Eliza was an amazing guide. She is incredibly knowledgeable as well as being a lovely human being. We learned quite a bit from her and as this was my husband's first visit, it really set a wonderful tone for the rest of our time in Florence. I highly recommend her walking tour. It was 3 hours and covered everything we wanted to see. We went back to several sites she showed us for a more in-depth visit on our own. She also gave us some excellent restaurant recommendations.

We asked Eliza to help us plan a private walking tour for the first day of our Florence based vacation (Aug 16th). Our goal was to plan a tour that would give us an introduction to the city and see unique, off the beaten path sites. Our group included my son and daughter (ages 21 and 18) and our daughter's best friend (aged 18). From the time she met us at our hotel, Eliza did an amazing job of showing us the best that Florence has to offer. As we wove through the city, clinging to the shady sides of the streets to mitigate the 95 degree heat, Eliza helped us avoid or stay one step ahead of the throngs of cruise ship/tour bus masses. Eliza's ability to convey her deep knowledge of of the city's history and culture, with a sense of humor and to a level of detail that matched our interests, made for the perfect tour. At the end of the tour we wished Eliza could be our guide at the remainder of destinations. If you are going to Florence, scheduling a tour with Eliza is a must. She's the best.

What a wonderful experience! Eliza is a delightful, highly educated guide full of interesting anecdotes. At our request, she tailored an off-the-beaten track walking tour of Florence, which was fascinating. It was our third visit to Florence and, with the exception of the Accademia where Michelangelo’s sculpture of David resides, we wanted to visit less well-known sites. She accommodated us in spades. We started with a visit to Santo Spirito, Brunelleschi’s church on the other side of the Arno. There you’ll find a wooden sculpture of the crucifixion of Christ that Michelangelo carved when he was only 17 years old. This is but one of the many surprises in store for you with Eliza’s congenial and expert guidance. Did I mention she also is reasonably priced?!?

Eliza is a fabulous guide and was amazing from the moment my wife, two adult daughters and I met her! She's extremely knowledgeable and even more personable - seeming like a long time friend, within a few minutes of talking with her. Eliza gave us an exceptionally in depth perspective of Florence, taking us to many areas and explaining many things we would never have seen or known. At the end of the 3-hour tour, she even sat with us while we warmed up a bit (was unseasonably chilly the day of the tour). Finally, she recommended two Florence restaurants - we tried both and both were fantastic! We thoroughly enjoyed our remarkable time with Eliza and would highly recommend her to anyone visiting Florence!!!

Eliza was fantastic from the minute she met us at the doorstep of our rental apartment, to the end of the tour where she guided our group to the best pizza in Florence, and to the lengthy email she sent after the tour outlining all the shops/sites we toured so we could find them again. We had 6 travelers in our mother/daughter group including two 17-yr olds and two 23-yr olds. Eliza’s wealth of knowledge about the history, culture, politics, shopping and dining options in Florence was both entertaining and impressive. She tailored her tour to include personal interests of each customer - showing us the best places in the city to buy local Italian-made leather goods, stationery, perfume, jewelry, silk scarves, ties and of course gelato! Her tour through the Accademia provided interesting and colorful stories, not only about Michaelangelo, but also about the Renaissance and Medici families. We thoroughly loved our time with Eliza and will definitely tour with her again the next time we’re in Italy!
