Excellent experience – from the booking through the actual tours. We appreciated having the same tour guide (Laura) for both our evening tour and our walking tour of old Rome. Our experience with Nancy Aiello Tours was enlightening. I booked the tours because it was my family’s first visit to Rome and I wanted to ensure that they had an understanding of the history and saw the highlights. My sister and I have been to Rome several times (walking with a guide book, taking big bus tours for a day, etc) but we “saw” so much more on our tours with Laura. I have already recommended you to a colleague who will be in Rome with his family in November. I had googled “what to do with kids in Rome” and found a mommy travel blog that recommended your agency, so I took a look at your website and decided to ask some questions (less than 2 weeks before our arrival in Rome). We were fortunate enough to book 2 different tours.

Custom Lucca Private Half-Day Tour from Florence
Our experience with Nancy Aiello Tours was the highlight of our trip to Rome. Our guide was really knowledgeable and able to adapt and please us (the parents), a 17 year old boy and a 7 year old girl. Which is asking a lot!! She made the day interesting and fun! I feel we learned things that we would have never found in a large guided tour or through audio or guide books. It was great that she was able to navigate around long lines and bring us to the places that were of interest to us. We didn’t have a lot of time before our trip to make plans for our stay in Rome, which was fine because you did everything for us. It felt like we were out with a friend showing us Ancient Rome, just happened that that friend was extremely knowledgeable!
Would definitely recommend Nancy Aiello Tours – really worth it if you are busy and don’t have the time to do a lot of research before traveling (which you need to do as there is so much that Rome has to offer). Fantastic for kids as it wasn’t just a lot of information thrown at us but it was information that all of us found really interesting. Our guide was able to lead us and answer questions about what we found interesting instead of just throwing facts our way. My son said it was the highlight of his trip to Rome and my daughter is telling everyone all the things that our Guide told her!!
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!
