I hired Adrianna for 2 half day tours for my wife and two teenage children but specifically for my mother in law and 76 year old father in law so they could see Florence in all it's glory. I was concerned as my father in law has mobility problems but shouldn't have been as Adrianna was the most attentive, caring... More

We hired Chiara to tour us around Florence. We asked for 3 hours and ended up doing 4 -we didn't want to let her go! What we loved was that we had done a lot of churches and museums so she showed us the spots no one knows about! Secret doors and all! My husband and I loved every moment... More

We were so happy to have booked with Florence Custom Tours. Adri was an exceptional guide that just seemed to know everyone. We took the 1/2 day tour with the gastronomic option which Adri flawlessly wrapped together. Adri brought us down side streets to try gelato, meat, cheese, wine and then to the many beautiful sights of Florence. Would highly... More

We were blown away by this experience. From the moment we decided on this tour, our guide Chiara became our personal concierge. She has lived in Florence for 40 years... More

From the minute we met Chiara at our apartment in Florence we knew it was going to be a good day. It's always nice to deal with someone who likes what they do and Chiara certainly is that. She provided our group of 4 with a wonderful walking tour of Florence and shared her impressive knowledge of the sites. We... More

Chiara provided an historical and political context to masterpieces and little known works equally. Her depth of knowledge, generosity of time and warmth make this a highly recommended experience!
