AMAZING WAY TO SEE Florence! Our 14 year daughter Sophia just started taking photography lessons and she learned so much from Stefano to really capture the best photos of Florence. To be patient and wait for the right light. His knowledge of Florence and his storytelling were top notch. Highly recommend him!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot Marina for your review. It has been a great pleasure for me telling you Florentine stories from the Middle Ages and in the same time helping you and Sophia learning how to take the best photos of Florence. Stefano

Stefano was an amazing guide! His knowledge of the sites is excellent! He was able to answer our many questions as well. I highly recommend Stefano for any tour of Florence!

Stefano picked us up at our hotel and drove us in his own car to the Medici Villas. We had never been to any of these villas before and were very impressed with the 3 choices he made. As we had been in Florence many times before, we were looking for places that would be unusual for a tourist to visit. Stefano definitely delivered!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Many thanks.

We were not as pleased with this tour as the other two Stefano had arranged. For starters, he met us at a designated location and then proceeded to walk us through back streets for 45 minutes without telling us anything about where we were or what we were seeing. We should have met at the first destination, saving us 45 minutes of walking in an uninteresting area and, of course, we had to pay for this as it was part of the 3 hour tour. We really had a 2 hour guided tour, not the 3 hours we had paid for.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Many thanks for your comments. We met at Porta Romana because it was closer to your hotel and easier for you to find; we went first to Cestello because this church closes before the other ones; but on our way we could see also very interesting places, like the house of Filippo Lippi; please let me also remind you we had to stop 15 minutes at the pharmacy... It's not true we spent most of the time sitting at the Brancacci Chapel, this was after 20 min of explanations, because I wanted you to rest 5 minutes

Excellent tour! We had been to Florence many times before, so asked Stefano to arrange a tour that would take us to places 'off the beaten path' that we had probably never been to before. That is exactly what he did and we were extremely pleased with his selection.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Many thanks.

Stefano took my husband, myself and 2 friends to Cortona,Arezzo, Siena, San Gimignano and the Medici Villas in 2 &1/2 days. We had a great time. Stefano is extremely knowledgeable & informative in all the areas we visited. He was fun to be with and having two "senior"women with him quickly found out how to find bathrooms at every stop��. He was courteous, flexible to our needs and just an all around nice guy. If you are traveling thru Tuscany and Florence And hire Stefano as your guide you won't be sorry

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a great pleasures for me to make you, Norman and your friends discover some of my favourite spots of Tuscany. You are very kind and educated people and it was very pleasant to spend 2 and a half days and talk with you about art, culture, history but also any other topics. I would definitely love to work with you again whenever you decide to come back to Tuscany.

Date: Apr 12/18

Stefano T is a very well educated guide who speaks english clearly (and 5 other languages). He has degrees in history and art history, and is well versed in Italian art. He is patient, personable, and flexible. Our group of 4 was an hour late for a 2-hour tour because of a freeway accident, and he was gracious in accommodating us. His descriptions of works in the Uffizi provided a needed context. He told entertaining stories. He fielded all kinds of questions, and really was knowledgeable about Italy.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Sandra for your feed-back. It has been a great pleasure for me to make discover the Uffizi Gallery to such educated and kind people like you. I will be more than glad to work with you again if you decide to come back to Tuscany.
