Thank you very much to lovely Rubi who was our gide today on the morning Florence tour .Rubi took us to the "uninown" tourist places in the city,she is a sweet charming lady,we wish her all the best wishes,and thank you .
Rubin's was an excellent guide - paaSsionate, enthusiastic and very knowledgable but approachable. As an introduction to Florence it was perfect and Rubina's local knowledge invaluable. Our family group of 5 all got something from this.
Hema (Beyoncé) was a great tour guide. She was friendly, informative and funny. Her knowledge of historical events was great and she was open to any questions. You’d be lucky to have her as your tour guide
Best decision ever to do this walking tour. Inu who was the tour guide .. she knows so much and is so easy to get know .. it was such fun getting to know a new city with her .. highly highly recommended
I went on only the morning tour with Ellie and it was a great way to get a local perspective of the slightly less tourist-filled part of the city. It was super interesting to learn about the mad history of the Florentine wealth and power...More

Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city. The historic center is characterized by the immensity of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city
as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.

Tips are optional, they let you know at the beginning that it helps run the service, advertise and give some money for the guides. It was stressed that it was optional. It wasn't mentioned again throughout the tour, but everyone enjoyed and felt that they could contribute. I've been on paid tours that were awful and the guides still asked for tips which was laughable, indeed a number of people on the bus did. But these tours are great and there's no pressure. We gave €10 but others gave €5 and even €20. Depends on your budget and if you like it
