I wanted to follow up on our tours we had last week. We had an absolute wonderful experience with both of our guides. They truly made our trip to Italy wonderful. We loved Lucia in Rome; the kids will never forget her. We are so thankful we were able to spend three days with her. Please extend our thanks and appreciation to her!
We also had a great experience with Stephania in Pompeii. She kept our tired and hot children engaged and happy the entire time, which as a parent, is priceless! We will absolutely recommend your company to anyone traveling to Italy. We wish you were in more countries!! Thanks again,

I travel with my kids constantly and so far this has been the best tours we have been on. We took a tour in Rome and Florence. Both were outstanding. I couldn’t believe how engrossed both guides were able to keep our kids. Just when they might lose them they would ask a question or pull out a visual. I feel like myself, my husband, and my three kids (13, 10, and 7) got a ton out of both tours. We learned a lot and saw a lot. Often when visiting European cities we get lost and turned around walk to much and just plain wear our kids out. The beauty of the tour is the guide knows exactly where they are going and you will see tons of attractions and sights in a short period of time. What we saw in 4 hours would have taken us 4 days!
We enjoyed our tours very much and would recommend them. Our overall experience with Nancy Aiello Tours was excellent. The booking process was exceptionally easy and quick. We very much appreciated the quick responses as we attempted to schedule dates for the tours. The tours were excellent. We especially loved our tour guide for the Rome Colosseum and Vatican Museum tours. She was particularly attentive to our children and always tried to make the information interesting to them. She was very conscious of when they needed breaks to sit or have a snack. If we were going back, I would definitely want her again. Our other guides were also very good, but our Rome guide was exceptional. My sister in law found your information on the internet. I suspect she may have found it through the Lonely Planet website. We were specifically looking for tour guides who were good with children since we wanted to make this experience interesting and informative for them.
