Chiara met us on time nd was wonderful. We traveled with a baby, a 3 year old boy and his grandmother and Chiara was wonderfully accommodating. Our pace was perfect, and she was great with the kids. Highly recommend her. It's a bit pricey but very very good.

I have had two tours with Chiara in the past (one in 2009 and one in 2010) as part of a walking tour with two different small groups. I really enjoyed the history and stories of Florence that she shared with us, plus her English is very clear. Her passion for her home town comes through in her interesting commentary.

Me and the wife spend half a day with Adriana, and is was one of the highlights of our ten day vacation in Italy. Unlike other walking tours, it was effortless, as we walked all around Florence without noticing it.
We were able to learn a lot about the history of Florence, and Italy in general. She was very patient with our continues questions, even during lunch..

Thanks Adriana, and I look forward to come to Florence with the kids that I am sure we will get them hooked on Florence and its history..

My wife, 22 year old son and I spent the day with Chiara. It far exceeded our expectations. Chiara is a very knowledgable person who put all of the art and historical sites into excellent perspective for us.

Chiara was charming and easy to communicate with. She really knows what she is talking about. She kept a great pace for us and we saw many things. It is so nice to be with a professional who can make seeing new things interesting and memorable. I would recommend her to any friend or family member and would definitely want to use her on any other trip to Florence.

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)
