Hello Rachel and Nancy,
I am so sorry I have taken so long to get back to you guys. Our trip to Italy was absolutely wonderful and unforgettable. Our walking food tour of Rome with Luciana was certainly one of the highlights! She was extremely friendly, professional, and knowledgeable. It was like seeing the city with a friend. Not only did we appreciate all the wonderful places she took us to eat and discover, but also loved the historical facts on Rome she shared with us along the way.
As far as the questionnaire below, I would rate each item as excellent. I would definitely recommend Nancy Aiello Tours to family and friends. The way I came across this tour company was by doing a Google search. I saw that USA Today had done a very favorable article on this tour company, and that sealed the deal for me. Thank you again! Cannot wait to use you guys again in the future!
It was a fantastic tour. My family and I really enjoyed it. See below for more comments. Our overall experience with Nancy Aiello Tours was excellent. Lornia was fantastic. She gave us a wonderful perspective on the Roman landmarks and the history behind them too. My son, Christopher (12) mentioned that the tour was the highlight of the vacation to Rome. It was fantastic. The tour allowed us to see so much of Roman that we hadn’t had a chance to see in a very short time – only 3 hours. The keyhole, the fountain, the outside of St John Lateran Church (it was closed, unfortunately), and of course the Colosseum, Piazza Navona, and many other locations that we drove past. Both Lornia and our driver were very flexible, and asked us what we wanted to do and see so it worked out perfectly. The tour was our last scheduled activity in Rome. We flew home Friday afternoon, so we closed out the vacation on a high note. I would absolutely recommend you to my family and friends.
