5 Stars Plus for our private tour with Valentina. She guided my wife and I for 6 hours through Academia and Uffeze along with other points of interest in Florence. She was professional, enthusiastic, patient and knew her facts and history. We will recommend her to other Texans who make it to Florence. One of the most enjoyable days we've ever spent in Italy. Ciao , Max & Janet Falls

Valentina was amazing. Of the four tours we had in Italy, hers was far and away the best. Informative, well structured and customized to our family. A great art lesson to art newbies. And the extra suggestions for thee rest of our trip were invaluable.

Valentina took us on a wonderful tour of the outstanding art of Florence. Anyone would be delighted to meet and spend time with this young woman. Aside from being considerate, warm, and welcoming she was full of knowledge about all the art and historical things and places we were seeing. We never felt rushed and she fully took into consiceration our art preferences. This was no rote tour. It was for US!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a pleasure meeting you all! :) thanx for picking me as your guide in Florence!

Exceptional tour. So knowledgeable and informative especially on the Accadamia, Michelangelo, the Uffizi and the Medici influence in Florence. Easy to understand and had a passion for sharing the city of Florence with us. Gave us a great recommendation for lunch and we had the best steak (Florentine style) we've had in years. Many thanks to Valentina.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your beautiful comment! Enjoy the rest of your time in Italy :) Vale

Valentina was a WONDERFUL guide. She took our group of 8 through the Uffizi and Accadamia. She managed to keep us all interested in her knowledge and information regarding the history and art/artists of Florence. We would highly recommend Valentina as a private guide. Without her we would not have gained the wealth of her knowledge and the experience would have been missed.

This tour was AWESOME! Valentina is an amazing guide. She seemed to know everything about everything, answered all of my questions and, more importantly, has a real passion and great love of Florence and its art and architecture. We toured the city and went to the Uffizi and the Accademia. My hotel already arranged for me to have "priority passes," but there was still a long line. Valentina somehow magically managed to get us in both museums in less than five minutes. Highly, highly recommend her!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanx Paula, it was so nice taking you around! You were radiating love for Florence during the entire tour :)

Valentina was awesome! She is so knowledgable of Italian history, architecture, and art. At the same time, she also knew everything about the local markets, restaurants, and hidden gems. She never once looked at the time and was only concerned about making sure that our experience was perfect. After two days of tours with Valentina, we felt like she was a friend.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanx! Please tell the ladies i said hi!

We just completed a tour of the Accademia and the Uffizi Museum in Florence with Valentina. We found Valentina very knowledgeable and personable. She was attuned to our needs and answered our questions without hesitation. Her understanding of art and history and her excellent English language skills combined to bring Florence to life for us. We highly recommend Valentina, an easy five out of five stars.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank youuu! It has been a super pleasure taking you around :) Say hello to everyone!

Valentina, thank you for the tour of Florence. We have had a lot of tours with tours by locals over the years and yours was one of the best. To get three boys ,15,14, and 9, to pay attention in both museums was an accomplishment,(they didn't even fight on the train back to Rome!). We highly recommend Valentina, especially if you have kids or are a novice art admirer. Again thank you.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanx Jeff, it was very nice meeting you all! Have fun in Venice!

Valentina's depth of knowledge was immense. Her descriptions of the treasures at the Accademia and the Uffizi gave me a new perspective on viewing and reading their works of art. One day was not enough so I will return to Firenze to explore more of its history with Valentina!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanx Evette! It has been a pleasure spending the day with you!

What a wonderful morning we spent with Valentina in Florence. She was organized, we walked the city and she provided a truly connected narrative. Valentina was a great story-teller but was also incredibly knowledgeable about art and art history. I felt drawn to the art work she described and my children were very interested in how she exlained how art reflected life. She was quite inspirational and it was fun.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi and thak you so much for your comment, i'm happy to hear you had a good time, it has been a real pleasure taking you around Florence!
