“Fantastic tour of l'Academia”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2012 via mobile

My aunt and I had such a good time with Paola. Her tour of L'Academia (David) was informative and entertaining. She answered all our questions, made sure we saw all the important works of art, and we never felt rushed.

Would recommend to any friends visiting.

“A true professional!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2012

Paola provided us with a wealth of information and perspective during the 2 days we spent with her. She offered a menu of options and in addition was open to accommadating any personal interest you may have. Day one was a walking tour that gave us an overall view at the city. Day two was spent at the Ufizzi and Vasari Corridor. Paola did an excellent job sharing her vast knowlegde of the art/history of Florence in a very personal and professional fashion. The perfect guide!

“Knowing Firenze”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2012

We immensely savored the morning walking tour with our guide Corina. Her discussions were very informative and the itinerary was so interesting we forgot that we were on our feet for 3 hours already. It was a great way to start our love affair with Firenze and make us want to go back to explore and learn about the city some more. Corina was passionate about her tour and sensitive to our needs. For those who want to fall in love with Firenze, let Guided Florence Tours help you!

“Planned itineraries”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2012

Paola prepared 2 itineraries for me for my visit to Florence based on themes which I requested - 'The Medicis' and 'Galileo'. With some exchanges between us we were able to arrive at itineraries covering 2 separate days and including visits to well know spots and less well know features. Paola also included places to eat and other items of interest on the way. This is an inexpensive and interesting way to see Florence without being tied to the rigours of a guided tour. I would certainly consider using Paolo again on any furure visit to Florence.

“Excellent guide”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2012

We had 2 tours with Paola. The Accademia and Uffizzi. She was very knowledgable and very helpful. We got the highlights and saw the most pertinent spots of both which is hard to do in the time frame. We would definitely revisit with her.
