My children and I enjoyed our tours very much!
Our overall experience was fantastic!
The booking process was easy. The person I communicated with, Ann, was very professional and helpful. Both tours were great. Our guides for each tour Cynthia for the Vatican, Laura for the Colosseum were very knowledgeable and interesting. They kept my children engaged, and moved the tour along at a pace that worked well for us. My children said they’d rather learn about the world with private tour guides like the ladies we met in Rome, than by going back to their classrooms. I would you recommend Nancy Aiello Tours to families and friends. I came across Nancy Aiello Tours through Ciao Bambino website. Thanks for providing such a wonderful service. Our trip to Rome and our understanding of the various sites would not have been the same without your excellent tour guides.

Do you combine people to share the tour?
All our tours are private 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.
Do we stop for lunch on tour?
Yes. Along the way, there will be plenty of opportunities for lunch, depending on what your tastes are. Some people like to grab a quick pizza or a snack, and some people like to sit down for a nice relaxing meal. Either is an option, but just know that if we sit down for a relaxing meal we might have to move faster to get in the rest of the sights.
The duration of the tour includes time for a quick snack and/or lunch. The cost of the meal is not included in the tour price.
Do we skip the line to enter the Coliseum?
Yes. This tour includes entrance tickets to skip the line. Your tickets will be pre-booked and prepaid for fast hassle-free entry.
Please Note: For safety reasons even with booking reservations, there is still a compulsory security check which may cause some delays in entering the Coliseum. Recently, due to increased security measures, new screening procedures were put in place for entry to the Colosseum. For safety reasons ALL visitors must pass through security checks and metal detectors, so even with reservations there is still a compulsory security check which may cause some delays in entering the site. Because of the security measures, the line for entry may be quite long during peak seasons and holidays. However, no time will be wasted. Your experienced guide will use this time to provide an overview and contextualization for the tour.
Does your skip the line tour of the Coliseum go to the underground level or the 3rd tier?
The Colosseum does not allow any company to conduct private visits to the underground areas. The underground and third tier level access of the Colosseum is run exclusively by the Colosseum and only available for those joining group tours. Therefore, the visit of these areas are NOT included in our private tours.
What happens if a site is unexpectedly closed on the day of scheduled tour?
We are NOT liable for reduced itineraries owing to unscheduled closures by attractions. Unscheduled closures do not depend on us, but on the administration of the sites visited on the tour. In the event of an unexpected closure of a site or attraction your guide will promptly provide an alternative itinerary. While we regret these inconveniences, these rare unforeseen closures are beyond our control for which we cannot be held responsible therefore no refunds will be issued.
The Colosseum is subject to occasional last minute closures without notice due to rain, assembly meetings, strikes or other factors. If it happens your guide will modify the itinerary working with the circumstances given. While we regret this inconvenience, the unforeseen closure of the Coliseum is beyond our control for which we cannot be held responsible therefore, no refunds will be issued.
MORE EXPERIENCES TO INSPIRE YOUR ITALIAN VACATION
Best of Rome Tour Customized to Your Desires!
All I can say is Thank You. The experience we had was nothing short of excellent. It started with Rachel and her responding to all my needs. As for our driver, Fabio, if this is the kind of drivers you employ, you’ll continue to have great success. He was by far the best driver I’ve ever experienced and with all my travel, I’ve experienced many. Great job with Fabio. As for our tour guide, everyone and I mean everyone should be so lucky. Her name was Lucia and all four of us felt not only did she possess unbelievable knowledge, we felt like she was family. Her ability to manage us, the time we had and that we wanted to see was fantastic. We HIGHLY recommend Lucia to everyone. As I close, I feel these words fall short of what we experienced. To say we would recommend Nancy Aiello Tours would be an understatement, in fact, I’ve already recommended Nancy Aiello Tours, Fabio and Lucia to several friends planning a trip in the coming months.
Thank you again, and feel free to use me as an endorsement at any time.
My family thoroughly enjoyed our time spent on the tours of Rome with Nancy Aiello Tours three weeks ago. Our tour guide Mariella was absolutely WONDERFUL (and so was our driver on the first evening tour). We never felt rushed and both were so accommodating to the various needs of my family including bathroom breaks as well as pizza & gelato stops. I was thrilled when we had the same tour guide for all of our tours in Rome. She really got to know us – which was no easy feat considering we had 4 generations present on this trip. I wished that there was Nancy Aiello tours in the other countries we visited on this trip! I will absolutely use NA when visiting Rome again and will recommend using your company to all my friends. Thank you so very much for being so patient with me as I decided which tours I wanted to take.
