There is so much to see in Florence, so we engaged Laura to introduce us to the city. She was excellent - friendly, fun, knowledgeable, generous [gelati for all], with very good English. I heartily recommend her. Ours was a mixed age group and she managed us perfectly!

Laura picked us up at our apartment. We were 3 adults (very interested in history) and 3 teenagers (not so interested!). It was a difficult task to keep us all happy but Laura managed. She is very knowledgeable and obviously loves her city and can answer all your questions. She also has lovely English, very easy to understand. At the... More

Laura has inspired us with her passion for her city. We highly recommend her as a genuine tour guide. We were with Laura for 2 days and she was such a descriptive and knowledgeable guide around the museums as well as the streets of Florence. She planned a tasting extravaganza through the food markets, personalising our experience by introducing us... More

For the second time in a year I had the great pleasure of taking a private tour with Ismael. The first time in Sept. 2014, I traveled with my daughter and Ismael gave us a brief tour around Florence, very knowledgeable with the descriptions of the Duomo, and all over the cathedral. Also around the squares with all the statues.... More

We spent a great afternoon with Laura showing us all around Florence. She gave us a real understanding of what we were seeing that you just don't get wondering around on your own. The private tour with just three of us was perfect for being able to get the most out of our time in Florence. Laura is a true... More

Laura was our guide in Florence for two days. She is a kind and extremely knowledgeable person and was more than willing to shape the day to suit our various interests. She does know Gelato! I wouldn't hesitate for a moment to engage Laura again if we get back to Florence.

Ismael met my husband and two daughters on the steps of Santa Croce and gave us a fabulous 3 hour tour of some churches in Florence. Being an Art History major who studied in Florence 30 years ago, I was very excited to re-visit some of the places I'd been and enjoy some of its beautiful art and architecture. Ismael's... More

My husband was so excited to visit Florence because it has been a lifetime dream to see The Birth of Venus. I am not as excited about art as he is, but after touring with Ishmael I have found myself looking at art from a whole new perspective. If you are looking for a real expert in art and Florence,...

This is the second time with ismael touring me and my husband through Florence. He is an exceptional guide and gives insights into the sights and sounds of the city that makes one really appreciate all that Florence has to offer - beauty, architecture, fine art, customs, history and great restaurants. We've already begun planning our next trip and will... More
