Wonderful, Wonderful experience with Eliza from start to finish. If you have kids form 8-12 years old (we have 4), Eliza will be your best guide at Florence. Kids walked whole afternoon close to 3 hours under the brutal sun without a word of complaining. She can totally engage with your kids and tailor your tour toward kids and have learn some arts, histories, and interesting thing that only local knows in very interesting and interactive ways. Highly recommend!

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.
Eliza was great! Informative, enthusiastic and considerate of my children's interests and limits. Her English was excellent and the time we spent with her contributed to making Florence one of the favourite and most memorable cities of our holiday. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes on your tour - Florentine's sure know how to walk their cobblestoned town, and you don't want to miss any of it!

Eliza made our visit to Florence a delight! She kept our children engaged and interested through a 4-hour walking tour that also included a visit to the Uffizi. She knew exactly how to make the tour fun and informative for children and parents alike. She is also delightful and her English is perfect. Highly, highly recommend!

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.
Eliza was lovely and friendly and our kids took to her immediately. She even stayed a little longer than required as they were asking so many questions that she was answering patiently. We had a great time. The kids had fun and also learned a lot.

Eliza was a sweet tour guide and made the kids tour of Florence quite fun. It was a perfect mix of keeping the content interrsting for our 10 year old while being informative for our older children ages 13 and 16. It was interactive tour with a stop to watch the paper art at Il Papiro, expressing tasting and a quiz with a prize for our youngest at the end. We also learned how to identify the best gellato shops. Thank you Eliza!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Keith, Thank you for these beautiful words, I'm glad that you adults and Camryn, Meghan and Amanda had a good time in Florence. I hope you will come back one day to visit some other great places in the city I didn't show you this time. A big hug to the girls. Eliza

Great tour, very informative guide. Made it really interesting for our teenage daughter - not always easy to do - thank you. Tour was tailored to our requirements, and local recommendations for eating etc. shared. We had a great morning with Eliza and would heartily recommend her tour for couples or families.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Charlotte, thank you for your great review. It was a pleasure for me to spend the morning with you, Millie and your husband. I hope you enjoyed lunch at the restaurant I took you as well as the visit to Santa Croce Church. All my best! Eliza
Eliza gave a wonderful tour that was engaging for the grown ups and our three children aged 11, 9 and 8 years. The kids were eagerly absorbing all the information and trying to earn points from the pop quiz Eliza had designed for them. The pop quiz was filled with fun facts and activities corresponding with our walk through Florence. They were even reading up after the tour to try to get all the answers! We enjoyed this so much!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Deanna, The tour was fun especially because your children were sooo fantastic and sweet. I was impressed by their knowledge of Greek mythology and Florence’s history, it was really easy to keep them engaged. Thank you for your beautiful words. Eliza

Eliza was friendly, professional, kind and sweet with the children and could not have improved her tour in any way. It was absolutely perfect for us all and we have already recommended Eliza to everyone we have spoken to and will continue to do so. We will also recommend ToursByLocals on TripAdvisor and particularly highlight Eliza! A brilliant brilliant child centered and sensitively put together and led our tour! Thank you!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Rachel for your rating. I hope Iris and Daisy enjoyed the tour. The gelato worked quite well with Iris :-) I also hope your mother is OK by now. Ciao ciao from Florence

This booking was most delightful. Our guide, Eliza, arranged our transportation (Claudio) from Luverne to Florence, and this worked very well. Eliza accomodated our changing desires with good grace. -at one point there were to have been 3 in our party - then 5. She rolled with the punches. And she saw to it that we got to see the highlight of going in to Florence - the David. I would seek her out again on our next trip. Please pass these comments on to Eliza. Thank you.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Lewis, Thank you so much for your review, it was a pleasure to meet you and your family and I hope Jacques still remembers Pinocchio's fascinating "house", he really enjoyed this place in Florence. I wish you all the best. Kind Regards, Eliza
