We are definitely going to review our tour on trip advisor upon our return home. Our driver was incredibly punctual, professional and helped make our experience amazing including his recommendations for lunch. We were well taken care of and really appreciated the care he took when driving around…made us feel very safe! Our guide in the ruins of Pompeii was incredibly knowledgeable and really provided us insight into what life would have been like. The ruins she showed us were first rate and she moved us through massive crowds expertly so we felt at times we were the only ones on Pompeii. We would definitely recommend your services to anyone including family and friends. Thank you for a most amazing experience! I originally found you by chance on the Internet and it worked out wonderfully for us! Thank you! Please pass on our thanks and praise to your staff who helped us enjoy our day so much!

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.

MORE EXPERIENCES TO INSPIRE YOUR ITALIAN VACATION
Having taken the Vatican tour with Lucia last September, it was a pleasure to see her again and to take the Ancient Rome tour with her. My grandson had never been to Rome and he was most impressed with all Lucia had to tell us. Claudio is an excellent driver and always found the perfect parking spot. My daughter and grandson took the Vatican tour with Lucia, which I had taken before, and once again, they had a wonderful, informative afternoon. In Florence, we were pleased with the time spent with Mariana, who is also a very knowledgeable, interesting guide. We were interested in local dining and she was most helpful with suggestions.
When friends go to Italy, I always suggest taking a tour with your company and I know of one couple who will be doing so in the fall.
I hope you will pass my comments on to Lucia, Claudio and Mariana.
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.
