Eliza was fantastic! Her tours of the Uffizi and the Academia highlighted the significant pieces in only about 4 hours. Not only did we see fabulous art, she showed us how to look at the art and understand the message of the artist. She was fun and enthusiastic and told us many side stories that made us laugh & appreciate our experience. We were 4 women in Italy for the first time. We highly recommend her as a guide.

Eliza is an extremely knowledgeable and wonderful guide. She provided us an outstanding tour of Florence in the short three hours we had available. We toured all the famous sites and some "not so well known" sites . . . which we found very enlightening. And the finale was the Gelato . . . a hidden gem off the beaten track. An educational yet entertaining tour!!! Eliza is a vibrant and passionate young lady. We would book her again in a second and highly recommend you book her too!!!!

This was our first time in Florence, and we only had the afternoon so we wanted to make the most of it. Eliza was fantastic. She was friendly and informative. She showed us the highlights - and the David, of course - in the short time we had. Florence is a beautiful city. We only wish we could have stayed longer. Grazie mille Eliza!

Eliza was fabulous. She tailored the itinerary to show us what we were most interested in. We went to the Uffizi and Academia museums where she had arranged for fast entrances. I believe Eliza could tell you the history of every piece of artwork in the Uffizi. She has lived in Firenze 20 plus years and knows the history and stories of all the important and non-important buildings in the city center. She found us a great local restaurant to eat lunch and later for some great local gelato.

Eliza was a very knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide for our overview tour of Florence. Once we let her know that we had some background on the city having been there (briefly) once before, she was able to share more detailed information and also show us sights that we wouldn't have known about or found out on our own. We very much enjoyed our 4 hours together.

Eliza was amazing ! We had a wonderful day with her . She was very patient with us as we arrived late due to parking issues. She only desired to make our day special and unique and asked us before we started what we wanted most to see, if we were hungry etc. Eliza was so comfortable in the city and she took us to so many "off the beaten path places and eateries. We enjoyed the food, the gelato and the coffee lattes we picked up throughout the day. The "David" was the highlight of our day !"Thank you Eliza

Eliza will give you a phenomenal tour that is very well organized and chock-full of wonderful details about Florence. She went smoothly and efficiently from one area to the next. If I could give her more than 5 stars, then I would! Even our 3 teenagers were fascinated. We had 8 people and the 6 hour tour. There was never a dull moment, and even at the two museums she pointed out so many interesting facts. We got much more than we anticipated, and now she has made Florence very special to us.

Thanks to Eliza, I and my daughter had very good memories in Florence. She took us to Uffizi museum, Academia museum, and many kinds of workshops of traditional arts & crafts. Especially her guiding of art works of the Renaissance Period was so impressive and informative. She is also very kind and cheerful. So I felt as if I were with my friend.

I would use Eliza when we tour Florence again. Eliza met us with a smile and warm welcome. She gave us a brief history of Florence and wanted to make sure she understood what was important to us on the tour. Eliza is enthusiastic about showing off Florence and makes it alive. Fantastic local spots for lunch and gellato. My wife has some walking limitations and Eliza made sure we took short cuts, used lifts, and made sure we were not moving too fast or too far. Amazing tour with a wonderful lady.

Eliza's English is VERY GOOD. She is also a super pleasant person who spent extra time with us to ensure that we have a complete and satisfying experience in Florence. We highly recommend Eliza as a guide.

Eliza gave us a great walking tour of the city. We had just arrived by train prior to the start of the tour and had not had any lunch. She took us to a cute little café where we had pizza and a cool beverage shortly after we started our tour. It was a great start for our stay in Florence. She had great recommendations for places to eat and shop.

Eliza was great! Informative, enthusiastic and considerate of my children's interests and limits. Her English was excellent and the time we spent with her contributed to making Florence one of the favourite and most memorable cities of our holiday. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes on your tour - Florentine's sure know how to walk their cobblestoned town, and you don't want to miss any of it!

Tour: A day in Florence featuring the main sites, Uffizi Gallery and David, Florence, Tuscany, Italy
Date: Jul 16/17

Eliza is a highly professional and knowledgeable tour guide of Florence. She knows the museums, the sculptures and paintings well and adds interesting comments about the lives and times of the artists. She knows how to make the most of the day by homing in on the most significant works of art. This tour covers a lot in one day. To see these famous works up close is a treasure. Eliza knows how to navigate the museums and avoid the lines. She is a joy to be with.

