We took the tour of the Vatican and St. Peter's basilica and the Sistine Chapel about a week ago with our guide Alexandra (?) not sure of the spelling - but she was a real delight. We had a wonderful time. Alexandra was very charming and clever, knew the art and how the various works of genius related to others... More

Four of us were in Rome at the end of a biking tour of the Puglia region of Italy. Our biking company, VBT, put us in touch with Rome Illuminated. We corresponded with Lauren prior to our trip. She was extremely warm, helpful and willing to tailor our tour to our particular interests. She even made dinner reservations for a... More

From the very beginning communication with Lauren was informative and extremely helpful; This was our first visit to Rome and she made herself available for any questions at all that we had about the city. We were a family of 3 -myself and my parents who celebrated their 50th anniversary this year. We took the Rome at Dusk tour with... More

We had a weekend break in Rome, and wanted to ensure we saw a decent amount during our stay. After checking the net and here, I found Rome Illuminated Guided Tours. A quick email and we had a reply quickly with their offers. We settled for joining a group tour, lead by Nicola. A great tour 2.5 to 3 hours,... More

We took several tours with Evan while in Rome. He was great, he is very friendly and easy to be with. He took us on a tour of Rome at dusk, which was so beautiful. The next day we did a 3 hour tour of the city, including the Colosseum, San Clemente basilica and Villa Farnesina. He is very knowledgable... More

Rome Illuminated was recommended to us by a friend; and we do the same to all who intend to make their Rome trip worthwhile. At the onset, our communications with Evan was promptly responded and were also provided with valuable detailed information on what we could do in Rome. We had a short stay in Rome and therefore opted only... More

Thank you Evan, Leah, and Christian. You made Rome awesome for us! Rome is so filled with amazing sites and history that it was nice to have people who were endless vaults of knowledge to show us some great things (San Clemente church, colosseum, forum, Vatican, food and market tour), educate us and entertain us. We were impressed and loved... More

On our second day in the city Evan picked us up and took us to see the highlights. It was amazing, he is so well versed on the city, has great enthusiasm, and knows the in's... More

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
