Thank you for your note. Our entire experience was fantastic! Booking was so easy and our tour guide Zinnia (I spelled her name wrong so sorry about this it’s a tricky name) was fabulous. She really could relate to my children and engaged them immediately. She really brought Ancient Rome to life for us all. Next time we come to Rome I will most definitely use your company again and ask for Zinnia. Also, our driver was fantastic too. Thank you for a wonderful first experience here in Rome. Kind regards,

Can I join a group tour?
This is not a service we offer. All our tours are private and totally customized to suit your desires, which means that you do not share your tour with anyone else. Our private tours are exclusive to one booking party and we do not combine separate reservations to form groups.
Which wineries will we visit?
We do not have just one set of wineries that we visit, as there are so many great ones! With so many wonderful wineries in this area, there is no reason to put on a “one size fits all” wine tour. We customize the itinerary based on several factors, some of which include, locations of pick-ups, guest wine preferences and available wineries for the day (as they require reservations and all have different days of operation and special event scheduling).
Do we stop for lunch during our private Tuscany excursion?
Yes. The cost of the meal is NOT included in the price. Nevertheless, your private driver/guide would be happy to provide with suggestions for lunch to suit your tastes and budgets.
Are your private vehicles licensed and insured?
Yes. All of our vehicles are officially licensed and insured.
Are your private vehicles non-smoking? Air conditioned?
Yes. All of our vehicles are non-smoking and air-conditioned.

I wanted to thank you for arranging this tour, Ms. Lucia was amazing! We had the time of our lives and Ms. Lucia was extremely informative and very considerate of my elderly mother’s needs to navigate the stairs, stay as cool as possible, avoid the crowds, etc. She carefully explained what we were seeing and brought the items to life with her description and passion for the subject. I could tell she is very accomplished at what she does, not only because of her deep, personal knowledge of the subject, but also since she is so aware of her guests comprehension level, she can quickly sense when to add more explanation if required. All in all, I could not say that anything could have gone better, except possibly having the rest of the tourists stay home for the day and to have more air conditioning! She was simply fabulous, and I would be more than happy to be a reference for you if you would ever think that would be helpful. My mother and I enjoyed discussing the entire time we spent with Ms. Lucia later that day and going over some of the major points she made that we thought were so insightful. I expect we will continue to discuss this for years to come.
All of the arrangements, such as how to meet in the morning, etc, that you set up worked perfectly as well. It was a pleasure to deal with such a professional group as yours.
Again, thanks for making this trip so special. If you could somehow pass on our thanks to Ms. Lucia, I would be most appreciative.
In a word, I thought the tour was fantastic. Linda was knowledgeable and very kid centric. She took us to places that a nine-year-old will remember and it didn’t include a museum! But we all learned something during our tour. I will highly recommend Nancy Aiello to anyone coming to Venice.
