Cristina was a pleasure to have as our tour guide and I would definitely recommend her! There were 6 of us and our goal was to hit the many of the main attractions as possible in a short period of time. Cristina had everything organized and we walked right into the Uffizi and Accademia museums passing right by all of the long lines. Cristina educated us on all of the pieces we saw and we loved how she communicated everything to us. Thank you Cristina!

Wow, what a fantastic guide! Cristina is super-knowledgeable, energetic and accommodating. We booked four tours with her as she was the only one able to customize our tours and fit all attractions on our wish list. She was able to keep us engaged for the entire duration and we all came away feeling like we learnt a lot. Our kids loved Cristina as well, and they thoroughly enjoyed touring Florence with her. She even fit in another museum at my daughter's request the day before the tour. Grazie Cristina!

Very knowledgable but way too soft spoken. Did not want to get headsets . Recommend for smaller groups but we had 8.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: You decide not to take headphones, it has been your choice, for me it is exately the same with or without headphones, and they have an extra charge, if you couldn’t hear, you should tell me and we could get headphones inside the museum, as I sayed before we enter. Not say and than complaint it is not fair...

One week ago, we had the pleasure of meeting Cristina at our hotel for our tour. She was very personable, attentive to what we hoped to see, and really knowledgeable. Although this is a very busy tourist time in Florence, she guided us through lovely quiet streets to our destinations all the while explaining the rich history of Florence, and acclimating us to the city. Her tour of he Duomo Museum was amazing, as well. I highly recommend Cristina. She is wonderful!

Cristina is a wonderful guide and we truly enjoyed our time in Florence! The afternoon before our visit, I realized that among all the plans we had made for the day, we had not gotten tickets to see Michelangelo's David at the Accademia. I texted Cristina and she said she would help. Sure enough, she got us right into the exhibit and provided her expert knowledge, despite the fact that the stop was not on our itinerary! Without her, we surely would have missed one of Florence's iconic sights.

We found Cristina a wonderful guide who was fun and friendly and made our tour so much more than if we had gone alone. Off the beaten track was so much fun - we went to local markets, a beautiful leather store in the back streets where we met the owner and purchased two lovely bags, tried some delicious bread from a bakery, saw all the flowers, cheeses, fruits, cakes, meats for sale where locals shop, trattorias where you can get reasonable eats - a wonderful experience - highly recommend Cristina.

Mi esposa y yo pasamos una tarde espectacular con Cristina. Realizamos un tour customizado (Firenze + Uffizi), que se ajustó perfectamente a nuestros intereses y expectativas. Cristina es una guía divertida, experta y entusiasta. Los pequeños detalles que nos comentó en las obras maestras de Uffizi fueron de lo mejor. Fue una especie de profesora de arte/historia que nos hubiera gustado haber tenido en nuestra escuela secundaria; muy apasionada por transmitir el conocimiento, secretos y tesoros de Uffizi.

Cristina's lively and extremely accessible commentary at the Uffizi and the Academia hugely enriched our experience. Having dipped into several art history books over the years, I did have some prior knowledge of the Renaissance, but it took Cristina's expert knowledge to make the works on display come alive. Anyone who chooses Cristina as a guide is in for a real treat!

Christine led us through the Uffizi in the best possible way. Her pacing was perfect, and the art/history she chose for our enjoyment and education was just the right amount. She built our knowledge of the artworks she chose to include in our tour in such a way that she was able to take us step by step through the ages and development of the times, the development of the art, and the artists themselves. If we return to Florence, we would enjoy another gallery visit with her.

Christina is a very charismatic and funny guide and we still quote her from when she told my daughter to cover her shoulders in the Duomo by saying "Ma Scusa, you too sexy !!"

Cristina was the perfect tour guide. Friendly, with a wealth of local knowledge and art history expertise. She tailored both of our 1/2 day tours of Florence perfectly, packing in exactly what we wanted to see and learn about. The information she provided throughout was fascinating and made history come alive as we made our way around Florence. Highly recommended. Thank you Cristina for making our trip to Florence extra special.

Cristina was fantastic. She entertained us with her humor and knew so much about the art and history about Florence and Italy. We had our two teenagers with us and they also enjoyed her humor and charisma. She was flexible , and met us at our hotel so we would not get lost. Fantastic day and guide!!!

Christina was "Over the TOP" great. I arranged a tour for my 15 year old son as I was in a business meeting all day. She bent over backwards to make everything perfect. The meeting, the day, etc. He forgot his ID (she got him into the museum anyway based on her connections alone!). He came back wanting to take ME to the same places and teach me everything she had taught him,with a smile on his face! She instilled a love of Italy and sense of wonder in him...and he said she was very funny! 100% recommend

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you! ;)))

TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: This is a wonderful story - thanks for sharing it! We're glad Christina was able to instill that sense of excitement and wonder in your son.

The Kids and Family tour was quite good. It was at a level that was reasonably informative for the parents while still being fun for the kids. There was a nice surprise at the end for the kids that really wrapped it up well. The walking distance is not very long, so it only covers the central attractions.

Christina was an excellent guide, she wanted us to see all of Florence, the tour was organized, we went against the crowds in most venues, she was fun and very knowledgeable. I have a friend going to Florence in June and have already recommended your company and Christina. I give her 5 stars, she was excellent and made our trip to Florence

We had a great tour with Cristina. We needed to change our time of the tour and Cristina was very flexible. She always responded very quickly via email. We were going to see the David on our own and at the last minute decided to add that to our tour. Cristina was able to get us in, by pulling several favors, without waiting in line. Thanks for a great time in Florence!!

Cristina was an excellent guide and the tour was exactly what we wanted. Cristina was able to provide in depth factual information for the adults (although due to the type of tour I'm sure we only touched on a minute percentage of her vast Florence knowledge) - while our daughters did pick up some of the facts while *loving* the fact that they were on Segways trundling around the narrow streets. All in all a great and original tour which we will always remember.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: GRAZIE! IT HAS BEEN A PLEASURE!

This tour was interesting and we enjoyed it. Cristina took us away from the crowds and along some very interesting back streets. She was full of fun and very knowledgeable. It was well worth taking this tour as there was just the 6 of us and we could ask questions and hear everything she told us. We would recommend this tour as a good way to get an overview of the city. We are not really into art so we did not have to contend with the crowds.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Grazie my friends!!!
