Date: Oct 10/19

We had an informative and professional tour experience with Karine, it was being with a friend who knows and showed not only the museums we booked, but the hidden bistros and markets while showing us other points of interest. She took the time to show us the restaurant we have reservations at and the way back to our hotel. We loved her and our tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I loved to be with you today. Thank you for your warm and interested presence.

Date: Sep 13/19

Karine was one of the most informative and passionate guides we have found in italy todate. We did a Pisa walking tour that whilst not a lot of area was covered the information on the monuments we we visited kept us interested at all times. We could have expanded the walking tour into pisa central but we found we had brain "overload" so opted for a drink and chat option instead. Karine has a Passion and knowledge for her profession that is commendable.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Terry, Thank you very much for your feedback, very important for me. You are the best traveller in this 2019 year for me, you go slowly, taking care to the details and with the desire to know the people and not only the beautiful monuments we have. It has been a pleasure to exchange our opinion in front of a fresh orange juice! Enjoy your time in Italy! Karine.

Karine had to deal with three tired travelers. We had just arrived from Venice and had walked many miles the previous day. She tailored the tour to our needs. She is knowledgeable, caring and very informative. We were also, besides seeing the Uffizi, able to do a walking tour of some of the city for an excellent overview. She did a a very good job. We had to tell her we were not art students and so details were not our thing. She knows it all however if that's your thing.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Dorothy and daughters... it is thank to you that we had a wonderful time together because you told me exactly what you wanted and Florence is so full of different attractions that it was easy to find what was made for you. I appreciate a lot the customers who tell me who they are (and who they are not...) and what they want. It's wasy for me to build my tour. I wish you a fantastic time in Pompei! Karine.

Excellent tour and Karine met us at the train station and provided us with transport for our tour. Excellent itinerary that accommodated our wish to visit San Miniato post Pisa. Karine is an excellent guide with a huge depth of knowledge on her historical topics. She also has excellent knowledge of the areas we visited - included the vocals in the Baptism building, plus the organ in the Cathedral + a visit to the cemetery that is only open on specific days. Karine also helped us book a meal and cab.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Suzanne, thank you for having choosing me, it was a pleasure to guide you in Pisa and San Miniato. I hope you have a nice souvenir of my country, and of the truffles of course! Kindest regards. Karine.

Karine was lovely and gave us a tour worthy of a couple of credits from a university. Her talk and explanations of what we were experiencing as well as history was very broad, detailed, and articulate. Can't imagine Seeing Florence without her guidance.

Outstanding tour guide. She was extremely knowledgeable about the entire area we toured. She knew how to handle a larger group (12 of us) and be efficient so we got a complete day. Her English was excellent. I will have Karine guide us in the future if we return to the area and will highly recommend her to my friends. It was a great day.

Karine was a wonderful tour guide. She arranged bike riding tour around the walls of Lucca and took us to a wonderful restaurant for lunch. Karine's knowledge of Lucca and Pisa is vast and exciting. You can tell how much she loves history and sharing it with others. Karine had transportation ready and it flowed smoothly allowing us never to have to wait long. She also took us to a great gelato spot and helped us navigate the area when we needed a rest or a bathroom break. She was a great tour guide!

Karine is a fantastic tour guide. She has a lot of knowledge of the history of Pisa and Florence. It wasn't easy handling a 10 party tour with 2 wheel chairs but she did a fantastic job. We had a fantastic time with her. From the pickup to the drop off, she made sure that we were comfortable, safe and filled with history and knowledge. We booked her privately for one of our shore excursions on the Disney Magic Mediterranean tour and it was perfect. Don't hesitate to book her.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Lance, how beautiful was that day with your family and you. You were all very careful with me and my explanations, precised and so interested, you are very kind. I hope to see you again, because customers like you and your family are rare on a cruise ship.

We had a wonderful tour experience at the Uffizi Museum with Karine. Karine did a wonderful job of setting us up with background history of Florence and the museum itself in the very beginning. She was so knowledgeable and passionate about Florentine history and art. She also kept our eighth grade daughter actively engaged during the entire length of our tour. We hope to return to Florence and the Uffizi again, and we would happily tour with Karine again.

Karine was very nice and extremely knowledgeable, but several times throughout the tour, we felt like we were being stalled. As if we needed to "fill the time", before we could move on to the next destination.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mary Jo, I'm sorry if you felt stalled. It is more a problem for me to tell to my customers all I want to tell and show them in only three hours, than trying to fill this short time I have at my disposal. Florence is so full of treasures that I select my itinerary and the monuments to show according to your interests. Perhaps I didn't understood yours. Sorry again. My best regards. Karine

Karine was flexible and accommodating to our rather fluid travel plans. She made it easy to travel around an unknown city through her guidance and even helped us purchase train tickets and store our luggage. Her knowledge and expertise was evident as we toured Pisa and she "told the story" of this remarkable city and its history. We had heard that Pisa was a few hours max visit and she enriched our experience. I am so grateful to the friends that have used tours by locals and recommended we try it.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Susan, it was such a pleasure to be your personal tour leader during this half day in PIsa, that too many people visit too superficially, and fortunately you stopped and listen the fabulous medieval symbology of Pisa, sharing it with your friends. Thank you very much for that.
