Our tour was wonderful. Our guide, Elisabetta M, was extremely knowledgeable and excited to share all she knew. The tour was the perfect amount of time. Not too long, not too short. We asked Elisabetta for a recommendation for a quality leather store. Her recommendation is greatly appreciated. We purchased two beautiful leather jackets that we will wear for many years to come. It truly was a great experience. Thank you Elisabetta M. Arrivederci

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Arrivederci Allison! Thank you for your lovely feedback. Great to be with you and your husband and I am glad you found some authentic leather products. As I told you today, since I got ripped off myself, when shopping I am careful more than ever. All the best!!!

Elisabetta was without doubt one of the most interesting and informative guides we have ever had the pleasure of meeting. Her depth of knowledge is extraordinary and she greatly enriched our experience of Florence and Renaissance Art. We particularly valued her ability to place the art and the artists within a historical, social and political framework and make striking parallels with more recent history. We only wish she could accompany us every day.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Grazie davvero Carolyne, I cannot tell you enough how much I have enjoyed our time together, including our prosecco on the Arno river! Your questions and comments - which was music to my ears - encouraged me to go deeper into history. How corroborating in this superficial world we live in :-) Have a lovely time in Florence.

My tour was outstanding. As a former student of history I have very particular interests and Elisabetta went out of her way to tailor the tour accordingly. She knows the Uffizi like Director. Elisabetta brought me to all the works that suited me. The tour of the Centre Storico was great. The crowds in Florence are rough. If you want to see Florence in a civilized way- go to the best places, skip lines, enjoy art, architecture and history. Then book with Elisabetta!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Grazie Christopher for a great review! It is extremely flattering to get an appreciation of my job from someone that knows so much in terms of history and art. Thank YOU for a very pleasant day!

She selected an easily identifiable central meeting spot which started off our tour on the right note. She curated the best highlights of the city for us to see and expertly navigated them providing salient information as we toured. She answered all of our questions with ease and was a true pleasure from start to finish. If you are going to Florence, let Elisabetta show you the way!

My wife and I just returned from a week vacation in Tuscany.We had the good fortune of spending a full day in Siena with Elisabetta, with Tours by Locals. This experience was the highlight of our trip. It was priceless. Let me rephrase this: you would be STUPID not to hire her as your guide. She met us promptly at an agreed on location. She speaks impeccable English, German, and is good at French. She has a warm, bubbly but very intelligent personality. She is extremely knowledgeable.

She deserves more stars! She took us to a cheese farm, a winery and olive/oil farm. All were beautiful. We could never have found these place on our own. They were family owned: the quintessential Tuscan experience! We did not want to be tourists and she ensured that. She previously informed places my daughter was celiac and all accommodated her. That is the special, personal service you get with Elisabetta. Along the way she can tell you all about the country and the sights. She is the best!

I would give more stars if I could! Elisabetta is knowledgeable, experienced and patient. She jokes that she should write a book about the best/worst bathrooms in Florence but she knows her stuff! We were a family of 6 adults. She accommodated all our interests. She knew when a line was short and amended the itinerary to take advantage of what she saw. She expertly took us through museums and the city. We could not have asked for a better or kinder person. Our day in Florence was spectacular!

Elisabetta was outstanding! We began with coffee at a downstairs cafe (under the Ufizzi). We sat 45 minutes on a grassy bluff watching rowers on the river while discussing history, world politics, and what we wanted from our tour. We visited the Ufizzi and went all over Florence. Elisabetta was knowledgeable about the history (and politics) of the abundant art we saw. She introduced us to all-natural granita, which we loved. She is warm and engaging - one of our all-time favorite guides (out of dozens)!

Elisabetta was a fantastic guide. We had only one day in Florence and we were able to see much more, and learn more than we ever would have on our own. She was very attentive to our needs, and worked to make sure we were able to do everything we wanted. Her knowledge of history and art was excellent! We really enjoyed our time with her.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Troy, my pleasure to have you met you and your daughter. Me and you both have got my same walking pace, that's why we were able to accomplish as much. I do hope you had a pleasant drive to Venice! Take care!

Elisabetta's guidance began long before we even arrived for our tour of Siena. We had a couple of options for the day and time of our tour, and her advice was spot on! We arrived in the mid-afternoon, a few days before the famous Palio horse race. Had we stuck to our original plan of coming mid-morning the next day, it would have been hotter and much more crowded. Instead, we enjoyed a much more relaxed, fun and informative afternoon touring the town and benefiting from Elisabetta's expert knowledge.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your review, Kevin. It was a pleasure getting to know you and your wife. Best wishes

Very knowledgable on Florence, where to go and not to go, what is happening within Florence, and knows what to do and where to go when your wife's sandals fail! You will walk a lot, so get those running shoes on and go.....you will not regret it.

We spent a wonderful day walking through Florence, and touring different museums, sites and buildings, including some off the beaten tourist path.

We enjoyed our conversations and tour, highly recommended.

Elisabetta is a valuable resource, and you should try to get a tour with her while in Florence. I am certain it will enrich your experience.

Besides being very knowledgeable (which one expects), she is an intelligent and personable companion for the day, she knows things only a native can know, and (most important for us) she is flexible. Two of us have trouble walking, so she figured how to get us to the main points in Siena, and then a customized tour of Chianti villages and countryside. She also went out of her way to help us find stores to replace a couple of items we had lost on the trip. Outstanding!
