TESTIMONIALS

  • Private Livorno Shore Excursion Best Pisa & Lucca Day Tour

    Just wanted to let you know …our tour was GREAT, our guide was GREAT (really terrific) and we had a wonderful time. WELL worth it! Even though neither Lucca nor Pisa are particularly “amazing” towns, our guide made them be so…had a wonderful lunch, and really enjoyed it.
    Very well worth the value!
    Thanks so much – very professional from start to finish…

  • Venice Discovery Family Tour

    NancyAiello tours were prompt, informative and professional from the first email enquiry to the actual tour. Great service! Our experience was wonderful. I would definitely recommend Nancy Aiello Tours to my family and friends.I come across NancyAiello through a google search for walks in Venice with children.
    PS: I would just like to add that our guide Elizabeth was fantastic. She was informative, helpful, professional and really easy to get along with. Our tour was a real treat!

  • Venice Children Tours

    Ann was brilliant to book with. She was extremely efficient and provided expert guidance and advice when booking.
    As a family we thought both tours were terrific.
    Elisabetta was brilliant with children. She came down to their level and involved them all the way. I loved the fact she started off showing them a map of Venice and gave them lots of fun ‘quiz’ questions throughout. It made them active learners without them knowing it. She was fun, polite and a pleasure to have spent the afternoon with. I would thoroughly recommend her.
    Samuele’s tour was good too. He set up the mask making workshop and a trip to Murano to visit a glass factory. Both were very special. The girls had lots of fun and learnt lots. His expert knowledge in finding the right places to do these activities which would suit children was evident and very appreciated. Again, I would recommend him.
    I found the tours on the Internet when looking specifically for tours with children in mind. We are already thinking of using you when we visit Tuscany next year!
    The only thing I perhaps would have liked would have been a plan of what the tour guides were going to do so we could plan our other days a little better and not repeat anything. Luckily we hadn’t really visited Murano yet but if we had, we would have then repeated the experience.
    Apologies for the late feedback. We certainly look forward to using you again.
    Please express our thanks to Ann, Elisabetta and Samuele for their parts in our experience. It has been a pleasure dealing with you. Thank you for all your advice and time.
