  • Old Rome Children Tour

    Hi Ann
    I just wanted to provide some feedback about our Ancient Rome tour from today. Our guide Luciana was exceptional. She pitched the information perfectly to the children and used humour to keep them interested. She went out of her way to research a Gluten Free restaurant for us and we had the most delicious Gluten Free Pizza and Tiramasu for our lunch.
    Please send on our thanks to her as she made today on of the highlights of our trip to Italy.
    Kind regards

  • Old Rome Children Tour

    Vatican Children Tour

    In a word “fantastic”. Our guide, Katztiana (sorry if I spelt her name incorrectly) was fantastic and her knowledge was thorough and she kept my 7 year old daughter totally interested and engaged.
    I would highly recommend Nancy Aiello Tours to friends and family, especially those with children.
    I found Nancy Aiello Tours on the CiaoBambino website and the more research I did on your company, glowing reviews kept coming up.
    Thank you for making Rome so interesting and easy!

  • Custom Rome Tours with Pre-Teens

    Everything was fantastic, especially Cinzia. I will provide a great review and comments to both you and trip advisor when I return to the states in August. Worth every penny.  Thank you for helping to make our trip to Rome extra special.
