We had booked half a day with Adriana who picked us up at our flat. From there on...the day was an adventure. She took us into the small streets of Florence, packed with stories of ancient times. So interesting! We also visited a couple of craftsmen showing us fantastic arts and crafts. We ended up in the food market, where... More

Adri made our full day tour of Florence lively and very interesting. Adri has an extensive knowledge of Florence and its many treasures. Her tour was extremely well organized and offered us chances to break for lunch or gelato when we were overwhelmed by the sheer volume of art in Florence. She ended the tour in the Accademia with a... More

As a practised and popular host, Florence knows how to cater to almost any taste of lodging. What holds true for hotels,doesn't subscribe for restaurants. Italian cities do not usually excell in a variety of cuisines,because they excel in a cuisine that is the envy of most of the rest of the world : Italian. Florentine trattorie and osterie pump...

We had a delightful day in Florence with Adri. We visited during the World Cycle Tour when sightseeing in Florence was quite a challenge, but Adri managed to show us all the sights we were desperate to see and tailored the day to suit our family and the age of our children, balancing the historical sites with Gelato tastings, espresso...

My wife and i booked a private half day tour of Florence to learn about the art and architecture that tourists don't discover on their own. We met Chiara at our hotel and went on a journey that included history, art, architecture, food, fashion, and local customs. Our time with Chiara went far beyond just a tour--it was a very... More

OK, I am way overdue in writing this review, but as the saying goes better late than never. My wife and I visited Italy last year in October 2013 and wanted a private tour of Florence and saw Florence Custom Tours on Trip Advisor. Who had received great reviews so I decided to contact them. Boy! Am I glad I... More

Four of us were in Florence for a short two day visit and contacted Adrianna in advance to arrange for a private half-day tour. She was very responsive to our emails and made great suggestions based on our interests. We had a mix of art, architecture, artisans and food tastings at the market, all while hearing interesting stories about the... More

We were returning to Firenze after many previous visits, this time with a friend who hadn't spent much time there at all and thought a tour was in order. We booked Florence Custom Tours based upon other Trip Advisor reviews, but also based upon the promptness of the replies and Adri's flexibility of itineraries - largely to make the most... More

Adri was simply awesome! She balanced our day with art, culture, cafés, and shopping. My wife and I like some structure on vacation, but not too much. Adri was extremely flexible and she adapted the tour to fit our interests and personalities. The highlight of our day was tasting authentic balsamic vinegar in the marketplace. It was completely spontaneous and... More

There's not much new I can add to the other already glowing reviews, except to confirm them. My partner and I had the pleasure of spending the day with Adri this past Saturday and truly enjoyed every minute. This experience is worth every bit of the cost and allowed us to get a great sense of Florence and some of... More
