TESTIMONIALS

  • Venice Ghost and Fun Kids Tour

    Hi, We had a great experience with Nancy Aiello Tours. Ann was fantastic and made a very last minute request happen! The booking process was easy and pleasant! Our guide was fantastic and went with the vibe of our crew and adjusted accordingly! We would recommend Nancy Aiello Tours to my family and friends.

  • Rome Family Tour in A Day

    We had an excellent experience with Nancy Aiello Tours. I initially found you online, looking for child friendly tour guides. Your name popped up quite a bit. When I contacted the company, Ann was very responsive to my many questions. We have had many guides in European cities, and my family is quite skeptical as they get bored easily (to be fair, my sons are 3 and 10). Lucia was our guide for 7 hours in Rome, and made even the Vatican interesting for a 10 year old. She was sensitive to my kids’ needs and patience level, and my husband told her she was the best guide we have ever had. $1000 is pricey, but it was worth it to have an engaging guide and skip the lines. I would definitely recommend Nancy Aiello Tours.

  • Custom Venice and Rome Family Tour Package

    Our overall experience was very positive. The booking process was excellent. Everyone at Nancy Aiello tours was extremely responsive to all of our questions (even those unrelated to the tours!). The tours were excellent as well. Samuel did a great job with our tour in Venice. Filippo, who led our tours in Rome, was amazing. He was extremely knowledgeable, organized and gracious – and he did a tremendous job of engaging our boys in the tours. He enhanced our experiences in Rome beyond description. I would absolutely recommend Nancy Aiello Tours to our family and friends.
