Daniela is a highly professional and informative guide. Communication by email prior to our arrival was excellent. She gave us a very interesting and detailed tour of the three islands with a lot of detail about the villa on Isola Bella. We enjoyed our lunch on Fisherman's Island and the peaceful walk on Isola Madre - Would be even more awesome in the spring when bursting with flowers in bloom.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Katherine and Bernie, thank you so much for your kind words. It was my pleasure meeting you, guiding you and answering all your questions! I see that you are safely back in Denver. All the best to you. Daniela

Daniela was an outstanding tour guide who I would highly recommend. She was fun and informative and helped tailor the day to exactly what we wanted. I was traveling with my two 70-year-old parents and she made great suggestions to accommodate their mobility and physical capabilities. She also helped us to avoid the crowds as much as possible. I have been to many countries and done many private tours and Daniela is top notch!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello! I thank you so much for your feedback on the tour we had together. It was a great pleasure for me to meet the three of you, I was quite impressed by your knowledge and your interest in Italian history and culture! It's easy to be a good guide with such great guests like you! I wish you all the best in your lives and I hope to meet you again. Daniela

Daniela was a wonderful tour guide! We thoroughly enjoyed spending the day with her! We did a half day tour of Isola Bella and Isola Pescatori. Her commentary on Isola Pescatori made this touristy little island much more interesting. The highlight was the Palazzo on Isola Bella. What a magnificent place! We learned so much from Daniela that we wouldn't have known on our own. She had suggested we go in the afternoon and that wa perfect, as the morning crowds were gone. Great day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Nancy and Phil, thank you so much for this review! I was so happy that I could arrange a tour for you, responding to your needs and limited time. My profession allows me to meet such wonderful people as you are, I hope we can stay in touch. Enjoy the rest of your stay in Piedmont. I hope you will use Tours by Locals in the future, now that you've discovered it. A big hug, Daniela P.S. ... Where are the 5 extra stars? ;-)))))))))

Very informative but straight to the point. Daniela gave us a tour of the Boromean Islands. She arranged for a private boat transfer which made the day flow flawlessly. Her English is perfect and we had a great time. At the end of the tour she gave us ideas of what to do next. Overall a great tour guide. Highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Hilda, thank you so much for your rating and feedback, that is so important for me. I spent a wonderful day with you and all the family, your kids are so nice and well-behaved! I hope to see you again. Have a good winter. Daniela

Daniela is a wonderful guide. She knows the Borromeo Islands extremely well having grown up in the area and brings this knowledge and background to life in her explanations of what you are seeing. The tour itself is very surprising given some of the hidden and special things Daniela will show you. I highly recommend her and this tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Edd, many many thanks for your comment! Hope to see you again. Daniela
