Tour of masterpieces & insights at the Uffizi!
Hi Dina was great guide, very knowledgeable and the kids loved her. It was good to have someone show us the highlights of the Uffizi otherwise we would have been lost without her.
Tour of Masterpieces & Insights at the Accademia Gallery
We booked two tours with Dina, but unfortunately on the day I was sick so my husband went along, and thoroughly enjoyed the tour, but Dina was so kind, offering to complete the tour the following day so that I could attend. We were actually going elsewhere the following day,,but we did meet for coffee on our last day.
Dina is an absolute sweetheart - I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her, great knowledge, passionate about Florence, and a lovely person too!

Elisabetta had thought very carefully about her content and presentation for our tour. She actively engaged our children in the tour and we learnt lots. We saw and learnt things about Florence that we otherwise would have missed. Best gelato shop at the end.
