    Hello Barbara, Thanks a lot for your kind review. It was a pleasure having you in the Dusk to Dawn Photo Tour. I hope you are having had a wonderful time on the Costiera and the other places you visited in Italy. I hope you'll be back in Rome someday for other tours. Please note that from October on, I will also give multiday workshops and tours in Umbria and Tuscany. Kindly share my Rome Photo Fun Tours site with your friends and colleagues :-) Best regards, Giulio

    I had the pleasure of taking a photo tour of Rome at night with Giulio. It was an absolutely high-quality and very well organized tour, the guide is from Rome and therefore knows his way around there very well. Accordingly, he leads us to excellent photo spots, pays attention to many details such as the best time for photos, the position of the sun and traffic. During the tour he also explains some of the history of Rome's sights and is always happy to help with various camera settings (if desired). I very much hope that he will continue to expand his range of courses and I would be very happy to be able to take part in further tours with him in the future. I had a lot of fun and the photos are absolutely great!

    Dear Matthias, Thanks a lot for this beautiful review. I am very glad you did enjoy my Dusk to Dawn Tour, in these regards, I guess that when you mention the position of the sun you are basically talking about the very last part of the tour, the one we had at sunrise, after several hours of shooting the most iconic locations of Rome made even more beautiful by the colors and mystery of the night. Please let me add It was an absolute pleasure to guide you through the magnificent squares and the narrow back alleys of my town, and it is truly rewarding to know that you took memorable photos. I will look forward to seeing you back in Rome for other tours, and also for the multi-day workshops I will run in Umbria and Tuscani starting this coming November. I will surely keep you updated on those too. Best regards, Giulio

    We had a wonderful time with Giulio! He was so patient with us and took many pictures of me and my cousin. We visited many places at night and had dinner. I highly recommend you to choose Giulio to be your tour guide and photographer. We got so many nice pictures in Rome!

    Hello Ethar, Thanks so much for your very nice review. I am very glad that you and your cousin enjoyed your Private Photo Tour and Workshop in Rome from Dusk to Dawn. I am also happy that besides the many photos you took during our walk, you also enjoyed the photos I took of both of you as we were going from one iconic place to the other. I hope to see you again in Rome sometime in the future for other tours and don't forget that starting October this year, I will also provide multi days tours in Umbria and Tuscany, going to the spectacular ancient and medieval villages and cities in the gorgeous Italian countryside. Food and wine tastings, as much as visits to Master Artisans will also be included. All the best, and thanks again for choosing Rome Photo Fun Tours :-)

    Wow, what an amazing tour. Our guide Giulio was knowledgeable and friendly. He made my 9 year old completely interested and awake the whole night visiting many different landmark until sunrise at the Vatican for the last location. This is the best tour to see Rome without the crowds and have the city to yourself!

    Dear Derek, t hanks a lot for your beautiful review. It was a real pleasure for me to guide you throughout the most iconic places and landmarks in my new "No Heat No Crowds Rome Night Photo Tour". You have a splendid family, a very gentle wife and two great sons!!! It was a lot of fun keeping your energetic little one awake with stories about Rome, and a great pleasure for me to show you how to photograph all the beauty of nocturnal and early morning Rome. I hope you are happy with the shots you got! Come back soon. I will organize a new trip for you in other areas of Italy you have not visited yet :-) Best regards, Giulio
