1. How long has the business been operating and how did it start?
I obtained my License as a guide in Florence in 2008 after submitting and passing an exam given by the local authorities, previously I had been working in Tuscany as a licensed tour leader focusing on wine tours and collaborating with travel agents that specialized in high end wine tours.
2. What is your company's mission?
Showing the real Florence to visitors, those interesting off the beaten track sites and obviously the highlights of the city. Giving a personable touch and making sure that everyone’s finds some aspect that captures their interest and curiosity.
3. What does your company specialize in?
Private custom tours in Florence.
4. Who is the founder or owner of the company and briefly describe his/her past activities?
Elisabetta Franchetti. The interest in tourism generated from my upbringing, my father worked in the United Nations and from the age of 3 to 18 I traveled changing countries every 2 years, confronting diverse cultures, traditions, languages. Traveling is still one of my greatest passions it broadens the mind. So which better activity could I choose for myself than that of being involved with fellow travelers!
5. What is your most popular travel package and why?
Both the Florence walks and the museum tours, because of the complexity and wealth of what Florence has to offer. Florence has more than 2000 years of history and though town there are many traces of that history and discovering them is fun. The museums in Florence are complex and full of art work, one can walk through them and not see or walk through them seeing, learning and understanding what lead an artist to create a painting in the way he or she did.
6. What is the best compliment you received from a client?
"We all had been to Firenze before. Some of us four times. But we did not get to know Firenze until now, with you. And we realize, Elisabetta, that what we received from you was like an appetizer, but an appetizer from a 5 star restaurant. We now know how to enjoy, savor, each morsel from this magnificent banquet called Firenze. You are a very special person with a God given talent that allows you to transport those within your reach to another level of interest. We now wish to keep on learning and enjoying all about Italy and its interesting history."
