My family of 4 with two high school age boys spent 2 days with Veronica in Florence and it was a great experience. We got so much more out of our time by spending it with an experienced guide. Vero relates well to the youngsters and they really enjoyed the tours. She even made the art museum part of the tours entertaining for them. If you are visiting Florence a tour with Vero is a must, book with confidence! You will be glad you did.

I chose Veronica after communicating with several guides doing tours for kids because of her concept of engaging the five senses. She brought marble for the kids to touch to show them what the Duomo was made of, used photos from the iPad to help explain, and had a blind tasting of gelato. Highlight was a paper marbling experience for an extra charge. Our kids were 6, 10, 11 and it was 95 degrees so they were flailing at end but she did an admirable job in a not easy situation. Highly recommend

Veronica was fantastic! Great energy and very knowledgeable. Having Veronica to guide us (group of 6) through some crowds made everything more pleasant, and gave everything we looked at more relevance. We had a good look at the Uffizi and then toured a bit and had lunch before we went on to the Accademia. She found us a great spot for lunch and also directed us to some special shops where true craft was going on. Thanks to Veronica we were able to pack a lot in to our short stay in Florence.

Veronica is an excellent guide that bubbles with energy and enthusiasm, sharing her knowledge with so much love of the subject. In our tour at the Academia, David was the star but Veronica made him and Michelangelo spring to life. Take this hour and half tour, and if you can get Veronica you won't be disappointed!

Veronica made our day in Florence perfect! We asked her to do the impossible - we were visiting from a cruise, had about 5-hours, and wanted to see both the Academy and Uffizi museums. In addition we hoped to tour important parts of the city. Veronica did exactly as we asked and more - walked us through the city, street food for lunch, skipped the line at both museums. On top of this she is an absolute expert on the art and history of Florence. She walked us back to the train station.

Veronica was fantastic. We have three young boys (13, 9, and 5) and she did a fantastic job keeping it interesting for them and engaging them in the entire tour with questions and taking an interest in their comments and questions.

We did the tour with Veronica on sat 20th October and it was fantastic - she used the history of the Medici family as the linking theme which on a walk from the Medici Palace to the Pitti palace is perfect - so a great mixture of people stories, history, buildings , pointing out all the interesting things that you miss walking around unguided ! Vero's English is excellent and she was charming - all our family group loved the tour many thanks to her

Veronica was wonderful. She was right on time, easily picked us out of the crowd and gave us a most informative overview of the Uffizi. The depth of her knowledge was impressive and her warm personality was evident. She even helped us find a good gelato place when we were done. A great experience.

When you travel to historical cities with a 10 and 14 year old, you need tour guides that keep them engaged and interested! Veronica did exactly that. Her English was perfection and she did a fantastic job covering the highlights of the Duomo and Accademia. We truly appreciated learning more about Michel Angelo and his works including the David. Highly recommend her for ANY tour as her energy and personality are just right. She also gave us a great recommendation for lunch which was fantastic!

Veronica is an amazing and artful storyteller. We only had one full day in Florence and I asked her to customize a full day tour so we could get to know the highlights of the city center. She did that and much more with fun facts and curiosities I didn't see or read in popular guide books. She booked a wonderful restaurant for lunch at my request and then took us to a fantastic gelato place where we returned to that night. Super friendly, engaging, overall wonderful person!

Veronica was a delight! Her enthusiasm coupled with her in depth knowledge of her home town was invaluable to us. Our group of 4 had just arrived in Florence the night before our tour. Veronica helped us get out bearings, provide insightful comments about the sights and was so much FUN to be with! Truly a 5 star experience!

Veronica was on time meeting us at our hotel. We strolled around the city for hours and Veronica was a walking Encyclopedia of Florence. Answering all possible questions related to history, commerce and architecture. We got a perfect start to our visit and got excellent advice on local restaurants with local food away from tourists. Veronica is also a walking smile making our tour equally pleasant.

Veronica was amazing . We went to see David but ended up spending almost 4.5 hrs with her and had a great tour of Florence. Her command on history of the region is amazing , she also took us to some craft shops which are only found in Florence . We had 3 kids and they really enjoyed it too. Highly recommend her .
