The beauty of a private guided car tour lies in the comfort and flexibility that it offers. Upgrade your tour to include a private driver (in addition to your private guide). With this optional private transportation service, guests have their own vehicle with a driver, and a guide for a total of 2 professional people at disposal for the whole length of the tour, including accommodation pick up and drop off. A private car and a driver (in addition to your private guide) is the perfect solution for those who want to tour in comfort and style.

Make the most out of your precious holiday time. Enjoy the flexibility of touring at your own pace with the convenience of an on-hand driver. Having a car and driver in addition to the guide is beneficial as you cover more sites, see off the beaten path sites that are not accessible on foot, and save energy as you are chauffeured from site to site in the luxury of an air-conditioned vehicle, thereby skipping the long walks.

Do you combine people to share the tour?

All our tours are private, luxurious, 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.
We specialize in private, tailor-made vacations for individuals, families and friends.

Do we skip the line to enter the Coliseum?

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: For safety reasons even with booking reservations, there is still a compulsory security check which may cause some delays in entering the Coliseum. Recently, due to increased security measures, new screening procedures were put in place for entry to the Colosseum. 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.

Does your skip the line tour of the Coliseum go to the underground level or the 3rd tier?

The Colosseum does not allow any company to conduct private visits to the Underground areas. The underground and third tier level access of the Colosseum is run exclusively by the Colosseum and only available for those joining group tours. Therefore, the visit of the underground and third ring are NOT included in our private family tours.

Do we stop for lunch on tour?

Yes! In a city with so much great food it would be crazy not to. The duration of the tour includes time for breaks to grab a quick snack and/or lunch but is not included in the price. Some people like to grab a quick pizza or a snack, and some people like to sit down for a relaxing meal. Either is an option, but just know that if we sit down for a relaxing meal we might have to move faster to get in the rest of the sights.

What happens if a site is unexpectedly closed on the day of scheduled tour?

We are NOT liable for reduced itineraries owing to unscheduled closures by attractions. Unscheduled closures do not depend on us, but on the administration of the sites visited on the tour. In the event of an unexpected closure of a site or attraction your guide will promptly provide an alternative itinerary. While we regret these inconveniences, these rare unforeseen closures are beyond our control for which we cannot be held responsible therefore no refunds will be issued.
The Colosseum is subject to occasional last minute closures without notice due to rain, assembly meetings, strikes or other factors. If it happens your guide will modify the itinerary working with the circumstances given. While we regret this inconvenience, the unforeseen closure of the Coliseum is beyond our control for which we cannot be held responsible therefore, no refunds will be issued.

  • Italy Vacation Family Tour Package

    Hi Ann,
    My apologies for being slow to follow up. I’m finally over my jet lag! Just wanted to thank you for your help in setting up our tours in Rome, Florence, and Venice. We had an extraordinary time. All of your guides were very knowledgeable, and Vincenzo, Elisabetta, and Emilio were really exceptional. Vincenzo and Elisabetta in particular knew how to engage and entertain our ten-year-old son, and their passion for history and architecture really left an impression on all of us. Would you please pass our regards along to them? Do let me know, too, whether it would be helpful to provide some more formal feedback. Thanks and regards

    Vatican Children Tour

    We thoroughly enjoyed both of our tours. On Monday, we toured with Laura. She was engaging and informative. We all learned so much. We had a fun trivia game at lunch after the tour, and we were very impressed with how much information our 7 and 9 year old girls retained. Laura made it interesting and presented the information in a way that they could understand.
    On Tuesday, we toured the Vatican and also had a great experience. Our guide was patient and full of interesting information. He also presented the tour in a way that the children could understand. He was very knowledgable, and we really enjoyed our time with him. We would definitely recommend Nancy Aiello Tours for other families with children. We were very pleasantly surprised by the guides and how they interacted with our children on an age appropriate level. We saw the tours of people wearing headphones and were immediately relieved that we had fun, interactive, engaging private guides for our children and for ourselves. We found Nancy Aiello Tours first through a blog online about a father traveling with his son. I looked up “Seeing Rome with children”. We then researched your company and saw a lot of positive feedback. Thank you again!
