We did two tours and transfers with Rome Illuminated, Lauren was most helpful and patient with all the bookings, Evan was fabulous as our guide of the major attractions and then the next day he took us on a food and wine tour eating some of the most fantastic food ever. Evan is American born but Italian at heart, and... More

We had a very nice tour with Evan. He is fun! Gave us options on top of our options and it was great visiting Rome with a local. It felt as if we were hanging around with a friend.

We were in Rome on June 6 while on a cruise. We only had one day to see Rome and Evan made it happen! It was the best tour of our entire cruise. Lauren was excellent in helping us book and plan the tour and Evan made Rome come alive. We were met at the ship by the driver, who... More

Evan Firestone did a great job on our trip to Rome June 4-8. He worked with us prior to arrival to customize two tours, which were wonderful. The communication was great, too. Evan took the time to find out what we wanted to do, and then made several suggestions. His knowledge of local customs and history make his tours fantastic.... More

Rome Illuminated arranged a few tours for our Italy trip and they really were the highlights of our vacation. Lauren is so accommodating and communicative. It was very easy to make all the arrangements. Our guides were all fantastic. We had Leith take us through Chianti Classico for wine tasting. We spent a full day with her visiting wineries, the...

Lauren was very responsive and helpful with all of our requests. Our tour guide, Kristian, was awesome!! He was very very knowledgeable and provided us with a fabulous fun filled experience. We will... More

Up front the R.I.did a good job in preparing my trip. The communication was prompt, clear and helpful. I booked a 6 hr tour that is customized for me, and a day trip to 3 locations northwest of the city. This was my 3rd time in Rome, and my guide still managed to awe me with the wonders of the...

We had the great pleasure of taking a walking food and market tour with Evan on our recent trip to Rome, and it was one of the highlights of our visit. We were welcomed at a hand-picked selection of fabulous, off-the-beaten-track restaurants, cafes, food vendors and markets -- all while learning about and enjoying the history, architecture of the city....

Our family (16 years to 75 years) had a fabulous afternoon with Evan in the area around Forum Romanum (plus plus). Having been to Rome many times before, we were not sure we really needed a guide, but this was definitely worth it. The whole place came alive in a totally different way than if we had just walked around... More

In our 40+ years of travel we have never had a better tour experience. Lauren was friendly, courteous and efficient in the preparation of our tours and Evan was punctual, knowledgeable and genuinely enthusiastic about the subject matter of each day's tour. Evan also went above and beyond his duties as a guide to assist and advise us on other... More
