Everything has been first class and I would absolutely recommend you (I actually already did to one of the hotel guests!)
The information given, the booking process was very simple.
Our guide SAM was so so so fantastic! We loved him – he was informative, funny, patient, kept the kids attention and we really felt looked after and lovely being ‘away from the crowds’. And a lovely end was being dropped off at a local pizza restaurant (great food and price) and even a toilet stop in one of the local bars was a great experience even for 5 minutes – very Italian atmosphere! Please thank Sam on our behalf! I came across the Nancy Aiello Tours from the internet – I googled tours with kids/family tours.
FLORENCE TO CORTONA AND AREZZO PRIVATE DAY TRIP
Gain insights into two well-preserved medieval Tuscan towns on this Florence to Cortona and Arezzo private day trip. Leave Tuscany’s busy capital behind and travel through the countryside with your personal driver/guide. Experience the highlights and delights of Cortona and Arezzo, two beautiful art towns linked to historical past traditions. Your day trip starts with hotel pickup by private vehicle for the 1-hour drive (traffic pending) from Florence to Cortona, made word-famous by Frances Mayes author of the Under the Tuscan Sun book. Enjoy the rolling Tuscan landscape of vineyards and cypresses en route. During the scenic journey your expert driver/guide provides a comprehensive and informative introduction to the colorful history and traditions of the area with insider anecdotes and knowledge, pointing out top sites and hidden gems.
Cortona is a small walled town perched atop a hill. The town offers sweeping views out over the surrounding countryside. Wander its cobbled streets and walk back in history. Feel the atmosphere of this medieval town enclosed by its original towering city walls. Cortona is also known for its excellent trattorias. Your driver/guide will be glad to suggest delicious choices, or you can let your taste buds be your guide. The choice is entirely yours! You will then head to Arezzo, where you will explore its well preserved historic center. The charm of Arezzo is twofold as it receives a fraction of the tourists of neighboring Florence and yet it has all the fascinating ambience of a well-preserved small city with stunning architecture, moving art and winding streets. At the same time Arezzo is a beloved and well used shopping town, especially if you like to browse quirky old antique stores, fine jewelry and leather goods.

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
Our overall experience with Nancy Aiello Tours was outstanding. No way to describe the experience in a single word. From the start, you made the logistics of learning about your tours, and the administration of ordering quite simple. Our tour guide made us feel welcome and comfortable from the very first moment we met her, and made us feel part of her special family. She was bright, knowledgeable, articulate and had a great sense of humor. We couldn’t have picked a more congenial person as our team partner. Please pass on our thanks and compliments to her. I would absolutely recommend Nancy Aiello Tours to our family and friends.
