Gio was great! She communicated with us well before the tour to make sure we knew where to meet, if we needed anything, etc. she arrived early and guided us quickly into the museum. She was great at maneuvering us thru the crowds to get a good view of what it was she was explaining. We were 3 couples with not much knowledge of the art or history of the area. Gio did a fantastic job of explaining what we were seeing, giving us historical context while also making it interesting! Highly recommend!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kindness Susan, I had a great time with you! Hope to meet you again here in Florence!

Giovanna was exceptional- fun, informative, and engaging. We saw so much more in the few hours we had with her that we ever would have seen with a cruise tourgroup. Her knowledge of art and architecture is admirable- her tour of the Uffizi gallery was phenomenal- we had other people just hanging out near us so they could listen to her. Using the private car from the cruise terminal was a little expensive, but well worth it in the time we saved vs using the bus.
Ed SnyderUnited States

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Ed&Gail. Great time spent together!

This was our second time Giovanna, after we go together in 2017. She is easy going and passionate and is willing to customize to meet your needs. Felt more like we were hanging out with a friend. Santa Croce and the cloisters were amazing as expected!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It's been a pleasure to spend time with you and Julia and your friend Emily. Hope to see you again in Florence!

Jennifer SmithUnited States
Giovanna was the PERFECT guide! She is so knowledgeable and we loved hearing the history of this beautiful city while she took us from place to place. She was willing to modify the tour based on our preferences- which is one of the reasons we love tours by locals. The driver was right on time picking us up from the ship and the van was new and comfortable- with great air conditioning! Thank you for a wonderful day in Florence. Wish we had more time with this fantastic guide! Grazie!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your kind words! It was a pleasure to guide you in Florence!

We loved our time with Giovanna, who catered the tour to our wish. We've been to Florence several times and we wanted something a bit more hidden and foodie. Giovanna delivered and our time at the Mercato was divine. She is knowledgable and passionate about Florence and extremely flexible in customizing a tour. Highly recommend and look forward to meeting again!

Giovanna is a wonderful guide. She arranged for us to visit Pisa, purchased our timed tickets to climb to the top of the tower in advance and also arranged for skip the line tickets to see The David in Florence. Giovanna is very friendly and extremely knowledgeable. Her love for Florence is evident at every turn. She was terrific with our kids and made sure they stayed engaged and were having fun. We highly recommend Giovanna to anyone visiting Florence. She is an amazing guide and a fabulous person!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Amy! Thanks for your kind words! it has been a pleasure meeting you and your beautiful family!

We thoroughly enjoyed our pleasant and educational tour with Giovanna. We were very impressed with her knowledge of the history of Florence and Tuscany as well as how that history was shaped by the cultures of greater Europe, Asia and Africa. She was very good at keeping our interest and engaging us in her explanations. Our trip to Florence was greatly enhanced by her expertise and we strongly recommend her tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your feedback! I really liked to show you the Archaeological Museum and the Roman Florence, and I appreciated a lot your interest for the history of our city! Hope to see you again in Florence! Giovanna

Amazing, really knowledgable and passionate about the history and culture of florence, the art, the sculptures, the history of the families that shaped the area, with amazing interest we were told in detail the history of the city and the architecture, all while being filled with details that really made the tour an incredible experience, well done, so great to have someone with such passion and knowledge showing us Firenze.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for spending your time with me! It was a really enjoyable day and I greatly appreciated your thirst for knowledge. I hope you will come back to Florence so that you may experience all the amazing heritage it offers. Arrivederci! Giovanna
Mike SchultzUnited States
What a wonderful tour! Giovanna had a wonderful grasp of the historical background of the city - and brought so many of the sites to life as a result. She met us at our hotel as promised and provided terrific background of the city. She exceeded our agreed upon time by thirty minutes (we asked a lot of questions) without complaint. if possible, do this tour "first thing" and then you can return to the sites and museums that interest you after. Thank you Giovanna!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mike and Laura, it has been such a great time with you. I love curious people and you were so involved in the tour that I felt honored to be your guide! I wish you all the best in your life! Arrivederci!
