Karine was one of the most informative and passionate guides we have found in italy todate. We did a Pisa walking tour that whilst not a lot of area was covered the information on the monuments we we visited kept us interested at all times. We could have expanded the walking tour into pisa central but we found we had brain "overload" so opted for a drink and chat option instead. Karine has a Passion and knowledge for her profession that is commendable.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Terry, Thank you very much for your feedback, very important for me. You are the best traveller in this 2019 year for me, you go slowly, taking care to the details and with the desire to know the people and not only the beautiful monuments we have. It has been a pleasure to exchange our opinion in front of a fresh orange juice! Enjoy your time in Italy! Karine.

A memorable tour from the bell tower to medieval Pisa. Why the tower leans and how Pisa is keeping it safe. Karine shares all the history.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Oh Shellye, thank you so much for your rate. I hope you are enjoying the sales in Lucca :-) ....

Excellent tour and Karine met us at the train station and provided us with transport for our tour. Excellent itinerary that accommodated our wish to visit San Miniato post Pisa. Karine is an excellent guide with a huge depth of knowledge on her historical topics. She also has excellent knowledge of the areas we visited - included the vocals in the Baptism building, plus the organ in the Cathedral + a visit to the cemetery that is only open on specific days. Karine also helped us book a meal and cab.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Suzanne, thank you for having choosing me, it was a pleasure to guide you in Pisa and San Miniato. I hope you have a nice souvenir of my country, and of the truffles of course! Kindest regards. Karine.

Today we toured both Pisa and Lucca with Karine. We would definitely give her a 5 star rating She was flexible for our needs. Karine gave us a very informative tour of Pisa and her biking tour of Lucca was fabulous! Her knowledge of the history was excellent and she told an wonderful story of the area to help you understand the current day. Thank you Karine! Earl and Judy Yager and the rest if the gang.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Earl and the gang, I was so proud you chose me to be your guide in Lucca and Pisa on tours by Locals website, because you are not the usual travelers. Visiting Italy for 38 days is absolutely unique and genial! I hope you will have a lot of fun in our beautiful country, and I wish to all the gang and especially to you, my favourite tour operator, all my best wishes! Karine.
We had a wonderful day in Pisa thanks to Karine. Karine walked us through the different isles and history of Pisa, with her deep knowledge and love for the city, its wonders, history and great stories we went back in time and enjoyed an amazing tour. Thank you Karine
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Udi, You and your wife were already educated in some knowledge, so it has been very easy to trasmit some notions you already have inside of you. You are a very nice couple and I wish you all the best. Thank you very much. Grazie! Karine.
Vanessa GonzalezUnited States
Karine, was wonderful! We had an amazing time with her. She is very knowledgeable. Our 12yr old son really enjoy the Pisa tour. Great city. I would definitely recommend Karine to anyone.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Vanessa, this tour of Pisa with you 3 was a pleasure. You are fantastic parents for your son, amazing. He is certianly in advance for his age, but you are giving him all the opportunities to be someone really special. I hope to meet you and him one day, and I'm sure that day he will teach me plenty of things... Thank you very much. Karine.
Karine was flexible and accommodating to our rather fluid travel plans. She made it easy to travel around an unknown city through her guidance and even helped us purchase train tickets and store our luggage. Her knowledge and expertise was evident as we toured Pisa and she "told the story" of this remarkable city and its history. We had heard that Pisa was a few hours max visit and she enriched our experience. I am so grateful to the friends that have used tours by locals and recommended we try it.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Susan, it was such a pleasure to be your personal tour leader during this half day in PIsa, that too many people visit too superficially, and fortunately you stopped and listen the fabulous medieval symbology of Pisa, sharing it with your friends. Thank you very much for that.

Fabulous tour by a very talented guide who knows the history and architecture of this fabled area. She is also a gifted linguist. I was always well cared for and comfortable, and enjoyed talking with Karine during our tour. Her mature confidence and knowledge were superb, and I especially appreciated her arranging the elegant private transport for me from port to Pisa for our private tour. I saw everything I wanted to see and learned plenty in the process. Superb tour and great day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Andrea...what can I say after all your beautiful words? You are so sweet and delightful, it has been such a pleasure to be your guide. I forwarded to Andrea your private driver all the beautiful thinkgs you said for him and he thanks you very much. I wish you plenty of splendid trip and why not, let's meet again in Tuscany. Au revoir, pas Adieu. Karine.
