We only had one day in Florence and Laura took us around. She was so delightful and understanding of the limitations the older guests in our group. She was full of knowledge of the art and history of the beautiful city! She naturally found aspects of the city to appeal to each of us from 76 years old to 14 years old! She had a talents for building up the next stop on our tour and then presenting it and allowing us time to just simply enjoy! I have already recommended her to others.

Laura learned of what our family had wanted in a tour and she tailored the tour beyond our expectations. She exceeded, delivered and presented an educational enthusiastic Academia and walking tour. Please consider Laura for your family's tour she will have you think about the time of creation, the political and cultural environment, the tools and material and how the community interpreted the piece of art. The tour of the Baptistry was breathtaking for us now, and she had us imagine the residents.

If I could give Laura a ten star review, I would. She guided my wife and me, along with another couple friends of ours, on a tour of Florence this past May. She was extremely knowledgeable, listened to our requests, and provided a day that will be with us forever. When we needed to alter our plans she accommodated, made suggestions and showed us fascinating parts of the city we never would have found on our own. We could not be happier with our time with Laura and recommend her with enthusiasm!

This was our second tour with Laura. Again it was excellent! She went above and beyond showing us sites and areas we had not seen our first visit to Florence. Our love of Florence is due the knowledge and experience we had on our tours! I highly recommend Laura. She is an expert in art and history.

We hired Laura to take us on a walking tour of Florence while visiting Italy this summer. Laura was a superb tour guide! Her English was perfect, of course, (growing up in the USA) and she was able to give us a wealth of information about the history of many of the famous painters, sculptors and etc. while walking thru the Accademia, Duomo and a few other historical sites. If you are looking for a high quality tour, she is the one! We HIGHLY recommend her! My teenage son learned a lot also! She's GREAT

Laura took my family and art students on a wonderful tour of Florence.She was so knowledgeable about the history and art work in this beautiful city. She took us through churches, museums, shops, bridges, piazzas, and neighborhoods.It was delightful listening to her stories about the artists of Florence. She spent extra time with us, stopping often, as it was difficult for some of my family members to walk through the city. I highly recommend touring Florence with Laura!

Laura is an art history expert. She was unbelievably helpful and caring with my elderly Mother finding streets that were wheelchair friendly (as much as one can in Florence). My family, particularly my mother, still raves about the knowledge we learned everywhere we went. The narrative and dialogue were always so engaging. Our Academia Gallery visit was perfect. Laura gave us insight into the art such that it was experienced not just viewed. I cannot praise this tour enough!!

We cannot possibly thank Laura enough for the arrangements she made, her insights and her expertise. Her efforts made our trip to Lucca the highlight of our vacation. She absolutely went out of her way to make this a perfect excursion --never rushing us and always making sure of our interests. Her knowledge of the area and its history is phenomenal and what could be better than an art history expert in Florence! We intend to return to Italy and use her services again. She is a gem!!!

Laura's awesome tour was a highlight of our trip! She is friendly and professional, and does a great job of customizing her tour to the interests of the group. Laura walked us through Florence, talking about the politics and social events of the Medieval and Renaissance periods, while showing us many works of art and architecture and explaining how they are significant to what was happening in society. It was fun and fascinating! Laura also told us where we could go to eat and drink off the tourist track.

We enjoyed our tour with Laura. The amount of art and architecture to see in Florence is overwhelming, however she was able to pick out the most important things for us to see. It was a very nice combination of museums and walking tour. Lots of details for those who wanted them, and certainly a sense of awe at seeing the 'David' sculpture, and the Birth of Venus.

Laura is an excellent guide. We went out with her in Florence and had a great day. We had three small children with us which made it difficult but she was patient and understanding. She's knowledgeable, a good conversationalist and pleasant to be around.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you and all the best to you and your family,Laura
