Wonderful guide. Catherine knows Florence well and was both knowledgeable and personable. She recommended and reserved a restaurant for lunch that was fabulous. Best meal in Italy, like eating at Nonni's! If you are looking to see the sights of Florence she will not disappoint!

Our group of four had a wonderful time with Catherine. We had so much to see in a day and she managed to accomplish so much. She has such tremendous knowledge about Florence, the art and the history. We were so in awe of The David, so much more impressive in person. We managed to work in a visit to Piza as well, which was very important to one member of our group. A couple of us also wanted to shop for leather, before lunch and our inner city tour. She found the perfect place!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thankyou..Wonderful! I'm so pleased you enjoyed the day so much. Look forward to seeing you again. Next time maybe for some wine tasting in Chianti! Enjoy the rest of your cruise. Best wishes to you all, Catherine.

The walking tour of Florence with Cate was nothing short of amazing. She ensure we saw all of the major historical palaces and museum. Her breadth of understanding of artechure and history of Florence really brought the tour to life!! The tour of the Accademia to see the statue of David was spectacular! The best surprise of that tour was getting Cate's personal recommendations for local places to eat and seeing where she studying restoration. Strongly recommend Cate!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thankyou so much..It was a joy for me to share every part of the city with you..As much as we could fit into the time we had. I love Florence! Hope to see you again sometime..To discover even more of the city's great wonders. Happy travelling. Catherine

Our day long tour of Florence with Catherine was fascinating! She would point out an architectural feature, then, through vivid explanation and story, we imagined the people we might have seen there in the past and what they would likely have been doing. At the end of the day, it felt like we'd completed an art history course except that it was so much more exciting because we saw the actual works of art and architecture in front of us. An unforgettable day in one of the most beautiful cities in the world

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi, Thank you so much for writing a wonderful review.I'm so pleased I made your trip to Florence memorable. I love what I do and Florence is what it is.. A great place! Hope to see you all again sometime.. Best wishes Catherine

Catherine gave us an excellent tour of florence. The walking tour was full of anecdotes that could only come from a local, mixing some of the main sights with interesting places off the beaten track, a pit stop in a local coffee shop and finishing in the Galleria accademia. Catherines knowledge is vast and her enthusiasm stimulating. Very professional and also friendly, we came away from the tour invigourated

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi, Thankyou so much. I also really enjoyed you and your family's company.There is so much to learn about Florence's past and the city today & it was wonderful to see how much you were enjoying the tour. Have a great time in the countryside. Best wishes, Catherine

Catherine was a wonderful tour guide. You could see how passionate she is about the place in the way she described the history and the architecture of Florence. She also gave excellent ideas on where to go and what to eat, and showed places that wouldn't usually be in tour guides, but are equally interesting and beautiful. I was left with a deeper appreciation of Florence after the tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Yvette, Thankyou! I'm so pleased you enjoyed the tour.If you come back to Florence again I can show even more. It was lovely to meet you. Best wishes, Catherine

Catherine was probably one of our favorite guides. She was very attentive to the children's questions and kept them fully engaged during the day. She responded to our needs for a quick lunch prior to visiting in Florence. The driver was excellent as well. I highly recommend Catherine.

Catherine took our family, including three teens 18, 16, and 14 on a wonderful tour of Florence. We were looking for a broad tour that would take us through a large portion of the city. We settled on "The Best Walking Tour of Florence". Catherine was very knowledgeable and it was clear that she LOVES what she does. She kept my family engaged and answered our many questions. In addition Catherine recommended two restaurants for dinner and they did not disappoint! I would highly recommend Catherine!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Deanna, Thanks for your great review.I really appreciate it. It was a pleasure to meet you all and show you around Florence .So glad the restaurants were good too. Hope to see you again one day. Best wishes, Catherine

Date: May 29/18

Catherine was a splendid guide on our full day tour of Firenze. Our family group, two couples, was interested in an introduction to the highlights, history, and culture of the City . After meeting at our hotel, Catherine began with a wonderful tour of the Uffizi, followed by a walk across the Ponte Vecchio, some highlights and lunch on the south side of the Arno, and then through the old Roman city to a visit to the Accademia (the David). Knowledgeable & cheerful, it was like touring with an old friend

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Tim, Thankyou for your great feedback. I too remember the day well.. My very best wishes to you,Mary & Nancy & Mike when you next see them. See you..next time. Catherine
