Thank you for contacting me. I was planning on providing you feedback on our visit, so now is that time. Our overall experience with Nancy Aiello tours was very favorable. Booking Process. Same. Tour Experience. Terrific. Lucia was an EXCELLENT guide. Very considerate and kind, very knowledgeable, very good at everything. We loved being with her and were supper happy that she was selected to be our guide. Federico, our driver, was the same. On time, courteous, helpful and very attentive to detail. An excellent driver. We were also very pleased that he was selected to be our driver. If Lucia and Federico are examples of those individuals you hire, your organization should really excel. Which culminate in responding to your last inquiry: Would we recommend Nancy Aiello tours to our friends. Our answer: YES

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.

Good morning! We had such a wonderful experience and are happy to share our thoughts about our time with Laura and Nancy Aiello Tours: We had an absolutely fabulous time with Laura. It was a highlight of our time in Rome. We love Laura! Her insights were essential and provided a really rich understanding to our group of what we were seeing. In addition to being so knowledgeable, she was incredibly fun, thoughtful, and a really wonderful person to spend time with! She tailored her presentations to our exact interests and provided so much more than we could have expected. She also gave us a recommendation to the best meal we had in Rome! Laura is the best; we were so lucky to have her! Without hesitation, we would recommend Nancy Aiello Tours to everyone, and highly recommend Laura. I read about Nancy Aiello Tours on Ciao Bambino’s web site. Thank you so much! And please tell Laura that we loved our time with her and really valued her expertise. She is fantastic!
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!
