Thank you for contacting me. I was planning on providing you feedback on our visit, so now is that time. Our overall experience with Nancy Aiello tours was very favorable. Booking Process. Same. Tour Experience. Terrific. Lucia was an EXCELLENT guide. Very considerate and kind, very knowledgeable, very good at everything. We loved being with her and were supper happy that she was selected to be our guide. Federico, our driver, was the same. On time, courteous, helpful and very attentive to detail. An excellent driver. We were also very pleased that he was selected to be our driver. If Lucia and Federico are examples of those individuals you hire, your organization should really excel. Which culminate in responding to your last inquiry: Would we recommend Nancy Aiello tours to our friends. Our answer: YES

MORE EXPERIENCES TO INSPIRE YOUR ITALIAN VACATION
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!
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.
