My mother and I had a wonderful morning with Eliza in Florence. We enjoyed her personal touches that only a local guide can provide. She took the time to assess what was best to do with her and what we could do on our own. She helped us find a nice spot for lunch and of course, gelato. We highly recommend a tour with Eliza.

I would highly recommend Eliza as a tour guide. Very knowledgeable and was flexible enough to listen to what we wanted to do and see on this tour. Timing was perfect, we even ate at a local restaurant and indulged in a local gelato place. We saw a lot in one day and made it back to our cruise ship with time to spare. Thank you again, Ginger, Kathy, Kelly, and Alicia.

It was a wonderful way to see this amazing city. We did not want our time with her to end. Eliza also recommended a fabulous restaurant for lunch and gave us tips on shopping and museums to visit.

Eliza was a wonderful guide, and we thoroughly enjoyed our tour. Our goal was to see the main sights, while learning some local culture - and we hoped for some things that were not in a Rick S video. Eliza was spot on in meeting our goals. She was very responsive to any requests that we had, and we very much appreciate her knowledge of Florence. She also - as an extra bonus - pointed out her favorite restaurants and gelato places, which we appreciated. At the end of the tour, she set us up for lunch

Our tour was an adult tour covering the highlights of Firenze to help us get oriented to best use our time in Firenze. As with most vistors, there is more to see than the available time will allow. The walking tour covered most of the major sites and allowed us to decide which we wanted to come back to and explore in more detail. We realize our tour was not what was advertised but Eliza adjusted the tour to meet our desires. She is very knowledgeable and was an outstanding guide.

Excellent guide and tour! Eliza is terrific; she listened to us and gave us great input about what we wanted to see and do! She also took care to walk quite slowly for us (senior citizens)! Although we walked 6+ miles we were not terribly over tired and appreciated her great knowledge on everything we saw! We learned a great deal and would use Eliza again in a minute! We thank her for the wonderful idea to go up to Michaelangelo Square; took some great pictures and had a glass of wine to wind down the day

Eliza is a highly professional and knowledgeable tour guide of Florence. She knows the museums, the sculptures and paintings well and adds interesting comments about the lives and times of the artists. She knows how to make the most of the day by homing in on the most significant works of art. This tour covers a lot in one day. To see these famous works up close is a treasure. Eliza knows how to navigate the museums and avoid the lines. She is a joy to be with.

Eliza was absolutely wonderful with our boys, ages 9 and 11. She kept the tour interesting for adults but fun for the kids in making it a small "competition" to find certain things on the tour. I learned a lot on the tour, which ended up lasting almost 3 hours because we were so involved in the parts of the tour, like marble paper making and eating gelato. I would highly recommend her to any family.

We left the Uffizi with a comprehensive understanding of the progress of art and understanding about the history of Florence and the Medici family.

My family spent a fantastic day with Eliza, touring the highlights of Florence. It was a wonderful start to our Italy vacation. She was knowledgeable of course,... but she seemed like one of our close friends instead of a 'tour guide'. She went out of her way, spending extra time with us , and also showing us some out of the way places ( or hidden gems ) of Florence. We went back to her suggested Gelato place every night we were in Florence. Just truly a great time with a very lovely lady, thanks again.

Teenage boys are difficult to win over but she had video game and pop culture references to keep it interesting. We did several guided tours through Italy and this was by far the best.

Eliza was fantastic on our 6 hour Florence tour. Her energy level and knowledge were great. She was very strong at balancing the scope and pace of the tour to ensure we saw the most important parts of Florence, while considering the tolerance levels of my three teen-aged boys to see "yet another" church or painting or sculpture. She also did a great job knowing when to take breaks for a snack or drink. I highly recommend her, and this tour, to anybody who has less than a day in Florence.

We had one day to see Pisa and chose Eliza to show her town to us, and what a great choice! She met us at the train station and we walked through town and saw some places that we would have otherwise missed. We did visit the cathedral and tower (and made the climb, which is worth the view), but there is more to the town. Not to mention what our family unanimously agreed was the best gelato we had in two weeks of taste testing in Italy! She was great with our 9 and 13 year old, kept them interested :)

She provided us with a lovely authentic experience with many insightful unexpected tidbits of information. Since we had visited area many times before it was important for us to receive an experience we did not previously have and she did exactly that. She knew the answer to every question no matter how trivial. We enjoyed this tour emencly!

