My guests wrote about Florence and the Uffizi Tour:
Eliza was fabulous. Knowledgeable, friendly, and able to engage and keep the interest of two teenagers, while making sure we saw not only the important historical sights of Florence, but also the best gelato shops and a really good place for Florentine Steak. Highly recommended.
Eliza is an excellent guide who is knowledgeable, responsive, helpful and efficient. Apart from that, she is also a friendly, smiling,charming and enthusiastic lady who treats visitors not simply as guests but friends. Most importantly, she guides tours with heart and dedication who delivers more than you request. Hiring Eliza as your tour guide will be your best decision when visiting Florence!
Eliza knows Florence in and out. She is a lovely person, very knowledgable, and we had a fantastic day with her. It was a relaxing, yet informative walk with a very enjoyable gelato stop. Her knowledge of art, history, architecture, and Florentine culture is superb. Thanks Eliza!
Eliza is a natural born (true) storyteller. She was a captivating tour guide and took us on an amazing day through Florence. We hit all the high spots and some that were off the beaten path. We cannot recommend her highly enough. Thank you, Eliza for a terrific day!
We took a day trip to Florence with our family of 5 (3 young adults). We wanted to get the most out of the day and decided on a guided tour. This is the best thing we could have done. We were very fortunate to find Eliza as a guide. She did an excellent job of showing us around, keeping all family members engaged, and making the most of our one day trip. Her knowledge of art and history is impressive. We did a tour of the Uffizi and Acc. She added so much. She is very bright and fun.
You couldn't ask for a better guide than Eliza! She is gracious, knowledgeable, and professional! She is very well versed on world issues, and made talking to her like talking to an old friend! Her tours thru the 2 major museums brought history and art alive by looking at the highlights of the museums. Her flexibility and familiarity with the area made the tour go very smoothly. After using 5 guides in Europe, we actually still miss Eliza, and would absolutely use her again for more sites in Florence!
