We did a 3 hour walking tour of Florence with Chiara. Chiara has a Doctorate in art history which made the tour very interesting. She also made sure to include some private aspects we did not expect. We visited the Florence rowing Club on the banks of the Arno. We also saw a demonstration of the traditional paper marbling methods... More

Went on shore excursion with port at La Spezia, which only allowed us about 5 hours to see Florence off ship. Chiara, our guide, took our family of 4 to most of the highlights. She was terrific! Very knowledgable, professional, and flexible. She was an excellent guide who allowed us to have a nice taste of Florence! Highly recommend!We will... More

My family took an evening walking tour with Adri and it was great!! We saw all the sites of Florence and she gave us great background information and history. She showed us so many things we would have never noticed had we been walking on our own. She also tailed the tour to appeal to our love of history. She... More

We did the Strolling Through Florence and Classic 1/2 Day Florence tours and just could not have been more pleased with the wonderful Adri. History, Art, Artisans, Food, and all things Florence come alive when you take tours with her. I'd give a 17 star rating if TA allowed it... Of course, now in hindsight, we wished we would have...

My daughter and I highly recommend booking private tours of Florence with Adri! Adri is from Florence and possesses a wealth of information about this beautiful city and the surrounding countryside. Adri negotiated the crowds with ease and shared so many details about the art and history in Florence that made each museum and basilica extra special. She was very... More

This was an excellent company to deal with, start to finish. Very easy to book through email and deposit with PayPal. We added 2 more people 2 weeks out from our tour date and they added them with no extra cost and got them added to our reservation to get into the museum to see the David. Chaira (Claire) was...

We could not have been happier with Adri's tour of Florence. Adri is a resident of Florence who happens to speak perfect English, which enhanced our experience. She catered the tour to our preferences, and even found us a perfect spot for lunch. in addition to the obvious history lessons, she gave us great guidance on shopping, food, local customs,street...

We booked a full day tour of Florence on May 21, 2015. Our guide, Chiara, was enjoyable to be with and has a wealth of knowledge about the city and its art works, which she graciously passed on to us. It was our first of four days in Florence; and it gave us a really good basis on which to... More

My wife and I had the pleasure of having a tour of Santa Croce and the Bargello museum with Adri. Our tour concluded with a tasting of meat, cheeses, and olive oil. Adri customized our tour and politely made some great alternative recommendations. If we are lucky enough to return to Florence a third time we would not hesitate to... More
