We took two Roman Candle tours-the Roman Colosseum tour and the Vatican tour. Both were excellent! The Vatican tour had Lucia as our host and consisted of just 5 people. Lucia did a great job of showing us the key spots and avoiding the masses of people, while explaining the more important sights in interesting and understandable terms. She also... More

At this moment we should be on a Roman Candle Semi-private Vatican Tour. It was booked, paid for, and confirmed on January 30, 2015. While on vacation, I received an e-mail on May 12 (3 days ago) that they were cancelling the tour and one other we had booked because there were only 2 scheduled for the tour. No where... More

Because it was our Family's first visit to Rome, we wanted someone to guide us through the Vatican and through the Colosseum and we could not have asked for a better guide than Filipo! He was extremely knowledgeable and made sure that our three teenage kids were paying attention by asking them questions throughout the Tour. He even took the... More

One of the best companies I have ever dealt with (and I used to be a travel agent - so I really mean it!). We were 2 families - 4 adults/4 kids (ages 10/10/10/13) & booked private tours of Coliseum and Vatican in Rome. Easy meeting points, no lines to wait on, and fantastic guides! From Rome we took a...

My family and I went on several private tours in Rome over the Christmas holidays. Our tours included the Vatican, the Colosseum, the Forum, along with a variety of ancient villas and gardens on the outskirts of Rome. We have used various tour companies around the world and I can say Roman Candle Tours is an excellent tour company. Our... More

We toured the Vatican with Lea and the Roman Forum and Colosseum with Brian. Both guides were great. They were very knowledgable and patient with our kids and their million questions. Both guides knew the answer to all of the kids inquiries and kept the information relevant and interesting to keep their attention. Both guides spent an extraordinary amount of... More

My wife and me spent 2 weeks in Italy. Rome,Tuscany, Lucca, Florence, Pisa, Naples, Positano, Capri which included the Blue Grotto. Roman Candle handled all private guides and even fixed us up with a private 36' cabin cruiser to travel from Positano to Capri. Guides in each city we visited were very knowledgeable and were most friendly. The captain on... More
