Are hotels included in the Best Florence Tuscany Family Tour Package?

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.

We only choose accommodations where we would wish to stay ourselves. We look for high standards of personal service and attention to detail.

Recently due to increased security concerns, new screening procedures were put in place for entry to the popular sites. Due to increased security measures ALL visitors must pass through security checks and metal detectors, even those with skip the line access.

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 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. Our private tours are exclusive to one booking party and we do not combine separate reservations to form groups.

Italy Family Vacation Package
I apologize for not yet contacting you regarding our tours.. We were in the UK for a time after Italy, however we have now been home in Canada for 2 weeks and I had planned to write a letter as soon as I got home.
I will fill in your questionnaire as requested but wanted to tell you that your tours were absolutely excellent! The quality of guide, the small group, the attention and interest in the children really made them outstanding and as we only had a week in Rome, really allowed us to fit so much more interest and value into our time! I have already given your contact information to two families.
I particularly wanted to express how fabulous Lucia and Lauren were as tour guides (Ancient Rome and Vatican respectively). They both were extremely enthusiastic about their subject â€“ passionate would be the word, and they both presented the history in the form of story which really caught the childrenâ€™s interest (and to be honest the adults too). THE two other families that were with us for Ancient Rome particularly asked me to send a note stating how fantastic Lucia was.
As you know we made a last minute change to our Pompeii tour reducing the hours and adding a drive to Sorrento. All three families agreed that this combination of Pompeii and Sorrento really made the day â€“ a great balance and contrast and we are so glad we had that opportunity. For future clients I would highly recommend that consultants recommend this combination, as I think it was better than either trip alone. The last minute flexibility was appreciated.
Also, Alfredo and Nina had told the children that we would be e-mailed the recipes they made so that they could make them again. I have not received those so maybe you could check into that as the children want to get together and do that. Also we said we would send Alfredo and Nina some photos which I understood to send through you. I have not yet even downloaded our photos but wanted to check if this is appropriate and if so will send those on once I have them.
Again I wanted to express our great satisfaction with our tours and to particularly comment on the excellence of Lucia and Laura. We will definitely pass your contact information to friends going to Rome or Florence!
With many thanks,Lenora Moore
Vatican Children Tour
I will rate every category as Excellent. Ms. Lucia was wonderful with our children ages 10 and 12. She kept them engaged and interested in what could have been a very overwhelming tour. Our whole family loved the tour!
I heard about your tour by Googling “Vatican with kids” or “Vatican with children”. Two tour guides came up consistently–Nancy Aiello and one other tour guide. The reason I chose Nancy Aiello tours was because of all the positive testimonials on the website.
Ms. Lucia also gave us an excellent suggestion for lunch. I have already posted my comments on Trip Advisor. Since there is not a specific section for Nancy Aiello under “Things to Do” in Rome, you would need to put it in their search section.
We had a perfect day with Ms. Lucia. I love hearing my kid repeat tidbits of information she told us on the tour. Thanks so much!
Finally, I very much appreciated the communication aspect of your company. EXCELLENT, efficient, prompt communication to each and every question I had.Elaine Chyrklund
