Mila was a lovely, energetic, organized, and informative guide. Our group four adults all had an interest in history, art, and culture, but not a great depth of knowledge. Mila's descriptions brought it all together so that during our brief time in Florence every site and piece of artwork had relevance and we were able to appreciate each one in a meaningful way. Mila ushered us through the crowds and was especially considerate of our daughter-in-law who is expecting a baby in 3 months. Thank you, Mila!
We have a very insightful and informative tour of the highlights of Florence. Mila gave us tons of practical information to allow us to maximize the limited time we had in the city. She very knowledgeable, affable and flexible; well equipped and expertly organised. She has a strong network among the industry people in Florence and that certainly helps save time during the tour. Highly recommended!
My mother and I were visiting Florence for the first time and had a lovely tour with Mila. She was very sweet and knowledgeable about art history and Florence history. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi! I am so happy to hear you enjoyed the tour in Florence! For me, it was wonderful to spend some time with you and I wish you all the best.

Mila was very knowledgeable. She takes the time to technically explain the art and tell its story. There were 8 of us and she was very patient, almost effortlessly getting us to where we needed to go. If your time in Florence is limited and you want to see the artistic highlights this is the tour dor you. Thanks Mila!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for your words! It was a real pleasure for me to be your tour guide and I hope you enjoyed the rest of your holiday. All the best! Mila

Our entire family loved our time with Mila, we told her we wanted to hit all the highlights in Florence and we did. She has a ton of energy and vast knowledge of art history, and she made it very engaging for our 10 year old son. We felt like this investment in a private tour guide was well worth it for our short time in Florence.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much. It was a true pleasure for me to meet you all and I really hope to see you again in the next future. All the best!

We did the city walking tour with Mila. It included the academia gallery, Duomo, important piazzas and of course the Uffitzi museum. She was super nice, on time, very very passionate about her work, super knowledgeable in art history, very accomedating and she never made us feel rushed for a second. She made sure that we enjoy her city and have the best experience ever. She also offered us great recommendations for other sightseeing, shopping and dining experiences.
Michael WohlUnited States
Mila was very knowledgeable, interesting, fluent in English,and very accommodating. I would have no hesitation in recommending her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot. I hope you had a pleasant travel to Venice and you found some nice thing for your wonderful Baby! Have a lovely day.
Very knowledgeable guide who involved our 12 year old son quite well. This was a very worthwhile 4 hour tour of Florence - exactly what we wanted. Thanks Mila.
Four of us enjoyed a delightful tour, seeing many of the highlights of Florence. Mila gives a passionate presentation and shows great knowledge and understanding of the art treasures found in the Uffizi and Florence. She was generous with her time and expertise and we thoroughly enjoyed our Tours By locals visit with her. She was punctual and made it easy to arrange our meeting location. We highly recommend Mila.

