We booked this tour from home before leaving, and Chiara and Adri were both friendly and timely in their communications with us. On the day of the tour, Chiara (Claire) met us at our hotel. She was a fantastic guide, who adjusted her commentary to help our daughters understanding, and related everything in a very human way. We learnt so... More

I highly recommend seeing Florence with Florence Custom Tours. We booked an extended walking tour with Adri. She took us to the Uffizi and the Accademia, Santa Croce (her old stomping grounds), dropped us at a nice restaurant for lunch, and all through the little alleys of Firenze. It was a delightful day. Adri is a wonderful guide.

We had a wonderful full day tour with Adri tailored to show us highlights of Florence but also mindful of our 12yo & 9yo. The centre was packed in the morning for a fun run but we managed to avoid most of the crowds and walk the lovely lanes that link the old part of the centre. Warning that you... More

A mom with 3 kids had a great afternoon with Adri in Florence. Adri was quick to make us feel at ease and gave us a family friendly tour. She showed us Florence from a local perspective and kept us away from the crowds. She adapted the tour to what we were looking for and made us laugh. We now... More

When looking for a way to explore Florence I did not want to book a tour that was crowded and impersonal We booked with Florence Custom Tours and found just what we were looking for. Chiara was very informative and we felt very comfortable with her. She knew many things about the area and we were able to explore Florence... More

I just completed a tour of Florence with Adri today. She was amazing. Our tour was informative yet relaxed. She explained the history of Florence as only a native Florentine could do but in a conversational manner that made us feel completely at ease. We toured all the major attractions but a real treat was the artisan shops she shared... More

We arranged for the 6 hour tour and we are so happy we did. Chiara was absolutely a real pleasure. She is knowledgeable, answered all our questions. Lunch was a true treat and the gelato at the end was perfect. The Accademia, Uffizzi and all places we visited were perfect for our group of 4. Thank you Chiara.

My husband, 2-year-old son, and myself took a private tour of Florence with Adri in late August. Adri and Chiara were so responsive and helpful by email prior to the trip, and Adri even called us at our hotel as soon as we checked in to confirm the timing of our tour. The tour itself was informative and fun and... More

Adri, our private guide for a day, is a native Florentine, and she is the perfect person to show you around Florence. I emailed with Adri before the tour, and we worked out a schedule based on what my family and I wanted to see. We focused on Michelangelo, Medici history, and food. Once we arrived in Florence, Adri took... More
