We spent 3 hours with Adri. Part of our group got lost on the way into Florence but it was not a problem with Adri. She simply met us and then booked us to start an hour later so everyone could start the tour together. She is very knowledgeable about Florence and kept us away from the large tour groups for most of the day while still providing a great history lesson to our party. At the Academia museum, she got us to the front of the line so we had no wait on a very hot day. This alone was worth the cost of the tour! She also gave us great advice on where to eat and shop. Very friendly lady with a great personality. We highly recommend this tour so you don't waste your precious vacation time wandering around aimlessly wondering what you are looking at.

Our small party of three went touring with Adriana and had a wonderful day. She is a native Florentine but has great command of English so she can explain the intricacies of art with great skill. Trip was well organized and her personal style makes you feel you are just walking around with a very knowledgeable friend. I would highly recommend.

We were a group of 10 adults who spent the whole day with Chiara in Florence. What a special day we had! Chiara custom-designed our day around the things we had told her we were interested in. We visited the market to see where the locals do their daily food shopping. We went to the favorite tourist sights of Florence, including the Accedemia to see the statue of David. The day we were there, a sign was posted on the door that no more passes were available, but because we were with Chiara we were allowed to enter...no waiting! She took us to a wonderful restaurant for lunch where we sampled local wine. Afterward we had the absolute BEST gelato we had tasted in all of Italy, in a hidden little shop away from the tourist crowds. And at the end of the day we had requested to visit local artisan shops which included a papery and a linen shop. We all agreed that this tour was a highlight of our trip! I would recommend Florence Custom Tours to anyone...these gals are the best!

We were two adults and two teenage sons for a full day in Florence. We had requested certain art history content, and Adriana designed our day to get as much as we could out of the art and the beautiful and historic city. Our time in the Uffizi with her was amazing. She kept us entertained and educated all day, and we felt like we were leaving a friend at the end of the tour. She took us to a wonderful leatherwork shop and to the best gelato in Italy. We were in love with Florence and our sons were in love with Adriana by day's end. Do not miss this experience in Florence.

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!
