Your itinerary will be worked out between yourself and our local experts in Florence. They are extremely knowledgeable and highly resourceful — trust us! Your tour doesn't need to be a walking tour, we have access to vehicles and buses if needs be, so the world is your oyster (or at least Florence and the surrounding area is, in this case!). Whatever you are looking to do that is within our Responsible Travel charter, we can organise it for you.
We offer a wide range of options for your Custom Florence tour.
- Themed walking tours — you can focus on food, artisans, personal shopping, history, anything you like!
- Wine tasting tours (complete with a driver so you can get lost in the wine without losing your way)
- Hands-on cooking classes in a private Italian home
- Hiking and biking tours for those who want an active adventure
- Personal transportation services to other destinations in Italy
Private walking, hiking, and biking experiences range in price from EUR 300 for a 3-hour tour to EUR 800 for an 8-hour tour, for groups of up to 8 people. For private driving tours, pricing starts at EUR 500 for a half day (minimum 4 hours), for groups of up to 8 people. Hands-on cooking classes start at EUR 120 per person for groups of up to 6 people.
We can also offer private transportation from hotels in Florence to hotels in Rome, starting at EUR 480 for 3 people.
We can accommodate any size group and pricing varies based on your group size, length of tour, and mode of transportation.
All you need to do to get your bespoke private tour organised is to choose your desired tour date. Use the booking function on this page for this request, and choose the number of passengers in your group. In the additional request box, include any information you think will be helpful in organising your tour. No payment is required to make your initial Custom Florence tour inquiry.
As soon as we receive your inquiry (during normal office hours or at the next earliest point), we will contact you by email or, for those who leave a Italy phone number, we will give you a call and begin the process to organize your perfect stay in Florence. Then, to secure your desired date and time of the tour, we'll ask for a non-refundable deposit.
Once your itinerary and quote is all confirmed, we will deduct the deposit from the final quote. We can arrange all final payments and terms during the planning stages of your private Florence tour.
