Laura was Excellent, again! We had a group of 15. Laura was prompt & immediately took command of our group & made us feel that she was 1 of us! Her knowledge of not only the subject matter, but, other ancillary facts was impressive. Every person in our group was appreciate of the fantastic time Laura provided. Well Done!

We were lucky to have Laura guide us through the Pitti Palace and Boboli Gardens in Florence. She was a delight ! Laura was very professional, informative, engaging and excited about her tour. We would definitely schedule a tour with her again when we are visiting Italy! Thank you Laura for a wonderful introduction to Florence!

5-Star Plus rating for the magnificent walking tour of Florence with Laura G. We so enjoyed Laura's ability to bring the soul of Florence to life via her knowledge of history and art, and her wonderful story telling. After spending a half day with Laura we felt as if Florence had become our home. The pace was perfect. We did not try to cover too much territory. Sometimes less is more. We stopped for a light lunch and enjoyed getting to know Laura more personally. A must do on your first day in Florence.

Laura is: highly intelligent, personable, conscientious, and extremely knowledgeable about the history of Florence and its incredible culture. We booked Laura for two successive days, and could not have been more pleased.

Laura is not only very knowledgable, but knows how to pass that knowledge on to her clients. She is passionate about Florence and it's history and makes it come alive. She is also very considerate of her clients needs. She knows how to avoid or negotiate the always present your groups and finds the best viewing positions. All in all a very enjoyable two morning tours. Thank you again, Laura.

Laura delivered a brilliant tour and pitched it just right. Her educational background shone through - she really knows her stuff. Her delivery was also really good. We ranged across the eras of Italian history seamlessly Laura's love of her subject and Italy shines through. I will be recommending Laura to friends

Laura was simply phenomenal! Her knowledge of art history and of Florence was exceptional! Laura was extremely accommodating. We had a limited number of hours in Florence as we were there for just over 24 hours. Laura provided nuggets of information that made the tour all the more interesting. Laura also provided her card with contact information to our oldest daughter who will be studying in Florence in the near future. In our family's opinion, Laura is the choice for touring Florence! Thank you!
Norman BrooksUnited States
Our family fell in love with Laura from the moment we met her. We spent three fabulous days exploring Florence and wished it could have been three weeks. Laura is articulate, knowledgeable, informative and conveys her love for the city in every word. All three days were amazing but our time together in the Uffizi was extraordinary. Laura was also very flexible and kind. I wish I could give Laura a ten star rating rather than just five stars. Florence is a jewel and Laura made it that much brighter.

Very nice, knowledgeable and great at knowing the side streets to avoid the crowds. Appreciated her flexibility at tailoring the tour to meet our timeline and specific interests.

Laura served as our guide to Florence on a three-hour tour. We set up our meeting at a convenient location where our family of 7 (ages 15-72)met her after we parked our van in a local parking garage. She was very informative as we walked from one great attraction to another always adding excellent background information especially on the powerful families and patrons of Florentine development over time. As an expatriate from the USA she demonstrated a great deal of knowledge of Florence.

My wife and I were very pleased with Laura. Laura is very knowledgeable, easy going and just a nice person to be around. I would highly recommend her to anyone.
Valerie RoweUnited States
Laura is pleasant and extremely well versed with art and the historical facts of Florence. Unfortunately I think I booked the wrong tour. It was more like a class lesson with a lot of detail and we didn't seem to get any of the "fun facts or local flavor" of Florence. Unless our questions were directly related to the topic she was explaining we couldn't seem to get local information. Again, I don't blame her, what was described in the tour was exactly what we got almost to the letter.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Valerie, I'm sorry that the tour wasn't what you had in mind. It's true, my tours are really full of art and history, but I'm sorry we didn't get on the same wave length: I would have lighten up my talk and tried to be more fun and talk about life in Florence. I hope you did enjoy some of it anyway.

My husband and I didn't allow nearly enough time in Florence.Once we started our tours with Laura we wish we had at least another day or two. Laura is any excellent guide. She has an extraordinary knowledge of the city, it's history and its art. She entwines all these elements to produce a continuing story as you walk about the city. I highly recommend Laura as a tour guide. We enjoyed our time with her and learned an enormous amount about Florence.
Linda CurranUnited States
My friend and, I loved our tour with Laura. I don't think there was any question we posed that she couldn't answer. Her tour with us was casual but, professional. We were amazed at everything she could tell us about the places we visited and, also didn't visit but, walked by. All of the names, dates, etc. Laura is really a wonderful guide and, made our tour very enjoyable for sure.
Barry MetcalfUnited States
Laura is a very knowledgable guide ... This tour was excellent for understanding a brief history of Florence. I would recommend this tour if you are short on time, but would encourage more detailed tours with Laura as her knowledge is so deep that we were only able to scratch the surface. We will certainly book again the next time we are in Florence.
Jodie RayUnited States
Laura gave an excellent tour, full of information and special insights. It exceeded our expectations and we enjoyed it immensely.
June KaplowUnited States
Laura was extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of florence history, architecture, and art. The tour gave us great overview of the beginnings and evolution of florence into the city it is today. The content of the tour was excellent but the day was very cold and it may have been better to have spent less time standing out and more time walking or getting coffee and continuing the chat inside to break up the frigid weather- it was a little hard to concentrate but of course this is only a recommendation
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your positive comments and good suggestion. I did want to show you as much as possible, but indeed it was cold that day and a nice break in the middle of the tour would have been welcome. sorry.
