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

Evan was perfection from the very first email. He was friendly, accommodating and responded quickly. We corresponded via email a few times until we agreed on what tours we would do, and our itinerary. Our first tour was the evening Rome Illuminated Tour. We got into our hotel around 1:30, unpacked, grabbed a bite, and met Evan in our hotel... More

We took two tours. The evening city tour as the lights came on, honestly was a little heavy with artists names and information for me, but some probably loved that info. The buildings and location were stunning. We also took the Vatican tour at 3pm with Evan, he was very antimated, had information, but didn't overwhelm us. Both tours were... More

Well worth it. We had a great guide, Kristian, who was very informative. It was a great way to spend a few hours and going at night made it even better. Highly recommend this especially if you arrive into Rome during the day. Take a short nap, go out about 6 and then have dinner after the tour.

If you have never been to Rome before or even if you have,I highly recommend Rome Illuminated Guided Tours. They are so attentive to the details in the history behind what you are seeing that it takes you back in time. You can mentally see and feel what it was like in old Rome. Evan you have a great passion... More

During a recent trip to Rome, we scheduled some tours with Rome Illuminated Guided Tours. What a phenomenal group of people!! Through many email conversations prior to the trip, Evan and I made a list of everything I wanted to see while we were there (it was our first visit to Rome). Evan personalized everything and gave us the opportunity... More
