One week ago, we had the pleasure of meeting Cristina at our hotel for our tour. She was very personable, attentive to what we hoped to see, and really knowledgeable. Although this is a very busy tourist time in Florence, she guided us through lovely quiet streets to our destinations all the while explaining the rich history of Florence, and acclimating us to the city. Her tour of he Duomo Museum was amazing, as well. I highly recommend Cristina. She is wonderful!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much, it has been a pleasure! Grazie 1000

Mi esposa y yo pasamos una tarde espectacular con Cristina. Realizamos un tour customizado (Firenze + Uffizi), que se ajustó perfectamente a nuestros intereses y expectativas. Cristina es una guía divertida, experta y entusiasta. Los pequeños detalles que nos comentó en las obras maestras de Uffizi fueron de lo mejor. Fue una especie de profesora de arte/historia que nos hubiera gustado haber tenido en nuestra escuela secundaria; muy apasionada por transmitir el conocimiento, secretos y tesoros de Uffizi.

Cristina was a fantastic guide. She gave us a great overview of Florence leaving us with many ideas of what to explore further. She was knowledgeable, funny and energetic. We recommended to her to several other families for other days and they were all happy also. Highly recommend her.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much �� grazie 1000 to all of you

We spent two days, four tours with Cristina. We had an action packed, informative and fun filled two days. We saw everything we had on our list and more. Cristina was flexible to our needs, so had lunch in the middle of the day very comfortably.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank youuuuu

With so much to see in Florence, it was great to have a local guide who knew the town and history well. Christina is a very charismatic and funny guide and we still quote her from when she told my daughter to cover her shoulders in the Duomo by saying "Ma Scusa, you too sexy !!" Great local knowledge and we also thank her for her food places and recommendations which we would not have found on our way own.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: thank you very much ��

Cristina was delightful, knowledgeable and provided a wonderful walking tour of Florence, giving us options to stop and see things in more detail or continue. Her English was excellent. She earned the 5 star rating easily! Thanks, Christina!

We loved our time with Cristina and so appreciated her flexibility when our flight was delayed and we asked to get a later start so our kids could rest up a bit. Cristina was very fun and patient and tailored the tour to what we wanted to see minute by minute. She gave us good advice on how to spend the remainder of our time in Florence and helped us find delicious gelato. Cristina was lovely!

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Cristina!!! She was not only a wealth of information (truly knows so much information about Florence), but she was an absolute pleasure to be with. Her sense of humor and her energy (coffee, coffee, coffee!) made us fall in love with her. We really felt like we were just hanging out with a local who was explaining all the details of wonderful Florence. We booked her for a 2nd tour...she was that good!! Thank you Cristina!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Love love love you and Emilia and Spencer! Grazie! ❤️

Cristina is an enthusiastic, knowledgeable guide. I've never been to Florence and Cristina's morning orientation tour was the perfect overview of the city, giving us time in the afternoon to spend more time in the places we wanted to revisit. Her experience and network got us in to see the Statue of David in record time. More importantly, Cristina provided background and insights that went beyond the guidebooks.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much... I hope to see you again soon ciao!

Cristina took my wife and I on a 3 hour tour in Florence. Cristina was great fun and very knowledgeable. She is great in getting to the front of ticket queues and making sure you get the maximum out of the time available. Taking a personal tour guide maybe a bit expensive but its money well spent, especially when you are visiting somewhere for the first time

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Grazie mille ;)))

Cristina was simply awesome. She accommodated a change in the original scheduled date and gave us a fabulous tour. Her knowledge of Florence is beyond words. Couple that with her great personality and sense of humor and I could not imagine a better guide for my daughter and I. Highly recommended and I will definitely use Cristina the next time I am in Florence. And I will return, the city is spectacular! (I have to mention that her profile pic does not do her justice. This is part of her humor...)

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Grazie darling you will always be welcome in Florence...!

Cristina was the perfect tour guide. Friendly, with a wealth of local knowledge and art history expertise. She tailored both of our 1/2 day tours of Florence perfectly, packing in exactly what we wanted to see and learn about. The information she provided throughout was fascinating and made history come alive as we made our way around Florence. Highly recommended. Thank you Cristina for making our trip to Florence extra special.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very but very much! Grazie

Christina was "Over the TOP" great. I arranged a tour for my 15 year old son as I was in a business meeting all day. She bent over backwards to make everything perfect. The meeting, the day, etc. He forgot his ID (she got him into the museum anyway based on her connections alone!). He came back wanting to take ME to the same places and teach me everything she had taught him,with a smile on his face! She instilled a love of Italy and sense of wonder in him...and he said she was very funny! 100% recommend

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you! ;)))

TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: This is a wonderful story - thanks for sharing it! We're glad Christina was able to instill that sense of excitement and wonder in your son.

We had a great tour with Cristina. We needed to change our time of the tour and Cristina was very flexible. She always responded very quickly via email. We were going to see the David on our own and at the last minute decided to add that to our tour. Cristina was able to get us in, by pulling several favors, without waiting in line. Thanks for a great time in Florence!!
