TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Grazie 1000 :D
Cristina gave us an experience in half a day that captured the essence of Florence, its art, history and people. Her energy and enthusiasm kept us enthralled and she managed to understand exactly what was important and of interest to us and she made it so much fun! Her intimate knowledge of Florence was amazing. She constantly kept us engaged as she spoke of often small, obscure details that without her we would have not seen or appreciated. A brilliant experience with a very professional guide!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you dear... it has been a pleasure and you will always be welcome :D grazie!

Cristina was an AWESOME guide! Her intelligence, passion, and enthusiasm were far above and beyond our greatest expectations! While our time was limited because we were visiting from a cruise ship, Cristina had planned our tour, filled with ALL of the sights we requested, with the enthusiasm of a true professional! We visited everything we requested and learned so much about the history of Florence and her passionate insight into the amazing history of the art and architecture of Florence was unsurpassed!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Zonda, these words encourage me and show that maybe I am going to the right direction :D thank you very much and you will be always welcome in Florence!

I was rather disappointed in this tour and debated about giving it 3 stars. Christina did a good tour at the Uffizi, but she was difficult to understand and during the afternoon seemed annoyed when we missed something she said or asked her to repeat. We also spent more than an hour and a half at lunch, not what any of us wanted in a 6-hour day. Despite her many 5-star reviews, I think we did not connect. We have done 20 or so great tours with this company over the years, but this one missed the mark.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your review, I am glad you are the only one that didn’t appreciate my efforts to make you happy. Your opinion among hundreds happy clients it is just a drop in the Ocean but I always have to learn that not everyone is sincere, you could have say... and II could fix any problem or to any of your request. I am the most disappointed as I tried to spend more time with you, even in my lunch break, I am sorry you didn’t appreciate.

The tour with Francesca was great. The tour was well worth the money and Francesca was fun and very knowledgeable. The tour included the highlights of art in Florence. Having a day to tour was perfect. I would definitely take another tour with her. Oh and by the way, you'll find out that Francesca loves dogs :)
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much even if my name is Cristina :D

Christina was a wonderfully friendly , open and knowledgeable. Her grasp on the art we viewed was excellent. My partner normally would not spend a day in museums but he does loves history. Christina was successful in capturing my partners attention throughout our walking tour and visit to two museums. I would recommend this tour with Christina.

Cristina did a wonderful job showing us the highlights in the tour. One cannot see everything in such a short time so was able to focus on the important. We learned a lot and enjoyed our day with Cristina.

We only had an opportunity to do a day trip to Florence and Cristina did a great job being our guide. Her commentary in Uffizi and Academia galleries was very educational and entertaining. She navigated us through the streets effortlessly and zipped us through the timed reservation entrances.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much I am happy we survived the heat :D Grazie !!!

Our tour of Florence with Cristina was outstanding. For our family of 5 (3 teenage boys) Cristina did an excellent job of engaging our boys and we appreciated her focus on the most important points in each of the museums. Her understanding of the art was exceptional and she relayed it in a way that was suitable for the boys as well as my wife and I. My wife appreciated the shopping tips in Florence as well. Thank you.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Mike, you have a wonderful family :D

Cristina appeared to be among the most qualified. She did not disappoint! Her knowledge about everything was very impressive. She was pleasant, funny and accommodating. She quenched our thirst for understanding Florence, art and history of both the city, the current country, and the historic city states and the Roman Empire. Awesome- thanks Cristina!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Laura, thank you very much to you and your family for this feedback, it has been a pleasure grazie 1000

Cristina gave us a true in-depth experience in just 1 day in Florence. She took the time to ask us exactly what we wanted to do and had also pre-arranged tickets for two galleries she knew were "must-sees" during our tour. Even though it was 104° the day we toured, Cristina found creative ways to keep us cool without missing anything. She's a real professional and truly knowledgeable about Florence and Art History. We highly recommend booking her for a tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you dear, that is very nice of you, grazie 1000 :D

Cristina is EXCELLENT and gave us exactly what we wanted for an overview of Florence! We were with our 8 and 5 year old sons, who couldn't appreciate all the art Florence has to offer, but Cristina gave us an efficient tour of both museums that showed us that must-see works, plus the major architecture and sights. Even more, she gave us the context and explained the evolution of European portraits with deep art knowledge. Excellent with our kids and accommodated their needs and our special requests.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: This is very kind of you :D thank you very much!
Erika NormanUnited States
Cristina was an amazing guide for my family. We had such a wonderful day with her and she was funny, intelligent, and knowledgeable. She managed my wacky family of 6 including my mother who had trouble walking around a lot. We got to see everything we wanted, had a fun lunch, and just enjoyed the day. It was a highlight for everyone of our time in Italy.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much, it has been a great day day for me too. Grazieeeee :)
Micki HermansenUnited States
Cristina took us to an area of Florence we had not experienced before. Wow!! The food, the wine, the stories!! This is a great tour if you want to really learn about the food and what regions they're best dishes come from! After the tour we went back and did some shopping at the Mercado and, of course, more eating!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you :D it has been a pleasure, I am happy you’ve enjoyed! GRAZIE

Cristina did an amazing job, we had such a great time with her We only had four hours and had very specific requests, to see the David, Pitti, Palace and the Bobli gardens and she somehow Managed to do that. She kept things interesting without too much detail so even our kids had a great time. She's also very nice and genuine person. Thank you Cristina for a great day!

Laura WoodMaple Ridge, BC, Canada
Cristina is a really great guide who can answer all the questions we came up with thoroughly and from several different points of view. She was very helpful and flexible when our bus into Florence was delayed. Communications were easy and fast. We saw lots of the high points of the city in our one day stop and feel prepared now to plan our two week visit for next year. We will ask Cristina to give us a longer tour for more depth on that visit. Highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank giù certo much IT gas veem a pleasure ��
