TESTIMONIALS

  • Family Rome Night Tour

    It was a fantastic tour. My family and I really enjoyed it. See below for more comments. Our overall experience with Nancy Aiello Tours was excellent. Lornia was fantastic. She gave us a wonderful perspective on the Roman landmarks and the history behind them too. My son, Christopher (12) mentioned that the tour was the highlight of the vacation to Rome. It was fantastic. The tour allowed us to see so much of Roman that we hadn’t had a chance to see in a very short time – only 3 hours. The keyhole, the fountain, the outside of St John Lateran Church (it was closed, unfortunately), and of course the Colosseum, Piazza Navona, and many other locations that we drove past. Both Lornia and our driver were very flexible, and asked us what we wanted to do and see so it worked out perfectly. The tour was our last scheduled activity in Rome. We flew home Friday afternoon, so we closed out the vacation on a high note. I would absolutely recommend you to my family and friends.

  • Italy Family Vacation Package

    We had a wonderful time in Italy. Your guides were fantastic. Marco was extremely knowledgeable about Florence and all of the art and architecture in the City. He was able to engage my 80-year-old parents and my teenage sons. Stephania was a fabulous guide in Pompeii. She had tremendous energy and enthusiasm for the subject matter and really made ancient Pompeii come to life for us. Lucia was just as fabulous as Marco and Stephania. She had lots of great things to tell us about Rome, ancient life in Rome, Roman history and all of the art and architure. Her tour of the Vatican was superb. My whole family can’t stop talking about how great all of your guides were. They really made the trip. All of your drivers were extremely friendly and accommodating. I will recommend your tour company to everyone! Thank you!

  • Vatican Children Tour

    Hi Rachel,
    Last week my family took a tour of the Vatican with one of your guides. She was excellent! Could you remind me what her name was again? (Lucia? Luciana? cannot remember). Please help us let her know our feedback. She was outstanding – very interesting, brought what would have been a very dry subject matter for a child to life! My son enjoyed it very, very much – as did we.
    We are now in Florence and have taken with another company a couple of tours supposedly designed for children and the guides are nowhere as good as Luciana. She was patient and gave just the right amount of information to engage, educate and entertain without overwhelming us. My son’s comments in comparison was “Luciana did not talk me to like I am 3 years old!” He found the others boring, too childish etc. She is a tough act to follow! Once again, thanks for organising! Please convey out thanks to her.
    After our wonderful experiene with Luciana at the Vatican, we’d love to try another tour with your company for Venice.
    Thank you very much!
    Regards
