The one thing that made our trip very memorable was our Roman Candle Tour experience, with special Attention to Lucia, our "personal" tour guide!! She went beyond our expectations as a typical guide. Not only did she provide us with very knowledgeable facts... More

My partner and I booked a semi private Colosseum and Roman Forum tour. Initially, we were disappointed as we arrived well before the agreed time and could see no indication of the tour group as directed on the instructions. After contacting the company, it turned out the tour guide was running late. However, any initial disappointment was soon disappeared as... More

My family (including a 20- and 22-year-old) had incredible tour guides through Roman Candle Tours! In Florence, Antonella gave us the Accademia and Best of Florence Tour, which took us from The David, where Antonella told us all about Michelangelo, to the Duomo to the Piazza Della Signoria, to the Ponte Vecchio, with fascinating commentary all along the way. Antonella... More

We enjoyed two wonderful tours with this company. Richard was our guide on the Ancient City tour and Kristiana on the Vatican tour. Both were friendly and very knowledgeable. Although the tours covered a lot, our guides were efficient & interesting, and we never felt rushed. Appreciated Matthew's prompt and informative pre-tour emails. We highly recommend RCT and look forward... More

Our tour was the Forum and Colleseum - oops sorry Amphitheatre Flavivm. (Those who have been, know what I am talking about.). This was by far the best tour we did in Rome. Dani our tour guide was brilliant! She obviously was interested in Rome's history. (Not just spouting rehearsed key facts, like some of the other tour guides we... More

My family booked Roman Candles for our family vacation in Italy (Rome, Florence, and Tuscan region). Matthew, our contact at Roman Candles, gave us detailed information on the tours. He also offered places to stay in our vacation. Overall we were satisfied with their service, especially in Rome. Our tour guide in Rome, Lucia, is an art history major. She... More
