Yes, both Genevieve and I really enjoyed the tour with Cinzia. She pitched it perfectly to a 10 year old, using pictures and telling entertaining stories. I also learned things I had not known before, so it was good for me as well. Further, towards the end, she would give us the choice of doing two things, one more strenuous, one less, depending on how Genevieve felt. Overall, a 10 out of 10 and I would recommend it to others. Best regards,

Our published tours are intended to serve as a “starting point” for the trip you ultimately end up taking. These sample itineraries are based on our own expertise and firsthand experience. While it is fine to decide to take a trip exactly as it appears on our web site, most people prefer to work with one of our travel experts to create an itinerary that meets their interests and preferences. All our tours can be customized, modified or tweaked. From designing a custom experience from scratch to modifying an existing itinerary, the only limit is your creativity!
How does the trip planning service work?
Our job is to marry your request with our expertise, making sure you end up with a trip that fits your needs. We design bespoke itineraries and private Italy travel experiences. Our comprehensive itineraries are customized to each traveler and are private. We do not use canned, one size fits all approaches. We do not offer group tours. We do not work with fixed itineraries.

There are no set departure dates. You can depart on whatever day you wish. All of our tours are private and built from scratch, which means that there are not set itineraries nor scheduled departure dates. Our custom tours can be any dates, any place and in any style that you want to travel.
Do you book flights?
We do not book flights.
Are hotels included in the Amalfi Best Italy Family Trip?
Hotels are NOT included in the tour package. Each person has personal preferences and requirements. As a result, we intentionally do not include any hotels in the itinerary. Nevertheless, as part of the trip planning service, we will help you select and book hotels perfectly tailored to your itinerary.
We believe that where you stay is an integral part of your overall enjoyment of the trip. We understand the importance of staying within your travel budget. With a budget in mind we would be able to recommend a whole variety of accommodations, such as chic boutique hotels, beautiful villas, luxury apartments and more…the choice is yours. Enhance your dream trip with our hotel choices matching your preferences and price range. As there are endless options for you to choose from we are happy to offer our own personalized hotel recommendations.
How do you choose the hotels you recommend?
To ensure that you stay in the best places we have visited hotels all over Italy. We are very selective with our choices. It has taken years of experience to weed out the good hotels from the great, so you can trust that we stand behind the services we recommend. We only choose accommodations where we would wish to stay ourselves. We look for high standards of personal service and attention to detail.
Are meals included in the Amalfi Best Italy Family Trip?
We understand that local food is an important component of any trip. Everybody has different tastes and we have found that our guests enjoy the spontaneity of discovering restaurants on their own. As a result, we intentionally do not include any meals in the itinerary to allow you the freedom to mix with the locals. Nevertheless, your guide is happy to recommend restaurants and advise on local specialties.
How far ahead do I need to book my trip with you?
We are a boutique tour planning company. We do not sell someone else’s trip but we create, plan and run our own luxury journeys. Our philosophy is that we focus on quality rather than quantity therefore, we tend to get booked up very quickly. We encourage you to make your reservation just as early as possible especially, if you are limited to the time period in which you can travel. Reservations are made on a first come, first served basis. The further in advance you are able to make your arrangements the more likely we can secure the holiday you want. This is especially important if you wish to visit Italy during the busy summer and holiday times. Some holiday periods (Easter and school half term weeks, public holidays and the peak summer months) can get booked up very quickly. If you know you want to travel at this time it is a good idea to contact us at your earliest convenience to ensure the dates of your choice are available.
Do I need travel insurance?
Travel insurance is for your protection in the case of an unforeseen event which delays or prevents travel. Nancy Aiello Tours strongly recommends that you purchase a comprehensive travel insurance with many coverage options from basic trip cancellation insurance to full coverage which includes emergency medical assistance. It is very important that you protect your vacation investment in case of trip cancellation/interruption, travel luggage delay or loss of luggage and medical expenses. Travel Insurance gives you peace of mind in safeguarding your investment in the event of a cancellation prior to or during your trip.
A comprehensive travel insurance gives you coverage for unforeseen problems, from a cancelled flight to a serious illness. If an illness, accident, or other covered unforeseen circumstance forces a traveler to cancel or interrupt their plans, they face two major financial losses, money invested in nonrefundable pre-payments, and medical expenses that in many instances may not be covered by health insurance.
Do you combine people to share a 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. Our private tours are exclusive to one booking party and we do not combine separate reservations to form groups.

Ann was brilliant to book with. She was extremely efficient and provided expert guidance and advice when booking. As a family we thought both tours were terrific. We loved the mask making workshop and the trip to Murano to visit a glass factory.
Elisabetta was brilliant with children. She came down to their level and involved them all the way. I loved the fact she started off showing them a map of Venice and gave them lots of fun quiz questions throughout. It made them active learners without them knowing it. She was fun, polite and a pleasure to have spent the afternoon with. I would thoroughly recommend her.
Samuele tour was good too. Both were very special. The girls had lots of fun and learnt lots. His expert knowledge in finding the right places to do these activities which would suit children was evident and very appreciated. Again, I would recommend him.
I found the tours on the Internet when looking specifically for tours with children in mind. We are already thinking of using you when we visit Tuscany next year!
The only thing I perhaps would have liked would have been a plan of what the tour guides were going to do so we could plan our other days a little better and not repeat anything. Luckily we had not really visited Murano yet but if we had, we would have then repeated the experience.
Apologies for the late feedback. We certainly look forward to using you again.
Please express our thanks to Ann, Elisabetta and Samuele for their parts in our experience. It has been a pleasure dealing with you. Thank you for all your advice and time.
Hello. I apologize for this tardy reply, but did want to get back to you about our tour. Everything about the experience was excellent, and I thought the tour was a good value. Our guide (Lucia) was terrific the perfect mix of energy and humor for our kids, and knowledge and insider info for the adults. My husband was skeptical about getting a private guide but was very pleased with how it turned out and agreed it was the best way. My 11 year old daughter cites our Vatican tour as the highlight of our trip to Rome. And my 6 year old son still can tell people how many heads he counted in the gallery with Lucia! I appreciated how quickly I was able to make the arrangements with your office (less than a week before our visit) and also I appreciated that before Lucia said goodbye to us she made sure we knew how to continue to explore St. Peters (we wanted to climb to the top of the dome) and she did not just abandon us at the exit from the Sistine Chapel.
Overall it was terrific, and just writing this makes me want to start planning our next trip back. I would absolutely recommend your company to anyone visiting Rome! Many thanks,
