We are definitely going to review our tour on trip advisor upon our return home. Our driver was incredibly punctual, professional and helped make our experience amazing including his recommendations for lunch. We were well taken care of and really appreciated the care he took when driving around…made us feel very safe! Our guide in the ruins of Pompeii was incredibly knowledgeable and really provided us insight into what life would have been like. The ruins she showed us were first rate and she moved us through massive crowds expertly so we felt at times we were the only ones on Pompeii. We would definitely recommend your services to anyone including family and friends. Thank you for a most amazing experience! I originally found you by chance on the Internet and it worked out wonderfully for us! Thank you! Please pass on our thanks and praise to your staff who helped us enjoy our day so much!

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!!
Our overall experience with Nancy Aiello Tours was fabulous. I can’t say enough good about the entire experience. So worth the money and the tours helped make our trip memorable and want us to return. Luciana was great with my boys and had a wealth of knowledge. One of my sons even said “I can see why she is a tour guide, she knows how to ask me questions that make me interested!” I love that she did that – asked them questions and not just tell them facts but give them the why behind a fact. Also our driver, Christian, from the airport was great too. He stopped at an ATM machine at our request and then offered to get us some espressos too. Those were much needed that morning.
Our experience with Nancy Aiello Tours was fantastic. I would highly recommend Nancy Aiello Tours. The confirmation email was filled with the details I needed and wanted and the people selected were great. I came across Nancy Aiello Tours reading other parents’ blogs and lots of Google searching. All other reviews were great too. Thanks,
