Tour: #460883, HATFIELD Personalized Private Walking Tour of Florence including Accademia Gallery Visit to See the David, Florence, Tuscany, Italy    view tour
Date: Jan 23/20

My granddaughter and three of her friends all of whom are studying in Rome spent last weekend in Florence. I wanted them to have some basic understanding of what they were seeing so I booked Cheryl to take them on a walking tour of the most important sites and to the Accademia. They loved Cheryl and learned so much. Cheryl brought the Renaissance to life for them and made them eager to learn more. Now my granddaughter loves Florence as much as I do. Mission accomplished!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I'm delighted to know that was the case. Thank you so very much. Spero che ci vediamo presto! Grazie mille!

Cherl was great. She showed around Florence and she showed us all the passion and joy she had for the city. Would definitely book her again.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I'm very appreciative that you took the time while still traveling to rate your tour, Jay. Thank you very much, not only for this, but for having chosen me to be your and Jessica's guide! It was lovely to spend the afternoon with you and I wish you smooth and happy travels for the remainder of your time in Italy and all the best for the holidays.

Cheryl was amazing!!! She really knew her history and we loved everything she had to say. Cheryl was amazing at working with our time constraints and even helped us reserve a restaurant for 9 people at the end of our tour. And then she went above and beyond and checked in on us later that day to make sure we found our way back to meet our transportation okay. We loved meeting Cheryl and definitely recommend everyone use her!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Believe me, it was my pleasure to spend the time with you. Thank you very much for choosing me!

Cheryl is amazing! She is very knowledgeable and fun. Cheryl was extremely patient and kind to our 1.5 year old son who toured with us. Cheryl unlocked the magic of Florence for us and set us up with a reservation at an amazing restaurant. (Also, she knows where to find the best gelato...). We will be back to visit. Thank you again for the best experience.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: And thank YOU both for your review (which I appreciate is in the midst of your traveling!) and for having chosen me to be your guide. You three...and then five...were such a great pleasure to share the city with! Baci.

Date: Oct 18/19

We were a group of 4 who can attest to Cheryl's thorough knowledge and her expertise in her field plus her ability to make the art come alive before your very eyes! Look no further than Cheryl's tour through the Uffizi and the Academia! She was also a "ten star guide" who went beyond of her scope of duties to recommend other venues, restaurants and communicated with us long after the tours end to ensure our visit to Florence was all it could be. She truly is a Florence treasure just being your guide!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for having chosen me and for your wonderful review. It was truly my pleasure to be your guide. :D

Date: Aug 1/19

Cheryl is terrific -- well-informed and high energy. With little advance notice, she met our train and provided a first-rate, whirlwind tour, volunteering time well beyond the scheduled end of the tour. Even after we lost her to her other scheduled commitments, she sent us a series of texts with follow-up suggestions on how we might best spend the balance of our one day in Florence. We enjoyed and appreciated our time with Cheryl and highly recommend her as a guide around Florence.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your wonderful review. The opportunity to meet you and your wife and show you around the city was truly a pleasure.

She was exceedingly knowledgeable of Florence, it's history, both politically as well as different associations with influential families, artists, and religious leaders. She remembers and conveys her knowledge in the context of stories...which I consider to be a gift. Cheryl was truly a pleasure to walk through Florence with. No question that we had went unanswered.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your wonderful review. It was sincerely a delight to spend the afternoon with you and Debbie. Happy anniversary!

Cheryl is fabulous. Super knowledgeable and kid friendly. We had a big group - 4 adults and six kids under age 11. She kept us all occupied and excited, despite dealing with 100 degree heat! Cheryl has my very highest recommendation!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your wonderful review and especially for taking the time to write it during your vacation. All of the kids were an absolute, unequivocal pleasure and definitely a great tribute to their parents! Thank you for having chosen to me to be a part of your holiday.

It's hard to describe the day we had with Cheryl. She was so knowledgeable and informative, and she led us to a new surprise around every corner without giving away the surprise! The day peaked at the breathtaking moment when we saw the statue of David, and ended when Cheryl deposited us at a spectacular restaurant on the Ponte Vecchio. Cheryl spent much more time with us than we had bargained for, and we are just so grateful for our time with her. Thank you Cheryl! George and Daria, Atlanta, GA

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: George and Daria, it was truly a pleasure to show you around Florence and to be a part of this very special trip which will, I'm sure, be followed by many more of the same. Auguri! And grazie mille.

This was our first time to Florence and we booked a two hour walking tour with Cheryl to get a feel of the town. She was very knowledgeable and took us to all the key spots. She also gave a great recommendation for lunch following the tour. The experience was well worth the time and money.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you! It was wonderful to spend the time with you and I truly hope that you'll be back to Florence soon. David said he wants to see you at the Accademia the next time you're here!

Our group of eight thoroughly enjoyed our walking tour of Florence with Cheryl. She was very knowledgeable and personable. Her insight and background in history and art made our experience in Florence richer! We viewed The David more critically with her enthusiastic preparation. We loved the Gelato and seeing Florence with Cheryl! A pleasure to be with and Cheryl accommodated our schedule and preferences! I would highly recommend this wonderful tour of the Florence with Cheryl! Martha from Canada

We were led to a guided visit of Florence by Cheryl. Cheryl has lived for several years in Florence and knows the history of every corner of the city. She is also very familiar with Italian art history. Her knowledge of Florence's past and architecture is very impressive. She gave us extensive information on all the landmarks that she took us to see. that she took us to see. She also offered us many post-visit recommendations on what to see, what to do and where to eat in Florence. She is a superb guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your wonderful review and the privilege of being accorded some of your time in Florence. It was a true pleasure to guide your group.

We enjoyed our tour with Cheryl. We find it very helpful that she used to live in the US as she speaks very good English and is very efficient. She helped us pick our hotel, Hotel Cerretani, which is in the middle of every attraction, shops, great restaurants, and very close to the train station. Even after the tour, she sent us a text to follow up on a few things and places of interests.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your review, Lucia! It was a pleasure to meet you and AJ...and I was glad to see that the weather cleared later in the day.

Cheryl was the absolute best tour guide plus some. She was extremely knowledgeable of the area and history. She was very personable and patient with our group (16 very excited and sometimes difficult to coral ladies from the US). She took extra time to show us places we may want to visit later, to give us tips on other cities, and to check in by email later to see if we had any other questions. Plus, she took us to the absolute best gelato spot in Florence. Thank you Cheryl!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was absolutely my pleasure, Imani! You ladies were fabulous to spend the day with, so you're very much welcome. :D

We found Cheryl to be a great guide in Florence.. she was very accommodating to our groups needs and considerate. Cheryl's knowledge and enthusiasm to show us Florence and some the most interesting features were second to none. She made it interesting for novices and made the history and art in Academia come alive and actually infected us with her enthusiasm. I would certainly recommend Cheryl as an excellent guide to my friends and family.
