My son (13 years old) and I just spent a half day tour with Laura and we were beyond happy. Laura exposed us to the history and the culture of Florence in such a magical way. The history and art came alive. She was enthusiastic and knowledgeable about everything. It was the best tour I have ever had. I have traveled the world and in 4 hours I learned more about the Renaissance and Florence then I could of imagined. Thank you soooooo much Laura!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Michael and Ben! Thank you so much for your wonderful review! We had fun together and it was a great afternoon! Enjoy Florence in this beautiful day! Take care and best wishes, Laura

Laura was extremely knowledgeable about all things "Florence". Even though we have visited many times in the past, she provided historical context and background that was outstanding. Great guide!!

Words cannot express the pleasure my wife and I had on this historical tour of Florence. Laura met us at our hotel, and was a non-stop tour de force of knowledge on buildings, architecture, art history, and local traditions. Our visit of the Uffizi was exquisite. Laura provided so much detail, so much knowledge! She chose to visit the Basilica de Santa Croce, which was the right decision, as it beautifully complimented our visit to the Uffizi. Ending with a tasty Gellato, the experience was PERFECT!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Bram, I wish to deeply thank you for your wonderful review and the unforgettable day we enjoyed together as friends! Looking forward to meeting you soon again! Best wishes, Laura

Highly recommend! Our tour with Laura was an excellent decision. She expertly steered us through the crowds, lines and chaos on a free museum entry Sunday. We had a fantastic experience with the Uffizi, the Accademia and a walking tour. She expertly managed our time. We found Laura to be very knowledgeable and passionate, sharing her love of Florence and her knowledge of history and art. We also got additional touring, shopping, and dining advice.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Pete, thank you really much for your amazing review, that I really appreciated. Take care and best wishes, Laura

A true master at her craft, one of the best in the business. I've taken private tours all around the world from many different companies and Laura is one of the best. Her knowledge of history is exceptional. Beyond that, she is a really good hearted person and someone you actually enjoy spending time with. I hope to see her again one day.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi David, thank you so much for your great review! I fully enjoyed the morning we spent together and we left as friends. I really hope to meet you again, soon! Have a great vacation and take care!

Laura is not only very knowledgeable and professional, but she is also very passionate about her work. She loves her native city of Florence and can share not only her knowledge of history and art, but also the best places to try gelato and have lunch. :) We are very grateful to Laura for her help and highly recommend her to everyone!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Volf, thank you very much for your review, highly appreciated especially from you, an expert on European art and history. I really enjoyed any single moment of the two tours we had together. Enjoy the south of Italy! Take care and best wishes, Laura

Laura is a fantastic guide and an even better person. Laura provided a super friendly approach with an amazing knowledge of Florence to bring the history of Florence alive for us. My daughter and I both were left with a profound sense of the rich and colorful history of Florence by Laura. We could not imagine a better tour of Florence. Laura not only gave an amazing tour, she also helped us with tickets, restaurants, and other matters beyond our tour with her. Laura = the highest recommendation possible!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Michael, Thank you so much, I was impressed by your great knowledge of the Florentine history It has been a wonderful morning talking and enjoying Florence with friends. Have a great time in the north of Italy! Take care and best wishes, Laura

The half day afternoon tour (3 hrs) with Laura was a wonderful experience across the board. She created the perfect itinerary to include my specific areas of interest (sites focused on the Medici and Michelangelo) and provided valuable advice and direction for me to continue touring on my own. Communication was great (email); Laura was able to accommodate a last minute change in schedule (flight cxl) to ensure we made the most of our time! I was really happy with the tour and all the info Laura provided

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Patti, wonderful was having you in a tour the past Saturday! We covered a lot, but your great interest made my work really easy. Thank you very much for your review and enjoy the wine region today! Take care and best wishes, Laura

So much to see in Florence and a half day to do it but Laura helped us maximize our experience. Her knowledge of the city, culture and evolution were outstanding! Including the best pizza we had in Europe. She described the city origins in a way that we truly felt like we were transported back in time. We loved her enthusiasm and passion for Florence. We hit nearly all of the highlights in 4 short hours and we learned a lot. Thank you Laura!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Chris, Thank you very much for your feedback! Having you and your wonderful kids in a tour was a real pleasure, talking together about art, history and food traditions. We tried to maximize your short time in Florence and we did it! Take care and best wishes to you all! Laura

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of Florence with Laura C. She was was so knowledgeable, friendly & funny. We covered a lot of ground in just a few hours. She treated us to gelato at one of her favorite places. She was so helpful at the end of the tour suggesting additional things for us to explore & places for us to grab a bite to eat. We recommend using Laura for your next tour! Kim & Steve

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Kim and Steve, thank you very much for your review! We really enjoyed each other’s company for the entire tour. I am glad to had the opportunity to see more on your own. Take care and best wishes, Laura

Excellent tour! We are not knowledgeable of or very interested in art, but Laura did a superb job of explaining and really bringing works to life by Pointing out key elements and how the craftsmanship changed in the art over time. She is an art expert, but didn't overwhelm us. It was a 6 hour tour which makes for a long day especially in the heat of summer, but she allowed for plenty of water, gelato and coffee breaks. She was also exceptionally accommodating by working with our complicated schedule.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Kathrine, Thank you so much for your wonderful review! I enjoyed every minute of our tour and we managed to “survive” the heat. Have a great time exploring the Cinque Terre! Take care and best wishes, Laura

One of the best decisions of our trip was to have Laura as a guide. Her knowledge of art and history, her joyful demeanor, and all the secret little spots around Florence she showed us were wonderful! Our 16 and 14 year old daughters really clicked with her as well and were thankful we had her around. Laura took our interests and time constraints into account and made sure to make the absolute most of the time with had with her. We highly recommend Laura!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Barbara, thank you very much for your wonderful review! I really enjoyed spending time with your beautiful and smart daughters! What a great family to share my passion for Florence with! Take care and best wishes, Laura

We really enjoyed this tour with Laura. We have two teenagers who don't usually have long attention span but Laura kept them engaged. We saw the music instruments in the museum of Academia first, a couple of paintings and Michelangelo's David. We walked around the old town and various sites. Laura is very knowledge and we are so happy to have her as our tour guild.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Bin, thank you very much for your quick and unexpected review! I really appreciate it. I am glad that your children enjoyed it as much as you did. Have a great week in Florence and Tuscany! Thanks again! Laura

One of the best experiences I've had in Touring Europe. Laura was great. She is an Art major with a deep knowledge of the town and it's architecture and art. Did I mention that we skipped the line getting in to see David. She was not one of these people that keeps her eye on her watch. Never felt rushed. Thank you Laura.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Kenneth! Thank very much for finding the time to write this review so soon! I really appreciate! I enjoyed spending the afternoon with the four of you. Have a great evening in front of the beautiful fireplace you have! All the best, Laura

Laura C. was our tour guide on May 16th in Florence. She was very well educated on both art and history. She had a wonderful personality and was very gracious to us. She took us to a wonderful place for lunch that we enjoyed very much. Unfortunately, as we had travelled from the US the day before, we had to end the tour at 5pm…just too tired to continue learning. We would give her 5 stars. Karyn Packard

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Karyn and Robert, Thank you very much for your wonderful review. Our day in Florence was special, i enjoyed any moment. Take care! Best wishes, Laura
