  • Venice Discovery Family Tour 

    We had a wonderful day with Nadia from Nancy Aiello Tours. Friends of mine had told me to request Nadia specifically as they had had such an invaluable tour with her. They were correct. With our family of six (grandparents, adults and teenagers), Nadia showed us her Venice. She took us up back alley ways and for coffee in a quaint boutique hotel which we would never have found on our own. She made sure we saw everything we were interested in and the children (or oldies for that matter) never once complained!
    I will definitely recommend Nancy Aiello Tours to others who are planning on visiting Venice and will definitely use them when we travel to Italy again.
    Thank you for your organising such a wonderful experience for us.
    Best wishes and Happy New Year.

  • Venice Private Tour for Kids and Families

    Hi there
    Everything has been first class and I would absolutely recommend you (I actually already did to one of the hotel guests!)
    The information given, the booking process was very simple.
    Our guide SAM was so so so fantastic! We loved him – he was informative, funny, patient, kept the kids attention and we really felt looked after and lovely being ‘away from the crowds’. And a lovely end was being dropped off at a local pizza restaurant (great food and price) and even a toilet stop in one of the local bars was a great experience even for 5 minutes – very Italian atmosphere! Please thank Sam on our behalf! I came across the Nancy Aiello Tours from the internet – I googled tours with kids/family tours.
    110% fantastic!
    Kind regards