If you are coming to Florence, this is a must tour. In 5 trips to Europe, and experience with 30-40 tour guides, Eliza is the best we have had. She is personable, well informed, and speaks perfect English. I cannot recommend her highly enough!

A tour of Florence, the Ufizzi and the Accademia all in one day sounds like a tall order, but Eliza was up to the task. She did an excellent job of giving us the essentials while going into the detail we needed to fully appreciate what we were seeing. She is extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic and was very flexible in adapting the program to our needs. Thank you, Eliza!

Eliza was a wonderful tour guide to Florence and tailored the tour for our needs. She added coffee, lunch and shopping times at our request. Eliza's wide knowledge of the art and museums of Florence impressed us; she was able to show us the highlights of the museums while relating details about the art without making us feel rushed. The four of us highly recommend Eliza and also our terrific driver who picked us up at the cruise ship.

Eliza was very personable and extremely knowledgeable of Florence. Always willing to answer any questions. Due to mobility limitations, my sister could not participate in most of our tour. Eliza went the extra yard to obtain a mobile service which provided my sister with the means to see a number of the major sights. Eliza was also willing to provide suggested tips for shopping and dining. No hesitation in recommending her to all.

Five of us female friends had fun during our walk with Eliza. She was prompt, and very passionate about her craft. She showed rich knowledge and though she got to share a lot about Florence's culture, food and history, she did it in a calm and casual pace.

Eliza was wonderful. She had great knowledge of the history and unique stories for all the sites we visited. She was very agreeable to altering her tour to fit our schedule. She also led us to two of the best meals we had our entire trip with her lunch recommendations at the conclusion of our tours! Outstanding, would recommend to anyone and use again in a heartbeat.

Our rating is FIVE stars because Eliza was wonderful in every way. She was extremely knowledgable and imparted a wealth of information. She also is warm, kind and good spirited. She was able to provide us with exactly what we requested - packing in quite a bit to our 5 hour tour while creating an even, relaxed pace. She knew just what to highlight and what to avoid. Eliza also speaks perfect English and she helped us with our ailing Italian :)

Eliza was an incredible tour guide. She has great enthusiasm, and her passion for the history and artistic relics around Florence was infectious. She answered our questions and kept a lively pace as we toured the sites and then tasted the bites, including great wine, cheese, truffles and gelato. It was telling that at the end of a full day together my kids were sad that she was leaving us!

Eliza is SUPERB! She dealt with a medical problem within our group with delicacy, intelligence and acumen beyond her years. The "tour" itself was also indeed the best I have ever gotten from a guide. She had to re-arrange things for us and she did it without a blink in her deameanor or her knowledge of the city. As one of my group said "can we take her home with us"? Gail Biondi

We had a most wonderful 8 day tour with Eliza. She met us at our hotel and we went from there to see all the sites we had agreed upon. We were traveling with our 13 year old grandson and she kept him engaged and interested as we toured the Uffizi and saw many of the city's most famous sites. She was most considerate of our wishes, the pace we wanted to go at (we stopped for lunch, gelato ) and was just a pleasure to be with aside from being so knowledgeable and answering whatever questions we had.

We all enjoyed her stories behind the art, architecture and people of the city. She even helped us find a water polo ball for the kids at the end of the day! She is a kind and special guide that I would highly recommend to anyone booking a tour. Grazie!

Eliza is a wonderful guide for the Florence-Pisa area and she was very engaging and flexible for our family group of 9, ranging in ages from 12 to 80! Her in-depth knowledge of art, architecture, history, geography, and politics kept our attention! And she knows where the best gelato shops are! I mentioned she was flexible - she is VERY flexible, adjusting our tour just before and during our day with her. This made a huge difference for our diverse group. I highly recommend Eliza for your touring!
