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.

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

The hours passed quickly as we wandered all over the main areas and stopped for great coffee, snacks and gelato.

What an amazing tour guide Eliza is. Energetic, Informative and Passionate. We were provided with a customised walk around Florence that showed us many of the expected and several of the unexpected highlights we would have missed if we walked around ourselves. The 'Skip the line' in itself at the Basilica was fantastic, passing the queue that snaked around the building :) A very educational and interesting tour that left us with treasured memories.

Eliza was great about adjusting the tour to our interests/energy level when we met up with her. She's great with kids and my 15 yr old daughter, who was the least enthusiastic about having a tour, ended up connecting with her over art. It made our day in Florence much more enjoyable. I highly recommend hiring Eliza to help get oriented to the city, and get insider tips. She was very responsive to my emails before the trip as well, which I really appreciated.

Eliza was great! One of the best guides we've had. She did a great job of pacing the tour for our family which included a teenager and an 8 year old. She was very relaxed. She was knowledgeable, but didn't fill every minute with information which can get exhausting. She stayed an extra hour with us due to some long lines, which was unexpected. She met us at the train station and even helped us check in our luggage. Great guide!

Eliza met us at our apartment and we walked to the most famous places in Florence: Duomo, Piazza Della Signoria, & Ponte Vecchio.

Eliza is a great representative of the beautiful city go Florence. She was flexible with our request to see certain sites but within a general schedule. At the close of our morning tour she suggested a great trattoria for lunch and even followed up with an email later that day suggesting other great locations to dine. She was wonderful!

Elisa was great. She took her time with us and answered all of our questions. Very knowledgeable and very well spoken in the English language. She made excellent restaurant recommendations also.

Eliza was a wonderful guide. She took us to some out of the way places and provided us with some great stories about Florence. She also accommodated some requests that our group had and was able to get us tickets for a sold out exhibit and get us in quickly! Five Stars for Eliza and the Tours by Locals Company.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you John, I'm glad I managed to take you to the places you wanted to visit and especially to the Accademia Gallery. All my best to all of you. Eliza

Eliza was the best guide we have had in Europe. She met us at our train and helped us store our luggage since we were in Florence for only the day. She was knowledgeable and best of all energetic with a great smile. She was able to guide us around the crowded areas of the city, show us the best gelato place and helped us get tickets to the accademia. We will return to Florence and schedule her tour again..

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Jeff and Lisa, Thank you for the rating. I hope you had a great time in the afternoon. It was a pleasure spending time with you, your lovely wife and your friends. See you next time in Florence. Enjoy your trip to Naples, the Amalfi Coast and Rome. My Best Regards.

My wife and I just had our tour with Eliza yesterday and she was nothing short of exceptional! Her knowledge of Florence extends well beyond the art and architecture as she blends her ~30 years as a resident and great academic credentials together into a "can't miss" experience. Eliza was also amazingly helpful in advance of our trip with planning questions (Firenze card, SIM cards, transportation) and even made some great restaurant suggestions both of which were most enjoyable. Very highly recommended!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Jeff, Thank you for the review and the rating. I hope you had a great time at Saint Mark's Church. All my best to you and your lovely wife. Eliza

Eliza was a very knowledable and gracious guide to her city and very accomodating to our interests and timing as we walked.

Eliza was amazing! We cannot say enough about her. Both my husband and I and our 2 children - ages 8 and 11 - learned a ton AND had a great time seeing Florence with Eliza. She is extremely knowledgeable and engaging. She was able to make the tour attractive to the kids and to the adults at the same time, and explained things in a fascinating way. She also put together a perfect itinerary for us. She is a wonderful guide and a lovely person. We feel truly fortunate to have had her as our guide!!!

Eliza was an excellent guide, I would highly recommend her. She was very knowledgeable and enjoyable to be with too. I would definitely try to use her again, the next time in Florence. I wish every guide were like her.
