Great service and very informative guide (Eloise). Good tip to start early in the day before the hordes of people turn up. Also worth seeing for the history buffs is the cemetary. Word of advice is that during off peak season tours may not run due to minimum numbers. However, the guide services will do their best to accommodate.

I can't stress enough how important it was to have a guide with local knowledge and experience during our stay in Florence. Francesca and Elisabetta were able to share not only the fun facts but the back story on everything we saw in this beautiful part of Italy, and their love of home made it all very personal for us....

After spending six weeks living in Firenze, and spending many weekends touring Tuscany with an experienced and knowledgeable guide, I know that my enjoyment of this would have been significantly diminished and the knowledge I obtained paltry if not for her. Francesca Donati is an amazing guide with an encyclopedic knowledge of Tuscany, and she made my trip.

Franceska Donati was our guide for a six-week visit Road Scholar trip, Living and Learning in Florence. It made such a difference to have a guide who was born, raised and educated locally. She was so knowledgeable about the art, archaeology, culture and history of Florence, Tuscany and Italy. It was really fun to spend a weekend in her hometown... More

I have been to Italy before but never experienced guides with the depth of knowledge of Tuscany and the joy with which Francesca shared what seemed to be an endless flow of historical references and little known stories of well known figures in Florence's rich history. Her obvious delight with her vocation leads her to fly outside the bounds of... More

Francesca is very knowledgeable, kind, pleasant, lovable and goes the extra mile to help anyone who needs it. Our group of 23 went on several day trips with Francesca, so I speak from experience. Book her and you'll have a great time!!

Just spent 6 marvelous weeks in Florence. Our guide and leader, Franceska Donati was fabulous. She was not only extremely knowledgeable about all of Tuscany but spent a great deal of her own time planning excursions for us, taking care of problems that arose and caring for all of us. Fell in love with Florence, Tuscany and Franceska!

During a two month visit to Tuscany I was fortunate to have Francesca Donati as my guide in Florence, Arezzo, Volterra, Pisa, Sienna, Greve, and Lucca. This was my third trip to Italy in the past two years and, due largely to Francesca's wonderful service, the best of the three visits.

Francesca Donati was our guide during our six week stay in Florence. She is a very personable and efficient woman. She is knowledgeable about the city and Tuscany overall. She was excellent in arranging tours, meals, and travel. I would definitely request her as my guide if I return to Florence.
