We enjoyed our tours very much and would recommend them. Our overall experience with Nancy Aiello Tours was excellent. The booking process was exceptionally easy and quick. We very much appreciated the quick responses as we attempted to schedule dates for the tours. The tours were excellent. We especially loved our tour guide for the Rome Colosseum and Vatican Museum tours. She was particularly attentive to our children and always tried to make the information interesting to them. She was very conscious of when they needed breaks to sit or have a snack. If we were going back, I would definitely want her again. Our other guides were also very good, but our Rome guide was exceptional. My sister in law found your information on the internet. I suspect she may have found it through the Lonely Planet website. We were specifically looking for tour guides who were good with children since we wanted to make this experience interesting and informative for them.

MORE EXPERIENCES TO INSPIRE YOUR ITALIAN VACATION
Ann Sadly, we returned home last night from a wonderful holiday in Italy. I wanted to take a moment to thank you again for such a great experience. Nancy Aiello Tours played a very large role in our holiday, from the initial emails with you through our tours, and every tour exceeded our expectations. The family tours in Florence with Silvia and Ancient Rome with Lucia were outstanding. Their ability to keep the children engaged and interested and entertained for three hours was amazing and wonderful to witness. That was exactly the reason I chose your tour company and you did not disappoint! Further, Maurizio was such a wonderful guide on our tour through Chianti. He was such an engaging individual as well and was very knowledgeable on the region and the wineries.
What a fabulous tour company and team of guides you have working with you. Please pass along our gratitude to everyone involved. I am happy to act as a reference to anyone who is interested in speaking to me. I know I will certainly be referring your company to friends who are traveling to Italy in the coming months. And I hope to be back in Italy again soon and will reach out again to you.
Thanks again. Ciao!!
We had a wonderful time in Italy. Your guides were fantastic. Marco was extremely knowledgeable about Florence and all of the art and architecture in the City. He was able to engage my 80-year-old parents and my teenage sons. Stephania was a fabulous guide in Pompeii. She had tremendous energy and enthusiasm for the subject matter and really made ancient Pompeii come to life for us. Lucia was just as fabulous as Marco and Stephania. She had lots of great things to tell us about Rome, ancient life in Rome, Roman history and all of the art and architecture. Her tour of the Vatican was superb. My whole family can’t stop talking about how great all of your guides were. They really made the trip. All of your drivers were extremely friendly and accommodating. I will recommend your tour company to everyone! Thank you!
