Thank you so much for our introduction to Florence! When we asked Beatrice at Residenza Casanuova if she could help us find someone who was both knowledgeable and enthusiastic about art history, we honestly had our doubts whether such a person existed. But we came with open minds, and the moment you walked us into the Church of Santa Croce and began to speak of the Florentine approach to Gothic architecture, we became your enthusiastic students. We could have spent days in the Uffizi on our own and never appreciated it as much as we did in an afternoon with you. You are an inspired guide, and when you told us that you love what do, we were entirely convinced.

Hi Olivia, I arrived home last Friday evening. It was mixed emotions to come home - always nice to be in your own house but my mind was still very much in the moment with Italy. All was beautiful with the trip but especially our day spent with you. This day will be day that I always remember and I look forward to my next trip to Italy (2010?) and having a chance to tour with you again. Thanks again for the great job you did and I will send the pictures within a couple of weeks!
Hi Olivia, Just wanted to thank-you again for touring us around Siena! We had the most wonderful trip. Hayley will never be the same, now that she has had a taste of Tuscany!! She is already trying to figure out how to get back over there...I will keep your business card on file. I hope to spend time with you again soon.
Dear Olivia, Thank you again for taking us on a tour of Florence , San Gimignano and Siena . We had a wonderful time with you, and learned a lot, too.Ciao
Hello Olivia, I just wanted to drop you a line now that I have had a bit of time to catch up from being gone and thank you for a wonderful day in the Tuscan countryside. It was the highlight of the time we spent in Italy for me. What a great opportunity to visit the non-city areas of Tuscany - my favorite was definitely the little town Montefioralle! What a wonderful peak into Italian history and culture that was. I only wish I had a home there!Thanks again for a wonderful day

Hi Olivia, Thanks again for showing us such a wonderful time on our one-day tour. We all agreed that our tour with you was a highlight of the trip. We'll spread the word about your services! We received our brunello and we'll have to have a party to celebrate it. We enjoyed meeting you.
Olivia, I just got back to Oregon from my Italy vacation. I wanted to tell you that the tour of the Chianti region that I took with you was one of the highlights of my trip. I had such a great time and really loved the little country towns in the Chianti area. Again, thanks for a memorable tour.
Dear Olivia, We have returned Tokyo on Saturday evening and I am back to my work on Monday, today. Thank you for your very nice tour and kind following. My family and I enjoyed very much in your beautiful Firenze ! Thank you again. And I promise to see you again in near future.
Dear Olivia We are back home and getting into our routines, but I just wanted to thank you for showing us around Florence and Siena. We had so much fun with you and we enjoyed learning about the cities. We wish you all the best in the future and will be sure to tell our friends about you when they visit Tuscany.

Dear Olivia, You may not remember us - we were with you the day the monk let us in to the closed part of the monastery to look at the art and we saw a huge last supper fresco painted in 1637 ( or close to it ) in the refectory. And I liked to try everything ! After our lunch of freshly made tortello we had coffee and then I tried a pickled garlic as we were leaving the building. Maybe now you remember a bit ? Well anyway I am writing because we had a most enjoyable day with you and saw so many places, we wanted you to know it was one of the highlights of our whole trip. I intended to email earlier, but didn't get around to it, however, today for the first time ever, I am pickling our own home grown garlic and of course thought of you. Hope it tastes good. Thanks again for a great day full of wonderful memories,
Bryan & Danielle

Hi Olivia, We visited last March and now that's we're finally going through our pictures, we wanted to say thank you for showing us around. We had an unbelievable trip and a wonderful time on the tour. We actively dreaming of coming back and hope you are doing well. Thank you so much,
Olivia, thank you very much for spending time with us this past week. Both my Dad and I had a wonderful time in Toscana, and the sites and sounds you introduced us to will be memorable. I have your card, and hopefully I will provide referrals to you.
