Elena was helpful, knowledgeable, and interesting. She took considerable trouble to find out what interested my granddaughter and husband and carefully took us around the Uffizzi, explaining the pictures, architecture, history and context. She also took the trouble to find out where a wheelchair for my husband could be hired which made an enormous difference to the whole visit. She also found other guides to show us the Duomo and Pitti Palace. Her help made the visit extra special for us.

Our tour at the Ufizzi Gallery with Elena was wonderful, a 5 out of 5. Elena was so informative and knowledgeable. She answered all our questions and went above and beyond to make the tour interesting and fun. The tour was the perfect length for our whole group of six people. Five stars all the way.

We thought Elena was a great guide. I was wary of taking 4 kids (aged 12, 11, 9 & 7 years old) to the Uffizi but Elena clearly knew her way around and made a bee line for only the key pieces. She is very knowledgable and kept us all engaged. My 12 year old says that the Uffizi was the highlight of his trip (apart from playing Pokemon of course!)

Elena Tom a "required" cultural visit and made it a living lesson in art and history, with aplomb and grace

Elena was prompt and quickly helped us get through the line. She kept a very small knife of mine to get us through security. When I forgot to ask for it back at the end of the tour, Elena took time out of her busy schedule the next day to get it back to me. The knife has sentimental value and I really appreciated her willingness to help. The tour that she gave really helped me see an historical perspective of the art.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Randy! As I told you, it was easy to bring you back your knife with my fast bike ;-)

Another great day at the museum. Highly knowledgeable with the different pieces. Spent time afterwards to give us more suggestions on places to visit. Never a rush. Thanks again.

Thank you so much for the opportunity to work with Elena. She was very helpful and informative in guiding us through Florence. Her background knowledge of the city was wonderful, giving us lots of details about the city's history and development. Her tour through the Uffizi museum was an amazing experience. She answered questions easily and patiently which was most appreciated. Our family's rating of Elena's tour was definitely 5 stars, she did a remarkable job.

We met with Elena at the Uffizi today and had a wonderful tour. She was well spoken, delivered interesting personal information about the artists we had never heard. She was totally affirming to our observations and was a great listener to our questions. I would choose her again for sure! Wish we were going to be here longer so we could do more tours with her.

Élena is a wonderful, knowledgable well organized guide who made it easy and enjoyable to navigate the crowds at the Uffizi . We spent the whole day with her - Accedmia in the morning and Uffizi in the afternoon. She recommended a wonderful restaurant for lunch between tours, her English is excellent and I would highly recommend her.

Elena was a top notch guide. As my sister was in a wheelchair, she was very careful to address both of us at the same time. Her knowledge,sense of humor and willingness to take a photo of us added to a most delightful tour. We are so pleased that we found Tours By Locals. Please feel free to use this comment.

Elena was a delight.Her knowledge of the Uffizi was amazing. She went out of her way to help us book transportation to Bologna. After our tour she led us to Vivoli for gelato. We never would have found it without her. Many thanks!
