Another family member had booked a private Vatican tour with Roman Candle two years ago and were quite pleased. So we decided to do likewise and were certainly not disappointed. Even though it might seem an unnecessary expense to have the private tour, I highly recommend it. Lea did such a good job with our group of 6 ranging in... More

Our first day was to the Vatican, with tour guide Hannah.. she took us through the Vatican Museum, and St. Peter's Basilica, and did a fantastic job of teaching us about the exhibits and the art.

We are very happy with Roman Candle Tours. Matthew, who was the Director for Roman Candle Tours, personally arranged our Sienna and San Gimignano Tour from Florence as well as transportation for our group to the Vatican from Florence. Mathew was very easy to coordinate with and he made the planning for two trips a whole lot easier. We had... More

We have used Roman Candle Tours over the last 6 years and have never been disappointed. We took a private tour of the Forum & Colosseum our first day in Rome and on our last day a private tour of the Vatican. They make it so easy just pre-book, put a deposit down, and the rest paid upon your tour.... More

I couldn't be happier with Roman Candle Tours. I was in Rome last weekend, and went on 3 different tours over the course of 3 days. I booked last minute, which meant I had to use 3 separate tour guides and all 3 were phenomenal! Highly recommend using them!

Philippo was fantastic - excellent english language skills and very very knowledgeable about the sights. This was our group's first time in Rome and everyone was both impressed and excited to learn. Looking forward to using Roman Candle Tours again!

We did 2 tours, the Colosseum & Ancient City Private Tour and the Vatican City Private Tour, and they were both amazing! Our guide was Jerry and with the combination of his knowledge and his enthusiasm we were all fully interested and engaged (kids and adults included). It's one thing to see the monuments but it's another to have someone... More

Roman Candle Tours tailor fit a tour that fit the travel schedule of our family. On the first day, our guide Filippo met us at the Colosseum and gave us an overview of Roman history, then we walked to the Palatine Hill and ended up in the Roman Forum. He made it interesting for my children who are 8 and... More

My husband, 12 year old daughter and enjoyed three Roman Candle tours, Colosseum/Forum, Vatican and Ostia Antica with Jerry in March 2016. All three were fantastic and Jerry was knowledgeable and helpful, enabling us to make the most of our visit. Scheduling and planning were a breeze with Matt as well, as he tailored our experience and offered helpful advice... More