Well what can I say? Apart from... Bellissimo! Eliza was the perfect tour guide! She showed us all around Florence demonstrating an extensive knowledge of art, history and local quirks. Before the tour I had communicated with Eliza and she kindly adapted the tour to suit our needs. It was an enjoyable morning and she was clearly passionate about this beautiful city. Making us fall even more in love with it ourselves. It was the highlight of our trip! Fun facts, city tips and lots of smiles! :)

Eliza made our visit to Florence a delight! She kept our children engaged and interested through a 4-hour walking tour that also included a visit to the Uffizi. She knew exactly how to make the tour fun and informative for children and parents alike. She is also delightful and her English is perfect. Highly, highly recommend!

Eliza was absolutely wonderful with our boys, ages 9 and 11. She kept the tour interesting for adults but fun for the kids in making it a small "competition" to find certain things on the tour. I learned a lot on the tour, which ended up lasting almost 3 hours because we were so involved in the parts of the tour, like marble paper making and eating gelato. I would highly recommend her to any family.

Eliza established a fabulous rapport with our US group of 18 pre-college students studying art and architecture in Italy. She offered a wealth of excellent information with a big smile. She was also attentive to our group needs and adjusted her tour accordingly. We left the Uffizi with a comprehensive understanding of the progress of art and understanding about the history of Florence and the Medici family.

My family spent a fantastic day with Eliza, touring the highlights of Florence. It was a wonderful start to our Italy vacation. She was knowledgeable of course,... but she seemed like one of our close friends instead of a 'tour guide'. She went out of her way, spending extra time with us , and also showing us some out of the way places ( or hidden gems ) of Florence. We went back to her suggested Gelato place every night we were in Florence. Just truly a great time with a very lovely lady, thanks again.

Eliza was awesome! Highly recommend for everyone but especially for groups with kids. She spent the time and attention to relate with each of our three kids and made the tour interesting for everyone. Teenage boys are difficult to win over but she had video game and pop culture references to keep it interesting. We did several guided tours through Italy and this was by far the best.

Eliza was fantastic on our 6 hour Florence tour. Her energy level and knowledge were great. She was very strong at balancing the scope and pace of the tour to ensure we saw the most important parts of Florence, while considering the tolerance levels of my three teen-aged boys to see "yet another" church or painting or sculpture. She also did a great job knowing when to take breaks for a snack or drink. I highly recommend her, and this tour, to anybody who has less than a day in Florence.

We had one day to see Pisa and chose Eliza to show her town to us, and what a great choice! She met us at the train station and we walked through town and saw some places that we would have otherwise missed. We did visit the cathedral and tower (and made the climb, which is worth the view), but there is more to the town. Not to mention what our family unanimously agreed was the best gelato we had in two weeks of taste testing in Italy! She was great with our 9 and 13 year old, kept them interested :)

What a fabulous tour with Eliza! She is very knowledgeable and passionate about Florence, the art and history and her explanations, stories and anecdotes brought it all to life. Since we had already visited some of the places on the tour, she went out of her way to show us the out of the way spots one would normally not see during our short stay. She is a charming as well as an excellent guide and we not only tremendously enjoyed the tour but also her vivacious company. Thanks Eliza!

What a perfect day! I can offer no higher recommendation than to say both my 19 year old son and I agreed she was by far the best guide we have ever had. She made the day fun, educational and was flexible to meet all of our requests. We started early, did all of our must sees in Florence, added Santa Croce at Eliza's urging, and completed the trip by climbing the Leaning Tower in Pisa. Eliza will have you fall in love with Florence and indeed it was my favorite city visited on this extensive trip.

She was very attentive to our needs for restrooms, coffee and lunch breaks to assure we had a nice comfortable day to break up some of the walking. She had a sweet personality and we very much enjoyed our time with her.

Thank you Eliza for our half day tour of Florence! We enjoyed the historical sights and getting acquainted with the city!. Our short time in Florence was enhanced by your friendliness, graciousness, sense of humor, and knowledge of art, history and the city. We particularly appreciate you deviating from the normal tour to accommodate our questions on where to go to shop and eat. I've used Tour by Locals many times and Eliza did not disappoint! Thank you again!
