This was our second day with Silvia and she did not disappoint. We decided to change our tour at the last minute and she happily obliged. She was also flexible with regard to the time our tour started, as we were traveling from Siena by train each day. Again, I highly recommend Silvia for tours of Florence, regardless of the itinerary. You can't go wrong.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you again! Best greetings from sunny Florence, Silvia

Our tour guide Silvia was a real delight. Not only did she share her broad knowledge of Florence, but she was very thoughtful in making sure we weren't rushed. She answered all our many questions with detailed explanations. A very welcome characteristic of Silvia was that she related to us personally and took the time to get to know a little about our backgrounds and interests. Tourists who want to get the most out of Florence in a short time should look up Silvia.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Charles, for your kind words. I really loved being with you and your family and am very happy to hear that you enjoyed the time in Florence. Remember biscotti always with vin santo, no coffee to be served with them. All the best Silvia

Silvia was the perfect guide for our family (5 adults). We had only a few hours in Florence and wanted to see as much of the city as possible. Silvia was waiting for us when we arrived and we hit the ground running. Her extensive knowledge of the city and charming personality helped give us a flavor for the beauty of Florence. One of our party was dealing with a foot injury and she even accompanied me to the pharmacist to ensure we had the proper treatment! Highly recommend Silvia's tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your wonderful review. I hope to meet you again in the future, having more time to show the beauty of Florence! Silvia

Silvia provided our family a delightful tour of Florence. So personable and knowledgeable, Silvia made our visit to Florence even more meaningful than we could have imagined. We would highly recommend Silvia for your family as you explore the incredible city of Florence. Be sure to have her take you to the food market - a part of Florence you will not want to miss.

Date: May 3/17

Silvia was a terrific guide . She was very knowledgeable, spoke very clearly in impeccable English and showed us the salient works of art in the Ufizzi. She is very personable and obviously most experienced with tourists. She gave us a very organized and informative, pleasant visit to this huge and wonderful gallery. We recommend her most highly. Thank you Silvia!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much to all of you! It's been a pleasure to be with you and most of all, to be able to show you my "beautiful Uffizi". I hope we'll meet again in Florence, maybe not for a tour but simply for a nice coffee together!

Silvia is a lovely, friendly, knowledgeable and pleasant guide. The tour was very relaxing as she knew all the best routes and places to visit. She was very open to our requests to specialise the tour to take in local food providers for our self catering holiday. We strongly recommend Silvia and would not hesitate to book her again when we return to Florence.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Nicola thank you so much for your kind words! I am happy you enjoyed Florence and also the small food tour, we included while discovering the city. Enjoy Pisa and thank you again!

Silvia arranged a more personal tour for me that fulfilled what I was looking for. I did not want the usual tourist museum/ church tour but a tour of local life showing every day activities and the outlying areas where people lived and worked. She gave me great information on life in Florence, where to shop, and local sights off the beaten tourist pathways. I am now seriously thinking of a move to Florence when I retire.

We asked Silvia for a custom "food tour" which she arranged and we had a great time visiting cheese, balsamic vinegar and salami places with a great lunch in between. Highly recommend!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Mark, for your kind words. It's been a pleasure to organize your tour and to be able to taste everything! I slowly come to appreciate the balsamico, but it has to be 24 years old, no blend, only juniper!

Date: Aug 11/16

We highly recommend this delicious and informative experience with Silvia. We very much enjoyed learning about Olive Oil (especially after seeing the 60-minutes story on olive oil fraud) and learning how to properly taste it and cook with it. Lunch was fantastic and the conversation and time we spent with Silvia will be remembered for a very long time.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you! Look forward to meeting you again!
