We had the absolute pleasure of being guided by Dina for a walking tour of Florence with a stop at the Accademia. Not only is she an absolute delight, her tour was informative, fun and well-paced. Dina’s passion for her city and for guiding is infectious and we would book her again in an instant. Thank you Dina for a beautiful day in a beautiful city!!
Diladdarno Tour: the Other Side of the River
This was my second trip to Florence and so I was looking for something different than what I'd seen before. Zeynep shared with me exactly this - a peek inside the traditional Florentine life outside of the touristy squares. The gelato was delicious! Getting stories of the local history and looking at different pieces of hidden artwork was worth every penny. Thank you so much for making my time in Florence memorable. Grazie millle!
