My family of four (2 adults and children ages 10 and 8) hired Rome Illuminated to take us on two tours during our stay, Ancient Rome and the Vatican. It was the perfect way to see the sights and our guide Evan was FABULOUS. Rome Illuminated was highly recommended from a friend and worth every penny and made our trip... More

I had a personal (one on one) tour of the Vatican with early entrance before the general public was admitted. OMG... I highly recommend it. It was the most amazing experience I have ever had. My tour guide was great and very knowledgeable. If you can - I would urge anyone that visits the Vatican to take the opportunity for... More

Fun and engaging, Evan was a great guide and he crafted a really neat tour for us in our limited time in Rome. He truly loves and knows his city and it shows through his enthusiasm and knowledge. We saw major sights but were also introduced to some of the city's neat little neighborhoods away from the buses and selfie-taking... More

My husband and I had a half day tour planned with Evan, which began at The Basilica. We had just finished seeing the Coliseum when it began to pour along with intense thunder and lightening. Evan quickly hailed a cab and our plans spontaneously changed as we headed to the Pantheon where we were able to watch the rain pour... More

We stayed one week in Rome in which we took 3 private tours with Rome Illuminated: Hidden Rome Night Walk with Christian, Ancient Rome with Evan and Early Access Vatican with Mauritzio. All were amazing - packed full of information which we loved as well as our boys ages 12 and 9. All three guides were prompt, knowledgeable and very... More

Simply put, you have not truly seen Rome until you have taken a tour with Evan Firestone. In all of the initial emails setting up details for our trip, Evan was professional and enthusiastic to help us plan the perfect schedule of activities. He worked to customize our trip to our interests. We were in Rome for roughly 2.5 days.... More

Soooo many thanks to Evan for our transfers, tours, and advice to make our time in Rome exceptional! He showed us the best places to check out on our own, and the tours were top notch. We especially enjoyed the private tour of the Roman Forum and Colosseum with Justin. He was extremely knowledgeable and engaging. It was a relaxing,... More

We spent a few days in Rome, and one of the highlights was definitely the Rome Illuminated Vatican tour. We booked the night before, and we were aware that other companies required more lead time, but Evan was very friendly and accommodating. Our tour guide, Lea, was wonderful, very knowledgeable and friendly. It was a pleasure to spend the afternoon... More

My wife and I had a wonderful time touring Italy for our 25th Anniversary. This was our first visit to Italy. Two of the highlights of our trip were our Rome Illuminated guided tours led by Evan Firestone in Rome and Anna Caruso in Pompeii. Both are extremely knowledgeable, energetic, and friendly. I had done a lot of research prior... More