Nell TaylorUnited States
Mila is a sweet and very knowledgeable tour guide. We toured Florence with her, and she was extremely accommodating since the tour was to take place in the morning and we did not arrive until afternoon. She took us all around the city and through the major museums and the Duomo. She was extremely interesting and we had a wonderful time and we learned so much with her!
Tracy BeckwithUnited States
Mila was a fantastic guide in Florence. She was friendly with museum staff and was able to deftly negotiate the lines. She was flexible, allowing us to stop for coffee and adjust the tour. Her city and monument knowledge was excellent, but it was as if we toured the art museums with a professor of art history. Mila was able to give us detailed information including composition, symbolism, political influences and how artists' personalities played a role in their works.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for your words! I was really happy to meet you and spend some time together. And with all my heart I hope to see you again in the next future. All the best!
Jennifer A.United States
Mila was our first experience with TBL, and she couldn't have been a better representative. With just one day in Florence, we wanted to cram as much as we could into our short time. Mila met us at the train station, adjusted her schedule to meet ours, and proceeded to give us a thorough and well-constructed tour of the highlights of Florence. She is not only delightful personally, but extremely knowledgable about Florentine history, art and architecture. We really enjoyed her, and recommend her highly.
Kevin GillilandUnited States
Mila was fantastic as our guide. Not only did she show us all the highlights she also gave a historical view of Florence that was unsurpassed
Brian SingerUnited States
Mila provided a informative and interesting and fun overview of the most important sites in Florence. Even though we have visited many of the same sites before, Mila was able to give us even more perspective and history. A visit to Florence without this overview would not be as interesting and fun.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot for your feedback! I hope you come back once more here, so that we can meet again. All the best!
Jill MahrFallbrook, CA, United States
Mila was great. She took us around the city and explained everything in great detail. She has great passion for the art & culture of the city, you can tell by the way she spoke about it.
Carol BridgeUnited States
Mila was an EXCELLENT tour guide. My family of 4 (19 and 22 year old daughters) toured the Academia and Uffizi, and saw many of the highlights of Florence over the course of 7 hours with Mila. She was so knowledgeable about the artists and the politics that inpired much of the art and architcture of this beautiful city. We were so impressedwith her depth of knowledge and attention to detail. Mila was very professional, funny, charming, and efficient with our time. Outstanding service!
Leanne MalhiotCalgary, AB - ALBERTA, Canada
We would give Mila a ten out of ten, she was fantastic! Very kind to our 9 year old daughter.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for your feedback! Your daughter was so lovely and behaved in a fantastic way! I am more than happy to hear you enjoyed the tour and hope to see you again. I wish you all the best!
Richard BrooksUnited States
Mila was terrific! We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with her and recommend her to anyone interested in Florence art. We visited the Accademia, Uffizi Gallery, and the Duomo. Her knowledge of the art we saw is extensive and she described it very well. She also pointed out several other interesting landmarks during our tour and made very good suggestions for lunch. Our only regret is we didn't have more time to spend with her. Great Job.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for your feedback! It was fantastic to meet you and spend some hours together. I really hope you come back here in the future and I wish you all the best for your lives. Let's keep in touch!
Ma. Victoria PangilinanPhilippines
mila was wonderful. however we were not reminded that the kids should have their IDs with them to get a significant discount. She went out of her way to speak with the ticket lady, but the kids were not accommodated. We ended up having to pay the full price for 4 children/students (aged 15 and 14)-
Diane GumpelUnited States
Mila was great. Met us on time, pointed out incidentals of interest while walking from one attraction to another, giving us the "flavors" of Florence culture. Very knowledgable about Florentine history and art. Made our one day in Florence very memorable.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: That's very kind from you. Thanks a lot for your feedback. I really hope to see you again and I wish you all the best!
Sherry FrandleUnited States
Milas was a great guide! She gave the four of us an informative and candid tour of Florence today and we thoroughly enjoyed her company. We highly recommend her!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much! It was a great pleasure for me to spend some hours with you. Please, contact me if you need some information during your holiday. Enjoy your stay at Impruneta! I wish you all the best!
Mila was very knowledgeable, and did a wonderful job of sharing her knowledge. We had asked her to tailor the tour to accommodate an impossible age spread ... from 10 to 74. She made a valiant effort, and we appreciated it very much. However, the even though the day was hot, and the children lost interest fairly early on, Mika continued. The adults appreciated her efforts very much ... the children not so much.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am sorry your kids didn't enjoy the tour. By the way, I hope you had a very pleasant holiday in Italy. I wish you all the best!
Sallie LottUnited States
Mila was prompt, very helpful and very knowledgeable. She made our visit to Florence more enjoyable.

Her knowledge of paintings and the history of paintings was amazing. Will never look at paintings the same way.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot! It was a pleasure to meet you and I hope to see you again. I wish you all the best!
Mila is a wonderful guide who knows and loves italian art and culture. She has excellent communication skills which made every stop in all pieces of art a moment of magic. We could have spent much more time and still felt that it wasn't enough!
Virginia PuseyUnited States
We were thrilled by the excellent tour that Mila provided for us in Florence. She is well informed in both art history and Italian history and explained both to us with enthusiasm. Rating: excellent.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for your words and your kindness! It was a privilege for me to show you the best of Florence. I really hope to meet you again, soon. My best regards.

Our wonderful guide, Mila, brought the arts and sites of Florence alive for us!

Julia HartUnited States
Without Mila the David and the Slaves would have meant nothing to us. Mila brought them to life. At the Uffizi she taught us art appreciation from the 11th century up to the Time of Michaelanglo. She was a WONDERFUL teacher. Both my husband and I loved her and her teaching. We started our tour with Michaelanglo's David and finished with him and his Holy Family at the Uffizi.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your comment! It was fantastic to meet you and I hope to see you again, here in Florence. I wish you all the best. Kind regards.
Andrew TorelliUnited States
Mila is very knowledgeable but probably too detailed for our grandkids ages 11 and 13.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I wished to show you the best of my town. I am sorry I was too detailed.
Antonella AlbanoUnited States
My stepdaughter and I took a private tour of Florence with Mila in September of 2012. Despite our limited time, Mila made sure we wouldn't miss the highlights of the city. She was very knowleadgeable and professional and we thoroughly enjoyed her company and guidance.
