What a wonderful guide you were Eliza. For anybody reading this, we can't say enough about her wonderful personality and knowledge of Florence. We did her Uffizzi Gallery and David tour. She was more than accommodating to things we wanted to see and her passion for Florence history and art was self evident. Take her tour with couples or with children. You won't be disappointed. Thank you again Eliza. We learned a lot from you.

What a great tour we had. We were a family of four, 2 older parents and 2 millennials. Eliza listened to what we were interested in and made sure to tailor the tour that way. She was very thoughtful about rest and bathroom breaks but we really packed a lot of sightseeing in to our time while learning a lot about life then and now. Eliza had lots of great stories about the art, artists, buildings and people of Florence which we would have totally missed if we had visited on our own. It was "perfetto".

We had a wonderful tour with Eliza. She has a very cheery personality, a good sense of humor and her English is excellent. At our request, our tour was a mix of art, architecture, history and local color, and she did a great job of including all of these in a fun, interesting and informative manner. Highly recommend!

What a fantastic tour! Eliza steps you through the entire Florence A-Z in one remarkable day. From the architecture, history, art and culture, this tour encompasses it all. If you only have one day in this wonderful city, then this is the tour for you. Eliza navigates you through the quiet backstreets avoiding the crowds and letting you see the quieter side of Florence; yet you are never far from the attractions. Skipping the lines at the museums is also a wonderful plus if you are time constrained.
We had a guided tour of Pisa and Florence with Eliza who lives in the centre of Florence. She has perfect English as a second language and is extremely knowledgeable about both cities, and gave us an in-depth study of their art, architecture and history. Thoroughly recommend. 5*+

Eliza was a of information with her background in art history and her knowledge of history of Florence. Eliza was very personable and also considerate of our slower walking but yet keeping us informed every step of the way during the tour. Eliza is surely an asset to Tours by Locals. She gives 110% to the tour and goes out of her way to accommodate us by getting us into a restaurant at the peak of lunch time. She is gracious and will undoubtedly continue to be a huge success in her field of history.
Eliza was an excellent tour guide. We had a really fun time with her...she knows her city and completely adapts the tour to your interests. Thanks, Eliza!
Larry GlickUnited States
Eliza is an incredible guide with undeniable passion and knowledge. This was my second time with her and she was just as good if not better than the first. Her local suggestions proved to be tremendous choices for drinks, meals, and souvenirs.
We had a second fantastico tour with Eliza. She took us to all the best places in the inner core of Florence. Eliza also arranged a great lunch at a restaurant on the other side of the Arno in the middle of our tour. We also had an excellent tour of the Uffizi. Eliza shared wonderful knowledge with us and was always concerned about our water needs on a very warm August day.
Eliza was a fantastic tour guide for the start of our visit to Florence. She arrived promptly at the arranged time and confirmed with everyone in our group of 8 their interests in the tour. Eliza shared a lot information about Florence during the tour and answered all of our questions. Throughout the tour she always asked if the tour was meeting our expectations and made sure we knew how to get back to our hotel at the end of the tour. Well done Eliza!
Colin CampbellUnited States
Wow! Really fantastic and they day just fly by even with two teens in tow. The teens are into Greek mythology as well and Eliza did an awesome job of challenging them and keeping them interested. Also knows the best gelato places!
Catherine RosenbergUnited States
Eliza was a wonderful guide! If we could give her 6 stars, we would! Our tour was during record heat and she managed to keep us in the shade and happy (even with 9 year olds and a 2 year old)! My daughter just told me how much she loved the tour and that she learned so much history! I love that! Thanks, Eliza!!
Kristina MaiwaldtUnited States
With Eliza we had a perfectly timed, personal, informative, and wonderful day tour of Florence. Eliza was fantastic at managing the requests of our group of 5! She always asked for a consensus and provided a recommendation based on the feedback. We were able to really knock out Florence in a day which makes the private tour well worth the money. Eliza was smart as a whip and provided little surprises that kept things interesting. She is very is charming, too. Hard not to love her and FLORENCE. Magical.
David CanadyUnited States
We can't imagine visiting Florence without the help of Eliza. Her warm personality and knowledge of the city made our visit to Florence incredible. We saw the major sights, local neighborhoods and great shopping. Our experience with Eliza was A+++!!!!
Alan MaltzUnited States
Eliza was a wonderful guide - knowledgeable, attentive and bubbly personality. Her background in art history helped us to understand the Uffizi and Academia. Highly recommended
Jane LudwigUnited States
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.
Tamara CareyUnited States
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!!!!
Eric StentzelUnited States
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!
William YatesUnited States
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.
Allen MeltonUnited States
Eliza is a wonderful tour guide. Personable, knowledgeable, great with our daughters, flexible to meet your needs. You cant go wrong hiring her.
Davis RiemanUnited States
Eliza was fabulous, we had bad weather at start, and Eliza went out of her way to reschedule balance of tour so we could maximize it in good weather later in day - she has a great knowledge of area, and an easy going personality that made it feel like she was part of our family - if I could give her 6 stars I would.
Billie Jo PearsonCanada
We are a group of six and our recent walking tour of Florence with Eliza was top notch. The tour was not only educational, filled with history and knowledge of the city but also was very entertaining. Eliza was an excellent guide to spend our time with. We would definitely book a tour with Eliza anytime. She was amazing
Ben KibbeUnited States
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.
Karen DowdenUnited States
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
Lori FranklinUnited States
Eliza is wonderful! Super easy to communicate with before the tour, very flexible, and made a point of learning all family members' names when we met. She is warm, enthusiastic and clearly loves Florence! Our children really enjoyed her, and we appreciated her making an effort to keep our 10-year-old engaged. Afterwards the kids commented that it was a great experience. Eliza recommended and made reservations for us at a wonderful restaurant! We were so grateful to find this place. Eliza is great!
Meri Chen ElbrechtUnited States
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.
Joshua PetersonUnited States
Eliza was excellent! My wife and I did this tour on our honeymoon. Eliza was very informative about every aspect of Florence from antiquity to the best places for lunch, gelato, and shopping. By far the best way to see Florence and the best tour we've done in Italy.
Johnny AtkinUnited Kingdom
An excellent tour. Very informative, interesting and carefully tailored around our stated requirements. Eliza is enthusiastic and very knowledgeable.
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 and my daughter really enjoyed the art tour. I highly recommend her as the best guide in Florence.
