Thanks for your email, now that we are back in the states I am happy to share some feedback.
Overall experience: terrific, would highly recommend
Booking process: most grateful for thorough, timely responses and attention to detail. felt completely well prepared for our tours before we left.
Tour experience: simply amazing. made all the difference in our trip to have participated in these tours. cinzia was a MARVELOUS tour guide; not only was her expertise astounding and her storytelling riveting, but she did a simply phenomenal job of catering to our group, which included some adults who were very interested in the subject matter, two four-year-olds with limited understanding of what they were seeing (and jet lag, and tired little legs), and some distracted parents! she met every single one of us at our own level, with grace and good humor, and made rome so magical for us all. our kids gave her big hugs at the end our last tour and later told us they missed her. i was amazed after we got home to hear my son recounting the stories she shared with us, and for my daughter to be able to point out symbols and images we had learned about at the vatican museums. cinzia was just wonderful and i cannot have imagined our trip without her wonderful guidance!
Would strongly recommend nancy aiello tours to family and friends, and will look into you again should we book more travel!
Came across nancy aiello tours through google, was encouraged by tripadvisor reviews.
Thank you again so very much and please send our best wishes and gratitude to cinzia!

How it Works
We will get the tickets ahead of time so that you won’t have to wait in any lines. During the booking process, you will be able to tell us when and what you would like to tour. 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. Please Note: We recommend this tour for ages 10 and up.
Safety Alert. At the Uffizi 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.
Do you combine people to share the tour?
All our tours are private and totally customized to suit your desires, which means that you do not share your tour with anyone else – without having to accommodate other people’s interests. Our private tours are exclusive to one booking party and we do not combine separate reservations to form groups.

Do we skip the line to enter the Uffizi Gallery?
Yes. This tour includes entrance tickets to skip the line. Your tickets will be pre-booked and prepaid for fast hassle-free entry.
Please Note: 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. Because of the security measures, the line for entry may be quite long during peak seasons and holidays. However, no time will be wasted. Your experienced guide will use this time to provide an overview and contextualization for the tour.

MORE EXPERIENCES TO INSPIRE YOUR ITALIAN VACATION
Thanks for your email, now that we are back in the states I am happy to share some feedback.
Our recent visit to Rome would not have been the same enriching experience without the tours we booked with your company. Luciana was our guide for Ancient Rome, Underground Rome and the Vatican/St.Peter’s. We were so impressed by her knowledge and enthusiasm for the subject matter, and particularly the way she communicated with our two sons (ages 8 and 10). My children loved Luciana and were sad on the one day that we had not booked a tour. The primary reason we booked a private tour was to make sure the children would get the most out of the tours, and I feel that our children learned quite a lot (and enjoyed it!). I might not have considered booking a private tour if my husband and I had been traveling without our children. After our wonderful experience, I would highly recommend to anyone traveling to Rome, (whether traveling alone, as a couple or with family), to book a tour with your company. We intend to return to Rome and plan to schedule some of the other tours.
Our experience with Nancy Aiello Tours was the highlight of our trip to Rome. Our guide was really knowledgeable and able to adapt and please us (the parents), a 17 year old boy and a 7 year old girl. Which is asking a lot!! She made the day interesting and fun! I feel we learned things that we would have never found in a large guided tour or through audio or guide books. It was great that she was able to navigate around long lines and bring us to the places that were of interest to us. We didn’t have a lot of time before our trip to make plans for our stay in Rome, which was fine because you did everything for us. It felt like we were out with a friend showing us Ancient Rome, just happened that that friend was extremely knowledgeable!
Would definitely recommend Nancy Aiello Tours – really worth it if you are busy and don’t have the time to do a lot of research before traveling (which you need to do as there is so much that Rome has to offer). Fantastic for kids as it wasn’t just a lot of information thrown at us but it was information that all of us found really interesting. Our guide was able to lead us and answer questions about what we found interesting instead of just throwing facts our way. My son said it was the highlight of his trip to Rome and my daughter is telling everyone all the things that our Guide told her!!
