My husband and I took the semi private guided tour of Ancient Rome and the colosseum today with Richard. Richard was a brilliant guide - professional, courteous, and highly knowledgable. He encouraged and answered all questions. He had a wonderful ability to convey information in a natural story telling manner. We took in so much more of Ancient Rome than... More

I recently requested assistance from Roman Candle Tours during a quick trip to Rome. We had two days in the city and I asked for assistance to get the most out of our time there. Matthew was quick to respond offering options and calling me to personally understand the number of people in my party, when we actually arrived and... More

We have taken Roman Candle Tours of the Vatican Museums and Ancient Rome several times over the years, initially by ourselves and then again with family and friends with whom we have traveled. Each time we have learned something new. Owner Matt is extremely helpful, communicates quickly and provides a fine service. Guides Richard and Brian are marvelous and fountains... More

Both of our guides, Richard and Filipo brought ancient Rome to life with their knowledge and interesting anecdotes. We had signed up for semi-private tours of both the Vatican and Colosseum, and had a totally private tour as we were there in January--low season for travel and a wonderful time to see the city. Both guides were right on time,... More

Rome is wonderful but its made a more richer experience by taking a Roman Candle Tour. Let a 'local' give you the goss on all things ancient and if you need to all things modern Rome. Our guide Richard took us through the Roman Forum and onto the Colosseum. It was interesting but not too over the top and he... More

Our family of 4, including two teenage boys, are so grateful to Vanessa for being our guide when we were in Rome, we will never forget her. I don't know if Vanessa is still there but when we called the tour company, we'd just had a bad experience with a different company so we were clear with them about what... More

I must confess that I wasn´t sure about whether this would be a scam (paying in advance, doing all by internet...) maybe the guide would never show up and we would end just loosing our money... No worries there. Let me tell you that this was the best thing that we could have done ever. We took the tour for... More

There were 6 of us on a three week vacation to Italy. We booked semi-private tours with Roman Candle Tours in Venice, Florence and Rome (yes, they cover more than just Rome). We had an opportunity to discuss our itinerary with Matthew and he was very accommodating. The guides in all three cities were very knowledgeable, in fact, several had... More

Rome was nice, but what made it GREAT was the personal touch and professionalism that we received with Roman candle tours. We had an incredible guide--with a lovely accent--who took us through the main historical points in Rome and we didn't have to wait in any of the line ups!! I have been to Rome many times but this was... More

We were very limited in time due to travel schedule and Roman Candle worked with our time limitations and gave us the perfect tour! The guide (Shane) was friendly, extremely knowledgeable , worked with what we wanted to see and made sure we didn't miss out. It was such a great experience I would recommend it to everyone going to... More
