My granddaughter and three of her friends all of whom are studying in Rome spent last weekend in Florence. I wanted them to have some basic understanding of what they were seeing so I booked Cheryl to take them on a walking tour of the most important sites and to the Accademia. They loved Cheryl and learned so much. Cheryl brought the Renaissance to life for them and made them eager to learn more. Now my granddaughter loves Florence as much as I do. Mission accomplished!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I'm delighted to know that was the case. Thank you so very much. Spero che ci vediamo presto! Grazie mille!

Cheryl was amazing!!! She really knew her history and we loved everything she had to say. Cheryl was amazing at working with our time constraints and even helped us reserve a restaurant for 9 people at the end of our tour. And then she went above and beyond and checked in on us later that day to make sure we found our way back to meet our transportation okay. We loved meeting Cheryl and definitely recommend everyone use her!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Believe me, it was my pleasure to spend the time with you. Thank you very much for choosing me!

Cheryl is amazing! She is very knowledgeable and fun. Cheryl was extremely patient and kind to our 1.5 year old son who toured with us. Cheryl unlocked the magic of Florence for us and set us up with a reservation at an amazing restaurant. (Also, she knows where to find the best gelato...). We will be back to visit. Thank you again for the best experience.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: And thank YOU both for your review (which I appreciate is in the midst of your traveling!) and for having chosen me to be your guide. You three...and then five...were such a great pleasure to share the city with! Baci.

Cheryl is terrific -- well-informed and high energy. With little advance notice, she met our train and provided a first-rate, whirlwind tour, volunteering time well beyond the scheduled end of the tour. Even after we lost her to her other scheduled commitments, she sent us a series of texts with follow-up suggestions on how we might best spend the balance of our one day in Florence. We enjoyed and appreciated our time with Cheryl and highly recommend her as a guide around Florence.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your wonderful review. The opportunity to meet you and your wife and show you around the city was truly a pleasure.

It's hard to describe the day we had with Cheryl. She was so knowledgeable and informative, and she led us to a new surprise around every corner without giving away the surprise! The day peaked at the breathtaking moment when we saw the statue of David, and ended when Cheryl deposited us at a spectacular restaurant on the Ponte Vecchio. Cheryl spent much more time with us than we had bargained for, and we are just so grateful for our time with her. Thank you Cheryl! George and Daria, Atlanta, GA
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: George and Daria, it was truly a pleasure to show you around Florence and to be a part of this very special trip which will, I'm sure, be followed by many more of the same. Auguri! And grazie mille.
Our group of eight thoroughly enjoyed our walking tour of Florence with Cheryl. She was very knowledgeable and personable. Her insight and background in history and art made our experience in Florence richer! We viewed The David more critically with her enthusiastic preparation. We loved the Gelato and seeing Florence with Cheryl! A pleasure to be with and Cheryl accommodated our schedule and preferences! I would highly recommend this wonderful tour of the Florence with Cheryl! Martha from Canada
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your wonderful review, Martha. It was a great pleasure working with your group! My best regards to all!

Cheryl was the absolute best tour guide plus some. She was extremely knowledgeable of the area and history. She was very personable and patient with our group (16 very excited and sometimes difficult to coral ladies from the US). She took extra time to show us places we may want to visit later, to give us tips on other cities, and to check in by email later to see if we had any other questions. Plus, she took us to the absolute best gelato spot in Florence. Thank you Cheryl!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was absolutely my pleasure, Imani! You ladies were fabulous to spend the day with, so you're very much welcome. :D
