Please do share this with Ann. We learned about Nancy Aiello Tours through Ciao Bambino on line while searching for kid friendly guides to Rome. We had about 6 to choose from and I chose yours after reading the reviews.
Ann was absolutely indispensable in planning our trip. She was very friendly and not only welcomed our questions, but answered ALL of them promptly and in an exceptionally organized manner. She is very efficient and you are lucky to have her on your team. She could not have made planning our time in Rome easier than she did. She even helped me choose a hotel. I asked for recommendations for hotels with pools knowing that my children would want to relax after sightseeing. These are apparently hard to find in Rome but she suggested several. I would just like to add our hotel to your list of hotels with pools in Rome. The Crown Plaza Hotel at St. Peter’s. While it was an American Hotel off the beaten path, it was luxurious and very accommodating especially for the price. We took both public transportation and cabs to get to the city and the Vatican.
Lucia was also an excellent tour guide in Rome and we enjoyed being with her every day. Her knowledge of the city was expansive and almost unbelievable. We all appreciated her laid back manner and her efforts in always trying to engage our boys.
I will definitely recommend your company to others traveling abroad especially those with children. Thank you for your services and giving me the opportunity to write this review.
