We were picked up at our hotel by Danilo. We were happy to see that he spoke English well, which was an important point for us. Danilo did a great job in taking us to the many illuminated sites throughout Rome. The service was so great that on the night that we were out, there was a big concert in... More

Rome Illuminated came highly recommended to us by friends. Our expectations were far exceeded and even our three teens engaged on a level that we didn't expect! Luca in Florence moved us through museums expertly and efficiently while educating all of us with simple quick facts about everything we saw! The way he engaged in a "conversation" with our kids...

We did 3 different tours with this company with three different guides and they were all fantastic. Timely, efficient, knowledgable and friendly. Absolutely no hesitation in recommending them and would use again in a heartbeat. Thank you so much for sharing your passion for your wonderful city with us. And Lauren, your communication is amazing!

We did the walking tour of major sites around the Pantheon. The tour had 11 people on a busy evening in Rome. While our guide seemed knowledge it was almost impossible to hear her. For the cost of 35€ each, the overall experience fell short of expectations.

RomeExpert, Manager at Rome Illuminated Guided Tours, responded to this review

I'm very sorry that your guide had trouble tending to everyone's needs during your group-format tour arranged in conjunction with your tour company, Vermont Bicycle Tours. Our company normally provides only private tours but Vermont Bicycle Tours has asked us to supply some group-format tours on a same-afternoon-booking basis. VBT has agreed to limit these groups to 12 people and... More

I booked the twilight tour, which was three hours with a driver. Evan, tour guide, and driver met us at the hotel promptly at 6. From the start, everything was first class with water bottles waiting in the backseat. We hadn't seen any of Rome, so this tour was a great overview of the highlights. We would get out of... More

My husband and I only had 2 full days in Rome and we wanted to do and experience as much as we could. We took Rome Illuminated Evening Walking tour with a small group the first night we arrived which was a nice way to orient ourselves to the city. The next day I was able to book Evan Firestone...

So my friend and I visited Rome in March. Prior to our trip we were told by other friends that the tours offered by Rome Illuminated would likely be the highlight of the vacation. Firstly, in planning the tour(s) we corresponded through email with Lauren. She was polite, professional (yet not too formal), and served as a great first impression... More
