Thank you Paola! You did a great job and listened to what our family needed and didn't need at the time of our travels - my boys were a little over touring (13/16) when we arrived in Florence and you made it short and sweet and kept it moving. The restaurant that you recommended / walked us to (the one next to the fountain) maybe it was called the fountain was my husbands favourite wild boar ragu he has ever had!! Thank you!!!

Paola did an excellent job tailoring the day to the groups pace and interests. She also went above and beyond scope of the tour to help us with other travel related issues while we were in Florence.

Paola was absolutely fabulous! She was punctual, polite, helpful, accommodating, & amazingly knowledgeable! We (2 adults, kids 16,14,11) loved spending the day with her & felt like we learned so much from the moment we stepped into her van, which was sparkling clean and the microphone was perfect. Paola answered all of our questions & made sure we had the best time! She helped set up & give suggestions for other fun opportunities while still in Florence. I HIGHLY recommend Paola for any tour! Awesome!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I enjoyed your 3 big boys and your test at the end was awasome, they will remember all they have learned today for sure!

Paola was very knowledgeable and informative. Unfortunately, the tour was too long for our three young grandchildren and we were not able to go to the last shop ( the gold artisan).

Tour: Artisans and workshops in Florence, Florence, Tuscany, Italy
Date: May 28/18

Paola met us at our apartment and showed us things that as tourists we would never have found on our own. The highlight of the trip was the visit to the mosaic workshop. If we had known about her prior to our trip we would have booked Paola for additional tours.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Vern I am glad to hear you enjoyed the artisan tours, our craftsmen are very special people with a lot of passion.

Tour: Pisa San Gimignano & Siena, Florence, Tuscany, Italy
Date: Apr 4/18

Paola was an amazing guide! We had the most incredible day touring Pisa/san giminano And Sienna. We went to a small family owned vineyard and the wine tasting and lunch was delicious. Paola was extremely knowledgeable and a true pleasure to be with. It was great to see store owners in each town greet her with so much love. Myself, My husband and 3 kids had a blast and I highly recommend Paola for any tour in Florence! 10 ⭐️ 's!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hillary grazie for your nice feedback, it was pouring raining but the sun was inside us!

Tour: #400687, Florence full day tour with Accademia & Uffizi gallery, Florence, Tuscany, Italy    view tour
Date: Mar 20/18

Paola is an excellent guide. She curated Florence for us deftly, steering us from church to market to palazzo to museums. Her tours of the Accademia and the Uffizi were simply superb. She uses time very well, conveying information efficiently along the way. Good choices on lunch and a cafe for hot chocolate at the end of the day. She also does tours of villas and gardens in the Florentine countryside, and we look forward to doing that with her in some warmer time. Many thanks

Tour: Palazzo Vecchio and the Uffizi Gallery Guided tour, Florence, Tuscany, Italy
Date: Mar 17/18

Wow, wow, wow! On our second tour with Paola, we visited the Uffizi gallery. She also gave us a customized tour of the Palazzo Vecchio. Both tours were simply fantastic. On our tour of the Uffizi, Paola continued to impress us with her wealth of historical knowledge and context. I would take detours to galleries I wanted to see, and she was well versed on nearly every piece of artwork we saw. She knows exactly how to help you make the most of your time in Florence. See Palazzo Vecchio if you have time!

Tour: Everything about the Duomo, Florence, Tuscany, Italy
Date: Mar 15/18

My husband, and I had the pleasure of taking two separate tours with Paola. This tour, the one that focused on the Duomo, was the first tour we took with her. I was expecting that in 3 hours, we would get a good tour of the Duomo itself, including the Dome, but thanks to Paola, we got to see so much more. She showed us around the museum, the dome, the nave, the baptistry and then took us over to see the Medici Palace nearby. She let us set the pace, and was a wealth of helpful information. Fantastic!
