Our overall experience with Nancy Aiello Tours was Great! We have worked with a number of different tour guides and agencies and have very high expectations. Our expectations were definitely met! Booking process was easy and went very smoothly. Great communication from Ann and thorough details and descriptions. We loved all off our guides Elena, Lucia, and Vincenzo. They made it interesting for the kids and were very attentive to my mother’s needs (bad knees). The drivers were great and informative and effectively handled challenges (traffic accidents/delays) when they arose. Everything ran smoothly, making our tour experience fantastic. I would absolutely recommend you to our family and friends. I came across Nancy Aiello Tours through Ciao Bambino.

MORE EXPERIENCES TO INSPIRE YOUR ITALIAN VACATION
We just returned from our week trip to Italy and the 4 days we spent in Rome with your knowledgeable, energetic and fun guide Roberta were fantastic.
I truly believe we saw more in 4 days than most people see in 2 weeks. Roberta made sure we never stood in line for anything – we literally walked into both the Vatican and the Vatican museum. Besides seeing many of the major sites in Rome proper, we also spent a day in Tivoli. Our group of 9 ranged in age from 12 to 69and had a variety of interests and physical abilities.
Roberta made sure that there something each day to appeal to every member of our family. For example, my 69-year-old dad wanted to visit some local open air markets and try restaurants with some true atmosphere; my teenage sons were interested in the more bizarre sites such as the catacombs and the Crypt of the Capuchin. This is just a sampling of what we accomplished in a very few days. We were able to go at a pace that kept the younger members involved, but did not wear out my parents.
For our family, this was a truly memorable experience and the best way to see Rome in a short time.
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.
