jeannie and Chris for your feedback. It was such a pleasure to be your guide. I hope to see you again! Best wishes Paula

Paula was fantastic. Her knowledge of the content of the Uffizi was excellent. She made it come alive for us. When one of our party had a minor health issue, she handled it easily and gently. We totally enjoyed our time with her. Plus, she recommended the best gelato place!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your kind review Gail! Knowing people like you is one of the reason’s why I love this job! It was really nice to meet you all. xx Paula
