We just spent 4 days in Florence and used Florence Custom Tours for 3 extended customized tour days. Chiara was our gudie for the entire duration. She is a native Florentine who took a lot of pride in sharing the magical sights and stories about Florence. She was prompt, funny, and very knowledgeable and informative. No question went unanswered. Having... More

We toured with adriana on a very hot day and it was just amazing! Adriana took into account the weather , and what we had already seen in the city, and created our own timetable. She is very flexible and will customise your tour for you, as well as showing a few of her city secrets!! She is very knowledgeable... More

We did a 3 hour walking tour with Chiara on the afternoon of June 9th. Confirming the tour before we left for Italy was easy and Chiara promptly answered all our email inquiries. She met us promptly at the meeting point and we had an informative and enjoyable tour of the major attractions in the city center. Chiara knows her... More

Adriana is a wonderful, knowledgable, sweet and honest tour guide. So many great things to say about her. We are a family traveling with three teens ages 18-13 and she made it enjoyable for all of us. She combined history, religion, and culture into each 3 hour tour. Most appreciated was the first day. She immediately noticed my kids were... More

Our group of ten (two families of five each) spent two days with Chiara and absolutely loved her! Chiara is great at building an itinerary that is of interest to families with kids of all ages. As an example, the adults and teenagers enjoyed balsamic vinegar and olive oil tasting while she entertained our younger children with pizza and coloring!... More

My friend and I had a private tour with Laura this morning and it was fabulous. Laura is a native Florentine and her love and knowledge of the city were outstanding. She helped us to understand and appreciate what makes Florence Florence. With a masters degree in art, her explanations of what we were seeing made the art come alive.... More

My husband and I just spent a lovely day touring Florence with Chiara. We were impressed with her knowledge of the city (she is a native of Florence) and the attractions we visited. This experience was so much better than just reading a guide book or taking a bus tour and well worth the expense. She is a former art... More

Our tour guide Adri was one of the best guides we have ever had. She is a native of Florence and loves and appreciates her beautiful city and is wonderful at sharing her passion. We only had one day because we were coming from a cruise ship. She talked to us to understand what we liked to do and we... More

Based on the good reviews on Trip Advisor we arranged a personal tour by Adriana and it was one of the best things we did on our European tour. We were only a few days in Florence and our first day we wandered and saw the famous sights, but it wasn't until Adriana pointed out things and explained the history... More

Chiara was our company (she is not "just" a guide, she becomes your friend!) during our day in Florence. We would never have noticed half of the things she pointed out to us nor visit the Accademia and Ufizzi in a more objective way. Chiara had pre-purchased tickets for both museums and it certainly made our day way more productive,... More
