Thanks for your email, now that we are back in the states I am happy to share some feedback.
Overall experience: terrific, would highly recommend
Booking process: most grateful for thorough, timely responses and attention to detail. felt completely well prepared for our tours before we left.
Tour experience: simply amazing. made all the difference in our trip to have participated in these tours. cinzia was a MARVELOUS tour guide; not only was her expertise astounding and her storytelling riveting, but she did a simply phenomenal job of catering to our group, which included some adults who were very interested in the subject matter, two four-year-olds with limited understanding of what they were seeing (and jet lag, and tired little legs), and some distracted parents! she met every single one of us at our own level, with grace and good humor, and made rome so magical for us all. our kids gave her big hugs at the end our last tour and later told us they missed her. i was amazed after we got home to hear my son recounting the stories she shared with us, and for my daughter to be able to point out symbols and images we had learned about at the vatican museums. cinzia was just wonderful and i cannot have imagined our trip without her wonderful guidance!
Would strongly recommend nancy aiello tours to family and friends, and will look into you again should we book more travel!
Came across nancy aiello tours through google, was encouraged by tripadvisor reviews.
Thank you again so very much and please send our best wishes and gratitude to cinzia!

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.

Will be looking to you for more tours in the future. I came across Nancy Aiello Tours googling Mandarin Chinese Tours Rome.
Dear Nancy Aiello Team,
I learned about your tour company from my friend Lucinda Kang who used your guides in Rome. She was the person who suggested getting a private guide to get the most of our Italy for our family. We signed up for 2 tours in Rome and 1 in Florence and had 3 different guides. We thought all of the guides were very knowledgeable, comfortable with our children and answering questions. We also liked the very thorough historical and cultural perspective. Sometimes, our kids got a little bored, but it was easy to draw them back into the tour with interesting info. We really lucked out with weather on all of our dates and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Thank you!
