Chiara showed us all, family of 5, a lovely morning in Firenze. She and Adri were very accommodating as we had to change date and time last minute. Grazie! Our children loved all they learned from Chiara, as well as the viewing of marbled papier making and the statue of David at the accademia. All fantastic! Highly recommend!!

Chiara spent a full day showing Florence to my family of six (kids are 9, 12, 14, and 17). She was fantastic at catering to all of our needs, which ranged quite a bit between us. Lots of people have covered how she is full of energy, and so incredibly knowledgeable. I want to add that she also showed great... More

We recently spent half a day on a walking tour with Adri. There were five adults and a six-year old in our party. In hindsight we wish we would have done a full-day tour – Adri is just that good. At the end of the tour it felt like she was part of the family. The tour was very laidback,... More

We recently visited Florence and did the full day walking tour with Adriana. It was a highlight of our trip to Italy! We were two adults and two teenagers and she made it fun and informative for all. Having limited time to spend in the city, this was a great way to make best use of our visit. She was... More

Our family group of four spent a day with Adri in Florence at the end of March. We had a wonderful day exploring art, architecture, history, food and shopping. Not only is Adri really knowledgeable, but she made the day fun as well. It felt like visiting with a local friend for the day, and we enjoyed her personal stories... More

There were 6 of us in our group and Chiara met us promptly at our hotel in the morning to begin our tour. She is very energetic and you can tell she really knows the area and is a wealth of information. She took us to sights she recommended we should cover with her during the 1/2 day tour and... More

My family (2 adults and 3 kids ages 8-12) spent a full day tour with Chiara. We were very happy with the tour. She really explained the things we were seeing in a way that was interesting both for adults and the kids. In other words, she could speak in adult-speak and kid-speak so both generations could take something away.... More

My wife and I have traveled extensively and the 2 days with Adri in Florence on March 31 and April 1 are up there with the finest experiences we've had traveling. The tour/itinerary is completely custom and Adri never misses a beat. With an infectious personality and real joy, our tour seamlessly transitioned from exploring churches -> hunting for the...

My wife, 14 yr old daughter and I recently took a 6 hr walking tour of Florence with Adri. We had multiple private tours during our recent Italy trip and Adri was by far the best. She was hugely knowledgeable of the area and the history but more importantly she used humor and a fabulous outgoing personality to bring the... More
