Our review of "Rome Illuminated" is long overdue, but it's better late than never ... and ... I just could not pass on the opportunity to share our experience with others. It’s been more than six months since we’ve returned from our vacation but to this day we are still talking about the awesome European holiday we had and Rome... More

Rome Illuminated was recommended to us by our sister-in-law. We were certainly glad we took her advice! We had about three days in Rome and wanted to make the most of our stay. We corresponded with Lauren by email for several months prior to our arrival. She was very helpful and made several recommendations for our trip including where to... More

We booked two tours with Rome Illuminated and thoroughly enjoyed both. Our Rome at Dusk walking tour was delightful and informative. As recommended, it was a good tour at the beginning of our stay in Rome as it hit some of the highlights and provided some overview of history and development. It was fun walking through the old, narrow streets... More

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

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
