Five Big Stars to Paola. She was extremely knowledgable in Italian art and my daughters are still talking about all they learned from her about the Botticellis and Michelangelo's David. She also paced it well for all of us and our interest level. Paola was also kind. My dad was sick and needed medicine and that caused some disruption and my teenage daughter wasn't feeling well either. Rather than get upset or frustrated with us, Paola was helpful, gentle and understanding. Excellent communication.

Paola was an outstanding guide! Her knowledge, passion, and sense of humor really made this a wonderful tour for our family. Her expertise in art and history was astounding. She also took us to an excellent gelato shop and even recommended some restaurants, shops, and sites for the rest of our visit. Highly recommend and will hire again on our next Florence visit!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear fantastic Family Fink, many thanks for your wonderful review!! I can't wait to meet again here in Florence! Un abbraccio e a presto!! Paola

Paola was fantastic, she made our experience with tours by locals extraordinary. She is so personable and knowledgeable, our tour was fantastic. It felt like a close friend was guiding us. Her English was extremely easy to understand. I can not recommend her more highly. We feel we were very fortunate to have her as our guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so very much for your wonderful review. It was a pleasure showing you my city and I'm so happy to know that you felt so comfortable with me.
We chose this tour because it promised a focused look at the key elements of the vast Uffizi collection, and we were not disappointed. Paola proved to be a charming and very knowledgeable guide, and she steered us through the throngs at the Uffizi in exactly the way we had hoped would be the case. We were disappointed when our tour ended, as Paola was a pleasure to spend time with. We would recommend her without hesitation, as one of the best guides we have had.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your kind words and for entrusting me with your time in Florence! It was my absolute pleasure to be your guide!

Paola belongs in the Uffizi with all the other treasures of Florence. She was beyond competent in her grasp of art/ architecture/Florence history. We spent the day with her as she took half of our group (36 pre-college students from the US) through the Uffizi and then the entire group through the Accademia. She was an amazing resource for us in every aspect-including finding a good lunch-and we were sad to say goodbye at the end of our time together.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Katrina I have no words to thank you for your absolutely extraordinary review, and please accept my apologies for asking you twice: I had not realized you were still in Europe. Your students were polite, brilliant and curious. Had I more clients as you, my job would be much easier and pleasant. I really hope to see again. Thank you so much Paola
