“Florence came alive on our tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2013

We took a wonderful 2-3 hour walking tour of Florence with Adriana. Our group was 2 adults and 2 teenagers. She showed us all around the city. Her English was excellent having spent a number of years in England. If we weren't there on a cruise and therefore only had a day, I would have booked another tour with their company!

“Best way to see Florence”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2013 via mobile

We were a group of 11, including children from 13 to 17. We all loved this tour. Adri our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. Tour is 3 hours long, perfect for a quick visit. Adri goes the extra mile to make your experience the best.

“Wonderful experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2013

My husband, teenage daughter and I spent a day in Florence with Chiara and it was a wonderful experience! A native of Florence, she pointed out interesting and unique things that we never would have known about or even noticed on our own. Her teaching background was evident in the way she would circle back to topics we had discussed earlier in the day to tie into what we were currently viewing. We all felt that we really learned a lot about the city and it's history. We saw many of the highlights of Florence with her and during a delicious lunch, she wrote a list of places for us to visit the next day. I highly recommend touring Florence with Chiara!

“A Terrific 3-day Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013

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 her guide us for 3 days allowed for schedule flexibility and avoidance of redundancy which further enhanced our experience. Besides all the must-see historical and artsy sights, Chiara mixed in some unusual visits such as one to an amazing artisan place that did framed mosaic pictures with cut natural stones of all colors. Salami paninis and gelato stops were also great and timed perfectly on our tours!
All in all, we had a great time in Florence and by the end had made a new friend - Bravissimo Chiara!

“Florentine gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013

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 with all the city's history and points out things to you that you never would have even looked at. A private tour, or a tour with a few friends is a must. Great time, great host! We are eternally thankful!
