  • Private Rome Shore Excursion Rome Children Tour

    Hello, we would definitely recommend Nancy Aiello Tours and would score all areas in the good to excellent range.
    In particular, both the driver and tour guide greatly contributed to our excellent visit to Rome.
    The rome vehicle was very clean and well kept and was a comfortable size for our group.
    The tour guide was very knowledgeable and the private tour allowed us to see the main highlights we wanted in Rome.
    We found your company on the internet while researching travel options for our trip to the Mediterranean. When we booked the tour, we initially thought the price was a bit high, however considering that it was a private tour and given the excellent service we received, it was very good value for money.
    This option fit well with our limited time schedule.

    Laura was our guide. She is fantastic. Very professional and accommodating to us being with a child just 3 years old. Very patient and trying to integrate her and make the tour interesting to her. Laura was also very good at adjusting the tour to the things that interested more to us, and was always able to explain everything we ask about. All the process was very good. I always had a prompt response from the staff to my queries, all the information provided was very helpful. Would definitely recommend the tour. Thanks a lot and please, extend our appreciation and thanks to Laura as well. She is a great tour guide.
