Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Giovanna demonstrated deep affection for her native city. Taking us on a tour of the Tuscan countryside, she displayed a vast knowledge of its history, as well as its architecture. She was also well versed in Jewish history during the Middle Ages and leading up to the Renaissance. Giovanna has the ability to see the city through the eyes of a first-time tourist, giving the tour an added flavor of excitement and adventure.

Giovanna is delightful tour guide and offers a wealth of knowledge about the history and architecture of Florence, with a particular perspective of the experience of the Jews who played an important part of the city's history. A visit to Florences' beautiful synagogue is a must for Jewish visitors. Giovanna's enthusiasm for the city made us feel like we were walking around with a friend, and we would recommend this tour to anyone with a Jewish cultural background. I think the tour would be very comfortable for a wide variety of people because it is more of a cultural and artistic point of view rather than a religious point of view.

My wife and I love touring. Every couple of years we choose a city/country and try to book the best private tours, to maximise our time, that can educate us on the history of the place, particularly the Jewish presence throughout the centuries. Giovanna was recommended to us by two different friends who had used her in the past. Easy communication from the get go. Spoke to her from the States through WhatsApp and gave her the days we’ll be in Florence. We told her what we’re looking for (we’re the energetic - wanting to see as much as possible type). She recommended a private walking tour including the magnificent Florence Synagogue followed a trip to Academia and Uffizi (which was done by her colleague Eleonora who was fantastic in her own rite). Giovanna was knowledgeable, engaging, and really passionate about what she does. We learned a lot and saw a ton of things that we could not have possibly seen doing it alone or with any other guides. We were one of the first tours they had after the pandemic and the excitement they had going back to doing what they love to do was certainly palpable. The cherry on top was the free Balagan concert at the Synagogue’s courtyard on Thursday night that we didn’t expect and didn’t plan for! Highly recommended.

I took a private 3 hour tour with Giovanna in October 2021 but forgot to post a review. Highly highly recommended. I reached out to her a week or two before the trip (which was planned at the last second) and she provided a number of options. I ended up meeting with her on my first morning in Florence so her tour was very helpful as a general Florence orientation to set me up for the rest of my visit as well as a fascinating deep dive into the history of Jews in Florence. Many stories, we covered lots of ground, time flew by.

We enjoyed our tour of Jewish Florence with Giovanna. She is a kind and generous guide. She shares her personal knowledge of the Jewish community of Florence going back hundreds of years. She also points out historical facts along the way. The synagogue itself is beautiful and has a lovely museum that Giovanna will help you to appreciate.

Giovanna is extraordinary, she has a wealth of knowledge and passion for her expertise. She continues research of the Jewish community and brings it to light during the tour.

I have toured with Giovanna three times and each time I learn more.

Do not think twice, book her, it will be an enlightenment.

Giovanna is an outstanding tourguide. We highly recommend her. She is very knowledgeable, super-nice, and a real pleasure to work and plan with. She completely enhanced our experience in Florence with insights that brought emotion and meaning into our trip. Bottom line: she is worth every penny.

Giovanna was very accommodating with our tight schedule. She met us at the Synagogue and gave us a lot of excellent history of Florence and the impact on the Jews, from Medieval times to present. She is a treasure to find and listen to. Giovanna was an excellent guide and I would highly recommend her! We all learned a tremendous amount from her.
