The short tour of Florence was very informative, good fun and well paced for a group of about twenty of us. It took in most of the sights between Ponte Vecchio and the Accademia. Angelo brought new life to places visited many times before, by providing historical context in a fun way. I am called David and the highlight of the trip was Angelo's passion for Michelangelo's David - you will have to take one of his guided tours to discover the secrets and meaning of this beautiful statue. When Angelo finished, I thought David was going to step down and greet us!

Angelo Alterio is such an amazing tour guide and loved every second of the tour of Florence. So much history in one place and Angelo covered so much of it. He is so passionate about what he does and the history of Florence so become so involved with it all. From the Ponte Vecchio to the Statue of David. Thoroughly enjoyed it all and what he had to say about it. Would definitely recommend to any one to go and get on a tour with Angelo.
Many thanks from England,

We highly recommend the first-class, fascinating, entertaining, enlightening tour of Florence - given by Angelo Alterio. (email address: disangelo@gmail.com]. Angelo kept us engaged and fascinated for the entire day. We were able to see the highlights of the Uffizi and the Accademia Galleries, and the main Florence sights in several hours, and we learned so much through Angelo's expertise and comfortable style. Angelo's knowledge of Florence, art, history and archaeology was truly impressive! I highly recommend a 1/2 day or full tour with Angelo to make your Florence experience the best it can possibly be!

We only had one day in Florence and a private tour with Angelo Alterio was the perfect way to maximize our time. This was a walking tour of the city center from an Italian's point of view which made us feel like "locals" and not tourists. It is evident that Angelo is passionate about his work and his knowledge about art is impressive. The highlight of our day was the personalized tour of the Uffizi Gallery which is the best way to experience this extraordinary collection of masterpieces. At the end of the day Angelo personally walked us back to the train station to ensure we didn't get lost and made sure we got on the right train back to Rome. Now that's my idea of great service!! Grazie Angelo.

We have just returned to Canada from a Princess Cruise which offered an excursion in Florence titled 'Florence/Pisa/Statue of David. I have never taken the time to send any feedback on any of our tours in the past and we have been on over 15 cruises around the world. We were so impressed with the professionalism of Angelo Alterio as our guide on this tour that I felt compelled to tell someone involved how good he is. Angelo was without a doubt the best guide we encounteed on this trip and may be the best we have had on any of our tours.
He is polite, knowledgable, passionate about his work, speaks clearly, has a sense of humour, and an employee any company should be proud to have on board. I hope we have an opportunity to work with him again in the future. We had some hiccups on this trip but Angelo and this tour will be fondly remembered.
