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.

You will also have the opportunity to tell us how we can customize the private tour for you and yours. With that, we will create the perfect tour for you.
Safety Alert. At the Accademia Gallery security measures including metal detectors have been introduced. Due to increased security measures, some lines may form on tours with skip the line access. Because of the security measures, the lines for entry to the museum may be long during peak seasons and holidays. All visitors must pass through security checks and metal detectors. This cannot be skipped and a lengthy line can form. We can skip the ticket line but not the security checkpoint that applies to all visitors, including those with skip the line access. To facilitate the security checks plan accordingly. Do not bring backpacks or luggage into the museum. Small handbags are fine. Please, consider leaving any items that need to be checked by security at the hotel to speed entry.

Yes. This tour includes entrance tickets to skip the line. Your tickets will be pre-booked and prepaid for fast hassle-free entry.

Recently, due to increased security measures, new screening procedures were put in place for entry the museum. For safety reasons ALL visitors must pass through security checks and metal detectors, so even with reservations there is still a compulsory security check which may cause some delays in entering the site.

MORE EXPERIENCES TO INSPIRE YOUR ITALIAN VACATION
Please do share this with Ann and Lucia. We learned about Nancy Aiello Tours through Ciao Bambino on line while searching for kid friendly guides to Rome. We had about 6 to choose from and I chose yours after reading the reviews.
Ann was absolutely indispensable in planning our trip. She was very friendly and not only welcomed our questions, but answered ALL of them promptly and in an exceptionally organized manner. She is very efficient and you are lucky to have her on your team. She could not have made planning our time in Rome easier than she did. She even helped me choose a hotel. I asked for recommendations for hotels with pools knowing that my children would want to relax after sightseeing. These are apparently hard to find in Rome but she suggested several. I would just like to add our hotel to your list of hotels with pools in Rome. The Crown Plaza Hotel at St. Peter’s. While it was an American Hotel off the beaten path, it was luxurious and very accommodating especially for the price. We took both public transportation and cabs to get to the city and the Vatican.
Lucia was also an excellent tour guide in Rome and we enjoyed being with her every day. Her knowledge of the city was expansive and almost unbelievable. We all appreciated her laid back manner and her efforts in always trying to engage our boys.
I will definitely recommend your company to others traveling abroad especially those with children. Thank you for your services and giving me the opportunity to write this review.
Our overall experience with Nancy Aiello Tours was outstanding. No way to describe the experience in a single word. From the start, you made the logistics of learning about your tours, and the administration of ordering quite simple. Our tour guide made us feel welcome and comfortable from the very first moment we met her, and made us feel part of her special family. She was bright, knowledgeable, articulate and had a great sense of humor. We couldn’t have picked a more congenial person as our team partner. Please pass on our thanks and compliments to her. I would absolutely recommend Nancy Aiello Tours to our family and friends.
