If you want to tour Florence with someone that immediately feels like an old friend, choose Florence Custom Tours! We had an amazing tour of Florence with Adri. We have 2 kids (12 and 10) so museums are not our thing on this trip. Adri brought the city to life for my kids with her history of everything. She is... More

We met with Adri early one morning and she gave us the most enjoyable walking tour of Florence. Adri is lovely and fun and incredibly knowledgeable. She's happy sharing the history of her beautiful city with you. We chose to also visit Mercato Centrale Di San Lorenzo with her and she arranged a lovely tasting tour with a few vendors.... More

Chiara was a wonderful and knowledgeable guide! She met our family of four at our apartment promptly at 8:30 and we set out on foot. The beauty of a private, custom tour is that you can take little side trips and explore little things that interest you. Chiara took us to a great little local coffee shop where we had... More

My family and I spent a day touring Florence with Adri. She was great! Very informative and patient with all of us who were exhausted from the heat! She showed us the best places to shop and eat after our tour and we enjoyed a wonderful evening of shopping and dining. The gelato tasting was one of our highlights! We... More

My wife and I had a private tour with Adriana and had a fantastic time! She was a delight to spend the day with. For being a local her English is perfect, in fact better then mine! With her growing up there she was able to tell us some much more about the city culturally. Things you can't find in... More

Chiara was a wonderful and patient guide. She was so knowledgeable of Florence, easy to talk with, and generally fun. She kept my tween and teen involved and enthralled the entire time. We did a half day tour and it was over before we knew it. I highly recommend this tour guide. She not only imparted her vast knowledge of... More

We had the pleasure of being met by Chiara, our guide and business co-owner, at the Florence train station. From there she took our family (3 kids aged 16,14 and 12) on a day long exploration of the old town. We enjoyed the major sites, but what really kept the kids engaged were her stories, behind the scenes access and... More

We took the half day Florence Tour with Adri. She is friendly and knowledgeable. We passed by small alleys and she took time to really explain them to us. At the end of the tour, she took us to a local restaurant where we enjoyed local cuisine. We took several tours on our trip to Italy and this was the... More

Chiara definitely delivered. -Local history & knowledge as we walked around town -Less tourist routes getting around the city -Local hidden spots that... More
