THANK YOU to Chiara (Claire) for your time! What an amazing tour she provided for our family, and the 2 additional families we were traveling with! She was so patient with our group of 11 people, and she managed to keep the 5 children (ages 5 -12) engaged and interested the entire day. She took us to all of Florence's main attractions, reserved our tickets to the Accademia and the Ufizzi Gallery so we were able to skip to the front of the line during the busy Easter season, and showed us some of the places only locals know about (the fabulous indoor marketplace, a delicious, family-friendly place to eat lunch, and the best gelato we've ever eaten!) Claire met us at our hotel that morning. Our tour was supposed to last 6 hours, but she stayed with us extra time, in order to make sure we were able to see Santa Croce Church. She was so passionate and knowledgeable about the art, history, architecture, customs, & beauty of the city! This was definitely the highlight of our trip to Florence! Thank you, Claire and Florence Custom Tours for a truly memorable visit to an amazing city! (www.florencecustomtours.com)

My trip to Florence (which I think is one of the best places in the world) was highlighted by a fabulous tour taken with Adriana! She is knowledgeable and is up to date on everything. She was so much fun taking us through every major attraction. I will send anyone I know traveling to Florence to take a tour with this wonderful young lady!!

Excellent tour! We hired private 6 hours tour. Chiara demonstrates knowledge of all that is exposed. I trusted on information from Tripadvisor and I repented not.

We tried Florence Custom Tours after reading several of the reviews on Tripadvisor and I have to say it was great. We have a house a couple of hours away from Florence and we have been many times but doing it this way completely transformed the City for us all. There were 5 in our group ranging in age from 14 to 50 and Adri managed to grab the attention of everyone and hold it throughout the packed 3 hours we spent with her. Picking out lovely details in the artwork and giving little snippets of information which made the culture so much more accessible. Loads of tips of places to go back and visit; an insight into the best shopping and a fabulous restaurant where we topped the day off with wonderful bistecca alla fiorentina. We will definitely be back to see Vasari's Corridor if Adri can find a slot. Highly recommended

My wife and I enjoyed an excellent 6-hour personalized guided tour of Florence with Chiara at the beginning of April. It was our first trip to Florence, and I'm so glad we had Chiara with us to guide us through all the major attractions. Chiara had pre-purchased tickets and made reservations for the attractions that we had wanted to see, and it was great to be able to skip all the long queues and enter the museums when we wanted to. Not only was Chiara delightfully pleasant and accommodating in every way, she was extremely knowledgeable about the history and background of the city and its people as well as all the important works of art found all over the city. I would strongly recommend Chiara for those who want the best in a personalized tour of Florence.
