Our family of 4 (two adults and two teenage boys) had a wonderful walking tour of Florence. Our guide was Chiara and she did a really terrific job. She met us as our apartment and made us feel welcome from the first moment. She gave us the perfect blend of history, culture, and fun stories that we all felt we... More

My partner and I try to do walking tours wherever we go and have almost always had excellent experiences. However our day with Adri stands out as one of, if not the best we have done. As other reviewers have said, it is more like a day walking with a friend, except that friend has an encyclopedic knowledge and clearly... More

Wow! What an unbelievable afternoon. We had the pleasure of being accompanied by Adri as we walked and learned about this beautiful city. It felt less like a guided tour and more like a walk with a new friend! Although it went by in a flash, it was never rushed. This is the third tour we have been on in... More

Adri was highly recommend by friends and we were so lucky she could fit us into her busy schedule. We spent our first afternoon getting an orientation of Florence, some history, insider tips and interesting stories. She treated us to Gelato from her favorite place- delicious! We ended our tour with a trip to the Academia to see David. Adri... More

We had one day and night in Florence and wanted it to be extra special. I am not the "typical" tourist. Museums, crowds and spending time with other tourists is not my idea of fun! So, the tour with Adri was fabulous for me. Just my sister and I and Adri spending the day together felt like we had come... More

My husband and I had one full day in Florence and we knew to obtain the most out of our visit we needed to set up a private tour. Adri came highly recommended and we were not disappointed! She met us at our hotel and we walked and talked at a leisurely pace, learning history, observing artisans, sampling truffles, meeting... More

Adriana tailored our outing to be exactly what we were looking for -- and more! She met us at our hotel then it was off to several lovely, off-the-beaten-path artisans where our family of four, including our 5-year old, were beyond impressed! Adri was very knowledgeable about Florence and beyond -- even recommended a local chef for our private cooking... More

My partner and I toured Florence with Adri and really enjoyed it. She is so knowledgeable and she has a great love for her city. She provided the perfect mix of local flavor with history and art. She pointed out the best restaurants (not necessarily the most expensive!) and gelato shops. We found her very interesting, informative and fun. This... More

We spent one day with Chiara touring Florence. The experience was wonderful due to her incredible depth of knowledge of art history and Florence itself. Chiara (Clair) is a art history professor and is a fun and enthusiastic guide. We enjoyed getting to know Chiara and had a really fun day with her. I would highly recommend her to anyone... More

We had such a special time with Adri on our custom tour. Since we had visited Florence before and been to most of the museums and churches, we just really wanted to David again and have a local give us a food tour. Adri was perfect for that because she was born in Florence and knows all the best places.... More
