We had an absolutely wonderful experience! I cannot express my appreciation for the wonderful service that we were provided! Our booking process was very smooth. I was making many last minute changes to dates and each one of my requests was dealt with efficiency and ease by the company. The tours were fantastic. I was traveling with my mother and 2 younger sons. Each of our three tours felt catered to include interaction by the tour guide with each age group. Everyone felt a part of the experience. I would absolutely recommend your tour company again and I have already. I came across your company name from the website ciao bambino, which I was researching because I was traveling with my 2 sons. Thank you again! We loved every minute of it!

MORE EXPERIENCES TO INSPIRE YOUR ITALIAN VACATION
We appreciate the service you provided. While it was expensive, it was worth it. The skip the line feature at the Vatican and Coliseum was quite the time and sanity saver. We had our 4 and 6 year olds with us and we knew they would have a limited amount of energy for sightseeing. We didn’t want to waste it in line. Plus, it was quite fun walking past all the people who had stood in line for 2 hours. We only had 2 full days to spend in Rome and would not have seen and done as much as we did without our tour guide. Our guide was Catia and she was wonderful. She was patient with our kids. She was very personable. She gave us a background and history of the places we visited and pointed out things regular sightseers wouldn’t notice. We enjoyed our time spent with her immensely. At one point, our 4 year old was tired and cranky and hungry for Nutella. Catia remembered there was a place nearby that had a Nutella pizza and called ahead to confirm. That pizza was probably our kids’ favorite meal in Italy and it averted a major meltdown. We were appreciative of Catia’s thoughtfulness.
It’s difficult with small children on a regular tour as they have their own special needs and pacing, but having a private tour with Nancy Aiello was the way to make everyone happy.
I would most definitely recommend Nancy Aiello Tours to my family and friends. We saw and experienced more than we would have in Rome than under any other circumstance. We were quite pleased with the experience.
I googled Rome for children and you were recommended in several travel sites and blogs. We looked at your website and saw that a couple of your tours looked exactly what we wanted.
Thank you. We were very pleased.
Our overall experience was very positive. The booking process was excellent. Everyone at Nancy Aiello tours was extremely responsive to all of our questions (even those unrelated to the tours!). The tours were excellent as well. Samuel did a great job with our tour in Venice. Filippo, who led our tours in Rome, was amazing. He was extremely knowledgeable, organized and gracious – and he did a tremendous job of engaging our boys in the tours. He enhanced our experiences in Rome beyond description. I would absolutely recommend Nancy Aiello Tours to our family and friends.
