Alessandra possesses an incredible wealth of knowledge about the history of Florence. She has a great sense of humor and engages well on numerous topics. I strongly recommend taking any of her tours, as she has added a tremendous depth to our experience and understanding of our favorite city on earth.

Florence for one day from a cruise ship- Alessandra was perfect! She was recommended by personal friends and made a huge difference in our day. Our Priority was the sculpture of David as well as local food, not just tourist items. She arranged for tickets, reserved a nice lunch at the market with wine tasting, we visited sights in Florence, and enjoyed a history discussion as we accompanied her around this beautiful city. We are not history buffs but enjoyed her insights and stories as well as the fact that she knew the local merchants. Our memories of Firenze are wonderful because of her! Thanks so much Alessandra. Delightful day! We highly recommend Alessandra. Todd and Carolyn

It was really interesting and he was so generous to show us Florence through a local’s eyes. We have recommended Bernie over the years and he never disappoints. Great great tour guide.

Shortly after our arrival in Florence, we had a three hour Florence in a Nutshell tour. Our guide Elena was simply outstanding--a lovely person and full of information, especially as we toured the Accademia. She tailored the tour to our interests, and importantly, did not stick to a pre-planned script. She adapted the tour to our interests and questions. We even saw her the next day unexpectedly and she helped us through the line to climb the Duomo. We happily recommend both Florence Guides, and especially Elena, for future guests. Ciao!

My wife and I contacted Florence Guides for a full day private tour and Alessandra came to our aid. She was very professional, knowledgeable and understanding to our wishes. It was very nice to have the one on one discussions about special pieces and the history surrounding them. This is very hard to do when in a large group. If and when we return we will definitely be reaching out to Alessandra and her team for some secrets of Italy!
