You beat me to it. I planned on sending an email but with the holiday I was set behind one day and it is birthday week in my house! Me, my husband and my daughter. In either case I cannot begin to thank the hosts Nina & Alfredo for providing a most wonderful experience for the Miller’s. They were apprehensive about going as they are “loners” for the most part. Even down to the hour I believe they were trying to get out of it!! Not so after they arrived and settled in. In fact I got many pictures from that evening. Everything was perfect. It was the best way for them to end their 12 day Italian Fantasy. I specialize in servicing very high end VIP clients. I would like to receive additional info on what your company has to offer. I’m always searching for “over the top” experiences. Thank you again and I look forward to hearing from you.

Custom Tours to Cinque Terre from Florence!
I came across Aiello Tours on the Internet while researching Family Oriented Tours of Italy. Ann, who was precise, through and informative, answered my email in a very timely manner. Needless to say I was very impressed. Over the weeks preceding our trip she helped arrange for family tours of Rome, transportation to and from the airport, as well as a heritage tour from our rented Tuscan Villa. All were executed precisely as requested. All the tours were wonderful, informative and professionally done.
I must make special mention of our Tour Guide in Rome. I cannot say enough about her. She had the unique ability to provide an entertaining tour for the children while at the same time provide a wonderful and informative tour into Roman culture and history. My husband and son-in-law were history majors in college and were thoroughly impressed by the insightful of the tour. We all felt that it was one of the best tours we had ever taken. My family of 9 ages 5yr to 65 yrs would highly recommend Aiello Tours. Thanks we could not have done it without you.
Thank you for an experience we will never forget. Our Vatican tour guide was wonderful. We had 6 children, ages 8 and 15, and she captured their attention with just the right amount of detail. She selected a colorful local restaurant for lunch, which was also a hit with our group. She has wonderful English skills and is very knowledgeable in history and art. I travel a great deal and she is one of the best.
I came across Nancy Aiello Tours via CiaoBambino. Another family member was arranging tours, and having done this before, I was not comfortable with what I was reading in the tour he had selected. Many tours say children friendly which means they throw in a few items for the kids, but it is the usual adult tour. With 6 children I wanted a tour directed to them with the adults on the sidelines. Our guide gave us that, and the children were totally engaged. I would definitely recommend Nancy Aiello Tours to my family and friends.
