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. Thanks Rubina!

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

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
