Just returned back to USA. In response to your email – one word for ALL“EXCELLENT” – Our guides were terrific and were so knowledgeable. We learned so much and only wished we had more time in Rome – Our cruise line Oceania Riveria was excellent too. I can email you more in detail at a later date but wanted to thank you for your assistance. We would definitely use Nancy Aiello Tours service again and will definitely recommend your services to others without a doubt.
Again, thank you for making our trip to Rome and ,in particular to see the Vatican and also the Pope, an incredible experience for us and one which we will never forget. It was a dream come true and especially since we had a limited amount of time. Again, special thanks to you Rachel for your accommodation to us on this tour. I actually heard about Nancy Aiello Tours from a business associate who gave me a newspaper article some time ago which I saved ……. I believe it was from Newsday LI Newspaper. Also our traveling friends, Joan and Peter Kay were so very pleased and thankful to me that I found you!!!
Have a good day …….now back to work so we can plan another trip – but in the distant future. Also, please extend our personal thanks and appreciation to our guides. They were the best!!!

Custom Tours to Cinque Terre from Florence!
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. We loved the mask making workshop and the trip to Murano to visit a glass factory.
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 tour was good too. 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 had not 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.
I am so sorry I have taken so long to get back to you guys. Our trip to Italy was absolutely wonderful and unforgettable. Our walking food tour of Rome was certainly one of the highlights! Our guide was extremely friendly, professional, and knowledgeable. It was like seeing the city with a friend. Not only did we appreciate all the wonderful places she took us to eat and discover, but also loved the historical facts on Rome she shared with us along the way.
As far as the questionnaire below, I would rate each item as excellent. I would definitely recommend Nancy Aiello Tours to family and friends. The way I came across this tour company was by doing a Google search. I saw that USA Today had done a very favorable article on this tour company, and that sealed the deal for me. Thank you again! Cannot wait to use you guys again in the future!
