  • Rome Vatican Children Tour

    Definitely would recommend to family or friend who could afford it. It definitely is a large cost which was in our affordability range, but would not necessarily be for everyone. The tour was great as was the guide. He was very patient to answer all my inquisitive 10 year olds questions. We got far more out of the private tour in Rome than out of the ½ day walking tour in Venice in a group of 27 with no other kids. There is so much to see in Rome and the Vatican and having a guide who can pick out certain monuments/pieces and discuss the significance and history is fantastic as compared to trying to do it on your own and you don’t understand the story of what you are seeing.

  • Florence with Kids Private Tour

    We had a wonderful time in Florence and loved our tour guide Elisa. She was very friendly and made it a memorable day for my whole family. I found Nancy Aiello Tours as I was searching the internet for family friendly walking tours. The reviews were very good for a private family tour. It was easy to book the tour online with the Nancy Aiello Tours website. Elisa met us at our apartment and was very accommodating, letting us know that if we needed to sit or have a break, we could at any time. She catered the tour to our children so that they were very engaged in the history and sights of Florence. We were able to see so much of Florence and learned much about its rich history. We would definitely recommend Nancy Aiello Tours.
    Thank you!

  • Under the Tuscan Sun Tour

    Andrea was waiting for us outside our BnB in Rome and took us on the most relaxing tour to Tuscany for our first day in Italy. The Wine vineyard was wonderful and very mom and pop. We requested to do a stop overs at a small town art site and Aiello Tours was very accommodating.
    Andrea spoke perfect english and noted to us on sites as we drove around. He gave us some history of the area during the day. He is an exceptional employee of Aiello Tours. We enjoyed every moment with him. Fantastico!! Thank you so much for a wonderful first day in Italy.
