TESTIMONIALS

  • Venice Children Tours

    Ann was brilliant to book with. She was extremely efficient and provided expert guidance and advice when booking.
    As a family we thought both tours were terrific.
    Elisabetta was brilliant with children. She came down to their level and involved them all the way. I loved the fact she started off showing them a map of Venice and gave them lots of fun ‘quiz’ questions throughout. It made them active learners without them knowing it. She was fun, polite and a pleasure to have spent the afternoon with. I would thoroughly recommend her.
    Samuele’s tour was good too. He set up the mask making workshop and a trip to Murano to visit a glass factory. Both were very special. The girls had lots of fun and learnt lots. His expert knowledge in finding the right places to do these activities which would suit children was evident and very appreciated. Again, I would recommend him.
    I found the tours on the Internet when looking specifically for tours with children in mind. We are already thinking of using you when we visit Tuscany next year!
    The only thing I perhaps would have liked would have been a plan of what the tour guides were going to do so we could plan our other days a little better and not repeat anything. Luckily we hadn’t really visited Murano yet but if we had, we would have then repeated the experience.
    Apologies for the late feedback. We certainly look forward to using you again.
    Please express our thanks to Ann, Elisabetta and Samuele for their parts in our experience. It has been a pleasure dealing with you. Thank you for all your advice and time.

  • Old Rome Children Tour

    Vatican Children Tour

    We appreciate the service you provided.  While it was expensive, it was worth it.  The skip the line feature at the Vatican and Coliseum was quite the time and sanity saver.  We had our 4 and 6 year olds with us and we knew they would have a limited amount of energy for sightseeing.  We didn’t want to waste it in line.  Plus, it was quite fun walking past all the people who had stood in line for 2 hours.  We only had 2 full days to spend in Rome and would not have seen and done as much as we did without our tour guide.  Our guide was Catia and she was wonderful.  She was patient with our kids.  She was very personable.  She gave us a background and history of the places we visited and pointed out things regular sightseers wouldn’t notice.  We enjoyed our time spent with her immensely.  At one point, our 4 year old was tired and cranky and hungry for Nutella.  Catia remembered there was a place nearby that had a Nutella pizza and called ahead to confirm.  That pizza was probably our kids’ favorite meal in Italy and it averted a major meltdown.  We were appreciative of Catia’s thoughtfulness.
    It’s difficult with small children on a regular tour as they have their own special needs and pacing, but having a private tour with Nancy Aiello was the way to make everyone happy.
    I would most definitely recommend Nancy Aiello Tours to my family and friends.  We saw and experienced more than we would have in Rome than under any other circumstance.  We were quite pleased with the experience.
    I googled Rome for children and you were recommended in several travel sites and blogs.  We looked at your website and saw that a couple of your tours looked exactly what we wanted.
    Thank you.  We were very pleased.

  • Best of Rome Children Tour

    Hi Nancy
    We visited Rome in July and had Lucia as our tour guide and everything was so brilliant. Lucia was just divine with my daughters aged 10 and 12 and they now think of her as their older sister. My husband and I found her extremely charming and very knowledgeable. Lucia imparted facts to the girls in a way that they understood, were interested and remember to this day. My husband and I have been to Rome many times and we felt as though we were seeing it for the first time. Lucia is a natural!
    I would recommend this tour to anyone. It was completely worth the money and we enjoyed everything about it.
    Thanks again for a wonderful day.
    Kind regards
    PS My girls send their love to Lucia.
