Francesco was a wonderful guide - very knowledgeable, personable and flexible. We had a mix up with timing of the tour (our fault not his) and he went out of his way to make the tour fit our new schedule. We highly recommend Francesco and would certainly want to tour again with him when we return to Florence.
What a great tour for 1st timers in Florence. We only had a day to spend around the city and Francesco exceeded our expectations! We saw and learned so much. We would never have found all those sites in the limited time we had. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Thanks for a great day out Francesco. We look forward to booking another tour with you again for our next visit to Florence. Toula, Paul and Alexander.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Toula, Alexander and Paul. Two thank you and one hope :thank you for your beautiful words, thank you for the time I spent with your beautiful family and one hope to meet you in Florence again. All the best, Francesco

Francesco is a knowledgeable and friendly guide. He is articulate with a large English vocabulary to tell the history of the art and sculpture. We went to two locations: the Galleria dell'Academia and the Santa Croce Church where illustrious Italians are buried. We learned many fascinating details about Michelangelo's life and the story of David while viewing the impressive 17-foot David. We also enjoyed a refreshing gelato courtesy of our guide. A memorable tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Laura and thank you Ted; it was such a pleasure to spend that time with passionate , educated art and history lovers like you

Francesco was personable and over qualified. I probably learned more from him than I would from a book. I would travel again just to take another tour from Francesco!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Mary for your beautiful words. I really hope to have the opportunity to guide you again around the sights of Florence

Francesco is very polite, friendly, extremely knowledgeable, and on time. He let us move at our pace, even though we went over our allotted time, and he seemed delighted to answer any questions that we had. He knows the history extremely well, and he shares it in a manner that you can understand. His English is excellent, and our experience in the Uffizi was so much more enhanced by him being there. Thank you Francesco!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Laura, thank you John for your words and your passion with my city. I sincerely enjoyed each minute I spent with you in the Uffizi and I am looking forward to seeing you again, for your eighth experience in Florence. Thanks again, my kindest regards, Francesco
